iPad tips and tricks. This article
will be covering some more great features of Safari on your iPad. It
can be frustrating to visit a website and then not remember the site's
address when you want to go back to it! Bookmarking solves this problem
and on the iPad it is very simple. Another great way to keep track of a
site is to save it to your Home Screen! We will cover how to do
both of these things.
Firstly, bookmarking. Whenever you
are browsing websites on Safari, you have the option to bookmark a
site. This is how it is done. Open Safari and enter a website address.
Now tap the symbol at the top of the screen that looks like a box with
an arrow coming out of it. There is an option here to bookmark the
site. Select Add Bookmark. You will now be asked to enter a name for
the bookmark. The website address is written just below. There is also
another option in the open box that says "bookmark". Tapping this will
give you options on where to save your bookmark. You can create folders
here which can be really handy when you are visiting a lot of different
sites as you plan a holiday for example. The option that I find most
handy is the bookmarks bar folder. Save into this folder means that the
bookmark will be visible always when using Safari. To make the
bookmarks bar visible, go to Settings - Safari and then set "Always
show bookmarks bar" to ON. Now go back to Safari and you will see a
bookmarks bar across the top of the screen.
Another great way to save a website
for easy viewing later is to save the website to the Home Screen. What
happens here is that essentially an app is created that will open
Safari on the website that you wanted. Here is how this is done. Open
Safari and visit a website. Now touch the box with the arrow coming out
of it. Select "Add to Home Screen". A small box appears and prompts you
to name the icon that will appear on your Home Screen. If you now
leave Safari, you will see the icon. You can move it anywhere you wish,
just like a regular app. One great thing that you can do here is to
create a folder on your Home Screen and place all the related icons
into one folder.
