Air Display gets Windows Support

Air Display is an app that you run on your iPad that allows you to expand the screen real estate of your computer.

Until now, Air Display has only been available to install on Mac based computers. No Air Display Windows software existed that allowed you to send the contents of a second screen on to your iPad.

The software is relatively easy to use on the Windows PC side of things. All you need to do is download the app on the iPad, download the accompanying software on to your Windows based PC, set up a few options such as iPad location in relevance to your laptop/computer screen and you are good to go.

Price wise, Air Display costs $10 for the app to download, and the Windows client software is free to download.

We haven’t had a chance to test it just yet, but will be doing soon to see how it compares to alternatives available. The main problem we have seen in the past is related to the refresh rate when dragging windows around. However, if you want to use it for IM’s and other notifications then the external iPad display options will work well. Just make sure you get a stand to hold your iPad upright for you.

  1. That was just badly worded on my part. I have corrected it.
