iPad Tutorial – Learn all about using your iPad (Original Version)

[music] Hi, this is Don McAllister, and welcome to another training video from screencastsonline In this video, I’ll show you how to get the most out of your iPad by explaining and demonstrating all of its features from scratch No previous iPad, Mac, or PC experience is assumed as I’ll take you through the basics And by the end of the video, you’ll be an iPad expert The video covers the iPad 2 and iOS5, but most if not all of the software features covered are available on the original iPad once upgraded to iOS5 The video is organized into chapters and sub chapters, so if at any time you want to jump a chapter, just tap on the navigation controls on the control panel or tap on the chapter pop up button to see the list of available chapters Now because there is no screen cursor or pointer on the iPad, it can be quite difficult to follow the onscreen actions So what I’ve done is to animate my taps. So whenever I tap the screen, in most cases you’ll see a small yellow dot That should hopefully draw your attention to the area of the screen where I tap And also I’ll explain exactly what I’m tapping and where the location of the button is Also, I’ve included some small red arrows that will again assist you in identifying the areas of the screen that I’m talking about [music] Let’s start with a quick overview of some of the physical iPad controls, and then I’ll show you the basics of using the iPad Most of the physical iPad controls are positioned around the edge of the iPad with just a single home button on the face, or bezel, of the iPad down at the bottom And on the top bezel is the forward facing camera On the top left corner of the iPad is the earphone or headphone jack It’s a standard three and a half mm audio jack suitable for most headphones You may need to press your headphone jack in quite firmly, especially on a new iPad. If you have an iPad with 3G connectivity, yours will have a black panel across the top of the iPad as well as a small slot at the top left hand side for the 3G sim card At the top right is the power button Just press the button once to put the iPad to sleep or to wake it up To completely power down the iPad, press and hold the power button for a few seconds until a slider appears and then slide the slider You don’t need to power down the iPad very often As it’s got a great battery life and will last up to 10 hours On the top right hand side are two switches At the very top, the slide switch, and just below that a rocker switch By default the slide switch is set to mute the sound So if I just slide it down, you’ll see we get the symbol showing that the device has been muted Let me put it back up again This particular switch can also be configured to lock the display on the iPad in either portrait mode or landscape, but we’ll look at how to set that up later on Below the slide switch we have the volume control which is a rocker control We can either press the top to increase the sound or press the bottom to decrease the sound To mute all the sound, press and hold the bottom end of the rocker and you’ll see it’s muted completely Let’s press the top half and that will increase the sound again Now at the bottom right is a speaker grill that contains the built in speaker Now you’ll find that this is ok, but if you have a smart cover, when the smart cover is wrapped around the back of the iPad, it just boosts the speaker volume And then finally at the bottom is the standard 30 pin connector that allows you to connect your iPad to your computer and other peripherals So now that we’ve had a look at the physical make up of the iPad, let’s have a look at managing your home screen [music] When you first install your iPad, you’ll be presented with the home screen But by default you just have a single page of applications But over time you’ll collect many apps by installing them from the app store And they can spread over several pages But let’s start with the very top of the screen We have a translucent black bar that stretches right across the top of the screen Now on the left hand side, currently it says iPad If I had a 3G iPad with connection to the 3G network, you probably would see the carrier name there And you’ll also see the number of bars indicating the strength of the 3G signal I’m currently on wifi, so I just see iPad and then the wifi signal showing that I’ve connected to a wifi signal In the middle is the time and then on the right hand side we have a battery percentage And the battery is currently at 67 percent charged. Now you might see additional icons if you switch on things like bluetooth But as it stands, this is just the basic status bar at the top of the iPad We have the icons and then down at the bottom we have the dock And currently there are four icons in the dock

