Sort of like this iPad app. Is there any way to extend your desktop onto your phone or tablet? Not looking for VNC solutions.

  • I guess I should clarify: I don't want it to just VNC to another running machine, but to essentially use it as a new monitor. Comparable desktop app would be MaxiVista: maxivista.com (which does have an iPad app)

  • Could be possible, one might need to write a virtual driver for the desktop to interface with the android device and extend it as a extended monitor.. (not VNC)

  • All the apps below seem to just stream a portion of your desktop to the tablet. I want one that is recognised as a monitor within Windows. :( Sep 21, 2012 at 13:25

iDisplay is now available for Android.

There's a review on androidcommunity.com

US$4.99 in Google Play.


Not to my knowledge. Both of those solutions you've listed appear to use VNC as the service.


Early this year, arrived for Android:

Air Display by Avatron Software available for 3,79€ in Google Play.

Android 2.3.3 and up.

  • That's now £6.20, and apparently doesn't work with Win8.
