IDisplay Updates With Improved Speed, Lower Latency and More
iOS / Android / Mac / Windows: iDisplay, a utility that turns your tablet into a fully functional second screen for your computer, just updated with more speed boost, much lower Wi-Fi latency, support for Android tablets, OS X El Capitan and much more.
We mentioned iDisplay before , but then it was only iOS, Mac and Windows. Since then, the platform has been supporting Android devices, and the latest update offers huge speed improvements and lower latency, making it much more sensible to use your tablet as a second screen when it’s connected to the same Wi-Fi network. Fi network like your Mac or Windows. The latest version supports OS X El Capitan, and there is a beta version of Windows 8 (Windows 10 is still not supported, but according to the developers it will be coming soon).
However, the speed improvements in the new version are getting closer and closer to solving the big problem of using tablets as a second screen – they’re just not fast enough to be worth it. Now you can watch your social streams update in real time without clicking on the display, or even typing on your tablet from your desktop, without waiting for what you said.
Despite this, it is still expensive. Desktop apps are free, but mobile apps are where you’ll spend your money. The iOS version costs $ 10 and the Android version costs $ 5 . If you’re looking for alternatives, we have our favorites here for iOS and here for Android .
