Take Your iPad Multitasking to New Heights With Shiftscreen

September 21, 2021

As the iPad continues to grow more powerful with each passing generation, more users are taking advantage of the tablet as main computer. And Shiftscreen makes multitasking even easier with an external monitor.

You can use an external monitor or AirPlay to connect to the monitor with supports for 60fps.

The big draw is that instead of the letterboxed view that usually shows up when using an external monitor, the app will use the entire screen.

On the monitor, you can open up to six windows. While you can’t open apps, the windows include a web browser, PDF viewers, YouTube and system apps like the calculator.

The app offers full mouse and trackpad support so you can interact with both the iPad screen and external monitor. There are 50 customizable keyboard shortcuts to take advantage of.

And you can even use the app on an iPhone as well.

While it takes some time to get the handle of the app, its a great way to extend an iPad to another screen. There is even a full guide one the app’s site to make the most of the tools.

Shiftscreen is designed for the iPhone and all iPad models. It’s a $7.99 download on the App Store now.
