Responding to the March 2012 Technology Q&A topic “Monitoring the Field” (JofA, page 69), reader Scott Bollenbacher says his firm (Bollenbacher & Associates LLC, of Portland, Ind.) uses the $9.99 iPad app MaxiVista (tinyurl.com/6nnvpkz) to wirelessly convert its staff’s iPads into external monitors for use with their laptop computers in the field. This solution provides each user with dual monitors without anyone having to carry bulky desk monitors. Bollenbacher said this solution “has worked out great for us.” Other apps that allow iPads to be used as a second monitor include the $9.99 AirDisplay (avatron.com) and the free DisplayLink (tinyurl.com/6b48g6n).
