How to Use Your iPad as a Monitor with Duet
With the release of the larger than life iPad Pro, more interest has been generated in using the massive screens as secondary monitors to iMac and Macbook setups. Following that line of thinking, the app Duet has just rolled out some improvements that make it that much easier to get even more use out of your iPad.
Duet Display is just a cool $9.99 in the App Store, and allows users to setup their tablets as secondary monitors, even allowing users to enable split screen multitasking in the latest version of El Capitan, thanks to performance improvements from the developers.
With the app, you can even divide the use of your iPad’s screen between Mac and iOS apps, keeping one side dedicated to one OS – how sweet is that?
The only downside to this setup is the wiring – you do have to tether your iPad to your Macbook or iMac with a USB cable to get it to work. It’s not a perfect system, with small glitches occurring sometimes as you work between the two displays, but there’s no doubt that this app coupled with the big beautiful iPad Pro were made for each other.
And I mean hey, at less than $10, you can avoid having a dedicated secondary display taking up space, add another function to your tablet, and get some major multitasking power – money well spent.
