3 alternative ways to use your tablet

Tablets are great ways to connect with our friends on social media, stream videos and browse the web. What most people don’t realize however is that they can do so much more. In the technological age we live in tablets are essentially miniature computers that can automate shopping lists, control a TV and create high quality videos. So why not unlock your tablet’s full potential with three amazing things you didn’t know your tablet could do.

 

Create a Work of Art

The creation of art apps have made tablets the new canvases and cases the new easels. There are thousands of apps on the market that allow users to paint, draw, graphic design and animate while on the go. These comprehensive apps feature tools that mimic the strokes of  brushes, pencils and charcoal to create art that looks like it was created in an art studio. Use an Apple Pencil or stylus with your tablet for more creative freedom. When you’re done upload it to a printing service and print it on a canvas to hang in your home.

Tablets have given small businesses and private contractors the ability to service a new group of clients through the use of payment apps.

The Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Tate in England also offer multimedia tours that can be played on a tablet.
