Catching air: Avatron Air Display jumps to Android tablets
More and more, we’re seeing iOS development shops here in town embrace the Android platform, porting popular iPhone and iPad apps over to comparable non-Apple hardware. It makes sense. Especially as Android continues to build an impressive market share.
The latest example of an iOS crew porting to Android is Portland’s Avatron—makers of fine iOS products like Air Sharing and Air Display—who have just announced that your Android tablet can now be an additional display, as well.
Avatron’s lightweight app for Android tablets effectively increases usable screen space by as much as 70 percent while freeing up user workspaces by enabling the repositioning of windows and workflow elements onto a separate computer screen. In addition to the iPad product and the new app for Android tablets, Air Display is also available on Mac OS X, Samsung’s Bada and Intel’s AppUp platforms.
“Android tablets provide strong flexibility and portability for a large variety of functions. However, the effective use of some software applications requires more screen space or a larger workspace to accomplish tasks that require users to spread out with various source materials, even in a coffee shop or hotel room,” said Avatron CEO Dave Howell in a press release. “Because Air Display for Android connects the tablet with the notebook, laptop or desktop computer over a local wireless network, users can position the tablet anywhere around the workspace to maximize productivity.”
