The cheap and easy way to get a dual monitor set-up.
This App is so much better than I had expected and has given my old iPad a new lease of life as a portable secondary screen with the use of an App and the charging cable!
Duet Display is an App for PC and Mac which allows you to utilise your iPhone or iPad as a display for your Mac or PC. The App was developed by ex- Apple engineers who have made it possible to use an iPad or iPhone as a second screen seamlessly. This has been done before, but not this well! The beauty of it is that it looks and feels like an Apple product and is just as easy to use. This App is so much better than I had expected and has given my old iPad a new lease of life as a portable secondary screen with the use of an app and the charging cable!
For just £13.99 you can use your iPad as a secondary display. Many of us like to utilise a secondary display to increase productivity and this is ideal when we are on the move. For those using their laptops on the move and especially for those displaying information for customers or colleagues the iPad can be used to exhibit information.
The screen needs to be tethered using a cable and works just as well as any static secondary display. There is no lag at all and is a very high quality. It works on all age iPads or iPhones so great if you have an old iPad knocking around like I did- it is like acquiring a free high quality screen which is portable. When you are done, you just disconnect the wire and both displays will go right back to normal. I would not recommend using this for your iPhone as even the 6 plus does not create much space… althouhj
If you are concerned about how you will use your iPad as a functional display, there are a few stand and clip connection solutions you can choose from. I like the Ten One Design “Mountie” which connects the screen with a discreet and portable clip. It is worth considering how you will mount your display before you buy the app.
