Your iPad may probably be a tablet you use to surf the web, watch movies, organize your daily tasks, take notes and play games. But if you know how to go about your device and the apps that you can download, you may get even more out of your iOS device than you initially thought.
So if you’re wondering what else your iPad can do, here are some nifty things you might want to try yourself:
You’d think that only Android tablets can possibly do this, but you can actually remotely control your home PC through mobile applications like TeamViewer. The app has versions for PC, Mac, iOS and Android. Using the app, you can control your computer on your iPad wherever you are. Just make sure that the computer you want to control is turned on. TeamViewer can also be a great teaching tool for people who want to show how a process is done on a computer. If you plan to just control one PC at work or at home, you don’t have to buy the app as it has a free version. The paid version gives expanded capabilities for professional use.
When you put the tools and services you need to run an office on your iPad, you essentially have a mobile workspace. Apps like RingCentral let you set up online phone services that have expanded functions like faxing and voice mail for you and your office. This could be a great solution if you’re running your own business or you do a lot of outsourcing work with home-based professionals and workers. You don’t actually need a physical office when all your office functions are taken care of on your iPad.
Now, this can be a bit tricky, but if you take the time to learn how to use a few apps together, you may not be limited to iTunes when downloading certain files on your iPad and actually being able to view or edit them. Apps like Filer can download any file through its browser function and then export the files to any file that can specifically read or edit that file. If you want to read comic books, Filer can download the comics then it can export the file to the right app that supports the file extension. Try out the free version that lets you download and store a limited number of files. If you think that you can use the app and would like to queue and store any number of files you want, get the paid version.
If your iPad sees use from your kids but you want certain media and content restricted, you can download iSafebox. This app allows you to transfer certain photos, vides, passwords and others files under its purview, which are then restricted by a password.
