How To Use Tablet As Your Second Monitor

Driving an external monitor with a laptop is quite common now a days. Since it adds a gorgeous display to your work space, it also increases your efficiency at the same time. Whether you're trying to keep up with twitter feed or some website, it acts as a secondary computer which can be tweaked as per your requirement. Since external monitors are not mobile like Tablets are, Tablets can be a better option as a secondary screen for on-the-go users. 

It isn't as easy as hooking up an external monitor but it doesn't requires hacking to make it working either. Here are some Apps which will let you do it in minutes.
