MaxiVista turns your iPad into a second monitor for your Windows PC!

Don’t let your iPad gather dust while you work on your Laptop or Desktop – MaxiVista gives your iPad a completely new purpose as an extra monitor.

MaxiVista increases your desktop real estate by up to 40% allowing you to seamlessly move your program windows from your PC to the iPad screen as if it was one large monitor.

Take advantage of the new desktop space and spread windows over both displays to avoid swapping back and forth between overlapping program windows. Your productivity will be significantly increased.

With an increased desktop space you are able to display a word processing software, mail program, media player and instant messenger all at the same time. Or you can also get simultaneous visual access to a massive collection of Photoshop toolbars.

There is no extra hardware required. Instead of using expensive video cable adapters, MaxiVista uses an existing Wi-Fi network connection to transmit the screen contents to the Windows PC.

We have invented this technology in 2003 and MaxiVista has been continuously optimized over the years to provide, probably, the fastest network based desktop transmission available on the market today. The advanced compression technology and the automatic parameter optimization offer you an almost lag-free display performance.

Watch the video demonstration on our webpage to get an idea about the performance of the display transmission.

MaxiVista works with every standard PC running 32/64 Bit Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7 including WDDM drivers.


• Fully automatic configuration. Install & Go!

• Automatic update of the display orientation by simply turning the iPad.

• MaxiVista is the first to support Windows Vista/7 including its latest WDDM video driver technology.

• MaxiVista also works in existing multi monitor configurations.

• The 32 and 64 Bit virtual video drivers are certified for Windows.

• Automatic network parameter detection.

• The iPad’s IP address can, optionally, be configured manually.


• To increase battery life of the iPad, MaxiVista is not designed for full-screen video playback on the iPad.

• The Aero display mode is temporarily disabled while MaxiVista is activated. Aero is automatically turned back on after MaxiVista is deactivated.

• Hardware graphics acceleration such as DirectX or OpenGL, which may be used by Java or WPF applications, is not supported.

My favorite travel app, now standard now for all of my road warriors

All knowledge workers in my company have at least two monitors at their desks. Dual monitors make them more efficient, whether it is a secretary, inside sales rep or the President of the company.

On the road, we used to be stuck with a single display and that put a severe crimp in our normal work habits. This app has made a HUGE difference. If you are accustomed to a multi-display environment you will be VERY pleased with this app.

As far as setup, I use a ThinkPad running windows 7. Most people in my company however are running XP. Some of us have iPad 2's but iPad 1's are more common. Regardless of the device combinations, no setup took more than 3 minutes.

Even without using the 'optimize' button, there is no appreciable delay or scrolling problems. Granted, if you are connecting to a wifi hotspot with a weak signal, you may have more of a problem. Then again, latency is not a problem with the app, but with the place you happen to be at the time.

10$ seems like a lot of money in the iPad software universe, but how much is your time worth to you? What is your effective hourly rate and how much time do you need to save to pay that $10 back?

Awesome program with bum wrap

This is an Awesome program with bum wrap!!

I love this app and would recommend it to anyone but those with little computer knowledge.

For all those people that say this program is not good it is proof that they are absolutely useless on computers and they need to cut the black cord that connects the power to their computers!!

The program works flawlessly!! and there is no sluggishness at all. I did have to make sure my ipad and my computer were on the same network as I have several to chose from where i work. I also had to manually enter my ipad's ip address in the manual connections setting on the desktop and then it connected flawlessly and it was quick and very easy! you will also want to optimize the connection from the desktop app once you are connected to the ipad.

I view live video on the ipad with no lag from the computer if that says anything about how good the app flows over!!

I love this app and would recommend it to anyone but those with little computer knowledge.

This works Great!!

I was hesitant at first about getting this App. After reading the reviews I decided to try it out anyway. The install for my PC was quick and easy. After starting it up for the first time it automatically detected my iPad (Third Gen). I already had the application open on my iPad and it was just a few more clicks to get things running. The program is very easy to use (I think) and it works very well.
I will probably be using it for when I am doing my Homework and will either be having the Teachers notes/PowerPoint’s up or any Data that I need to see.
I was curious about plying video so I opened up one that I had through VLC player. It worked up till I put the entire Video on the iPad. I am sure I just need to play around with it a bit to get it to work the way i want it to though. I am looking forward to playing around with this more.
