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.

    This is literally the biggest waste of money on an app period. It doesn't work at all so it's completely useless. I was really suckered since i bought it for my iPad and my Galaxy S5 thinking it might work better on one after it didn't with the other but it sucked equally on both. Do yourself a favor and don't even bother with this app. It's a scam. All good reviews are planted!! I tried everythin

    I used to be a very happy user. But the latest ultra high res tablets seem to be moving too fast for the developers to keep up. I upgraded my tablet to a godzilla Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 with the great expectation that it would be an even better 2nd monitor than my previous 10" Galaxy Tab. Sadly, there is no control over resolution and the 2nd desktop from my MBP is at an insane and unusabl

    I came back to this app, which was working before, only to discover that my computer (vista) is no longer supported. I now cannot install the server on my computer. I demand a refund.

    I had a black screen on my nexus 7. My mouse displayed, but no windows showed. The problem is that the instructions tell you to open the Air Display app on the tablet prior to connecting. If you see a black screen, just disconnect (desktop), close the Air Display app (tablet) and reconnect. After that, I could see my desktop. Seems like there is a bug here though. The app should close itse
