Duet Dis­play

Turn your iPad into a sec­ond Mac dis­play

Mac Format - - RATED | IOS APPS -

£11.99 De­vel­oper Rahul De­wan, duet­dis­play.com

Works with iPhone, iPod touch, iPad Ver­sion 1.0.0

A sec­ond screen can be handy while mo­bile, ei­ther for mon­i­tor­ing your email at a busy time, or for ex­tra tools in pro­duc­tiv­ity or cre­ative apps. This is where Duet Dis­play comes in, let­ting you use an iPad as a wired ex­tra mon­i­tor.

The re­quire­ments are sim­ple: a Mac that can run OS X 10.9 or higher, and any iOS de­vice that can run iOS 7 or higher (though an iPad is best). Grab the free util­ity from Duet­dis­play.com and in­stall it on your Mac, buy the app on your iPad, connect the de­vices, launch both apps and you’re ready to go, your iPad charg­ing from your lap­top as you work.

There’s ef­fec­tively no dis­play lag, as there can be with wire­less al­ter­na­tives, and while you can tap on items on your iPad screen, it’s much bet­ter as a dis­play for static in­for­ma­tion you don’t need to in­ter­act with. Kelly Gui­mont

A use­ful por­ta­ble pro­duc­tiv­ity util­ity. Just be aware of its ef­fect on lap­top bat­tery life.
