Got An Old iPad lying Around? Turn it Into a Smart Mirror With This App
Until now, using an old tablet for smart mirror projects was for the most part only available for Android. But now, thanks to the work of a programmer, you can use a native iPad app to power a smart mirror.
The app is aptly named “Smart-iPad” and is available at this Github. The creator states that it’s perfect for people who maybe don’t have the full technical skill required to make a full-on smart mirror but maybe have an old iPad lying around.
As of now, the app can display the time, show weather information and UK train information. I expect the creator to add more functions in the future, but for now, that’s it. Unless of course, you are a programmer yourself and can add something to it. According to the Github project’s todo list, he intends on adding functionality to change the city for the weather as well as other improvements like a config file.
If you want to try it out you will have to download Xcode and build the app before loading it onto your iPad.
