Use your iPad as a second monitor

One of the most interesting PR emails to hit our inbox today was about an app called iDisplay from SHAPE Services, creators of the popular IM+ messaging app. Simply put, iDisplay lets you use your iPad as a second monitor for your Mac. It remains to be seen how well it performs, but nobody can deny that this is a brilliant idea, and $4.99 ain’t too bad of a price either. Apparently, the app requires a special software component running on the machine you’re using the iPad with, so it’s still not the perfect solution for people that use many different computers, like the ones in libraries, but we are still eager to try this out.
