Would you like to have dual monitors without a significant investment? Duet Display may be just the answer!
Duet Display is an app that allows you to connect your computer to your smart device (tablet or phone) as a second monitor. Originally created by ex-Apple developers for professional use, Duet Display also works great for a home office, remote work, or the classroom. Basically, any place you want a portable second monitor. Markus and I both use multiple monitors. We have found that dual monitors are a great way to manage multiple processes as well as increase productivity and efficiency.
For just $9.99, the Duet Display download connects Windows, iOS and/or Android devices. I use Duet Display to make my iPad Pro 12” tablet a second monitor for my Surface Pro.
Duet Display is as simple as 1-2-3 to set up (wired or wireless) and easy to use. To create a wired connection between my Surface and my iPad, I use a lightening to USB cable. A wired connection is useful when Wi-Fi may not be available or when your Wi-Fi signal is low. For a wireless connection, just follow the app instructions to pair devices.