There’s Safari, which is the mobile browser, there’s a mail icon, the photos application, and music The dock is really a place to keep your most used icons because when you do have multiple pages, the dock will appear on every page Just above the dock there’s two tiny icons One is a magnifying glass, indicating the search page And just a single dot, which indicates the single page of icons To get to the search page, that’s over to the left So if I swipe the icons across to the right, you see we move across to the page on the left To get back to my home page, I just swipe with a single finger to the left and it takes me back to my home icons If I try and swipe further, so if I swipe to the left, you’ll see that the icons just bounce back There isn’t a second page, so I can’t sweep along Now when we do add a new page of icons in or a new page, we’ll see a second dot appear just above the dock Ok, let’s show you how to reorder the icons on your home screen Now we have to go into what’s called a jiggle mode The way you do that is just tap and hold on any icon So I’m tapping on the FaceTime icon And let go and you’ll see the icons have started to move Now while they’re in this state, which I call jiggle mode, you can rearrange them So if I wanted to move the FaceTime icon to another row, I can just drag with my finger and let go If I wanted to move the itunes icon, again, just grab and hold with my finger or tap and hold, rather, and just move it to where you want to place it You can move icons to the dock We’ve currently got four icons in the dock, but you can have up to six What I would recommend is if you move the settings icon, because we use this quite a lot down to the dock, let go, and there it is in place for us If I wanted to move my mail icon across to the left, I just pick up the mail icon with a single finger, drag and drop Let’s say I wanted to move my game center icon Tap and hold, drag across to the right, and you’ll see those icons zoom out of the way, let go Right, and there’s my first icon on this next page Swipe across and back to the home page Now as well as reorganizing the icons by placing them on different pages or changing the order, you can also create folders Very simple. All we do is to drag one icon on top of another So for instance, if I wanted to create a folder of Apple applications, I’ve got my app store, I’ve got my itunes applications here If I tap on itunes, you’ll see we get the icon highlighted. Drag it across to the app store And then let go. Right, that is now a new folder It’s called lifestyle. But what I will do is I’ll tap into the title, hit the backspace key, and then just type Apple And say Done And to come out of the folder, just tap on the desktop We’re still in jiggle mode as I call it To come out of jiggle mode, just press the home button and the icon remains static So now if I tap on the Apple folder, you’ll see we get direct access to those icons And I can create folders from any group of applications. I can even move folders through to the docks So tap and hold my Apple folder, drag it down to the dock, and let go Press the home button and that’s them all rearranged To remove icons from folders and also to remove folders is very simple All you need to do, well, let’s delete this Apple folder If I just tap and hold it in the dock, you go into jiggle mode, drag it out of the dock, and tap it once And that exposes the content of the folder Let’s remove the itunes icon from the folder So again, tap and hold, drag it out and let go So we just have the one icon in the folder. Tap it once again to open the folder To delete the folder, if we just drag the last remaining icon, drop it on the desktop, and the folder disappears Tap the home button, and that’s it, gone We’ll look at this jiggle mode again later when we look at deleting applications These default applications we can’t delete, we can only move them around on the home screen But once I install some additional applications, I’ll show you how you can delete them from your iPad Ok, so let’s take a look now at personalizing your iPad [music] Now the first thing that people tend to want to do with the iPad is to personalize your wallpaper So to do that you need to go into settings Don’t forget I’ve dragged my settings icon down to the dock, so I can just tap on settings And the option you want is brightness and wallpaper All the various settings are down the side in the sidebar And when you tap one of these settings, normally the panel to the right changes to reflect the option that you’ve chosen So if you go on brightness and wallpaper, here we have a brightness control at the top And we have wallpaper So if I just tap on the main wallpaper section, now this gives you a selection of built in wallpapers You can use your own photos once you’ve got photos onto the iPad, but

we’ll just use the standard wallpapers as supplied Let’s choose the earth. So I’ll tap on the earth Now two options. We have the lock screen Now that’s the screen when the iPad is locked And we have also the home screen So you can either set either or both So if I want to have separate wallpaper for my lock screen, I just tap set lock screen If I want this just to be on my home screen, just tap set home screen In fact, let’s use this one as the lock screen Ok, and let’s choose another one for home screen So if I tap on the landscape, let’s say set home screen. Ok, that’s Done To come out I just click on the home button And there’s my home screen wallpaper Now to come out if I just hit the power button once, and then hit it again Right, there’s my lock screen with the earth Slide to go back in and there’s my separate wallpaper for my home screen Now let’s reset that back as it was. So again into settings It’s remembered I had brightness and wallpaper set, so if I just tap into the main panel And let’s set it back to this sort of rain effect, or water effect And I use this for both the lock screen and the home screen So tap set both. Ok And again, tap the home screen, takes us back out to as we were before Now one other option that sometimes drives people to distraction are the sounds By default you have keyboard clicks So