iPad Powered By Docstoc
					(A)Front Camera. The iPad 2 has two cameras: a
   0.3-megapixel VGA front-facing camera; and a
   0.7-megapixel camera located on the rear of the
   tablet. The front-facing camera is primarily
   designed for FaceTime conversation, but can
   also shoot SD video and 640-by-480-pixel stills.

(B) Touchscreen Display. The iPad doesn’t have a
    tactile keyboard or a bunch of hardware
    buttons. Instead, you use its 9.7-inch LED-
    backlit glossy widescreen glass display to surf
    the Web, compose e-mail messages, navigate
    apps, and change settings. The screen has a
    resolution of 1024 by 768 pixels at 132 pixels per
    inch. It also has an oleophobic coating‚ so it’s
    easy to wipe off fingerprints and smudges.

(C) Home Button. One of only four buttons on the
    device, and the only one on the front of the
    iPad, the Home button primarily acts as an
    escape option, though it can also help you
    manage your apps. When you’re in an app,
    pressing the Home button will return you to
    your Home screen, where all your apps are
    located.If you double-press the Home button,
    you’ll pull up the multitasking shelf, which allows
    you to see recently running apps and access
    device shortcuts. If you’re already on your
    Home screen, pressing the Home button will
    send you to the Spotlight search screen; if you
    have multiple Home screens, pressing it will
    take you back to the first page. When the device
    is off, you can wake it up by pressing the Home
    button once; a double press while the device is
    awake and locked will bring up your iPod
    controls.
(D) Sleep/Wake and On/Off Button. Located on the top
right of the iPad 2 is the Sleep/Wake button. When your
iPad is on, you can press this button once to put it to sleep.
To wake the iPad up, press the button again, and slide
your finger across the lock slider at the bottom of the
touchscreen to unlock it. To turn the iPad off completely,
hold the Sleep/Wake button down for a few seconds, until
the Slide To Power Off slider appears. To turn the iPad
back on, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the
Apple Logo appears.

(E) Back Camera. The second of the iPad 2’s cameras is
located along the back of the device, in the upper left
corner. This 0.7-megapixel camera shoots 720p HD video
and 720-by-960-pixel stills, and can be used for FaceTime
conversation, quick movie-making, or a still shot or two.
The software offers a tap-to-focus feature and a 5x digital
zoom. Sadly, the quality is largely below that of a point-
and-shoot camera or the iPhone 4.

(F) Side Switch. The iPad’s Side Switch‚ located on the
right side of the tablet, near the top‚ can be set to lock the
screen orientation or to act as a mute switch, depending on
your preference. In Settings, tap General, and then tap
Lock Rotation or Mute in the Use Side Switch To section. If
you choose Lock Rotation, toggle the screen-rotation
switch on the side of the iPad to expose the orange dot, and
your iPad will stay in either landscape or portrait view,
regardless of how you’re positioning it. When the rotation
lock is engaged, a small icon showing a lock with an arrow
around it will appear on the right side of your status bar,
near the battery icon. If you select Mute in the settings
screen, the switch will control the iPad’s Silent mode,
which mutes alert noises. Be advised that you can still hear
the audio from music and videos on the device’s speaker
when the iPad is in Silent mode.
(G) Volume Up/Down Buttons. Directly below the Side
Switch are the iPad’s volume buttons. Press the top of the
button (Volume Up) to increase the volume and the bottom
of it (Volume Down) to lower the volume. You can also
quickly mute the iPad by holding down the bottom button
for two seconds. These buttons affect app sounds, as well
as audio and video playback. You can make these buttons
affect your alert and ringer volume as well by enabling
Change With Buttons in Settings -> General -> Sounds ->
Ringer And Alerts.

(H) Built-in Speaker. You’ll find a speaker on the bottom
right edge of the iPad 2 (when facing forward). It will play
anything that makes noise on your iPad, including music,
video, or app sounds. Because the iPad has just one
speaker, it only outputs mono (single-channel) sound. You
can also connect the iPad to third-party speakers via the
headphone jack, Bluetooth, or the dock-connector port.

