Avatron Software’s Air Display app, which allows you to use your iPad as a secondary display for your computer that we looked at when it was first released in May, was recently updated to add compatibility with PCs running Windows. Air Display requires a companion app on the computer with which the iPad is to be used and this was only available for the Mac operating system previously. Now, iPad owners with a PC running Windows XP, Vista, or 7 can take advantage of this useful app.
The app’s description provides more detail on its new Windows compatibility:
Air Display requires Windows XP (32-bit only), or Vista or 7 (32-bit or 64-bit). Windows 7 Starter edition is not supported. Aero and DirectX will be disabled while connected to Air Display, and re-enabled upon disconnection.
The required desktop companion software can be downloaded from Avatron’s site for free here.
