Working on a notebook if you are used to working from a desktop can be difficult thanks in part to the small screen that you get even on larger notebooks. If you are like me and are used to large desktop screens moving around windows and constantly searching for things on your netbook or notebooks small screen gets old fast. If you have an iPad you take with you, DisplayLink has a new app that will turn the iPad into a secondary display.
The new app is called the DisplayLink App and it's not the first app I have seen to turn the iPad into a secondary display. This is the first one for wireless graphics heavy weight DisplayLink though. The app will work with Windows 7, Vista, and XP and works in Windows 7 Aero mode unlike other similar apps on the market.
Configuration of the app is done using the DisplayLink Windows Graphics utility. The display automatically repositions when connected or disconnected and it works with other DisplayLink USB devices. It's not spelled out, but the connectivity is apparently provided by the USB charge and sync cable the iPad ships with. The app is only $1.99 and is available right now.