(I) Dock-Connector Port. To charge and sync your iPad,
you use the device’s 30-pin dock-connector port, on the
bottom center of the device. You can also use this port to
hook up your iPad with third-party accessories, such as
Apple’s Camera Connection Kit. Keep in mind that only
some Macs and AC adapters can charge the iPad; others
cause the iPad to declare that it is not charging, although
your computer shows that the device is connected and able
to sync. When plugged into the included 10-watt USB
power adapter, the iPad can charge while awake or asleep.
On high-powered USB ports—such as the ones on most
recent Macs—the iPad charges but it takes longer,
according to Apple. On Macs and PCs without high-
powered USB ports, the iPad will charge only in Sleep
mode; when it’s awake, it will display a “Not charging”
message in the status bar at the top of the screen.
(J) Micro-SIM Card Tray. Available only on the Wi-Fi + 3G
(GSM) iPad model, the micro-SIM card tray along the back
left edge of the tablet is where your GSM SIM card is
stored. With one of these cards and a cellular data plan,
you can get 3G data service on your iPad. In the United
States, only AT&T offers an iPad service plan and micro-
SIM card, but since the iPad is sold unlocked (not tethered
to a specific wireless carrier), you can pop in any
international carrier’s applicable micro-SIM card while
you’re abroad to receive 3G access. Even if you don’t have
an active 3G plan, you can still connect your iPad to the
Internet over Wi-Fi. To eject a micro-SIM card, insert the
end of a paper clip into the small hole adjacent to the tray
and push.

(K) Headphone Jack. Located at the top left edge of the
iPad is a standard 3.5mm audio jack‚ the same type that’s
found in iPods and iPhones. You can use either wired or
Bluetooth-enabled wireless headphones with the iPad. If
you plug in headphones that have a microphone, the iPad
will recognize it and allow you to use it for apps with
audio-recording capabilities. Otherwise, the iPad will use
its built-in microphone.

(L) Microphone The iPad’s internal microphone is on the
top center edge of the device, right above the front-facing
camera. You can use it to record audio in any app that
supports audio recording. M 3G Antenna (3G iPad only)
For optimal reception, the 3G antenna in your iPad is at the
top of the device, housed under a black plastic shield.
Tap

         As clicking is to a desktop
          computer, so is tapping to an
          iOS device. Tapping is the most
          common and basic gesture on the
          iPad. You tap to open apps,
          bring up controls, make choices
          from menus, and more.
Double-Tap


                Tap an object twice in
                 succession to effect a double-
                 tap. Double-taps are primarily
                 used for zooming in or out on
                 text, but third-party apps also
                 use the double-tap for various
                 purposes.
Tap, Hold, and      For some functions‚ such as
     Drag            highlighting text, copying and
                     pasting, or deleting and moving
                     apps‚ you’ll need to tap and hold
                     down on the screen. When you do
                     this on a piece of text, it will
                     highlight in blue, and editing
                     handles—vertical lines with
                     blue dots—will appear on either
                     side of the highlighted area.
                     You can tap, hold, and, while
                     holding down, drag your finger
                     to increase or decrease the
                     selection. Dragging also comes
                     into play for moving objects in
                     apps, drawing, and swiping and
                     flicking.
                     Drag your finger across the screen‚
Flick and Swipe       up, down, left, or right‚ to swipe.
                      Swiping is one of the primary
                      navigational tools on the iPad: You
                      use a left or right swipe to move
                      through app pages on your Home
                      Screen or images in the Photos
                      app; you use an up or down swipe
                      to read text in Safari. It’s one of the
                      easiest gestures to learn. A flick is
                      just like a swipe, only faster: The
                      iPad supports inertial scrolling,
                      which means that the faster or
                      slower you move your finger, the
                      faster or slower content will move.
                      If you want to get to the bottom of
                      a page quickly, just flick your
                      finger upward in a fast motion.
Pinch
           To zoom in or out, you’ll use
            the pinch gesture (also referred
            to as pinch-to-zoom). To zoom
            in or to open something, place
            your thumb and index finger,
            pinched together, on screen and
            spread them apart. To zoom
            out, do the reverse: start with
            your thumb and index finger
            outwards, and then pinch them
            together.
Rotate


