Tips On How To Greatly Use Your Ipad

Working with an iPad can seem overwhelming, especially when there are too many functions to choose from. Don’t feel overwhelmed; just build on your knowledge of how to use the device! The following article will provide some simple tips to help you get your feet wet in using this wonderful device.

If you haven’t ever had a tablet before, you may be overwhelmed. The iPad is incredibly user friendly and almost impossible to screw up. Just start playing with it and see how much you can figure out alone. Even the most computer inept should be able to handle an iPad.

Do you need some help with organizing your busy schedule? Install a Google calendar on your iPad. Tap on the mail section of your settings and select calendars. Choose add a calendar, select Google as your server and enter your Google account information. Your Google calendar will then be exported to your iPad calendar.

If your iPad turn by turn directions are too soft or loud, change them in settings. Some people may need a little extra volume for these directions, while others like them softer. No matter your need, you can make adjustments right in your iPad settings. You can even turn off the voice if you don’t want it.

You can listen to music on you iPad, and you can listen to podcasts, too. You can find radio programs in varying lengths on just about any topic. If you crave something a little more stimulating during your morning commute, try a podcast. You are sure to find any number of topics that interest you.

If you are preparing to sync your iPad with your computer for the first time, choose wisely. If you indicate that you want to sync ALL of your pictures, videos and music, be prepared. Depending on how much you have, it could take a long time to fully transfer everything over. Instead, use your discretion and only sync those items which you know you will need on the iPad.

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.

You can show the web your strongest emotions by simply turning your caps lock on with new iOS devices, such as the iPad. Rather than fighting the shift key over and over again, you can now double tap the button and enter caps-lock mode. This setting is great for typing an entire sentence or paragraph in a capital font.

Wait until accessories are on sale until you buy. Your iPad comes with what you need up front – the iPad and a charging cable – and everything else can wait. If you want a standing charger, case, keyboard, screen protection or any such item, they go on sale frequently online, so keep your eyes peeled and be patient.

The iPad is a wonderfully portable device, but always be sure to store it correctly. Keep your iPad away from excessive heat or prolonged exposure to direct sunlight. Heat and sunlight can seriously diminish your battery life, and thereby decrease the amount of time you can use your iPad before you have to plug it in.

As you have just read, when you know how to use your iPad, you won’t feel as overwhelmed. There are many things your iPad knows how to do, but you may not know how the function works. This makes it imperative that you apply all you’ve learned from this article for optimal results!
