Turning Your Tablet or iPad Into A Productivity Hub


While many people purchase iPads and Tablets for social networking, movie watching and game playing, they also can provide a positive impact on your everyday productivity. You just need the right apps and configuration and before you know it, your life can become much more organized.

Many tablets including the Apple iPad come already equiped with many of these basic tools. For example, a calendar, address book, alarm clock and calculator. By having all these applications in one central location can not only save you money but also time.

Furthermore, there are many other applications you may want to consider downloading that have even more enhancements, which can increase your productivity. Here are a few examples:

  • DropBox is a great tool for storing and sharing documents and large files via the cloud. This great tool isn’t just available via a desktop or laptop. There is also an app for it. By having this app makes it very easy to access and view these documents via a tablet quickly and not take up storage space.
  • Skype can quickly turn any tablet into a telephone simply with Wi-Fi. That means not only a much more stable, clear connection but also the ability to talk and video chat without taking up your data.
  • Evernote offers an app that allows you to create a digital notebook for everything. That includes keeping up with your expenses. Within the app users have the ability screenshot the receipt making it very easy to locate in the future. This way invoices and receipts no longer have the potential of getting lost or misplaced.
  • Workflow is a great time management application. With it you are able to bypass tasks that are a waste of time. For example, you can use it to call a cab in advance of your next calendar event or create a button for an activity you may do a on a regular basis such as order Sushi every Wednesday.

In addition to these apps, all tablets whether Android or iOS offer the ability to create folders for the various applications on your device. This is a great feature to utilize as it can help you organize your apps into various groups. For example, games, social networking and work. By not seeing apps that can distract every time you turn on your tablet will help prevent you from getting distracted and potentially wasting time on a game or other app that isn’t productive at the current time.

All in all, productivity is all about how you use various tools at your disposal to make not only your work but also your life easier. A tablet can be that tool to make it all happen. Make sure you protect and accessorize it with a GoPromotional tablet case.
