What’s on your iPad Air?

20 Jan

Back in 2001 Apple introduced the iPod with the slogan “1,000 songs in your pocket”. Since then journalists and bloggers have been asking famous (and not so famous) people “What’s on your iPod?”

From music to videos, people would show their iPod content which would in turn be a non-traditional way of taking an X-Ray or disclosing their personality and tastes.

In 2010, Apple introduced the first iPad and by then the question mutated to “What’s on your iPad?”. Given the tablet’s capabilities for Apps, music, videos, video-conferencing, photos, Internet browsing, e-books, file sharing and more, we could say the same question becomes more powerful and meaningful.

Before you lose your iPad

11 Jan

A few days ago, I got a call from a friend asking for help. She had lost her iPhone and wanted to know if I could help her find it. I asked her if she had iCloud set up on her phone. The answer was no so there was not much I could do at that point. The story has a happy ending anyways. Luckily, she went back to the gym where she had worked out earlier that day and calling her phone while looking around she was able to find it.
I immediately thought: I should write a post and teach my readers how to take preventive measures against a situation like this one!

How to Search on iPad

18 Feb

It is probably one of the least known and used features of iOS on iPad. It is very simple to use, yet very powerful. As time goes by and the amount of Apps, appointments, contacts and information in general increases on the tablet, many people struggle finding what they are looking for.

If you own a Mac, you might be familiar with a search utility called Spotlight. The good news is that Spotlight is also available on your iPad.
Spotlight is great because it searches through your reminders, emails, messages, contacts, Apps, music, calendar (events), notes and the Internet (provided you are connected).

Ever been scrolling through iPad pages trying to find that App you downloaded 2 weeks ago? Not sure when that doctor’s appointment is? Continue Reading
