The iPad has been presented as the greatest innovation of the last few years. If you’re new to using it, you may feel overwhelmed with trying to figure out its features and everything it has to offer. Read on to maximize the usefulness of the Apple iPad. You’ll be surprised at what this small little gizmo can do.
It’s simple to find out which apps are currently running on your iPad. Just hit the Home button twice and a list will show up on the screen. To switch between apps, just tap the one you want to access. Just swipe your finger down to get rid of the bar.
You can easily see what apps are running on your iPad. Most of the time, an application can remain open while you surf the Internet or attend to other business. If you want to see what else is running on your iPad, just double-click the Home button. You will see them in a bar located at the bottom. After you see what is running, close the bar by swiping downward.
You don’t have to use the film roll icon to look at pictures. Just do a one-finger swipe to see your photo or video. To view past pictures, swipe to the left.
In your inbox, you may want to see more than the first few lines. Open the settings app, then choose “mail” on the left side. Next, tap on the “preview” setting. Select the number of lines you’d like to see. This saves you time by letting you skim your email at an accelerated rate.
If you fear someone might try to look at your device and read your data, it is possible to set a password so that all data will be deleted after a set number of incorrect attempts. This erases everything stored on the iPad if the password is entered incorrectly ten times.
If you iPad is set to default you will be able to see a few sentences of your email before you read it. You might want to see more than that, though. Go to ‘mail’ under ‘settings’. Select Contacts under Mail, then select Calendar to alter the options for additional lines in Preview mail.
If you are a person that needs to have a manual with whatever you buy, you need to download the iPad’s one should you need it. It is the Apple policy to provide minimal paper and give you the choice of downloading a manual or not.
Screenshots are simple to take. Simply press and hold the sleep and home buttons simultaneously. This will then take your screenshot, and it will save with your photos.
To copy and paste quickly on your iPad, tap the text and hold it down while choosing Select. Now, all you have to do is tap on the copy link and then go into another application and hold it down again. This will cause a menu to pop up which will allow you to paste. When you want to copy an entire paragraph, just give it four good taps.
There is a quick way to access your apps that are running. Just double click the “home” button, and you will see them all along the bottom of your current screen. This is a good way to quickly access an app instead of scrolling on your screen to find the apps you need.
Find a forum online to discuss any iPad issues you may be having. There are quite a few sites out there that offer forums for iPads, and they will have people on them that may be able to help you. Give the proper introduction and try to take in as much information as possible.
Most of the time, you will hold your device on the edges when you take photographs. Doing this can cause the camera button to become difficult to reach and can hinder your ability to get the perfect shot. Instead, set the lock to freeze its orientation. This allows the shutter button to easily be reached with your thumb. After you snap the picture, edit the image with the editor and rotate the video or image at a later time.
Getting an iPad security feature is more important than you may think. What if someone steals it? Do you want them to have access to your email, contacts and banking information?
Did you know you could take screenshots with your iPad? Just push both the Home and Sleep button together. You will then hear a click and see a small flash. This means a photo has been taken. If you need to find the screenshot later you just access your Photo gallery and look until you find it.
Do your eyes get tired when you read books on your iPad? You may fix that by turning down the brightness of the screen as you read. This can be done in the Settings app or in the e-book app itself.
Are you interested in connecting the iPad to the TV so you can watch the content on a bigger screen? Purchasing a separate adapter will allow you to do this. A digital AV adapter will do the trick and so will an Apple VGA adapter. Either of them work perfectly.
Make sure to safeguard your children when using the iPad. You can access the Setting menu; hit General and then Restrictions. When you get there, hit your “enable restrictions” button. Now your child is protected from exposure to age inappropriate content. Access to adult content in both websites and videos will be forbidden.
