Here’s 12 SMART ways to use your tablet.
1. Remote controls.
You can download apps to a tablet to control your home, your home theater, your music, and your children. Just kidding about the children. But you can download apps keep track of them, their location, or even monitor what they’re receiving on their phones. Then keep that tablet at your side like a TV remote.
Tablets are high-tech controllers.
2. Safe guard your computer.
If you have a pricy computer and want to relish it for the more important things, use a tablet. Tablets are great for surfing, watching Netflix, movies, gaming, and music. It’s like riding your bike instead of putting miles on your Lamborghini.
3. Great for Taking Notes And Organization
Tablets are great way to take notes and file them. Great for school, classes, meetings, work, and projects of all sorts. You can save your notes and file. Or share! They’re your miniature filing cabinets. As inexpensive as they are, you can have one for every project.

4. Easier to cuddle with.
Sure. You can also take your computer to beddie-by-time, but it overheats, smothered in sheets which slashes life expectancy. You can buy a laptop tray the for bed, but that’s also bulky. Better to invite a slick, good looking tablet to bed instead. And, they’re a much cheaper date too.
Just to prove we’re not crazy, see the bed stands make it oh-so-comfy.
5. Use as your additional screen.
Hook your tablet to your computer as a second Monitor. When I’m writing, it’s hard to switch back and forth between open pages. When I need to research something, check mail, or make a call, I use my tablet instead. I’m able to keep it open for reference and screen shots. I also hook my tablet to my computer as a second screen too.
6. All Purpose Reader on Steroids
Download apps such as Kindle, iOS News Stand, Google Play Magazine, Pocket, comic book readers, Pocket, and more. You can snuggle up with a good tablet every night.
7. Custom Car Dashboard
The newest navigation systems have nothing on you! Mount your tablet on the dashboard and you have navigation, music, traffic updates, and voice activation with the right tablet. Or, improve on the navigational system you already have with the advanced abilities of a tablet.
8. Car TV
Down load some movies or documentaries to entertain the kids on trips. With a few gadgets they hang easily from the back of the headrests. Bluetooth with some speakers and you have a mini-theater. Use them as inexpensive learning tools on laps too. Art, language, books, you name it.
Don’t add breakable TV’s as new car options. Use these!
9. The Cheaper Tablets are great for meetings, service, or projects.
At $45.00 a pop, you can dedicate one tablet for just one purpose. One tablet for meetings. One tablet for the kids. (school year projects, schedule of lunches, appointments, clothing needs, etc). One tablet for shopping, recipes, appointments, goals…Whatever. Say you want to remodel the kitchen, bathroom, or back yard. Dedicate a tablet just for that. All your research, needs, and ideas are in one place. Keep them in specific locations and just watch how much time you save!
This will help her stay organized.
10. Tablets are a walking Media and Gaming Center.
Certain apps and accessories will help you convert your tablet into all the entertainment you need anytime, anywhere. You can hook it up to a 50 inch big screen TV at Bud’s house and watch as many of YOUR movies as you want. Share games!

Most TSA lines don’t require that you remove your tablet in security lines. Their LONG battery allows their use without needing frequent plug-ins. They’re sleek and fit easily in your back pack. The screen is great for watching movies, gaming, or reading.
