IPads have been introduced in the market for one sole purpose. They have been introduced for the purpose of eliminating the use of a laptop on the go and providing users something bigger than just a smart phone. iPads are very unique in nature and allow users to enjoy their work on a larger screen than a smart phone.
The screen is almost as big as a notebook or a mini laptop called a net book. iPads have many features and hidden apps in them which can be used for the benefit of the user. IPads are small and quick in function hence they assist every person who needs assistance in their work while they are in the process of multi-tasking. iPads are also very famous amongst youngsters and kids who love to watch stuff on them and play games on them.
IPads have nearly made laptops useless since many of the functions found in the iPad are not available in a laptop. iPads are the most technologically advanced devices currently available in the market and there are many tips and tricks which majority of the users of ipad still does not know about. Below are some important and useful features which should be adopted by every iPad user, new or old:
Apps on the iPad can be easily grouped together which is a very good feature and not everyone knows about it. The way a person can group apps is by holding the icon of one app and dragging it to another and a group forms automatically. This allows users to separate their management apps from their games and other entertainment apps. This allows users to easily find apps on their iPad pages and do not convert it into a hassle. Grouping allows the iPad to become more manageable and sorted.
Searching for free apps
Not many users may know this but searching for free apps has a trick to it. People should always search online on their Ipads for free apps and then search for them on the app market. This way they tend to get more information about the app and can also see if it is useful or it is what it claims to be. Free apps are a blessing in disguise since app store does not have a lot of useful free apps, however, some people find their way around the best free apps by searching them online.
Closing and shifting apps
Another feature or trick that only a few users know about is how to shift between apps and close an app. The new ipad allows users to shift between apps by pinching the screen which sounds like a very odd thing to do but it works. This feature is available on all the new ipads and allows users to look up other information while their current information is still open. All the user has to do it put his or her fingers on the screen and make a pinching movement which will direct the user back to the home screen. In this way users do not have to lose their work ever again.
Taking a screenshot
One hidden secret abut ipads is that the screen print can be saved in the gallery. This task is very easy and is not common at all amongst iphone and ipad owners. The way a person can save a screenshot is by holding the home screen button and the lock button at once. Once both of these buttons are pressed at the same time for a couple of seconds, the ipad shows that it is taking a picture of the screen. The file automatically saves in the gallery of the ipad.
