Air Display

Don’t you sometimes wish you had some additional screen space when working on your computer? The easy solution to this would be getting an extra monitor, but these are bulky and costly. Mini Display can easily solve your problem by transforming your iPad into an external display. This way, you can use your iPad as a second screen to display additional content.

When I first bought my iPad, one of the first apps I installed was Air Display. I figured that using it in tandem with my MacBook Air would give me a great way to gain extra screen real estate, particularly when I’m on the go. After talking to a few of my buddies about the subject, it turns out that they too were using their iPads for the same reason.

So what about you? Do you use your iPad as a second display for your Mac? Let us know in the poll to the right.

Earlier this week Scott Danielson took a look at some of the great things it’s possible to do with Air Display, you can read his article here. Now I’m happy to announce that we have 4 promo codes available for some fortunate readers to get their hands on!

Air Display is a great app that gives you the ability to turn your iPad into a secondary display, by using your local Wi-Fi network. The possibilities are virtually endless, with Air Display giving you a whole new way to use and appreciate your iPad.

At $9.99 it’s a great buy, but here is a fantastic chance to get all of that functionality for absolutely nothing!


Earlier this week we reviewed Air Display, a fantastic app that turns your iPad into a second monitor for your Mac or PC. The simple fact is that there’s not a great deal to the app itself, once you connect it with your computer (with a downloadable client that sits in your menubar), it doesn’t really function like an app at all.

What Air Display does do, though, is turn your workspace into a rather unique one. With Air Display you have a second screen that, while not really big enough for you to call your set up a “dual monitor” workspace, gives you extra space that’s not only versatile but touch sensitive as well.

I’ve been playing around with Air Display, developed by Avatron Software, and I’ve discovered that it helps create a workspace that, particularly if you’re a creative, can improve your workflow in ways a standard second monitor can’t. Read on to find out how.


In today’s world of light notebook toting individuals and mobile society, many of us forget the large displays of our desktop computers and look forward to the small displays of our Macbook Air and ultraportable devices.

Sometimes, however, the small displays on our notebooks just don’t cut it in terms of screen real estate for some projects or applications. Sometimes we need a little extension. External monitors are a great solution to this problem, but what if your iPad could fill that need?

Air Display solves the problem of normal external displays and lets you use your iPad as a wireless external display for your notebook or desktop Mac. Let’s check it out!
