who writes on an iPad or computer will at times do things by accident.
By this I mean writing something silly or probably the more common one,
deleting things by mistake and then wondering how to get it back. For
this, we use the very well known "Undo" feature which is commonly part
of word processing software. Apple on the other hand when designing the
iPad have decided to make the Undo feature available always, not just
when using a word processor. This is how we Undo on the iPad. There are
in fact two ways. The first is via the keyboard. Simply tap the .?123
key and the key titled "undo" will appear. Touch this to undo. Further,
if you then tap the #+= key, you can "redo". There is however an even
more simple way to do all this. SHAKE YOUR iPad! A prompt will appear
in front of you allowing you to undo whatever it was you just did. Give
it a try now.
second very cool feature I will discuss today is called "Define".
Define is available at anytime you have words in front of you when
using your iPad. Let's try a little example to show how this works.
Open Safari and browse a website with some information on it. Wikipedia
is good or any news website. I know that whenever I read websites like
these, there are often words that I see and I think to myself "I really
don't know what that word means! This where your iPad solves the
problem for you! All you have to do is double tap a word. A box will
appear giving you a few options. The most powerful option here is
Define. Tapping Define will open another box. This one will open up on
a dictionary entry of that word! Great huh? I think so.
in this article, we have covered two really great iPad features. The
first was the shake to Undo command, the second was the Define feature.
I hope you get a lot out of them.
Enjoy your iPad.
