Air Display 3 turns your iOS screen into a wireless (or USB!) display for your Mac. Increase your productivity with extra screen real estate or mirror your Mac computer display to your iOS device. (Windows users, stay tuned. For now, you want Air Display 2.)
“You have a bunch of different options to turn your iPad into a second display, but we prefer Air Display as the easiest option.” — Lifehacker
Now with Air Display 3 you can also connect via USB for buttery smooth graphics performance.
Air Display consists of this iOS app and a separate free host app that you install on your Mac.
USB Connection — For even faster, more reliable performance, you can connect your iOS device and Mac via the USB cord.
Pressure Sensitivity — Use a pressure-sensitive pen or even your finger to draw or paint into pressure-aware Mac apps like Photoshop and Motion.
Pinch Zoom — Zoom in to magnify the screen. This is especially useful when drawing or painting details.
Multiple Monitors — Air Display 3 connects up to 4 iPads simultaneously for powerful multi-monitor configurations.
HiDPI — Choose Normal, Retina, or HiDPI resolution to suit your taste.
Keyboard — Type using Air Display's built-in keyboard or any Bluetooth keyboard.
Touch Gestures — You can control your Mac with intuitive iOS gestures: tap or drag to operate the mouse or tap with two fingers to right-click.
• Host: Mac OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion) and above
• Windows: not supported yet, but stay tuned! Windows users should get Air Display 2

Thank you for reading. We'd love to hear how you use Air Display to get things done.
Introducing the biggest update to Air Display 3 since the very dawn of time.
IPAD PRO: Now the biggest iPad device ever is a wicked fast HiDPI Mac monitor. We added the new iPad Pro resolutions (Normal, Retina, & HiDPI).
APPLE PENCIL: This stylus is just the coolest thing. Now you can draw in your favorite Mac OS X app with your shiny new Apple Pencil.
PRESSURE: Pressure sensitivity was broken on iOS 9. We fixed it.
BUG FIXES: We found fearsome bugs aplenty and we killed them dead.
NOTE: The new iPad Pro resolution and some of the bug fixes require a host update. Just click "Check for Updates" in the Air Display Host app on your Mac to get the new version.
