Most of us want more screen space, far less of us want to drop $800 on a monitor to park next to our laptop. Let’s not forget nobody is going to bring a big, clunky monitor with them on the road. Although, I did see a man at Starbucks not long ago with his entire desktop setup in the corner playing Minecraft. Okay, aside from him.
Duet Display is a $14.99 app that allows your iPad to run as a second monitor next to your MacBook laptop. The app was developed by ex-Apple engineers, providing lag-less full resolution at 60 frames per second with only the use of the lightning cable you already own. Not only do you now have a second Retina level display, it’s also being charged the entire time you’re using the app.
Duet Display works with any iPad running iOS7 and above, all Mac laptops on OSX 10.9 and up, and even on iPhones if you want. Head on over to the Apple App Store here on your iPad and grab Duet Display today.
