Turn Your iPad into a Secondary Monitor For Windows PC With MaxiVista

Written By Sam on 22 September 2010

MaxiVista is a multi monitor software solution that turns your iPad into a second wireless monitor for your Windows PC. This software permits you to spread your program windows to the iPad screen and helps you avoid swapping back and forth between overlapping windows. This will significantly increase your productivity.

You can free up your primary monitor by moving applications like Skype and Outlook to the iPad screen. This extra display will be particularly useful while working on Photoshop and Illustrator as it enables you to spread your tool palettes to the iPad screen, as if it was one big monitor. MaxiVista can be purchased from the App Store for $9.99.
