Idisplay App Turns Your iPad Into a Secondary Wireless Monitor
April 3rd, 2010
Thanks to my own stupidity, I didn’t realize that today was a Saturday when I ordered my iPad last month, so I had my iPad shipped to my office location which isn’t open on the weekends. So even though my iPad will be still sitting in the UPS warehouse until I can get it on Monday, I just keep getting more excited about some of the possibilities for my new gadget when it does finally arrive. While everyone keeps saying “it’s just a giant iPod Touch,” I say “so what if it is?” when I see clever ideas for apps like this.
Shape Services iDisplay connects your iPad to you Mac desktop and lets you wirelessly extend your screen onto your iPad’s display. It also works on the iPhone, but why you’d want to extend your display onto a screen that small is anyone’s guess. Now, the initial reviews for iDisplay are definitely mixed, but this is a version 1.0 product, and all of the complainers are using iPhones, not iPads, so keep that in mind.
iDisplay is available over at the iTunes App Store for just $4.99 (USD) if you want to check it out.