when you type on a keyboard it clicks back to you And you can take those off if you want So back into settings, this time into general And then within general we have an option for sounds And then at the bottom keyboard clicks And we’ll take that off So I just tap the small slide switch at the bottom, and that switches it to off There are lock sounds as well for when you lock your Machine I tend to prefer leaving those on And then there are all these other different tones for ring tone, text tone, when a new mail arrives, when you send mail And you can change these to your heart’s content really You can configure all the sounds to your own personal preferences One important consideration with your iPad is security This isn’t too bad if you’re at home But again, if you do have young children around it might be useful to set a lock on your iPad But more importantly, if you’re out and about, you really do need to set what’s called pass code so that anybody can’t just pick up your iPad and get access to your email, etc To set your pass code lock And there are two things you need to consider, but let’s have a look We’ll go back to general We’ll tap the general button at the top There are two things to consider First is the auto lock Setting Auto lock is when the iPad will lock itself automatically Now by default it’s set for two minutes. So after two minutes of inactivity, the iPad will lock itself And then if you have the pass code lock on, you’ll need to enter a pass code to get in So this doesn’t interrupt our demonstration, I’m going to set the auto lock to slightly longer, say 10 minutes We’ll go back to general and then we’ll go into pass code lock Ok, currently it’s off, so I need to turn it on So tap on turn pass code on And then we set a pass code A simple pass code which are four numerics, or there’s complex pass code if you want to make it a bit more complex and harder to crack So I’m just going to go ahead with one, two, three, four And reenter one, two, three, four Ok. And that is my pass code As well as the auto lock, there’s also the option to require a pass code either immediately or after a minute, after five minutes, after 50 minutes So if you set your auto lock to a short duration, say to conserve battery life, and you don’t really want your pass codes to appear each time it auto locks, you can change the timeout for the password to be a lot longer So say every four hours while you’re at home So if it does auto lock, you’re not consistently always having to enter the pass code But I’ll leave it set to immediately for now We’ll come back out. Let’s test it So if I again just lightly press the power key once and then again So there’s our lock screen Slide to unlock. And now I need to enter my pass code One, two, three, four Now we’re in. Let’s go back into pass code lock I have to enter the pass code to change my settings One, two, three, four Now I can switch on a complex password So if I tap where it says simple pass code and switch that off, enter my old pass code One, two, three, four And enter a new password We have the full keyboard now So I can enter any combination of upper case characters and numeric as well I’m just going to go ahead though and call this password, which you never ever use, of course Ok, and then I’ll hit return. And reenter Now press Done on the dialogue box. Ok

So now if I test this by powering down and powering up using the power button slide, right, we now get the full keyboard to enter our complex password Ok, so that’s entered. Type return. We’re back in Just one other thing about pass code lock We go back into the section, again enter my password or pass code to get back in I’ll tap return on the keyboard this time There’s the option to switch on a picture frame And again, we can’t really see that until we have some photos on our iPad Picture frame is like a digital photo book, so that when you have your iPad off and it’s in its lock screen, you can configure it so that it will display some of the photos that are contained on the iPad Finally, for pass code lock, see at the bottom erase data currently set to off. If you set that on, if someone accesses your iPad and then tries to bypass the pass code 10 times, it will erase the data on your Machine But what I’m going to do now, I’m going to switch the pass code off while I’m demonstrating So we’ll turn pass code off Just need to enter it one more time. It will say Done Ok, and that’s now off. Back into general In fact, I’ll change my auto lock to never so that it doesn’t interrupt us while we’re demonstrating So that’s setting a pass code on your iPad [music] You’ve already seen me use the home button to navigate around the iPad And the home button being the single physical button on the front of the iPad on the lower bezel But it’s worth investing some time in learning different ways to use the home button, and also to use a thing called multi-touch gestures And I’ll explain what they are shortly But let’s just focus in on the home button now because there are several different ways you can use a home button So this is the home page If I wanted to get to the search page, I could just swipe to the right or just do a single tap on the home button And that takes me straight to my search page If I do another single tap, the home button takes me back to my home page If I go to the next page of icons, remember, I moved the game center over here And if I tap the home button once, it takes me back to my home page So just to recap, from