Air Display

Desktop Software Tools
Air Display allows extra screens to extend the display size of a Mac desktop. The company behind the product is Avatron Software, which was founded in 2008. Other software by the company includes Air ...Stylus, Everydisk, Air Login and Air Sharing. The founder of Avatron Software, Dave Howell, founded another company dedicated to music apps called Muphos, and for the most part, it seems that the development team at Avatron Software has moved on to other endeavors, as most of their software has been retired (the last blog post on the website is a sale from the end of 2016). Air Display might be the exception, as it's the only product listed on the website as current. It is currently on its third version. Read moreless

My Opinion on Air Display
written by grex on 2018-03-02 04:26:15
Ease of Use
Customer Service
Value For Money

Overall Opinion: The need for extra screen space on a computer is a common one. Additional monitors are great for graphic design, research papers, gaming, and pretty much any other application one can think of. But what if the extra screen could be wireless? Avatron Software's Air Display is the answer. Installing air display allows a MacOS computer to communicate with another screen or device to extend the display area of the desktop. For example, an extension or mirror of the current display can be put on an iPad, iPhone, Mac device or even a Windows PC. If the extra screen is touch compatible, it will work as a touchscreen for the desktop device. Air Display requires Mac OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion) or newer.

Pros: The driver for the main computer is free to download Techinical support for the product is available Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern Time, according to the Avatron Software website Questions can be emailed to

Cons: The main device can only be a Mac OS X system if using Air Display 3

grex is using Air Display every other week recently.


  • Can be set up in less than 5 minutes
  • A Windows PC can be used as the extra screen
You can always update Air Display to add more features!
