So what exactly do you use your tablet for?

A friend told me once that she doesn?t think tablets are useful. Smartphones and laptops can do the things it can do better. She also said that it is just a waste of money. Why buy a tablet when you can use your other gadgets for the same purpose?

I thought about the things she said and wondered. Yeah, she?s right. Aside from using it to play games and access apps, what good can it do to you?

Here are some tasks your tablet can be helpful at:

  • Use it as your?dSLR assistant. Yes, you can control your dSLR using an Android device. Download the DSLR Android app and use your USB On-the-Go adapter. You can use them with your tablet to have access to different advantages like better focus, time-lapse photography and sharing of your photos instantly. Just connect it and every function available on your camera will show on your tablet?s screen.


  • Turn your Kindle Fire into a jukebox. Sing along to your favorite songs using your tablet. Upload the songs to Amazon?s Cloud Player or stream them via services like Pandora and Spotify. Isn?t that one cool cloud-connected music system?