            You can even rotate some
             elements with two or more
             fingers. Just place two fingers
             on the screen and make a
             circular gesture‚ clockwise or
             counterclockwise
   iTunes is an application for organizing and playing
    digital music, video files and podcasts.
   It came out in 2001; it’s produced by Apple; it’s free;
    and it is available for Windows and Macs.
   The iTunes Store is Apple’s online digital media store
    where music, films and podcasts can be downloaded to
    your computer using the iTunes software.
   Although there is normally a charge for downloading
    Breakout music and films, the podcasts are free of
    charge.
   The iTunes Store was created with just music in 2003;
    Legal stuff videos and podcasts were added in 2005.
Where all your favorite stuff is just a click away.
Your iTunes library gives you big, beautiful
views of all your music, movies, or whatever
else you’re looking for. Browse by albums and
let your album art help you quickly spot what
you want to hear. Click an album, and it will
expand in place. You’ll see a track list, In the
Store recommendations, and more, so you can
play a song while you keep right on browsing.
Know exactly what you’re after? Just type a
word in the search field to see all the songs,
albums, artists, movies, TV shows, and books
that contain that word.
With iTunes, it’s easy to get all your music
organized. Any song or album you purchase
from iTunes goes straight into your music
library. And when you import your CDs,
iTunes automatically adds the album, artist,
and song names, along with the album art.
Then, with your whole collection to choose
from, you can create the ultimate playlists for
rocking out, working out, or chilling out. You
can also rate your songs with one to five stars,
so it’s easy to find your favorites later.
Just click to listen to your music, watch a movie or TV
show, play a podcast or audiobook, or take in a lecture
from iTunes U. With iTunes LP, you can also dive into
lyrics and liner notes, watch videos, and more. And
select movies include iTunes Extras like behind-the-
scenes footage, cast and crew interviews, and deleted
scenes.
Not sure what you want to hear? Let shuffle decide.
And when you need to make room on your screen for
more than music, switch to the MiniPlayer. It’s big
enough to let you see the songs that are coming up,
search your entire collection, and change the track
order using Up Next. And small enough that it’s never
in the way.
Genius can search your library to find songs
that go great together, then organize them into
genre-based mixes you’ll love. It can also put
together Genius playlists. Just choose a song
you like and select Start Genius. Genius finds
songs with the same vibe and assembles a new
playlist for you. When you expand an album in
your library, you can also see In the Store
recommendations for songs you don’t own yet
— but should.
Everything you want. And so much you didn’t even know you
                           wanted.
On the iTunes Store, some of our favorite
content takes center stage. Glance at the shelves
to see what’s new and what’s popular. Check
out the latest movie trailers. Give the best-
selling book titles a look. Visit artist pages to
see all their work, photos, concert dates, and
more. There’s no better, or easier, way to cruise
the aisles.
iTunes has lots of ways to help you find
content you’ll love. Top Charts. The free Single
or App of the Week. The handpicked Movie
and TV Show of the Week. New music
recommendations based on your past
purchases. And so much more.
Millions of songs. Thousands of movies to buy
or rent. Your favorite TV shows. Hundreds of
thousands of apps, books, games, and
podcasts. And that’s just for starters.
iCloud

You never know when you’ll suddenly be in the mood to listen to
a favorite song, rewatch a classic movie, or laugh at that hilarious
sitcom episode with a friend. With iCloud, you can have iTunes
automatically download new music purchases to all your devices
the moment you tap Buy. You can also access past music, movie,
and TV show purchases from any of your devices — wirelessly
and without syncing.

