Tips To Help You Use Your IPad More Effectively

In only a few decades, technology sure has advanced! Computers used to fill floors of office buildings, but today they fit in your pocket. iPad technology is racing ahead, too, so read on to find out how to take advantage of it.

Think about buying a keyboard that’s external for use with your iPad. This is beneficial if you type a lot on your iPad. They are usually connected wirelessly and they’re simpler to use versus the iPad’s onscreen keyboard.

There is a choice for how you can view a PDF on the iPad. You can either put your PDF in iTunes and sync your iPad with it, or you can email them to yourself on iPad. Use both methods until you figure out which one you prefer. You may like both methods depending on what your needs are at the time.

Adjust your brightness to save battery life. The iPad will automatically adjust its brightness depending on the room that you are in. This will help preserve the battery, which means you can use your iPad longer without having to plug it in. You can enable this option via the “Brightness and Wallpaper” settings.

Turn down the brightness for extended battery life. This is especially beneficial if you are on the go and are expecting an important email or message. Decrease the brightness by double tapping the Home icon.

Remember, your iPad needs a power source for charging. You can also plug it into your computer through the USB port. The advantage of this is that the iPad can be charged from netbooks or laptops.

Your iPad makes the process of taking screenshots really easy. Simply press the home button at the same time as the sleep button. You will see a flash, and then you will hear a click. When this happens, it will take a snapshot of your screen. The shot will appear in the Photos app where it can be emailed or viewed.

When taking photos, you might hold the iPad on the sides. This way, the shutter button might move, and there could be wobbling as you shoot the photo. To get around this issue, use the orientation lock instead. The shutter button will be easier to access since it will be near your thumb. After you snap your photo, use your editor feature to shift your images or videos.

Differing environments mean variable need for brightness settings, which is exactly why Apple gives you the controls to adjust things. The normally bright screen can be dimmed by tapping the Home button twice and swiping until you see the brightness setting. This lets you adjust your brightness for your surroundings.

If you are wanting to do a fast copy and paste, simply select and hold the text and tap the Select button. Then press copy, go to another application, then press and hold again. This will allow a menu to come up and then paste. If you want to copy a large chunk of text, you’ll need to quad-tap to get the whole block.

Lots of people hate having to see the percentage of their iPad’s battery charge. Fortunately, this information can be hidden from view. Find the “General” settings menu and follow down into the “usage” subcategory for further instruction. In this area of the menus, you can easily turn the icon On or Off instantly. Do the reverse to turn it right back on.

It is so simple to copy text when you are using the iPad; a simple double click of the word does it for you. That said, copying large amounts of text this way can be a pain. If you want to copy the entire paragraph, tap the text four times. This functionality is available for many kinds of text, including paragraphs, URLs and addresses.

You can control notifications. With multiple apps, you are sure to see lots of alerts and whatnot popping up all the time. You can tame these apps using the notifications tab of the settings app. This can help you manage the apps that alert you and turn off those which you do not need alerts from. That will help you be notified by whatever you find most important.

When you get your iPad it is set to only show the first two lines of any given message in the preview mode. You might want to see more than that, though. Head to “settings” and hit “mail.” Next tap on Contacts, then Calendar, and then change the options.

Most tablet users do not enjoy typing on their device, even though they eventually get used to it. It is possible to have your iPad convert what you say into text. Double click the home button and tap the microphone icon. When you finish speaking, press that icon again and the words will show up as text.

Do you get irritated when your iPad asks if you want to join new Wi-Fi networks? You are able to get rid of this if you go into settings. Just go to the tab for Wi-Fi, and there is an option to turn off the prompt. It is the final option on that page.

Are you aware that you are able to add dates from your old Google calendar to your new iPhone calender. To get this set up, click on Settings, Mail, Contacts, and Calendars, in that order. Select the Add Account option, and then select Other. Choose the Add CalDAV option, and then you can input your account information.

You don’t need to click the camera icon on your screen to view your photos. Swipe to your right using a finger, and there is your video or picture. Previous photos can be seen by swiping left.

Decide whether you want the lock key to lock the orientation of your tablet or mute the sound. Earlier version of the iPad didn’t have this feature. If your iPad comes with iOS 4.3 or a newer version, you will have this option. Holding the volume-down button will mute your iPad.

With technology today, there are so many options. When you get a new iPad, there is a lot to learn on using the new, efficient tablet. This article is but a start, so continue to read and learn more.