the home page a single tap will take me to the search page From any other page but the home page, single tap will take you back to the home page Ok, let’s run an application Let me run the youtube application. I just tap on youtube To return to the home page from any application, again, a single tap of the home button takes me back One thing to note that although I’ve come out of the youtube application, I haven’t closed it down It’s still running in the background Let me run a second application, let’s say the notes application Ok, that’s notes So if I want to get back to the home screen, just a single tap on the home button takes me back there So now I have two applications running in the background I have my youtube application and my notes application How do I get back to them? Well, I could just tap on the icons from the home screen, but there are some better ways, some quicker ways to get to them The first off is to use the multitasking bar That’s a bar that’s hidden at the moment But the way you can bring it up into view, well, there are two ways One way is to double tap on the home button. So if I just tap twice, one, two, you’ll see from the bottom of the screen the whole page of icons that rise up and then there are my two running applications If I wanted to run my youtube application, I just tap on youtube and that brings it to the forefront Let me go back to the home page again with just a single tap of the home button Again, it’s still running in the background Another way to get to our multitasking bar to access the running applications is to use multi-touch gestures These are similar to the gestures that you can use on the track pad on a Mac if you’re running lion But the first one I’ll show you is the four finger swipe up So if I just place four fingers on my home page or on any page of icons really and then just push up You’ll see that the multitasking bar appears down at the bottom If you’re on an iPad 1, you’ll need to go into the settings application to switch multitasking gestures on In fact, let me do that for you I’ll use a four finger swipe down to come out of the multitasking bar. Let’s go into settings And then if I just scroll up with a single finger, there we go Multitasking gestures. It’s switched on by default on iPad 2 and above, but on the original iPad you do need to switch that on And this only works with iOS5. Let’s come out of the settings application

Again, I could just press the home key Another way to do it is, again, another multi -touch gesture And that’s a pinch gesture. If I use all five fingers, place them on the screen, and then pinch inwards, you’ll see we go back to the home screen So four finger push up reveals the multitasking bar. You’ll see the settings application is now running in the multitasking bar as well While we’re here let me just show you another multi-touch gesture Let me open the youtube application So I’ll just tap on the youtube icon To switch between applications when you’re in an application, you can use a four finger swipe So if I do a four finger swipe to the left, there’s my settings application that’s running. Let’s do another swipe There we go, there’s my notes application If you imagine these as full screen applications sort of in a row all running side by side, I’m at the far right of the row of applications If I try and scroll to the right by doing a four finger gesture to the left, you’ll see nothing happens There are no further applications running And if I go the other way, a four finger swipe to the right, there’s my settings application And this is an application in its own right, so it’s running separately in the multitasking bar Another swipe to the right with four fingers takes me to the youtube application And then a further swipe to the right, no further applications running To get back to the home screen, I can either press the home button or I can use the pinch gesture So with all five fingers placed on the screen, pinch inwards and that takes us back to the home screen So just to recap, a four finger swipe up takes us to the multitasking bar Four finger swipe down closes the multitasking bar If you go into an application, you just go into youtube, a four finger swipe to the left or right will show you the next application That’s me just going through the three running applications And then a five finger pinch gesture inwards takes you back to the home screen As we saw in the previous section, if I do a four finger swipe up, we’ve got three applications running in our multitasking bar Four finger swipe down to hide it There are no limits to the number of applications that will run in the background. In fact, most of them don’t run There’s sort of like in a frozen state So you can use the multitasking bar to access frequently used applications And it’s really good if you have lots and lots of pages of icons So what I will do now is I’ll just start loading up on pretty much all the applications I have in store So if I load calendar, the home button to go back to the home page Hit reminders. Again, home button to go back to the home page Let’s go into maps. Again, home button Let’s run the contacts application, back to the home button News stand. Actually, news stand is something separate We’ll look at news stand later. Let’s run itunes Back to the home page using the home button And the app store. Back to the home page And what else? Let’s say Safari. And back to the home page Ok, so I basically started all those applications up And if I