What's This?

You want to extend your mac’s screen but don’t have the money for a second monitor. Why not instead use your iPad to expand your screen as a second monitor. Rather than letting your ipad languish unused when you’re at your main computer, use it to extend your desktop.

You only need to do is to use a displayport interface. After splicing the ribbon connector into a displayport cable, you just need to add a backlight driver and you can use the display with any computer. The screen only needs a displayport and USB port to work, but keep in mind that it’s yet not a full solution and still have to do some component searching to get the screen running at a higher brightness setting.

Besides using this hardware materials. There are other solutions as by using the apps available on the market. Some of the apps are.

SplashtopXD

Setting up the application is relatively simple; users need to download both the app and the Splashtop Streamer PC software for the two to communicate with each other.

AirDisplay

Air Display is currently the best desktop-extending app in the App Store and easily outpaces the handful of free and/or similarly priced options. Note: If you’re using Air Display away from a Wi-Fi network you can set up a temporary Ad-Hoc network to bind your computer to your iPad.

Watch the video below to get an overview of how to use it.
