Have two computers? Ever wish you had an extra computer display? There's an app for that! With Air Display, you can turn your Mac into a wireless display, to extend the desktop of your other Mac or Windows computer.

Developed by Avatron Software, home of the popular Air Sharing and Print Sharing apps for iOS, Air Display lets you position your Mac next to your other computer, drag windows onto it, and interact with those windows as you would on any other computer display.


• Air Display's performance is extremely responsive, employing a unique dynamic compression algorithm. On a typical Wi-Fi network, mouse cursor refreshes are indistinguishable from a wired mouse.

• When you disconnect and reconnect, your windows automatically reposition, so you don't have to drag them back onto the Air Display screen.

• You can choose to connect automatically to Air Display every time you launch the app (when connected to another Mac only, for now).

• Can connect over Wi-Fi or Ethernet.

• Runs full-screen or in a window.


1. Purchase this app from the Mac App Store, and install on the computer that you want to use as a second monitor.

2. When you first launch Air Display, it will present easy instructions for installing the companion support software on your other computer.


The host software for your other computer may run on Mac OS X or Windows:


The Air Display host software for Mac requires 10.6 (Snow Leopard) or later on an Intel CPU. Both 32-bit & 64-bit operation are supported.


The Air Display host software for Windows requires XP (32-bit only) or Vista or 7 (32-bit or 64-bit). Windows 7 Starter edition is not supported. Aero and DirectX will be disabled while connected to Air Display, and re-enabled upon disconnection. Display mirroring is not yet supported on Windows.


Your computer and iOS device must be connected to the same local network, either Wi-Fi or Ethernet.