now look at the multitasking bar, four finger swipe up, you’ll see them all running in the background or all in a frozen state in the background You can’t see them all because some of them are off to the right So if I do a single finger swipe across the multitasking bar from the right to the left, you’ll see there’s the other applications So it’s a neat way of accessing your recently run applications The iPad itself will manage the state of all these applications So unlike a sort of normal computer, you don’t really need to go into delete them from the multitasking bar to stop them from running The only exception to this in my experience, not so much on the iPad but on the iPhone are apps that use gps or navigation These do tend to use up the battery So I do find it’s useful to delete them from the multitasking bar and stop them running manually once you’ve finished using the application To manually close an app, say I wanted to close down the maps application All I do is tap and hold And there we go into jiggle mode and we get the little minus button in the top left hand of each icon If I just tap that minus button on the maps icon, it deletes it from the multitasking bar So that’s the way to clear up your multitasking bar, but after several days usage you’ll find you have lots and lots of applications in there Don’t really need to worry about them too much All your most recently accessed applications will be towards the left hand side of your multitasking bar. But to come out of the jiggle mode, why just tap away. Takes us back to the home screen Four finger swipe up and there we are And I can just scroll left and right to access my running or frozen applications There are instances of course where you don’t want an application to be frozen You want it to carry on working in the background, such as the music player If you’ve loaded a music track you want it to carry on playing even if it’s in background mode

iOS can do that, and your iPad can do that Let’s demonstrate by loading the music application So four finger swipe down There’s my music application in the dock Single tap will load it. I’ve got the volume turned down There’s a volume slide And we’ll look at the music application separately later. But there’s a volume slider Now let me bring it up slightly so you can hear the music across the microphone Select this jeff smith. And the first track [music] ok, so that’s sort of playing in the background I’ll turn the volume down so it doesn’t interfere with the microphone And now if I double tap on the home button, we’ll see it takes us to our multitasking bar The music application itself doesn’t appear because it’s still to the forefront. I’ve not put it in background mode So four finger swipe down. Let’s go to another application I’ll do a pinch gesture to go back to the home screen And if I turn up the sound using the rocker switch [music] ok, so the music is still playing So we can now go into Safari, say, browse the web and still have the music on in the background Let me just go back into the multitasking bar There’s our music application There’s a set of hidden controls which some people miss completely And those hidden controls are available by swiping right on the multitasking bar And that gives us some media playback controls Now you’ll see that the music icon in the corner indicates that it’s the music application that’s playing. I’ve got the track label I Wanna Dance down at the bottom. I’ve got a set of playback controls I can pause and stop. I’ve also got a volume control So again, I can alter the volume from here [music] And we’ll turn it down again. I can pause I can play. Ok, so I can control from here There’s also a brightness control. So I can alter the brightness Now because of the way I’m recording this screen cast, you can’t see the brightness on screen But that’s the brightness control The other button next to the button playback controls is AirPlay But we’ll look at that separately And the other button on here is on the far left hand side If you watch where it says, I Wanna Dance, when I tap this button, see, it says landscape orientation locked So this is the lock to lock your iPad into either portrait or landscape mode If I rotate the device, it will stay locked in landscape. Tap it again to release it To be honest, it’s a useful feature but it’s a bit hidden away in this particular menu And it’s a bit awkward to get to that So what I prefer to do is to have the orientation lock on the side switch The physical switch on the side just above the volume control To do that, what you have to do is you have to go into settings to change that So let me go into settings. So four finger down, that takes me back to Safari. I can do a pinch to take me back to the home screen Go into settings And you’ll see down at the bottom of the general section is use side switch to either lock rotation or to mute By default, it’s set to mute. I’m going to select lock rotation Ok, so now if we go back into the multitasking bar So four finger swipe up, scroll across to the right And you’ll see that the icon has now changed to a mute icon So if I physically change the side switch, you’ll see we get the orientation lock, on and off And then if I select this button here, it mutes the volume I found that to be a much better arrangement So if you do make this change, it’s sometimes worth checking this icon Sometimes you forget that it’s there and you might find that your Machine doesn’t have any volume Just go into the