Ever wish you had an extra display for your Mac or Windows computer? There’s an app for that! With Air Display, you can use your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch as a wireless display, to extend your computer desktop.
- Air Display’s performance is extremely responsive, employing a unique dynamic compression algorithm. On a typical Wi-Fi network, mouse cursor refreshes are indistinguishable from a wired mouse.
- Air Display works in both landscape and portrait configurations. Just rotate your screen, and it automatically re-configures.
- Air Display makes a laptop much more useful. Adding the iPad’s 1024×768 display nearly doubles the screen area of a laptop or notebook.
- Air Display not only gives you a wireless computer screen extender, but also works as a tablet input device. You can use your finger to draw directly on the screen’s surface. Try it with a calculator, painting tool, or music control surface! Simple gestures allow you to operate the right mouse button and scroll wheel.
- You can connect to Air Display from both Mac and Windows. And because it’s a universal app, it works on an iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch.
- When you rotate the screen, or disconnect and reconnect, your windows are automatically repositioned appropriately, so you don’t have to drag them back to the iOS device.
- Air Display provides a keyboard and mouse input on the iOS device. Air Display supports video-out to your TV or Monitor, when used with an appropriate adapter cable.
What’s New In This Latest Version:
If you have Mac OS X Lion and a Retina iOS device, now you can turn on “HiDPI mode.” HiDPI is a built-in Mac OS X feature that makes UI elements render at double resolution. It’s absolutely stunning on a Retina display. By default, Mac OS X disables HiDPI because until now, there has been no Mac display with high enough resolution. Air Display on a new iPad, with its 2048×1536 264-dpi Retina display, finally brings HiDPI to life.
RETINA DISPLAY (Mac OS X 10.6+ only)
Devices with Retina displays now can optionally render at high resolution. You can still choose to view at non-Retina resolutions.
Air Display now uses the full screen resolution when scaling (while doing video out or mirroring a larger device).
