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 Android screen as a wireless display, to extend your computer desktop. In order for Air Display to work, your computer and Android device must be connected to the same Wi-Fi network.

Like a wired monitor, Air Display works in two ways:
(1) Extend your computer screen onto a second screen, or
(2) Mirror the contents of your computer screen onto your Android screen.

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 by increasing its usable screen size.

Air Display not only gives you a wireless computer screen extender or mirror, 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, painting tool, or music control surface. Simple gestures allow you to operate the right mouse button and scroll wheel. 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 Android screen.

Some great uses for Air Display include:

- Fill your Air Display screen with your utility apps such as iChat, Mail, iCal, and Calculator.
- Graphic design: Make Photoshop and Illustrator usable on your laptop by putting your tool palettes on the Android screen.
- Music: Use your Android 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.

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

Mac OS X compatibility: Air Display Host requires Mac OS X 10.7 or 10.8 or later.
Windows compatibility: Air Display Host requires Windows 7 or 8. (Windows 7 Starter Edition is not supported.)
Both devices must be on the same Wi-Fi network.

    I have Windows 8.1 and an older motoroloa xoom and it works great. Took me about 15 minutes to get all set up. I had to play with the display settings in the windows control panel > display > change display settings. I arranged them so that my ta

    Still can be buggy occasionally, but much smoother. Downside to being wifi-only (without workarounds, that is) is that connection can be quite sluggish. On a good network there is still a noticeable delay at times, but it is pretty reliable, nice way to u

    Great app if you just want to de-clutter your workspace, however the lag can be really frustrating sometimes. I won't be using this as a permanent set-up, I'd much rather spend the money to get a somewhat decent monitor. On the other hand, this makes a gr

    It's useless... and not just that. I installed the software they asked me to install in the Android app for Windows 8.1 and then started up the application in Windows. Then I was supposed to find the Air Display icon in the system tray, which of course w

    Money is no object when it works as advertised, and this app totally does. I was up and running in 2 minutes. Windows 8.1 to Nexus 7 2013. You dont get a full 30fps, so video playback is a bit choppy, but it has to be expected from that kind of solutio