multitasking bar, swipe to the right, and just check that the icon isn’t set to mute like that. I’ll switch it off [music] Of course one of the major benefits of using an iPad is the availability of thousands of different applications, all available in the app store So let’s go ahead and show you how to install and delete applications that you install from the app store So if I just tap on the app store icon The first time I enter the app store, I’m prompted to download a free copy of ibooks This is the ebook reader that Apple supplied for the iPad And I’m going to go ahead and say yes So we’ll tap on download. Right, now it’s prompting me for my Apple ID password This is the Apple ID that I set up for iCloud You can use this Apple ID, but I already have an Apple ID that I’ve used on other Mac devices And I’ve already bought a whole load of applications So I don’t really want to buy them again by using a different Apple ID, so I’m going to go in and log in using my existing Apple ID so I can

get access to all the different applications that I’ve already purchased If I do want to use the Apple ID I set up for iCloud, if I was to enter my password and tap ok, I will be invited to enter my credit card details again. But as I say, I don’t really want to use my iCloud Apple ID, I want to use my existing Apple ID That I’ve already purchased apps on another device So I’m going to say cancel to that And to log in as a different user, I’m going to scroll down to the bottom See, I’m currently logged in as Apple ID scotutor3@me.com I’m going to tap that I’m going to say sign out and say sign in And I’m going to use an existing Apple ID Ok, so now I can put in my old existing Apple ID and my old password So let me just enter those Right, and that’s me now logged in, able to purchase and install applications And also download applications I’ve previously purchased Let’s go ahead and download an ibook application If I go into search, I’ll tap at the top, ibook Right, there’s my player. For the iPad, it’s free So I’m going to tap on free and then install app Ok. I then get a prompt to enter edit the home screen, we’ll say dismiss And there’s my ibooks installing It’s installing on the second page of icons that I’ve set, but that’s fine Well, that’s installed. And let’s go back to the app store So, four finger swipe up, tap on app store, and let’s go back to the feature page by tapping on the icon at the bottom Let’s take a quick look around the app store There’s a few things to point out Across the top you have some tabs, so the new tab is the one by default This is all the new applications that are currently available They are sorted into various categories as well, but we’ll look at those There’s a what’s hot, the latest hot applications And also you can have a look at buy release dates as well But let’s go back to new. Top panel These are only special offers They’re normally groups of applications put together So party planner, if I tap on that, takes me to a page all connected with party planning But let’s go back to the app store. New and noteworthy Let me just scroll down slightly. So you can see the six applications in new and noteworthy There are also four dots underneath that. This is a scrollable panel I can scroll through and have a look at the four different separate panels just by scrolling left or right using a single finger If we look at this gangster rio city of saints, you’ll see it’s currently on sale for ₤4.99 and there’s a little plus in the label That plus indicates that it’s available for both iPhone and iPad So you purchase it once and then the application you can also download to your iPhone as well or your iPad And they optimized for both, it’s what’s called the universal application You can run iPhone applications on your iPad but they sort of get blown up twice the size, so it’s not really that great an experience So if you can find applications that are optimized for both iPad and iPhone, they’re normally the best ones to go for And you will find that there are some applications that are just iPad only They’re normally represented by, well, not having the plus in the little label So there’s priced applications, there are also free applications So you’ll see the one next to it, paper pot notes is free If I scroll to the next panel, you’ll see here, yeah, here we go Wall of sound. This is an application I’ve purchased before, or it might be a free application that I’ve downloaded before Well, you’ll see it says install So because I’m logged on with an existing Apple ID that I have used to purchase this application before, it’s allowing me just to reinstall it without showing me the price, whether it’s free or not I can just install that application The next panel down, normally again featured types of applications or specific applications And then there’s an option for staff favorites Just scroll down a bit further again. This is a scrollable panel again Oops. Let’s move that back up. This is a scrollable panel, so I can just use my single finger just to swipe through There’s another really good application, FlipBoard That’s a free application Let me just install FlipBoard because that is a super application and I would recommend that you get this. It’s sort of like a news reader And what it does it allows you to read all sorts of content from all sorts of different sources in a really nice application So let me go ahead and install FlipBoard Ok, so that’s FlipBoard installing Let’s go back to the app store while it does So these are staff favorites. You can see all if you want Tap once to see all. You can see all the staff favorites Or back again to the app store and then down right at the bottom we’ve got links to previous apps of the week, previous games, free apps, game centers at school and iwork Also three buttons, your Apple ID we you can sign

