An iPad is a great tool to help you with work projects, do research and keep up with your schedule – and a multitude of other tasks that can help you work smarter. Knowing a few ways to save time while using your iPad will make it even more useful.
i) Use Autofill: You can fill in forms automatically by enabling the Autofill feature. In the settings menu choose Safari, Autofill and select “use contact info”. Then your iPad will use the information in your contacts list to fill in information automatically, saving you lots of typing.
ii) Add a Web Page on the Home Screen: You can add an icon for a frequently used website to the main screen for quick access. Simply press the “+” while you are in Safari and then select “add to home screen”. Then you can go directly to that website instead of searching through your Safari bookmarks.
iii) Insert Information Quickly: When you are typing and you make a mistake don’t press backspace, just touch the word containing the mistake and a magnifying glass comes up so that you can easily insert a correction.
iv) Add Apps to the Dock: Instead of having only four apps at the bottom of the home screen you can add two more for instant access. Press any icon and hold your finger there until it wiggles. Then you can drag it to the dock at the bottom of the home screen.
v) Search with Spotlight: Spotlight search will find information on your iPad. Flick to the right on the main Home screen. When Spotlight opens type in a keyword and it will search your iPad. This allows you to easily go to a particular song, contact or calendar event.
