It is a lot of money to purchase an updated Smartphone, an expensive gaming console, a computer, and a tablet. The money just to acquire these pieces alone is well into the thousands, and that does not include any of the accessories or games. Not everyone has this kind of money, but they want to have the benefits of owning all of these devices. Fortunately, the iPad can now replace several of these devices.
The iPad is quite a handy device. It offers a great deal of capabilities, but is conveniently packaged into one simple mobile device. It is smaller than a computer, and much easier to transport, but large enough to offer several more features that are not that convenient on a Smartphone. The iPhone and the iPad have many of the same apps. Some of the apps are slightly more expensive than those for the iPhone, but the capabilities of the apps for the iPad are more complex than those of the iPhone. Most apps for the iPhone range from $0.99 – $15.00 depending on the type of app and the quality of the app. The app may be $6.99 for the iPhone, but will be $9.99 for the iPad. This is especially true with gaming apps. The reason that the iPad is so popular is because it gives you the mobility of the Smartphone, but more capabilities like an iMac.
Game developers have really stepped up when it has come to the development of games for the iPad. There are some styles of gaming that are available only on the iPad, and not available on any other type of gaming device or tablet. The iPad is the first device to release a game utilizing the augmented reality style game play. This is when you are playing a game that will take your environment and integrate it into the game play. You will be able to use walls and furniture around you as obstacles in your game play. It is just another exciting and interesting way that can help you feel like you are truly part of the game. The only current game that is available utilizing the augmented reality is Ball Invasion, and it is only available for the iPad.
Unique games are not the only great games that are available for the iPad. There are also a large amount of 1st person shooter games that have extremely high quality graphics. You will be able to play and enjoy a game just like you would on a console. You will have a lot of the control capabilities without the actual controller. There are apps available for some of your favorite console games such as Call of Duty.
You may be someone that enjoys games, but you prefer more of the old school arcade games. This is also why iPad gaming is perfect for you. Not only will it allow you to enjoy some of your favorite arcade games such as Pac-man, Frogger, The Simpsons Arcade game, Duck Hunt, and many more, but there are also accessories that are available in order to help create an arcade cabinet out of your iPad.
The iPad accessory cabinet known as the iCade offers joystick and button controls just like the old school arcade cabinets. Your iPad just simply slides into the unit to work as the computer and the screen. It is not a large cabinet, but will sit on top of a table or counter. All of the Atari games can be downloaded to your iPad and there is a large variety of other arcade games that are also available for download. All in all the iPad has become an amazing gaming system that can stand-up against some of the most popular gaming consoles.
