Trying to mn under bed covers.
Screen kept switching views, so I googled it. Turns out there a side switch which you can either make for silent typing or to stop the views switching but sadly not for both. So stealth mning still a bit tricky.

Bet you are all enthralled with my amazing discovery.

You can turn the typing noise off in the settings > sounds > keyboard clicks > off wink

My amazing iPad discovery came today after owning it for 6 months. Tap the time at the top of the screen and it automatically scrolls to the top of the page- genius!

Splendid thank you!! So as long as I don't suffocate under here I can mn as long as I like whilst dh gets his beauty sleep.

Wow Grannyrat- that's brilliant!
Ohyou I couldn't cope with typing noise so that's disabled anyway.

What's the weather like there? grin

OhYouGreatGreatBritain Thu 02-Aug-12 23:43:51

Oh, yeah, that works!

OhYouGreatGreatBritain Thu 02-Aug-12 23:45:05

Tis humid Gwen wink

That's brilliant granny!!!!

Wonder if there is anything to get to the bottom of the screen?

Did you know that if you "pull" the screen down at the top (where the time, battery and signal bar is) it brings down a screen with the weather, any missed calls, notifications, text messages etc.

Also double tap the button and delete your app history to unclog your phone and make it run faster.

Which button username?

Have you tried sweeping all your fingers over the screen to the left?


tapping the home button twice....

Press the home button and power button simultaneously to take a screen shot, saved in photos.

OhYouGreatGreatBritain it's the round home button.

Four fingers left or right switches between apps.

Four fingers upwards gets the same as a double click on the button (apps dock).

Thanks user smile

That screenshot tip dotty is handy, as is the orientation trick as the side lock button is under my iPad cover

< goes up for air>

OhYouGreatGreatBritain Fri 03-Aug-12 00:11:33

Are all those apps that I can sideswipe actually running at the same time?

VikingVagine Fri 03-Aug-12 00:14:21

Yup, to close them hold you finger over one for a few secs then delete.

EllenJaneisnotmyname Fri 03-Aug-12 00:15:48

I don't have a padlock symbol. sad

VikingVagine Fri 03-Aug-12 00:17:08

It's a padlock or a speaker depending on your settings.

VikingVagine Fri 03-Aug-12 00:17:47

Or example, I see a speaker because my slide switch is set to screen orientation lock.

EllenJaneisnotmyname Fri 03-Aug-12 00:18:00

But the side switch works, yay!

EllenJaneisnotmyname Fri 03-Aug-12 00:18:28

Crossed Viking, but thanks!
