iPad Apps Capable of VGA Output

All apps are created equal but some are more equal than others.


I love the mirroring capabilities of the iPad 2. This means that a lot of prep work is taken out of the teacher's hands. They can just plug in the VGA adaptor and mirror their iPad screens on a data projector or HDTV.


But what of the guys who were early adaptors. The original iPad did not have this function and they have been trying to work around it since its release. Sometimes they spent an inordinate amount of time planning to present a lesson only to find out at the last minute that the Apps they wanted to use did not support the technology. Some apps can be displayed, mostly videos and slide presentation apps, but not many others. The following are a collection of Apps that all support VGA output. 


At least if we have a list of Apps that support the original iPad technology we can plan to incorporate them into our lesson plans from the beginning - and save some prep time.


It really was an oversight on the part of the developers not to have this code written into more of the education apps. We need to insist that as more apps are developed this is included so the original ipad owners get the benefits of the VGA out for video.

  1. Thank you so, so much for this post... you are saving so many teachers time and frustration! Hopefully we can add more apps to this list very soon.

  2. Great start! Thanks so much. Do you think this could be transferred to a Google Doc or to a wiki so that as more apps are found they can be easily added and others can easily access the revised list?
