Developer's Description

Air Display 3 turns your iOS screen into a wireless (or wired) display for your Mac.

Increase your productivity with extra screen real estate, or mirror your Mac computer display to your iOS device. (Sorry Windows users, Air Display is just for Macs.)

"You have a bunch of different options to turn your iPad into a second display, but we prefer Air Display as the easiest option." "” Lifehacker

For best results, connect via USB for buttery smooth graphics performance.

Air Display has two components: this iOS app and a separate free host app that you install on your Mac.


USB Connection "” For even faster, more reliable performance, you can connect your iOS device and Mac via the USB charging cable.

Pressure Sensitivity "” Use an Apple Pencil, a third-party pressure-sensitive pen, or even your finger to draw or paint into pressure-aware Mac apps like Photoshop and Motion.

Pinch Zoom "” Zoom in to magnify the screen. This is especially useful when drawing or painting details.

Multiple Monitors "” Air Display 3 connects up to 4 iPads simultaneously for powerful multi-monitor configurations.

HiDPI "” Choose Normal, Retina, or HiDPI resolution to suit your taste.

Keyboard "” Type using Air Display's built-in keyboard or any Bluetooth keyboard.

Touch Gestures "” You can control your Mac with intuitive iOS gestures: tap or drag to operate the mouse or tap with two fingers to right-click.
