One of the most exciting aspects with iOS are the possibilities which exist that make our lives easier. I previously said how much I enjoy finding new ways for iOS to make my home life easier. Whether it is cooking or monitoring home temperature, iOS is leading the way in home automation.

One category of items that is becoming increasingly popular is iOS web cameras. One of the companies taking the pain out of monitoring and setting up a wireless camera is Dropcam. Their model of a Cloud Video Recording (CVR) service intrigued me and I have been really happy with it — since having the camera it has made me feel safer and has even caught an attempted break-in on camera!

Every so often I’ll be out at an event, or maybe just watching TV, and I’ll see someone using their iPad either to take video or a still shot.

Yes, the camera on the new iPad is significantly better than it used to be. But, that doesn’t mean it’s actually any use – I still find it frustrating and nigh on pointless to use the iPad to take photographs.

So there you have it, this weeks question presents itself; how often do you take photos with your iPad?

I’m happy to be proved wrong and shown just how many people do use their iPads to regularly take shots, but I’m skeptical about it myself…

For the purpose of keeping this pure, I’d like you to discount using the iPad for FaceTime, I’ll freely admit that the iPad cameras are great for that! Let’s keep this just about photographs, shots that you aim and focus in on. Let me know in the comments how you feel about using the iPad camera in the wild!
