5 iPad tips to make things easier

Here are some tips to help make using your iPad a little bit easier.

1. Put your apps in folders: Making folders helps to keep your screen decluttered and helps your find apps easier.  To create a new folder, long press on an app until it starts to wiggle.  Then drag it on top of another app.  If you already have a folder you can drag your wiggling app to an existing folder.  You will also be able to give your folder a name.  Your iPad will try to come up with a good name, but you can click on it to rename it. 

2. Make the text bigger: If you find things a little to small to see you can change the size of the font.  Click on settings, then display & brightness and then Text Size.  Here you will be able to choose what size you want the font to be. 

3. Define a word: If you come across a word that you don't know the meaning of just long press on it and click "Define" when the menu pops up. 

4. Type an accented letter: If are typing words in foreign language you may need to use an accented latter.  To do this, long press on the letter that you want an accent on and a pop up will appear with options for you to choose from. 

5. Talk to type: I find it much easier to talk out long blocks of text instead of typing it.  Click on the microphone icone on your keyboard and start talking.  You can even say things like period and comma when you want to insert those punctuation marks.
