How to get The Most Out Of Your iPad

An iPad is an extremely useful piece of technology, but perhaps you haven't yet realized its full potential. We have put together a list of tips to help you understand how to get the most out of your iPad and use it to its full capacity.

Are you tired of having your iPad constantly ask you whether or not you wish to connect with detected WiFi network? You're able to turn off this feature through the settings menu. If you don't want further prompts, turn off the last option found on the page.

Did you unintentionally open an application that makes a lot of noise? You are able to mute volume right away by simply pressing and holding the - volume button until sound is off. If you need to mute often, you can set your lock button to mute, too.

You don't need to click the camera icon on your screen to view your photos. Try swiping your finger to the right to see your video or picture. Swipe toward the left and your previous pictures will appear.

There is an option where you can change the settings to look at more lines of preview text in your email in your Settings menu, click on Mail, and then find the Preview setting. Here, you can alter the preview that you see to 5 lines. This saves you time by letting you skim your email at a faster rate.

To copy and paste quickly on your iPad, tap the text and hold it down while choosing Select. After clicking copy, you can go into another application and place your finger down where you would like the text to go. Now you will have an option for paste.

If you want to share pages with others or another device, sync them in iTunes. It's very easy to interact with iTunes now and share documents. Things become even easier as you are able to email your PDF's across the Internet and download them on a remote system.

Decide whether you want the lock key to lock the orientation of your tablet or mute the sound. Earlier iPads aren't able to do this. If you are using iOS 4.3 or more, you have this option. Holding down your iPad's volume-down button also mutes the device.

You can easily take a screenshot with your iPad. Just depress the HOME button followed by the SLEEP/WAKE button. You will then hear a click and see a small flash. That is how you know the picture was taken. You can view your automatically saved screenshots in your gallery. You can also e mail them from this location.

You may notice that you begin to grow tired after an extended period of reading on the iPad. This can be fixed by lowering the screen's brightness as you read. You can change the level of brightness in Settings, or you can simply do it within the iBooks application with the slider.

Hopefully after you read this you will know more about how to effectively use your iPad. It is an amazing little device that packs a lot of punch with an app for almost anything you could imagine. Don't have one yet? Head over here and find a local retailer.
