One of my favorite apps on the iPad is Air Display, which turns my iPad into a wireless additional monitor for my MacBook. Windows users ask me frequently when it will be released for that platform. The answer is “not yet,” but a similar app is now available that can do the same thing. MaxiVista is now released for the iPad bringing the same useful functionality to Windows-using iPad owners.
I showed on video why Air Display is so useful to me. The video below showing MaxiVista looks very similar. You can use it as an external monitor for your Windows PC, and it behaves just like any other monitor. The advantage is that it’s wireless and portable, enabling a two-monitor setup on trips. MaxiVista is $9.99 at the App Store.
