Do you realize that the iPad can give you help in these areas and so many more? There are apps for everything you can possibly imagine, but make sure that you know that your iPad can provide much more than just the apps. The paragraphs that follow offer you some ideas and advice on what iPads can do for you beyond apps.
Buy a good-quality case and screen protector for your iPad. You probably paid a lot of money for your iPad, so you need to ensure that you keep it protected against damage. A good-quality case will protect your iPad from minor accidental falls, while a screen protector will stop the screen from getting scratched.
You can get to all the running apps on your tablet. Double-clicking on the Home key shows all open apps at once. If you tap on a app in the bar, you can quickly switch to it. To make the bar disappear, simply swipe the screen downwards.
If you need to charge up in a hurry, do not use an iPhone charger on the iPad. The iPhone charger supplies half the watts the iPad charger does. It will take much longer to fully charge your iPad if you use the iPhone’s charger. Use the charger that comes with your iPad for best results.
The iPad lets you see 2 lines of an email before viewing it in full. You might want to see more than that. Choose “Mail” in Settings. Choose Contacts>>Calendar, and then select the number of lines you’d like to preview for Mail.
If you enjoy frequently using smiley face or alternate emoticons, have the Emoji keyboard. To get this keyboard, tap settings, then General, and finally, Keyboard. Tap the international keyboards’ icon and look for Emoji. To add it, all you have to do is simply tap it. The next time you see the onscreen keyboard, it will be there.
Do you hate not knowing exactly where hyperlinked words lead? You can easily solve this. You can’t hover over the hyperlinked words to discover the URL, but you can touch and hold on them. This will show you the URL that the word links to.
If you are worried that a four digit passcode is not enough to keep your iPad secure, you can opt for a longer one. You can go into your settings and change it so that you can use as many characters as you would like. This is useful if you know there is a chance someone you know will guess any four digit code you choose.
One of the neat features of the iPad is the Photo Booth. You can get more enjoyment out of this feature if you use it on your friends and family. Tapping the “twirly camera” icon will let you use the camera on the back and take photos by tapping the shutter button.
Password protect your device. This can be a great way to keep prying eyes away from your information and your iPad. Think of a password you can remember, and make sure that it is not the same password as the one you use everywhere else. Write it down so that you can retrieve it if you forget.
Make use of folders. To do this, simply tap and hold onto an app until the app shakes. Once you do this, drag this app over an icon and release. Doing this will create a folder that contains both your apps. The name of your folder will depend on the apps’ category. However, if you don’t like this name, you can change it.
Do you want your iPad to help you avoid traffic jams? You can do this with your Maps app. There is a page icon on the bottom right of the screen. Touch that and select Traffic. This will cause the iPad to download traffic data from the Internet. Now you will see green (normal), yellow (slow) and red (stop-and-go) notations on the map.
