Change the Kindle font and line spacing
If you use the Kindle app instead of iBooks you can make reading books a joy on the iPad mini. Open up the fonts menu at the top right of the Kindle app screen and set the font to Helvetica which is much better than the default font.
You may want to also set the line spacing to the tightest setting on the left which displays the most content on each page no matter how big the font.
The iPad mini has a decent camera but not many will use it since it's too big for comfortable camera use. If you also use an iPhone you may want to buy and install the iPhoto app on your iPad mini.
This app works with iPhoto on the Mac for those who use it and also works great with the Photo Stream on the iPhone. It has a solid photo editor that turns any photo taken into a work of art. Well, it can make them better than they were before.
Turn on the Safari bookmarks bar
The Safari browser is nice to use on the iPad mini. Chances are if you also have an iPhone you have Safari set to display as much as possible on the little display.
The iPad mini display is big enough to make web browsing nice so you may want to turn on the bookmarks bar to display all the time. This gives you easy access to your bookmarks which is useful.
Open up Settings and find Safari and turn on Always Show Bookmarks Bar. The bar doesn't take up much room on the display but puts frequently visited web sites just a tap away.
