DisplayLink has announced a new app for the iPad that turns the Apple tablet into a secondary screen for your display. This isn't the first app for this type, but it's the first to come from DisplayLink App and it makes the iPad a secondary screen for Windows notebooks.

This is a great way to get more screen space on your notebook if you already own the iPad without having to purchase a new screen and makes it easy to take a second screen with you on the go too. The app is compatible with Windows 7, Vista, and XP. DisplayLink says the app is not meant to be used for gaming.

Running the app the iPad can operate in uncompressed Windows 7 Aero mode and the configuration for the app is done using the DisplayLink Windows graphics display. When the iPad is disconnected, the display will reposition automatically. The app is also very cheap; you can buy it now for $1.99.
