Now this is a cool app, and I’m glad it’s finally here on Android. To my knowledge there isn’t anything like this on Android yet, but I could be wrong as I don’t scour the marketplace everyday. If you’re in need of another monitor you can now use your Android phone with the iDisplay app. Maybe I’ll grab it and give it a t4est run and let you guys know ho wit works. Has anyone out there tried the Android version yet?
SHAPE Services, a leading mobile app developer best known for its IM+ app, today introduced an Android version of iDisplay app, which is already popular on iPhone and iPad. The iDisplay application connects a user’s tablet or smartphone to Mac or Windows PC and turns mobile device into a second monitor. iDisplay for Android is now available in the Android Market for $4.99.
iDisplay is perfect for multi-taskers and those looking to increase productivity as it expands the viewable area of a user’s main monitor. Users can easily increase their display space by moving other needed programs such as IM, Twitter and news gadgets to the external display of their tablet or mobile device, leaving the main monitor free to only display programs for which more viewable room is needed.
Key features include:
- Extends the display – drag items between the two screens.
- Duplicates display – view the same desktop on both the monitor and the Android device.
- 100% Compatibility – works with any Android tablet or smartphone on the market including Samsung Galaxy S, Google Nexus S, Motorola ХООМ, Droid X and HTC Evo. Also supports newest Android 3.0 "Honeycomb"
- Works in portrait or landscape device orientations.
"iDisplay removes the clutter from a users monitor to give them the space they need to focus on the work at hand," said Igor Berezovsky, CEO of SHAPE Services. "It’s the perfect app for those looking to inexpensively increase their screen size."
In addition to the iDisplay mobile app, users will need to download and run a free desktop application, which is available at www.shapeservices.com.
