Splashtop Update Turns Your iPad Into A Second Monitor

We introduced you to Splashtop a few months ago, a mobile app that gives you a connection to your PC or MAC when you’re away from home. But late last week, an update to Splashtop was released and we just had to tell you all about it!

The new update to Splashtop features a battery of improvements that makes the app easier to use, more secure, and even turns your iPad into a second monitor on your PC. The update optimizes the new iPad’s retina display to the fullest extent, creating a richer, cleaner user interface. It also enhances the reliability of the app over any network, wired or wireless.

The greatest part of the update is the addition of Splashtop XDisplay. This new feature lets you turn your iPad into an additional monitor for your PC. With full audio and video support, pinch-to-zoom capabilities, and support for Windows 7 Aero display, XDisplay is an update worth taking a look at.
