Duet: A great iOS app

I’ve been using AirDisplay between my Macbook Air and iPad for sometime and on the whole I’ve been very happy with the setup. Its great to be able to use my iPad as a second monitor and extend my desktop’s display in to it. AirDisplay make the connection between desktop and iOS over a wireless network and there is some lag on slower networks. Although this has never been a huge problem it has at times frustrated me a little.

Today however I received an email form Duetdisplay with their release of the app Duet. They too are offering to extend your desktop on to your iOS device but buy utilising the lightening cable. I have just installed the iOS and the OS X apps and I have to say I’m seriously impressed. There is no lag at all and the resolution looks a lot sharper. The only downside at present is only being able to use one device at a time. AirDisplay allows the connection of multiple devices. Again not a deal breaker for me as I only tend to use my iPad.


If you want to extend your desktop Duet is a great solution and its super easy to set up.
