So – you’ve just purchased a shiny new iPad, PlayBook or Android tablet, have you? Tablets open up a whole new world of technology and can be incredibly entertaining and useful machines for all sorts of circumstances. Let’s take a quick look at three tips to help extract the most fun and enjoyment from that new tablet.
There’s Always an App for ThatNo matter what you want to use your iPad or Android tablet for, there’s a high probability that someone has created an app for that specific purpose. Spend some time browsing through the various categories of apps that are available for your tablet and be sure to try out any that catch your eye. Whether it’s using your tablet as a fitness tracker or to determine exactly where certain constellations of stars will be appearing in the night sky, there is an app for nearly every interest and conceivable task.
Keyboards and Other Accessories can Really HelpWhile most individuals usually have one or two specific purposes in mind when buying a tablet, such as watching movies while traveling or playing games, they quickly discover that their new tablet is capable of much more. If you find yourself constantly writing emails on your tablet, consider buying an inexpensive keyboard that can save you the strain of typing on a touchscreen for long periods of time. Conversely, if you find that you are drawing on your tablet with your fingers on a regular basis, take a look at a stylus that can make drawing on glass far easier. There is a massive market for tablet accessories for a reason: cases, stands, keyboards and other accessories can greatly improve your tablet experience.
Remember your ‘Tablet Ergonomics’
Since the first iPad came on to the market, users started noticing that their neck and eyes were subject to strain after long periods of tablet use. Tablets are no different than computers in this regard, and proper ergonomic practices can end up saving pain and discomfort over the long term. Take regular breaks, stretch and be sure to have the room adequately lit when using your tablet. Your body will thank you for it!
There are limitless uses for tablets like the iPad with more apps and accessories being created on a regular basis. Tablets truly look to be the future of computing, so if you haven’t taken the opportunity to play around with one get out there and try one out today!
