Air Display

Air Display



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.

“Turn your iPad screen into an extra PC monitor with Air Display, and never again miss a new Twitter post, Facebook post or stock market move.” —NY Times

“Setting up the app is as simple as downloading a client for your Mac, and selecting your iPad (running Air Display) from a pull-down menu in the Menu Bar.” —Gizmodo

“There are a number of remote screen-viewing apps for the iPad, but Air Display is the most simple and elegant: It extends your Mac or PC's screen onto the iPad's touchscreen real estate.” —Fast Company

“The app is super simple to set up and use so that anyone can be up and running in no time… If you are running Finale or Sibelius, having all of your toolbars and panels on your iPad is simply great. The touchscreen allows you to simply tap an icon to select. AirDisplay is another app that can help you as a composer be more effective while you work." —AppAdvice.com

Developed by Avatron Software, home of the popular Air Sharing and Print Sharing apps, Air Display lets you position your iOS device next to your computer, drag windows onto it, and interact with those windows as you would on any other computer display.


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 reconfigures.

Air Display makes a laptop much more useful. Adding the iPad's 1024x768 display nearly doubles the screen area of a laptop or netbook.

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 app, 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.

You can choose to connect automatically to Air Display every time you launch the app (Mac only, for now).


Some great uses for Air Display:

• Fill your Air Display screen with your utility apps, like iChat, Mail, iCal, and Calculator.

• Amaze your friends by playing Flash animations on an iOS device!

• Graphic design: Make Photoshop and Illustrator usable on your laptop by putting your tool palettes on the iOS screen.

• Music: Use your iOS screen as a wireless control surface for Logic or Pro Tools.

• Programming: Use the extra display area for such auxiliary development tools as Console, Terminal, and the Debugger.

• Business: Move all of your iWork and Office palettes and inspector windows onto Air Display, and let your document fill the screen.

• Find your own uses.

On first launch, Air Display presents easy instructions for downloading and installing the companion support software for your desktop computer.



Air Display requires 10.5.8 (Leopard) or 10.6 (Snow Leopard) or later, on an Intel CPU. Both 32-bit & 64-bit systems are supported.


Air Display requires Windows XP (32-bit only), or Vista or 7 (32-bit or 64-bit). Windows 7 Starter edition is not supported. Aero and DirectX will be disabled while connected to Air Display, and re-enabled upon disconnection. Display mirroring is not supported on Windows.


Your computer and iOS device must be connected to the same Wi-Fi network.

Windows 7 user

THIS IS LONG DUE TO TRYING TO GIVE AS MUCH DETAILS AS POSSIBLE. i must say that a few moments ago i was very skeptical about buying this app due to all the negative rating from windows users. I bought it anyways just to try it out and see maybe if it might work with my whole situation. Today must have been my lucky day i suppose because the app is working perfectly. The set up i have in which it is running is a large wifi connection of my house running around 100 mps on the desktop the DSL is connected to. Both my iPad 2 and Windows 7 (close to fully loaded) were connected to the wifi before trying anything. After downloading the app, and opening it, they will require you to go to their website and download another "app" for your computer and have options for Mac and Windows. Using Google Chrome, I downloaded and then ran the application then followed the restart as recommended. When my computer came back on the Air Display showed at the bottom in the task bar like said and I right clicked on it then chose my iPad's name. At first nothing particulary happened and my computer said it couldnt find the device. So i just chose the "No device selected" option and tried it again. this time it said that device wasnt found, yet my background was on my ipad? i touched the screen and my mouse appeared on the ipad yet wouldnt go back to my computer. After a few more tried i figured out that i just had my ipad on the wrong side of the screen (default settings are to have the ipad on the left of your computer). Anyways, from what i can tell the only down falls are that when running a program on the ipad screen the mouse and program seem a little laggy, which should be expected due to the screen being wifi connected and a lower screen resoulution than my computer. other than that, the display is wonderful. Some updates could also make the laggy a little better, but i say its still a 5-star app! (sorry for being so long-winded, just trying to give the most info avalible)

5/5 stars

Very cool

This is very quick and easy to set up, and it works pretty much like a 2nd monitor should work on a Mac. It uses a free Mac side app that puts an icon in your menubar to control it. Very simple and straightforward. I quickly set it up to hold my Photoshop palettes clearing my Mac's screen for full screen viewing & editing of my images. Touch control of the iPad screen is neat, too. If Apple made their own 2nd monitor app, it would probably be pretty much just like this.

5/5 stars

Incredibly Helpful!!!

I do audio mixing and use Air Display as an extra dock for my tools in Logic. Effects panels in After Effects and it's also VERY handy to check your coloring results on both your computer and the iPad to make sure you get the right results. Great idea and great software!

The only drawback is the refresh time (can't play movies over it, but that's not an app problem, just a network thing).
