    This is just a dumb Friday thread. We all know how powerful these devices are so what dumb little app do you use that flies in the face of this powerful tablet?

    I regularly use mine as a kitchen timer.

    If I have my travel case put on, the backside makes a good mouse pad I have discovered.

    Sometimes I turn it off and check my reflection for any food stuck in my teeth.

    That was a great! I'm still laughing as I type.
    I use mine as a light when getting up at night to find my way to the bathroom. My room is very dark.And as a bonus I have something to read.

    1: I have a screen cover that creates my iPad as a mirror when it's off. I have been known to check kids and what they are doing behind my back.

    2: Covering my head with it when it's raining.

    3: Failing to use a plate crumbs going everywhere, mum yelling at me. iPad made a good plate cos I couldn't be arsed walking two metres to the kitchen.

    Most sophisticated though was catching my boss and workmate having sex in the office using the camcam app. Neither work there anymore. It was a complete accident. I had no idea it was going on.

    I cant help but laugh while reading this thread. I am guilty of using mine as a mirror. The uses you all posted are way sophisticated than the apps. lol!

    The point of the thread was to be funny and laugh at ourselves but I never dreamt it would have been this funny.
