iPad Resource for Wednesday: Receiving & Making calls on your iPad

Receiving & Making phone calls on your iPad

Easy Peasy!! And very helpful for those times when you hear your iPhone ringing, and your phone is someplace else.   As long as your iPad & iPhone are both running iOS 8, and are on the same Wi-fi connection, making and receiving calls on your iPad is a breeze.

Incoming calls show the caller name, their phone number and their profile picture–assuming there i a profile picture in your contacts.  Just click or swipe on the notification to answer the call.  And the best part is that you can even respond with a quick text message if it is inconvenient to take the call.  

To make a call on your iPad, just tap on a phone number from your contacts list or any phone number displayed in Safari.

To set-up your iPad so that you can make and receive calls go to Settings 

FaceTime and select iPhone Cellular calls to the “on” position.  

You can also choose to receive FaceTime calls. And choose which of your connected phone numbers and email addresses will share your cellular connection between your iPad to your iPhone when on the same Wi-fi connection. In other words, you can be selective.

Bitmoji is your own personal emoji – that you can use right from your keyboard!

• Choose from a growing library of moods, stickers and comic scenes - featuring YOU!
• Use it in iMessage, WhatsApp and more

Just download and sign into the app with Facebook  or email– your unique collection of Bitmoji is already waiting for you!

I have to admit, I have reached that point in life where I absolutely hate pictures of myself, clearly I have not embraced the selfie craze.  I saw this on the Today show this morning and on my, what fun it is.  Ok, admittedly I went a little crazy, but the cool thing is I just made my Avatar and there are tons of options and it just puts your Avatar face or whole body into the scene. So I really only made one.

And there are lots of ways to share, iMessage, Mail, FB Messenger, Facebook, twitter, save to your photos, etc.

This would be a great tool to use with kids in the classroom, they could each make their own avatar and use it on their blogs, in projects, anywhere. 

By the way it is an iPhone app, so if you are looking for it in the APP store on your iPad, look for iPhone Apps! http://goo.gl/zvGypO 

Yes, iPhone apps work on iPad too!!
