A popular app for Mac users, Luna Display, is on its way to Windows PCs.
For obvious reasons, Luna Display does not support Split View (it needs to show you the Mac’s display in full-screen); even though I sometimes wish that was an option (imagine being able to keep both macOS and an iOS app right next to each other!) 3, I can just put other iOS apps in Slide Over on top of Luna Display, and that works well enough. Luna is a cloud gaming service that lets you play games on compatible Fire TV, PC, and Mac devices as well as through web apps on iPhones and iPads. What is cloud gaming? Cloud gaming enables you to play games on devices you already own, without the need to purchase a gaming console or gaming PC.© Provided by Windows Central
Luna Display is a popular app that allows you to use your iPad as a second display for your computer. Previously, Luna Display was only available for Macs, but now it is on its way to Windows. Astropad, the makers of Luna Display, launched a Kickstarter today for the Windows version of the app. The lowest pledge that gets you access to Luna Display is currently $49.
Luna Display utilizes a small dongle that you place inside your PC. That dongle allows your computer to connect to your iPad wirelessly through Wi-Fi, though you can use it with a wired connection if you prefer.
Once connected, Luna Display acts like any other secondary monitor. You can drag apps back and forth between your two displays, interact with touch on your iPad, and even use the Apple Pencil to draw on your Windows apps.
Luna Display earned solid marks when our friends at iMore reviewed it a couple of years ago. The PC version should deliver similar results.
Generally speaking, you need to take caution when committing to a Kickstarter project. You should feel more comfortable with Luna Display, however, as it's been around for years on Mac.
