“You have a bunch of different options to turn your iPad into a second display, but we’ve had the most consistent luck with Air Display.”

Air Display is the easiest way to turn almost any spare screen into an extra display for your computer. 


Wirelessly connect to an iPad or Android device from your laptop to create the ultimate road-warrior workstation. 
Or repurpose any nearby Mac or Windows PC to give yourself more screen real estate for your main Mac.
Air Display connects easily, allowing you to extend or mirror up to four screens at once to create unique and powerful presentations or to improve your creative workflow in whatever way you choose.

NOTE: Air Display 2, the latest version that was compatible with Windows, is no longer available in the App Store.
