Helpful Hints

How to add a bookmark?
In Safari, click on the "+" next to the address bar, you can add a shortcut to either the "desktop" (also known as the home screen) or as a bookmark to the Safari browser.  This can be handy to access websites you frequent often. 

How to save a picture into your Photo App?
When you're browsing around the Internet and find a picture you like, tap and hold the picture and you'll be prompted with a "Save Image" and "Copy" prompt.   By selecting the "Save Image", it will download the image to you iPad in the "Saved Pictures" album in the Photo App. 

Portrait vs. landscape mode!
Often times, certain features of some applications will have a different layout whether you're looking at it in portrait or landscape mode.   I've noticed, while in pages, that some features weren't present in landscape mode (which is easier for me to type on) that were available in the portrait mode.   Key point:  try both ways to see if it's something that is hiding from you! 

How to take a screenshot of the iPad screen!
Taking a screenshot of whats on your iPad can come in very handy when you need to share something with people who don't have access to see your screen.  By holding down the home button (the only button on the front of the iPad) and the power button (top of the iPad), the screen will flash and take a picture of whatever is on your screen.   The iPad will store this in the "Saved Photos" album in the Photos app!

How to delete multiple pictures from the Photo App!
It's a little deceiving to try and delete more than one photo at a time while browsing the Photo App.  What you want to do it is click on the arrow in the top right corner of the photo app (doesn't work in all folders, but it does for the general photos area and saved photos).   Then, click on one of the photos you want to delete and the delete button will be highlighted.  You can now drag around to select as many as you'd like to delete!

How to limit students from accessing certain content on the iPad!
There are some obvious reasons why you might want to limit certain applications (perhaps iTunes) while your students use your iPad.   If you go to Settings - > General - > Restrictions -> Enable Restrictions...  you can dictate what apps can be accessed after you type in a passcode.  While that passcode is setup, those apps won't even display on the screen.   To disable this, simply navigate back to this page and enter the passcode.
