Use Air Display to turn your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch into a wireless display for your computer. Increase your productivity with extra screen real estate or mirror your Mac or Windows computer display to your iOS device.

For Mac users, Air Display now connects up to 4 iPads simultaneously to create unique presentations.

Air Display consists of an iOS app and a separate free app that you install on your computer. Both your computer (Mac or Windows) and iOS client (iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch) must be on the same Wi-Fi network to use Air Display.

The reviews for this app are pretty negative.

2 1/2 stars and a lot of people saying it has serious negative performance effects on computers including macbooks.

Does anyone have experience with it, and can vouch for it? I really want to download it but $10 is steep for potentially non-functional app.

EDIT:
I just downloaded and used for ~1 hour. Using to sync new Macbook Air with new iPad.

The iPad has about a 1 second lag, and is very choppy. It's like video conferencing lag quality, with probably 8/10 video quality.

So it's not good enough to code on, or really do work that requires responsiveness. I was using it to show Slack (chat) and have my console / command line open. Works fine for these.

BUT it also makes your laptop and main screens lag! So I'm uninstalling it. I guess the 1 star reviews were justified in this case :/

Cool attempt, but we need something with better performance before its usable.
