PORTLAND, Ore., Oct. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Air Display was the first usable app to let you use a nearby device as a wireless second display, and with the recent update to Air Display 2, Avatron Software has streamlined the interface, introduced multiple-display connectivity, and optimized the video drivers to take advantage of Apple's latest hardware, the iPhone 5s and new iPads.
Air Display 2: Faster, Smarter, Better
"Our primary goals for this new version were to make Air Display even easier to set up and more satisfying to use, and to make it absolutely scream on Apple's new 64-bit iPads," says Dave Howell, Avatron's CEO. "We wanted to make the iPad feel just as responsive as an ordinary computer monitor, but without the wires."
Faster. The Air Display 2 host-client communication is about 3 times faster than the best of class experience in the previous version. Avatron's proprietary video compression protocols now offer crisper performance, tuned to run smoothly on the iPhone 5s, iPad Air, and the new iPad mini with Retina display. "When we first tried Air Display 2 on the iPhone 5s," says Howell, "we were stunned by the graphic fluidity, both in playing movies and in performing everyday computer tasks. The A7 chip changes everything."
Smarter. Air Display's ease of use remains unparalleled. Its new freshness comes from working with the user community to find opportunities to improve. The result is a revamped and reorganized interface, optimized for iOS 7.
Better. Air Display 2 can connect the computer desktop to up to four displays simultaneously with video performance unmatched in its category. With just a click, the user wirelessly extends or mirrors their screen to up to 4 iOS, Android, Mac, or Windows clients at once.
Released in 2010, Air Display has consistently hovered at the top of the App Store rankings for Productivity apps. Air Display 2 builds on that "Best of Class" foundation with multiple display support, an iOS 7-friendly interface, and improved performance, tuned to take advantage of Apple's latest hardware.
