Having inadequate screen real estate to fit within a single screen is often a real problem. Working with complex graphical projects can make a single screen often fall laughably short of the mark, especially laptop screens.
Using a second monitor is usually the only option for most people to circumvent the issues they have with their original screen.
Now, with the launch of Air Display by Avatron Software, everyone has a rather inexpensive solution for the inadequate single monitor problem stated above. By purchasing and installing this $9.99, you get the ability to turn your Android tablet into a second monitor for all your needs, and a wireless one, no less.
You get a great way to interact with content unlike before as you have the ability to use your fingers to browse through material quickly, pinch and zoom to focus on particular parts of your screen, among others.
You need to install a Mac/Windows application after installing the Air Display app. The application is used to search for tablets using Air Display on Wifi, and when you select your own Android tablet, it instantly gets connected to your computer.
Thereafter, both OSX and Windows 7 recognize your connected tablet as an external monitor – meaning that you get the usual options of whether you want to extend the screen space of your existing monitor on your computer, or whether you want your tablet to simply display the same content.
ZDNet tested Air Display with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and ASUS Transformer Prime to great results. However, Avatron, the creator of Air Display, doesn’t guarantee that the app will work as well on other Android tablets.
Nonetheless, there seems to be little not to like about Air Display, as it seems to be a onetime expense of ten dollars for an app that can serve you for a very, very long time.
You can download Air Display app from the Google Play store here.
