    Hello, everyone! Happy to be here! I've scanned the forum and did some searches, so I know there are many knowledgeable participants here!

    Question: how can I use the iPad to work like an old-fashioned overhead projector ... you know, the kind powered by a lightbulb? I want to hook my iPad up to a "beemer" (projector), draw freehand on the iPad's screen, and have the image displayed in real time on a wall or vertical screen.

    Anyone doing this? What program or app do you use? What projector?

    Many thanks in advance for your assistance!
    :)

    Have you thought about using the video out feature of an app like Sketchbook Pro and a normal projector?

    WebPad Lite

    I found an app that I like for the drawing end of it ("WebPad Lite" does exactly what I need). Now all I need to do is to figure out how to project ("mirror"?) what I'm drawing onto a wall or screen.

    I will also check-out Sketchbook Pro. Many thanks!
