How To Use Your iPad As An External Monitor

 

Do you know that you can now use your iPad as an external monitor?

Yes, you can!

Inside this video, I show you how to install this app that allows you to use your iPad as an extra screen alongside a Mac computer. You will see exactly how it works and how it gives me the extra space to work with thereby increasing my productivity.

This app has brought my iPad to a different level because now, I don’t just use it to consume content but for actually creating stuff as well. It’s just wonderful!

What do you think about this? Do you also find it cool and useful like I did? Make sure you leave your comments (and questions) below this video.

Talk soon!

  3. [..YouTube..] Hi Gideon
    Check out Powtoon.com or just Google Powtoon – pretty cool animated presentation solution (for those who have a face for radio ;) )

  5. [..YouTube..] Cool stuff Gideon. I’m sitting at a coffee shop right now… wish I could impress my geek colleagues around me with this right now. :)

    Thanks for your content- always killer stuff.

  6. [..YouTube..] thanks for sharing these tips. I can see you’re really enamoured with the ipad. I’ll thinking of getting one soon too.

  7. [..YouTube..] very cool. I have a macbook pro and just a month ago bought my Ipad 3. So I definitely will be getting the app. Thanks for sharing Gideon.

  8. [..YouTube..] Air Display app is 9.99 USD

  9. [..YouTube..] Air Display app is 9.99 USD

  10. [..YouTube..] Its OK as long as you have room to use it,but an external monitor is much cheaper and to take the laptop and the ipad to a cafe or on a train etc will just be a pain.

  11. [..YouTube..] That looks ace and I can see the usefulness of this. I’ve seen this done on the old style monitors and I’ve always thought about doing this. I just need to buy an ipad though first. Thanks for this!

  25. acundy11

    I think it’s pretty cool and useful. Imagine having more than one ipad with this setup going. One for Twitter, Dashboards, feeds, etc.

  26. gabakusa

    i ll give you a tip i think it will look better if you have a white background when you are shoting at the computer cuz it look kinda odd when that background is less whiter than when you are just talking.
    question how can you add something like a movie or nice sign in your background when you are talking like having a brand , etc

  27. dinosdinou

    this super cool :)

  33. projectsparetime

    oh no, it is $9.99 not $2 like you mentioned.. and certainly not free.

  34. I installed something similar just last week for Android called ScreenSlider. There was a competitor to ScreenSlider (can’t remember the name) but it was really laggy and didn’t work as well.

  35. lollies261

    he said he didn’t know didn’t yo listen

  36. fotisgian

    I have missed that function ! Thank you for the info Gideon. Probably it will be useful in the near future for me.

  37. I have missed that function! Thanks for the info Gideon. Probably, it will be useful in the near future for me as I will buy an iPad.

  38. ever since i upgraded to windows 7 it wont work anymore why is that?

  39. ThelDivineArts

    ever since i upgraded to windows 7 it wont work anymore why is that?

  40. WinningWebVideo

    Gideon, your videos are great because they are very educational. I have one suggestion – we know you use Apple products but many of us exclusively uses Windows products. It’s important for us because it’s cost-prohibitive for many of us to switch over. I’ve been very PC active since the early 90′s and started as Windows/Microsoft person. None of my employers used Apple, Sometimes I wished I used Apple but now feel trapped.

  41. felipepbarreiros

    tks, but you took too much to say the app’s name and you said it only once..
    Repetition is awesome when teaching…

  42. felipepbarreiros

    besides, no links to the developer’s web site or app on itunes…

    Hey that’s brilliant Gideon. I’ve been thinking of getting a second screen for my computer in my home office. Love the idea of having this option for travelling too. Now I just need to get an ipad.

  46. [..YouTube..] Yeah it’s definitely great for coffee shops and traveling Janet! And now that I use it as a mobile whiteboard too, it’s just DA BOMB!

    Hi Gideon!

    First of all, I wanna compliment you for your great videos!

    Just 1 question: Could I know who made the Sound Design for your logos and stuff in your videos? Is it you? I love it and I would like to learn something about it…

    Thank you very much, G! :)

  77. Krihoe

  79. Lee Forest

    Thank you for the video. Can you please help me. I purchased the app ($9.99). I enabled HiDPI resolution. (for Retina). The display on the iPad is so small which makes it non useful at all. e.g Safari window full screen on 15″ macbook is displaying at ¼ size on my iPad display. I see on your video that the iPad display is filling up the who screen. Can you suggest a way that I can resolve this?

    I have Macbook Pro Retina 10.8.3 Lion Mountain 2.4 GHz Intel Core I7

    I appreciate your time,
    Lee

  80. Shai Long

  84. silentscope1987

  85. Frederick Fichman

    Excellent, thanks for the tip. To kick it up a notch even further, I got a dongle connector that allows me to connect my iPad to a 21 inch computer monitor…an iPad display on steroids…..

  86. Gideon Shalwick

    Ah cool – what is the dongle called? I wonder if it will work for the iPhone too!

  87. Freevede
