Make Your iPad an Extra Display

Avatron’s Air Display app ($9.99) turns your iPad or iPhone — or even a desktop or laptop computer — into an external display. With your computer and iPad/iPhone on the same wi-fi network, you can stash your panels, tools, and extra controls on the tablet or second computer and use your main display for your working area.

Here’s another use: in a client meeting, you could control a presentation from your laptop, and mirror it on the iPad for the client.

The latest version (Air Display 2) lets Macs use up to four external devices, while Windows is still limited to one.
