Updated on March 17, 2012

iPad is one of those gadgets that are considered to be the future of the computer world. It is technologically advanced, portable, lightning fast and have many features to enjoy. So what are the uses for an iPad? There are many uses for an iPad, but they depend upon one’s personal preference and needs. Although, some common, important and best uses for an iPad are listed down for you:

Uses for an iPad:

Following are some of the best uses for an iPad:

1. Keep in touch with the web:

Since iPad is completely portable, you have the access to the internet, whenever you go. With its big screen, it is easy to use the internet and with its completely touch screen, it is faster and cooler to surf the web with your fingers.

2. Reading and Sending Emails:

If you are not anywhere within the reach of your Desktop PC, many times you miss the easy and facility of sending and checking your e-mails. With iPad, you can have your e-mails checked at any times. You do not have to wait for those important e-mails till you get back home.

3. The Perfect Cook Book:

I do not know whether iPad was designed as a recipe book or not, but seriously it serves the purpose well enough for at least being nominated as the ideal recipe book. An iPad is significantly smaller than a laptop – it occupies lesser space then. The iPad also fits perfectly into the cookbook stand. With perfect visibility on its big screen and applications like ‘epicurious’, it further strengthens its nomination for the perfect recipe book.

4. Your Moving Photo Album:

Among many other uses for an iPad, a very amazing use is that an iPad can become a beautiful, stunning and a moving photo album. With its large screen, viewing pictures and videos of your friends, families, weddings and/or hangouts have never been that easier before. You can easily swap between photos and can bring it with you to any place or to your friends.

5. E-Book Reader:

I would rate this use as the best among all the other uses for an iPad. Reading a book at a desktop PC may prove to be a torture in itself. Even reading books on laptop sometimes irritate and some people just do not like reading e-books on laptops. iPad is an extremely convenient, and so far, the best way to read an e-book. Its large screen view and the ability to carry the iPad in your hands, gives you the traditional feeling of holding and reading a book.

6. Connecting with the Social Networking Websites:

If you are a social networking savvy, iPad gives you the utmost facility to enjoy connecting with your social networking websites, anytime and anywhere.

7. Business uses for iPad:

There are many phenomenal business uses for iPad along with many other uses for an iPad. Apple Inc. has introduced, and constantly upgrading the stock of many business applications for iPad. To read different business uses for iPad in detail, read BUSINESS USES FOR IPAD

8. GPS:

The ability of iPad to get connected with Google Maps, provides you with a GPS system. It comes extremely if you do not have an iPhone or any other smartphone to keep you updated and become a hindrance while you get lost in your way.

      Just my $0.02, I have an iPhone, and now am the proud owner of an iPad. I LOVE both!! I was trying to write hubs with my iPhone, hard, but not impossible, easier to use the simpler version with phone. With my phone I couldnt add pictures etc. I've only written 2 Hubs, 1st I wrote from my phone, I just published my 2nd, this time w/iPad. I'm STILL having a hard time with photos, I uploaded several, but only see 2 at a time. I guess it just takes me longer than most!!

      With iPad, I bought a "HotSpot" box...instant continuous wifi with no phone service needed! As long as I have this gadget.. I'm good to go. Since I'm "older" it takes me trial and error to figure it out, books don't do it for me. A big advantage w/'s a reg keyboard, good point for me!

      GREAT Hub!!!

      My ipad is the perfect solution for the small portable computer (as long as you don't need a full blown computer application like quickbooks, quicken and photoshop.

      I don't even subscribe to an additional internet service as it picks up my network or wifi networks so well.

      @Vinaya: Every product from Apple Inc. is too good to pass on. I myself is wondering that it is an amazing little gadget to have (I do not have it yet). But my first target is to have an Apple iPhone and then the iPad :P

      Hi Hunbbel,

      I don't have an iPad and really don't understand how they work. Are they just a mini version of a laptop?

      Does one have to pay extra charges to their ISP if they want to access the internet via their iPad?

      @Randomcreative: I agree with you, on the point that a smartphone often performs almost all the functions when getting updates etc. But I personally believe that these iPads are the future of computer gadgets and technologies and now all the further advancements will be moving forward while making this iPad a precedent.

      These do all sound like good uses for the iPad. Personally, I do well with my Blackberry for quick Internet functions during the day (checking e-mail, weather, etc.). I still need an Internet connection with a keyboard to get real work done...the iPad just can't provide that.
