Old iPad what do I do with it?

Recommended Posts

use it as a digital picture frame


Computer's don't make errors. What they do, they do on purpose. By now your name and particulars have been fed into every laptop, desktop, mainframe and supermarket scanner that collectively make up the global information conspiracy, otherwise known as The Beast. 

You just be careful. Computers have already beaten the Communists at chess. Next thing you know, they'll be beating humans.

There are some apps that let you use it as a second monitor. This didn't sound too cool to me at first, until I realized that the app I downloaded allowed for the touch screen input to be usable. Pretty cheap way(assuming you already have an old iPad) to add a touch screen input for your pc.


Don't do drugs. Do hugs!

you use the cable as a monitor output from your PC. the Latency is "pretty good" from the reviews I have watched, but dont expect it to be on par with a dedicated monitor. Would be great for having stuff like skype, or a stream while playing a game on your primary monitor.

It should work on ios 7 as well.

 

Edit: I'm realizing now that the 1st gen ipad probably can't run ios 7 either... Maybe look up other streaming software that goes over wifi, and see if it works on the version of ios your ipad is running.
