Things You Can Do With Your iPad That You May Not Have Known You Could Do

Updated on December 30, 2012

Things You Can Do With Your ipad That You May Not Have Known You Could Do

There are many cool things your ipad, and some of the things your ipad 2 is capable of doing are things you may not be aware of. This is why you should invest into an Apple ipad manual. As you know Apple does not an ipad help manual, so this is why it is a good idea to get your hands on an ipad user manual. Lets discuss what some of the things you may learn about when you get an ipad instruction manual.

Speed Up Your Typing

There are actually ways you can speed up your typing on the ipad 2. There are a few ways to speed up typing but one of the best ways to speed it up is by simply double tapping the spacebar. Double tapping the spacebar while typing a message will add a period and a space. It may take a little bit of time to get use to doing this but once you do get used to it, you will find that you will be able to type messages much faster than before. This is a very simple trick to use but not many people actually know that they can do this with their ipad.

Show Traffic Conditions

You can also have your ipad show you traffic conditions. This is another reason why you should get your hands on an ipad manual. Many people who are new to the ipad have no idea that they are actually able to do this, and there are also many people who have had their ipad 2 for a while and they still have no idea they are able to check traffic conditions. An ipad user manual will show you exactly how to check traffic conditions right from your ipad. This feature is very useful and can save you a lot of time on traveling.

Play Podcasts At Double Speed

You can play podcasts at double the speed. It is so simple to do this, but there are still a lot of people who are unaware of how to do this. You will want to click the 1X or 2X button when you are listening to an audio podcast. However, keep in mind that this will only work in the iPod app.

These are just three things that you may have not known you could do with an iPad. These things probably seem like common knowledge to any iPad owner, but if you are a new iPad owner, then these are a few things you may not have known you could do with your new iPad.

      By the time I figure out all the stuff my Ipad can do it will be obsolete. Good useful hub, especially the spacebar tip.