in or sign out using a specific Apple ID. The option to redeem So if you have a coupon code or a gift certificate, you can go in and redeem from that button And then an option to access the Apple support site But scroll back up to the top And also down across the bottom we have featured, which we’re currently on. We have the option to switch on what’s called the genius So if we turn on genius, what it will do is it will go ahead – there’s some terms and conditions we have to agree to. So again, I suggest you read that Although there are 38 pages. Let me go ahead and agree Now what it will do is it will go ahead and it will work out based on what you’ve already purchased, it will give you some recommendations for additional applications that you might be interested in So you’ll see here, based on spot remote which is a spotify remote application that I’ve purchased There’s another spotify remote application called remoteless I’ve downloaded the 360 panorama application, which is a camera application for my iPhone It’s recommending this dip tick, which is another type of camera phone But have a play with genius, it’s quite a good idea And it’s a good way of finding new applications Let’s go to top charts, tap down at the bottom So top paid iPad applications and top free iPad applications Again, these are scrollable panels, so you can scroll up and downwards Various categories, so if you want to search for a specific category you can choose a category from this particular screen So photo and video. Takes us straight to photo and video You can have a look at your purchased applications So again, because I’m using an existing Apple ID, these are all the applications that I’ve already purchased And if I want to download them, all I need to do is to tap on the individual cloud icon next to each application and that will download that direct to my iPad. If you want more information about an application, so for instance this Jimi Hendrix If I just tap on Jimi Hendrix, that will open up to a full page which gives me more information about the application. And this is the same for all applications Each application has a specific page to give you more information So a side bar with an install button, some details about the category, who the developer is, etc Buttons to go to the developer website and to app support And then on the main page, you’ve got options to, again, visit the developer page, to tell a friend There’s also some information which you can access by tapping the them and it will give you more information And there’s some screen shots And these screen shots you can just scroll through to have a look at what it looks like It’s also possible to rate and read customer reviews from these pages also Let’s go back to my purchase tab and the last tab across the bottom is updates So if there are any updates to your applications that you’ve installed, you can tap on the updates button and that will give you a list of all the applications And the ability to either update individual apps or update them all So that’s the app store. Let’s come out What I will show you now that we have installed these applications, just for purposes of demonstration, I’ll delete the FlipBoard application I would suggest that you go back in and redownload it if you do But just to show you how to delete an application, tap and hold And you’ll see that these installed applications from the app store have these little black xs next to them Whereas the game center, which is a default application installed with the iPad, doesn’t So what we can do is just tap on the x, delete FlipBoard and all its contents, all its data We’ll say delete, and that’s gone. Tap on the home button and those xs disappear So very, very easy to install applications from the app store And if you don’t like them, it’s very, very easy to delete them from your iPad Before we move away from applications, there is one additional third party application you might want to install That’s because now iOS5 has full integration with twitter So if either you’re an existing twitter user or you’d like to start using twitter, iOS has been developed to integrate fully with twitter so that you can do such things as tweet messages You can tweet photos directly from the photo application Quite a bit of integration. But to set up the integration with twitter, what we need to do is go into settings So from the dock I’ll just tap on the settings icon And you’ll see down in the sidebar we have twitter So if I tap on twitter, we can install the application from here We can add our existing username and password, or we can create a new account. Let me go ahead and create a new account Let’s give it my full name. In fact, let’s call myself sco tutor So that’s going to be sco tutor Email, I’ll use my cloud email id Scotutor3@me.com User name, scotutor3. And password. Retype the password Find me by email So people can search for my email address. I’ll leave that as on Tweet location. I’ll leave that off for now

