Air Sketch - App Review



Wouldn't it be useful to be able to display the content of your iPad screen on your PC?

This App allows you to do that with two provisos:

Your iPad and PC must be on the same Wi-Fi
The display will be of the App screen (which can include a PDF file).

Now for the ACIDS test:

Aesthetics
To get started, just tap the "●" button and then enter the displayed URL into the browser on your PC. That's setting up completed; it really is that straightforward.

You now see the App which is basically a blank sheet with some icons at the bottom of the screen. Pick one of the colours and pen/brush/marker icon, scribble something on your iPad and it also appears on your PC screen.

There are additional icons at the bottom left of the screen to open and close documents, as well as the very useful undo and redo.

In addition, you can open a PDF document from your iPad and have it mirrored on your PC, by merely using 'Open In' (Air Sketch) within the App where you store your PDF documents.

Cost
The App costs $10 which is considerably less than a cable.

Indispensability
For those times when you need to share your iPad screen with a number of people, and you don't want to knock your heads together, this is absolutely great.

Dependability
It is very rare to find an App which interfaces with a PC where the set-up is so painless. It really does work straight out of the (metaphorical) box.

Security
This App uses your Wi-Fi network, so the inherent risk is if that is not secured.

ACIDS Test Rating:

Very useful.
