Is An IPad Right For You And Your Family?

You love your iPad but perhaps are unaware of all it can really do. You just need proper information to succeed. Keep reading in order to learn more about using an iPad every day.

Make sure your browsing history is clean before you let someone else use your iPad. Private websites that you visited should not be seen by others. Go to the default website if you do not want your device to load your last page.

A power outlet isn’t necessary to restore your tablet to full power. You can charge it with anything that has a USB plug-in. Therefore, you can be as mobile as possible and charge your device from your laptop.

You view two lines by default when you see new emails. You may want to be able to see more content. Head to “settings” and hit “mail.” Then click on Contacts, then click Calendar and then finally select Preview Mail Options so that you can see more at one time.

Change your settings so that you can preview more than two lines of an email in your inbox. Go to your settings, tap on mail and change the preview settings. Change the preview feature to increase the lines you see. This will allow you to see more, which will make it faster for you to skim through your emails.

You can share podcasts with family or friends easily using your iPad. You can share it without even stopping the podcast itself. While listening, just tap once on the Email button. A screen asking for recipient info will appear. Just enter your friend’s email address and the notification will be sent right away.

When using Safari, you can easily jump to the beginning of the page by clicking the top of the title window. Many people scroll, but that is time consuming. Tapping is simple, quick and actually works in a variety of different apps.

Create FaceTime phone contacts, as well as emails. When you set up FaceTime, it will remember the email you use to access iTunes, but additional emails can be added. Go to the settings of your iPad and customize from there.

If you are worried about anyone trying to get into your phone and seeing all of your private information, you can set your password to erase all data after so many failed attempts. By using this setting, all of your information will be erased after 10 failed password attempts.

The iPad has a clipboard for copying and pasting, just like a full-size computer. Tap and hold on the text you want to copy and choose select so you choose the sentence you want to copy. Tap the screen again (the text should be yellow) and hit copy. Then you simply tap and click Paste.

Be sure to set your phone up so that its Find My iPad function is always running. It shows you exactly where you can find your iPad. You will be incredibly grateful to have enabled this feature should your iPad ever become lost or stolen.

Get an iPad screen protector. This is basically just clear plastic that goes over the screen. It will prevent your iPad from getting scratched and having fingerprints all over it. This makes enjoying your iPad easier for many years.

Full stops can be added to documents you type on the iPad. Click the space bar twice after a sentence. Double tapping the button will create a space and full stop. The full stop is a great way to save some time when you’re working with larger documents.

When you want to copy and then paste text, tap it and click Select. Once the text is selected, tap “copy”, and switch to the app you wish to paste to and hold down a tap again. A menu will come up that will let you click on paste. If you want to copy and paste a paragraph, you will need to click the area four times.

If you have trouble getting your side volume buttons to work, head to “settings” and “general” followed by “sounds.” Turn Change with Buttons On if need be. You can slide the volume up and down this way.

Try to sync all of your pages with your iTunes and then you can share it with any operating system. It’s so simple to share to your iPad now. Functions like emailing and downloading PDFs have become very easy.

When surfing, use tabs. In Safari, you can simply tap the link you want until a menu shows up. You can open your links in new tabs when the pop-up menu shows.

There are many preloaded apps that you will probably never use. That said, they can’t be removed, either. For convenience’s sake, move any of these apps out of your iPad’s main work area. You can then focus on getting down to business.

Are you weary with typing? Give your dictation option a try. Dictation can be turned on by pressing the key with a microphone symbol. Speak into the microphone, then press the key again. Click the microphone a second time to translate your words into text.

There are two methods to showing a PDF file. You could either access your PDFs via iTunes and then sync your iPad so you can view your PDFs on your computer, or send the PDFs to yourself via email. You can give both methods a try and choose the one you prefer.

If the iPad you own is used by multiple people, including children, make sure to activate the parental control features it has. Within the general settings categories is the ‘enable restrictions’ option. This will ensure that young eyes are not exposed to content that is adult appropriate. This will keep your child away from inappropriate sites while browsing the web.

Are you knowledgeable in iPad use now? This device is portable, powerful and full of resources. Put the great tricks in this article to use every time you pick up your iPad.
