5 Things You Didn’t Know You Could Do With an iPad

#1. SpyPad

You can turn your iPad into a SpyPad by using Apple’s very own Find My iPhone app. Find My iPhone can locate any iPhone, iPod, iPad, or other web-enabled Mac device. If you know certain key information about someone’s Mac product, you can find it, and consequently, them. This app is great for parents who want to keep tabs on their children. It is also great for a partner who is worried about the location of their spouse, or their spouse’s potential lack of fidelity. The GPS tracking system is eerily precise and works across the globe.

#2. Scanning

You can turn your iPad into a scanner by downloading the Genius Scan app. Genius scan turns photos into scanned documents. The app automatically detects the edges of a document that you take a photo of, cropping it and allowing you to save it as a PDF or JPG file. This is very convenient and great for things like sharing grocery lists, having a friend look over a document before you sign it, or sharing a written document that doesn’t show up well enough in a standard photo. It is also super easy to send these files to another device over a Wi-Fi connection.

#3. Measure Space

Did you realize you could measure your living room with your iPad? Aim@ is an app that allows you to measure the height, width, or distance from an object by using your iPad’s camera. In order to measure something, you just need to tell the app how tall you are, then hold your iPad at the specified angle. Generally, the app is reported to have a 1 to 2 inch margin of error, but that is still amazingly accurate. While the app does have some slight bugs to work out, it is still a useful tool.

#4. Access Your iTunes Library Remotely

If you have enabled Home Sharing on your Apple device, you will be able to access your iTunes library through Wi-Fi. Simply click the library feature on your iPad’s iTunes, and select the library you want to access. If you have multiple iTunes libraries in one household, this is an especially great tool.

#5. Create a Screen Capture

You can create a screen capture on your iPad, which will then automatically enter your iPhoto library. This is a great way to keep track of a piece of digital information, snap a picture during a FaceTime chat, or send someone a screen shot of your most recent high score. These images can even be transferred over to your computer or other devices next time you sync. To use this feature, just press the Home and Sleep buttons at the same time.

A Piece of the Future

These features, and the many others available, are things that our parents could only dream of when they were our age. Technology is advancing faster than ever before, and we are along for the ride.
