Software makers Avataron are now ready to turn your iPad into a functional mini-monitor for your Mac with their latest app, Air Display.
The app uses your iPad’s WiFi connection to transmit video data between it and your Mac (although you’ll first have to install a System Preference pane on your desktop or laptop machine). The app even allows the iPad’s touchscreen to be used as a mouse, so you can “click” icons with your fingers on your iPad’s extended desktop.
Pretty neat. Air Display isn’t out yet, but it will be submitted to the App Store next week, and if there aren’t any hiccups, you should be able to download it soon for the price of $9.99… significantly cheaper than even the cheapest of secondary displays.
