"I’ve mentioned before that I’m extremely disappointed in Apple’s decision to completely abandon the iPad 1. It was released in April of 2010 and I received one for Christmas that same year. In September of 2012 Apple released iOS 6. But, it was not available for the iPad 1! So, for me, my iPad 1 lasted 21 months!!!!!! So while my six-year old laptop continues to be reliable and runs everything, my iPad has laid mostly dormant for quite awhile.
I’m not one to give up easily and so every once in awhile I’d update the apps and try once again to see if I could make my iPad 1 usable again. However, although many apps still worked okay, they were extremely slow!!!! In addition, whenever I hear of a great new iPad app the first thing I check is which operating systems it supports. Most likely I’m out of luck.
But yesterday I came across a nice article from PC World on How to turn an old phone or tablet into a PC productivity tool. The article had several suggestions but the one that made sense for me was “Turn your tablet into a full-blown command center.”
