When you go on vacation you have about a hundred different things you need to do. Packing your suitcase takes the longest time in the world. If you get it wrong you might forget something you really wanted to take. I’m sure you have a few of those ‘must pack’ items, but there’s something you should definitely consider taking: an iPad.

Why would you take an iPad on holiday with you? If you really have to ask that question then you don’t know what it’s capable of. If there was one thing you needed to pack, that would definitely be it. Well maybe after your tickets, money and passport. Perhaps even your clothes, but the iPad would definitely be next on the list. Here’s 5 amazing reasons why.

Take Amazing Photos

You will obviously have to print your photos out. They look nice on a computer, but being able to print physical copies is vital. And with some handy apps you can print them out as soon as you get home. You could obviously do that with a digital camera, so how is the iPad different? Because you can edit the photos as soon as you take them, so you don’t have to fiddle around with editing them on the computer when you get home. Just print them out straight away.

Reads Books at the Pool

Everyone that loves to read will take a few books with them on holiday. That takes up room in your suitcase and you can only pack so many. With the iPad you have access to the biggest library in the world and any book can be downloaded instantly. You could read them on a Kindle device, but the iPad screen is much bigger and the reading experience is much more enjoyable. If you love reading books it will change your life.

Connect with Family Back Home

Some people like to forget about everything for a few weeks. They like to disconnect from the world. For others they want to stay in touch with family back home. In the past you would have to find a payphone and call someone from the middle of the street. With the iPad you can use Skype and talk with your mom face-to-face. Even if you’re across the other side of the world you will feel like your mom is right beside you.

Keep Up-to-Date with the News

Every time we go on holiday we spend ages looking for a shop that sells our regular paper. Sometimes it takes you days to find it. If you eventually do, it ends up costing you an arm and a leg. If you added up all the money you spent on papers it could probably pay for a full night out. You can read the news to your hearts content if you have an iPad. Just grab a coffee in the morning and you can spend as long as you want finding out how your football team got on in last night’s big game.

Don’t Forget About Work

Some of us can go away and forget about work. For others it’s not that easy. If you run your own business or have an important job somewhere, it might require you to stay in the loop. Anything can happen in a few short weeks and forgetting about everything could have a detrimental effect on the business. At least with the iPad you can always keep up-to-date with your emails. That’s the very minimum that will let you sleep easy. If you need to do more the iPad will allow you to do it, whether that’s speaking to clients or catching up on paperwork.

    Doesn’t limit to only iPad right? The iPad has inferior camera by the way.
    Some Android tablets actually have much more to offer and a 7 inch form factor is even better for traveling purpose.
