Sometimes an extra monitor would come in handy when using Windows PCs or Macs, and this app turns the iPad onto an extra monitor for just ten bucks. It does it wirelessly over Wi-Fi, the best way.
Air Display takes full advantage of both OS X and Windows, so the iPad works just like expensive monitors. The iPad can be rotated between portrait and landscape orientations as needed, for whatever works best in any given situation.
There are games and then there are games that totally engage the player in a simulated environment. This one is firmly in the latter camp, taking full advantage of the Retina Display. Simple touch controls are employed to help your hero get through some nasty situations.
If you've ever wished you could run Windows or OS X on your iPad, Splashtop makes it so. This remote desktop program gives full control over a remote PC or Mac, using a nice touch interface on the iPad.
Splashtop allows full video/audio streaming from the remote system, providing a great experience on the iPad with no lag. It is easy to set up and use, and an app that most everyone can find a good use for in the toolkit.