And now new music, movies, and TV shows purchased on any
device are instantly accessible in your iTunes library on your Mac
or PC. Just click to play, or even download to take a copy with you
if you’re going somewhere you won’t have Wi-Fi. Whenever you
pause a movie, podcast, or audiobook before the end, iCloud
remembers where you left off. So you can pick up in the same spot
on any of your devices
                      Apps at work.

  The iPad and innovative apps for business are inspiring
 new and better ways to work. Interact with business data,
  visualize results and collaborate like never before. With
                           apps so
immersive and engaging you'll forget you're even working.
iPad is ready for work with built-in apps that
come with iOS, the world’s most advanced
operating system. And with an amazing
selection of business apps from the App Store
to choose from, you can hit the ground running
with the broadest selection of tools to help you
be more productive.
Office2HD
Office2HD has unseated our previous co-winner, Apple Pages, in the
word processing category. Office2HD offers the editing and formatting
you'd expect, including support for multiple columns and images. But it
does more than the rest: It lets you add comments, footnotes, endnotes,
column breaks, and section breaks, plus -- the big deal -- track changes
made within Office2HD.
Although it can't apply paragraph and character styles to text, Office2HD
preserves those already in your documents. Also, you can search but not
replace, nor apply or edit embedded hyperlinks. Office2HD supports a
wide range of cloud services, but not iCloud. And it doesn't support
AirPrint printing .

App: Office2HD

Price: $7.99

Developer: Byte Squared
Compatibility: iPad (iPhone version $5.99)
Quickoffice Pro HD
Quickoffice, now owned by Google, has long been the top cross-platform
mobile office productivity suite. The new version released Oct. 15 adds
tracked changes and notes in the app itself, following on Office2HD's
innovation. (Apple's Pages added tracking but not notes on Dec. 4, but it's
not as Office-like as Quickoffice and Office2HD.)

Quickoffice makes a really good companion to Microsoft Office on your
PC -- and unlike Office2HD, it supports text replace, live spell-checking,
and AirPrint printing.
Quickoffice Pro HD's strong support for cloud storage (though not
iCloud) and its straightforward editing tools make it the closest thing to a
native Microsoft Office for the iPad.

App: Quickoffice Pro HD

Price: $19.99

Developer: Google's Quickoffice
 division
Compatibility: iPad (iPhone version $14.99)
Numbers
Apple's Numbers spreadsheet editor is designed to make data
entry easy, especially around numeric, date, and formula info. The
keyboard adjusts based on the type of data you're working with.
Excel users may dislike Numbers' approach to creating
worksheets; Numbers allows several on a page, which can
confound experienced Excel users.
Also, like all iWork apps, Numbers supports cloud storage
services such as Box and Dropbox, but messily: You must copy
your documents into and out of Numbers, which creates version
issues. Only in an all-Apple workflow does Numbers avoids this
messiness, using iCloud to keep your documents current on all
your devices.

App: Numbers

Price: $9.99

Developer: Apple
Compatibility: iPad and iPhone
Quickoffice HD Pro
Quickoffice's spreadsheet-editing module works
very much like Excel, so it's instantly accessible to
Excel users. There's also a Business App Store
version that allows for content management by IT.
Although it supports several cloud services, it does
not support iCloud.

App: Quickoffice Pro HD

Price: $19.99

Developer: Google's Quickoffice
 division
Compatibility: iPad (iPhone version sold
separately; $14.99)
Keynote
Simply put, Keynote is an amazing slideshow editor. I prefer it
over PowerPoint even on the Mac, and on the iPad, it works
beautifully when creating complex slide transitions and element
effects. And its iCloud compatibility can be a real life-saver,
ensuring all your devices have the current documents. A bonus is
Apple's free Keynote Remote app for the iPhone and iPod Touch
that lets you control a Keynote presentation remotely on your Mac
or iPad.
Keynote's big negative is its awkward requirement of copying
documents to and from cloud storage services, rather than
allowing direct access as other apps do.

