Windows Users – Use Your iPad as a Second Monitor

by on July 16th, 2010

Are you a Windows user? Do you often multitask and wish you had a second monitor? Well, there is a new app that will let you turn your iPad into a secondary monitor.

If you don’t already have one, having an extra monitor allows you to move programs and windows around for maximum visibility and usage. Rather than going out and buying a separate monitor, you can convert the iPad into a secondary monitor using the MaxiVista app for Windows computers.

MaxiVista is an app that works using Wi-Fi connectivity and since Wi-Fi is used, you also will not have to worry about adding new cables to connect the two devices (if you have a Mac, you can already use the Air Display app, which will give you similar multi-monitor functionality as MaxiVista for Windows). MaxiVista works with every standard Windows PC running 32 or 64 bit Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7 including WDDM drivers. Here are some of the features:

  • Easy to install
  • Automatic update of the display orientation by turning the iPad
  • The 32 and 64 bit virtual video drivers are certified for windows
  • Automatic network parameter detection

The app does cost $9.99 to download but that price is sure a lot cheaper than going out and buying a new monitor! You can download the app from here.
