3 Things to Add Enjoyment to your iPad

July 1, 2011  |  iPad Tweaks  |  Share

Having an iPad is awesome. The ability to enjoy most of it is limitless. Although iPad already comes with a whole pack of features, enhancement can also be triggered through apps and accesspries. Here are some things you might want to do with your iPad before this goes out from you without enjoying it.

Jailbreak your iPad

The first thing you must do if you want to enjoy the most of your iPad (currently not applicable to iPad 2). By jailbreaking, you can install third-party applications in your iPad that is not approved by Apple. Therefore it will give you the chance to have better and unlimited apps, enable the use of Camera Connection Kit for reading USB Flash Disk or SD Card directories and the capability to browse wider range of apps through Cydia, the premier jailbreak hub.

Use your iPad to Remote Control your PC

There are many apps for controlling a PC remotely, like VNC Viewer and iTeleport. But personally, I would recommend Logmein Ignition. Having Logmein Ignition in your iPad (I assume you installed the software also at your PC for free) allows you to control your PC even if you are in the other side of the world as long as both of your devices is connected to the internet. Although Ignition cost for $29.99, this is my most used app for my iPhone and iPad since I normally left my PC open at home and I need to access it every now and then in real time. If a $30 app is too expensive for you, perform the first way so you can have it for free at Installous.

Convert your Books to iBooks Reader

iBooks is the Apple’s eBook reader which integrates your books purchased from iTunes and also includes iPad-specific interface. Since iBooks uses ePub format, PDF files cannot be stored to iBooks reader thus you need to convert first your eBooks. Use Calibre, an open-source program that can run through PC, Mac and Linux to convert PDF eBooks into ePub format. After converting to ePub format (making sure that the output is for iPad), drag and drop the file to iTunes for you to sync the iPad the next time you connect it to your PC.
