Present from a new perspective with Tether.


Tether connects your iPad to any Mac computer, enabling you to present, teach or demo from anywhere in the room.

The Tether Mac OS app + Tether iPad app work in tandem, so you’ll need both to get started. The Tether iPad app is available for download on the iTunes App Store: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/tether-interactive-whiteboard/id473781122?mt=8



Tether connects your computer screen to your iPad, allowing you to control the presentation easily, intuitively and from anywhere in the room. When tethered, your stationary computer responds in real time, so what you do on your iPad instantly shows up on the main display.

Tether makes it easy to remotely control your computer by turning your iPad’s screen into a mobile track pad. There’s no monthly service charge, and you don’t need extra equipment – just the Mac OS app, the iPad app and a simple Wi-Fi connection.

You can link up to virtually any Mac OS computer, from desktops and laptops to tower-controlled projectors. The interface is simple, intuitive and uses same screen gestures that you already know and enjoy.


• Single tap + drag to move the cursor

• Double tap to select

• Double tap + hold to drag your selection

• 2-finger single tap to trigger the right-click menu

• 2-finger drag to scroll in any program

• Pinch and Spread to zoom in and out


Tether enables you to interact with your audience while operating fluidly among them. For those who find movement conducive to their work, Tether allows you to move about the room without delaying your lesson plan or breaking your rhythm.

Control your classroom from the back and minimize the distractions. Bring the podium directly to your students and interact with your class like never before.


We are proud to call Tether a Shiny MEDL Object. You can see all of them at www.medlmobile.com. And if you have an idea for an app that you’d like to see on the App Store someday, visit www.appincubator.com.

This is so cool - So I don't do much presenting but I am always in need to take notes to items on my computer screen. With Tether I can draw the notes from my iPad directly onto the documents. Then I can save and share my notes to any colaborators on the project. I'm in love with this product!!!

Review by AmandaMathTeacher

Disappointed - I am a teacher and bought this app for my Macbook Pro and iPad for my classroom. I am very disappointed that I spent $24.99 to buy it and it does not work like the description stated. I have a Mimio Pad that can control my computer and write on documents but I was hoping to use my iPad. I expected this app to do a better job than my Mimio pad but it failed. It is a neat concept but that's it. I can control my Macbook but my finger does not fluidly connect with the mouse. I have to put my finger on the mouse to drag it. It would be nice to put my finger anywhere on the iPad and the mouse move there. When I use the draw feature, the handwriting is awful. It only draws in short straight lines to form a letter or number. The drawing shows up on my iPad only. I expected it to show up on my Macbook as well so I would only have to connect my Macbook to my projector.

Michael Roadruck - I have never written a review before but am so disappointed in this app that I had to express my displeasure and disappointment with this app. It does not recognize my computer on the same WiFi network and the only help is on Facebook which I will not join. I need to pay more attention to these reviews..
