Celio Corp has announced the launch of REDFLY ScreenSlider and ScreenSlider Pro, two new Android applications that allow smartphone and tablet owners to use their device as a second PC display.
ScreenSlider allows an Android device to be used as a wireless external display, allowing users to view email, widgets, Facebook and other applications on their tablet, all while working on their primary computing display.
ScreenSlider Pro is an in-app upgrade for ScreenSlider and allows users to continue work even when away from their desk. The Android app supports pinch-to-zoom on Windows apps, mirror mode viewing from the Windows desktop as well as right/left click functions on their touchscreen.
“Most people who own a tablet keep it turned off and in its case for most of the day while working on their PC or laptop”, said Celio Corp CEO William H. Flury.
“With ScreenSlider, you can put the tablet you already own to productive use as a second display and also use ScreenSlider Pro to control your PC from the couch or conference room when your PC is in another room or office”.
ScreenSlider is now available from the Android Market for $0.99 (50% off the regular price as a special launch promotion). ScreenSlider Pro is available from within the ScreenSlider app and offers a free 30-day trial. After the trial period is over, the app can be purchased for $4.99 (50% off the regular price as a special launch promotion).
ScreenSlider works on any smartphone running Android 2.2 and tablet with Android 3.0. The app will soon be available for the iPad.
For the desktop version, ScreenSlider is currently compatible with Windows XP, Windows Vista (32-bit) and Windows 7 (32-bit or 64-bit), while support for Mac OS X will be offered in the first half of next year. Users can download Windows versions via the Celio website.
