    Imagine you´re in a tough spot and you have to use your PC with the screen broke down. Or you want to sin comfortably in the couch and view what´s on your PC through your mobile device. Can you do it. Yes, you can. And that without too much fuss. The solution is called Air Display and it is available for a wide range of devices. It can work with your Android or iOS device, as well as your Mac or Windows PC. It uses the wireless technology so no cables are required and depending on your connection you have total freedom.

    Air Display requires that you first purchase the app for the mobile platform of your choice. It does not come cheap but it´s not expensive either, going for about $10. After that you need to setup the drivers on your PC, be it with Windows or Mac. It can also provide PC to PC connections, like Mac to Mac or Mac to Windows. After installing the software setting it up will be very easy. One disadvantage that you should be aware of is that it doesn´t work with Windows 8, though support for it should be available soon enough.


    You are welcome to visit the developer´s dedicated webpage for full setup instructions.
