Five cool uses for your old Android Tablet

It doesn’t take long for your stylish new electronic device to become just another outdated model in the waste pile. Your once-fresh Android tablet might have done its due a long time ago, but there’s no need to discard it. There are many things you can do to repurpose your old Android tablet and make it fresh again. Read on to find five cool uses for your old Android tablet!

Security camera

As long as your Android has a workable battery and screen, you can turn it into a webcam security system. Simply download a security app like Salient Eye (easily found on Google Play) or AtHome Video Streamer, set it up, and place it strategically. It can even be rigged to turn on as it senses movement.

It’s the perfect way to keep an eye on your pets or your valuable home possessions.

Digital camera photo frame

Don’t spend money on a digital picture frame when you can use an old Android tablet. Again you will have to visit Google Play, search for a program similar to Photo Slides, plug the Android into a wall socket, and you have pictures you can scroll through and display on your mantel.

Battery life isn’t a problem because you can keep the tablet always plugged in, and if you want to get really creative then there’s the option of building out a customized frame or holder for your new digital photo frame.

It’s like a constantly updated window into your favourite memories, with no printing costs involved.

Portable reference library

You have probably used your Android for book storage already, so why not turn it into a functional library? Visit Amazon Kindle or Google Play Books and download your choice of reference books and eBooks. Kwix, the offline version of Wikipedia, can provide you with encyclopedia-like entries without having to go online.

Radio or wireless-only device

You can download Pandora or iHeartRadio, and use your Android to play your favourite music without interfering with other open computer programs and without using valuable memory.

Universal remote

It is so easy to lose the remote in the folds of the couch or slots on a magazine rack. By contrast, it’s not so easy to lose an Android tablet. By installing a universal remote app like Peel Smart Remote, AnyMote, or Irdroid, you can use your old Android as a universal remote for televisions and other electronic systems in the office.

So there you have it: 5 intriguing options for giving new life to your old device. Figure out which one best suits you to repurpose your old Android tablet and make it fresh again.
