Normally when we are working on a laptop or any other device, we like to connect an external monitor to it for the purposes of convenience or mobility. REDFLY ScreenSlider (currently on sale for half the price at Google Play) is one such technology which helps you to connect your android device as an external monitor to your laptop or desktop system.
How to Connect the Device?
There is no hard and fast rule to connect the machine to the android device, as long as you have the REDFLY ScreenSlider technology installed and enabled in your system.
Just download the free ScreenSlider windows application for your computer and also install ScreenSlider on your Android tablet or phone from Google Play. Ensure that the wi-fi connection is enabled so that both the devices, namely the laptop and your android device are connection to a common LAN. Once this condition is met, it is hardly a two minute’s job to ensure that the android device acts like an external monitor to the system, whether it is a laptop or a desktop.
There is a separate procedure to be followed when you are making this connection for the first time, and later on when you are connecting, you need to follow a certain procedure each time. Needless to say, if you take one of the two connected devices, outside the range of the local area network, the connection gets broken and you will not be able to reconnect unless you enter the effective range again. Of course this range depends on the power of the modem or the wi-fi router; the more the range, the more the distance you can move around without being disconnected.
Just imagine the amount of fun you can have while using this technology. You can simply run a movie from the DVD drive of your laptop and then instead of sitting glued to your screen, can just move around freely while watching the movie.
Similarly when you have to go to the kitchen to cook something and want to monitor some process going on in your system at the same time, your handy device could simply connect as the external monitor. Having a remote connection between two computers either in terms of screen sharing or remote screen viewing is not new, it is just that REDFLY ScreenSlider technology has made it easy and also helps to connect your Windows or Linux based systems to interact with the android based devices. This interoperability would go a long way to ensure that you do not get stuck with a single operating system.Tags: androidlaptoptablet pc
