If you’re happen to used multiple screen for your office computer, it must be hard when you’re forced to work on single screen while you using your own laptop at home. But, if you have a Mac or Windows based computer, you can achieve similar function using an iPad or Android tablet PC. You can use ‘em both as the second monitor for your laptop or computer!
In order to do this, you’re only have to grab and install the AirDisplay app. It is now available for both iOS and Android. The developer is currently ask $9.99 for it. This application will make your Android or iPad tablet to a 2nd display for your Mac or Windows based computer that connected via WiFi network.

It only takes couple of minutes for AirDisplay to search your tablet on the WiFi network. Just make sure that both tablet and desktop computer are running the application and you won’t find any trouble pairing those two devices.
We are recently experience a slight lag with this app, but it is completely understandable since we’re working on a small WiFi network.

AirDisplay is able to mimic your computer’s screen or extend the display space.
For $10 app, AirDisplay is a perfect solution for those of you who can’t afford additional monitor for your computer.
