]]> 0 MaxiVista turns Your iPad into a Second PC Monitor Fri, 16 Jul 2010 22:20:52 +0000 Read More]]> Turning my iPad into a second monitor was one of the first things I did with it. Luckily there are a number of apps of varying quality on the App Store that allow you to do so. I actually wrote my own in the end, because they weren’t quite up to my needs at the time. It was also a bit of fun for a weekend, believe it or not!

Being able to dock your iPad and have it become a second monitor for your Mac is a great use of the device when you’re at home and not using it for anything in particular, or anytime it’s simply docked on your desk. It could also save you the cost of buying a second monitor if you don’t have one already. Offsetting the cost of the iPad overall.

Well now you can do the same with a PC.

According to Cult of Mac “MaxiVista” is priced similarly to the Mac version (which is called Air Display, incidentally), at $10.

We have not tested it yet ourselves. But two PC users I know say it works as advertised. And the reviews on the iTunes App Store are positive, which is a good sign.

If you pick it up, do let us know how it performs for you in the comments..
