iDisplay for Android review: turn your smartphone or tablet into a 2nd or 3rd desktop display
When we first heard about iDisplay, there was something about it that piqued our curiosity. It extends your desktop onto another screen -- your Android or iOS device, to be exact -- and while that sounds cool, its actual usefulness isn't immediately apparent.
All you have to do is install the app on your Android device (2.1 or newer), run the server program on your Windows or Mac PC, and then connect from your phone. Voila! An extended desktop.
In theory, it sounds as easy as pie -- and we'd be lying if we said the concept of extending your screen to your mobile device didn't appeal to our the inner nerd -- but in practice, iDisplay for Android is an untamed beast that doesn't really do what it's meant to do.