App: Keynote

Price: $9.99

Developer: Apple
Compatibility: iPad and iPhone
GoodReader
Many people really wish the iPad had a shared file system,
like a PC or Mac. But it doesn't. GoodReader can give you
much of the file manager you want. It provides a central file
repository for files you transfer via Wi-Fi, various storage
services, iTunes, and the Open In facility used by many iOS
apps (such as Mail). GoodReader -- as its name implies --
also lets you read many file formats, including several not
supported by iOS's naive QuickLook facility. Plus, it unzips
file archives, so you don't need a separate utility for the task.

App: GoodReader

Price: $4.99
Developer: Good.iWare

Compatibility: iPad (iPhone version sold separately; $4.99)
GoodReader
Although GoodReader didn't start life as a PDF annotation
tool, it's evolved into a really good one. You get all the
markup tools you expect from Acrobat Professional -- even
the advanced editing tools -- so no one will know you
marked up the PDFs on an iPad. The app does a good job of
using touch gestures for highlighting portions of your PDF
for markup. My only quibble is you can't rotate individual
pages, so sometimes you're marking up a page rotated 90
degrees from the orientation of the sticky notes' text you're
adding.

App: GoodReader

Price: $4.99
Developer: Good.iWare

Compatibility: iPad (iPhone version sold separately; $4.99)
Notability
Taking notes is a very personal activity, and there are dozens of
apps for the iPad that reflect all those preferences. But two such
apps work well for most people. One is the iPad's built-in Notes
app, which is great for typing in text-only notes and having them
instantly available to your computer and other devices via IMAP,
Exchange, and/or iCloud syncing.
If you want notes that include audio recordings and drawings
(alas, no syncing), also get Notability. It's straightforward to use
and can associate your recordings to what you type as you type; to
hear the portion of a recording made when you typed in specific
text, just tap that text.

App: Notability

Price: $4.99
Developer: Ginger Labs
Compatibility: iPad
Evernote
Evernote is definitely one of the
best note-taking apps out there, so
much so that it’s hard to even
consider it just a note-taking app.
For anyone who bounces back and
forth between an iPad and a
computer, and possibly even other
mobile devices, it’s a wise choice. It
syncs up on its own between all
devices with a monthly paid
subscription. It allows for separate
notebooks, and also includes
tagging and searching between
notes. Along with typed notes, it
can also add audio and photos
through the app, or separate photos
from stored photos on your device.
Another great aspect of Evernote is
they are constantly changing and
updating it.
Cisco webex
Cisco's WebEx for iPad app enables
tablet users to participate in WebEx
meetings on their device, with a
full screen view of the online
conference and the ability to
participate vocally via free VoIP.
Popplet Lite
Popplet Lite brings a distinct
graphical style to the spidergram -
and hopefully makes brainstorming
sessions a lot more pleasant (and
legible) in the process. Plus if your
ideas turn out to be a little
uninspiring they will at least look
great.?
iThesaurus Plus

If words not pictures characterise
your working day, the iThesaurus
Plus app offers to boost your
vocabulary at the tap of the screen,
with more than 140,000 words on
tap and both synonyms and
antonyms.
Original Calculator
Who doesn't need a calculator now and then?
But unlike the iPhone, the iPad doesn't come
with one built in. Fortunately, you can get an
iPad version of that familiar iPhone calculator
for free.
App: Calculator Original

Price: Free

Developer: Spencer Brown

Compatibility: iPad
Dropbox
Apple's iCloud is a great service for
keeping files and other data synced
across iOS and OS X devices, but
it's not (yet) a storage service where
you can keep files in a central
location accessible to all devices
and other users. Dropbox is such a
service, and it's integrated with
many iPad apps, so it can fill in as a
common file system in some cases.
Dropbox also integrates nicely with
OS X and Windows, appearing as
another storage volume. It's
available for Android as well. Note
that using Dropbox with Apple's
iWork apps requires a $5 monthly
fee.
