Digital Cookbook

You can use your tablet as your digital cookbook where you can keep and store all of your favorite recipes in just one place. There are apps you can use to save online pages, take photos, and scan pictures of recipes in cookbooks saved from magazines, or those you wrote down on cards.

You could organize all of them easily so you can find them right away if you need them. You can then hang the tablet on the wall or place under the counter so that food won’t splatter on it while you cook.

Baby Monitor

If you have an old tablet, you don’t have to buy a new monitoring system for your baby. Pair it with your smartphone and you can easily keep an eye on your little one.

For families that are always on the go, it is all too easy to forget some errands or miss some appointments. Your old tablet can be used as a command center to avoid these issues. Install apps to make things easier and simpler for you.

With the help of these apps, your family can add important events for everyone to know what is coming up. You can use them to set reminders such as throwing the garbage, writing notes to one another, or adding essential items to the grocery list. You can keep your tablet on the wall in one central location so that every family member can see and use it.