You can imbed geo-information So that because your iPad has got gps capabilities it knows where you are. You can imbed your location within your tweet I’m going to leave that off for now. And I’m going to say sign up Ok, would we like to install the free twitter app? We’ll say install. And that’s twitter now installed If you’re a big facebook user, you can also install facebook That’s another third party application To do that, what you need to do is go to the app store Still in the updates panel I go to featured, tap on the search panel Click on the x to clear the search panel And just type facebook. Tap on facebook. And there we go They have a specific iPad app now so I just tap install Ok. And that’s facebook installing When you want to access facebook when you tap that icon, you’ll be prompted for your log in, your user details, etc But that’s how you install twitter and facebook on your iPad Now this is just a very quick tip that can save you lots of time, especially after a while when you literally can install hundreds of applications on your iPad We’ve seen how to reorganize the icons on the home screen We’ve also seen how to create folders But no matter how organized you are, you do end up forgetting where you’ve installed applications, on which page they are Now in this case it’s quite easy because there’s just two pages and I can see all my icons But after six months or so, you’ll probably end up with three or four, if not more, pages full of icons And it’s sometimes difficult to track down the icon that you want So a quick tip is, say I couldn’t find my facebook icon It was somewhere else on another screen To search for it, just go to the search page Again, I could swipe, but I could be five or six pages across to the right of my search page, which is to the left of my home page So all I need to do is press the home button once, that takes me to my home page Press the home button again and it takes me to search And then just start typing. So facebook, facebook I can see that I’ve got facebook. I’ve also got FaceTime But if I want facebook, I can just tap the entry and that will take me straight there You’ll notice you can also use this search facility to search the web So if I backspace over facebook and this time if I search for, say, ScreenCastsOnline, there’s nothing on my iPad to do with ScreenCastsOnline But I can finish my search of the web or search wikipedia Let’s go ahead and search the web Now we’ll load up mobile safarI and immediately do a search for ScreenCastsOnline. Tap the entry and then you’re in Now to get back to the search page, tap the home button once It takes you back to the home page Tap the home button again, it takes you to the search panel You can find lots of things on your iPad using the search page I just tapped clear the search entry Let’s say I wanted to search my music, search for Thomas Dolby, Dolby There’s all my music Music video and options to search the web or wikipedia Now to configure what appears within your search results and in what order, as usual, we go into settings And then under general, there’s an option to do a spotlight search, so we’ll tap on there So there are all the categories that will appear in my search, and also we can re-order them by grabbing on one of the handles at the side of each category and rearranging it in a list So search is a really useful feature on the iPad For more information about installing applications on your iPad or on your Mac or on your iPhone, indeed, go across to screencastsonline.com, and check out the membership details In the new year, I’ll be doing a whole load of new screencasts all about iPad and iPhone apps specifically So go ahead and check out screencastsonline.com and find out about becoming a member to access the weekly tutorials iOS5 now comes with a robust notification service so that you don’t miss any alerts from your applications Now these notifications are highly configurable, so you can easily control exactly how you want them to appear and when Now there’s a new facility in the iPad called the “Notification Center.” so to see notifications, while we’re on the home screen, if I just swipe down from the top, you’ll see we get this panel pop up And currently there are no new notifications Now we can configure them to appear within this notification center We can configure them to appear at the top of the screen or even in the lock screen But let’s start off by — I’ll send some notifications to my iPad I’ll use that twitter account I’ll send myself a message from twitter to the scotutor3 twitter account Now the first thing we need to do is run twitter for the first time, so let me just run the twitter application Twitter would like access to twitter accounts We’ll say, “ok.” and twitter would like to send you push notifications

I’m going to say “ok” in this instance. Normally I like to control them, so normally I say “don’t allow” and then configure them manually, but I’ll just say “ok” to accept the defaults So there we go — scotutor3 — you’re now on twitter Follow your friends You can tap that and what it will do is will go through and check your contacts list to see if there are any people that have already given you their twitter handle But we haven’t set up our contacts yet, so at the moment it’s just giving us what looks like to be a whole load of celebrities So I won’t follow any of those. We’ll just say “next.” right, I can update my profile photo So I can take a photo using the built-in camera of the iPad or choose an existing photo Again, I’m not going to bother doing that. I’ll just say “finish.” twitter would like to use your current location I’ll say “don’t allow” in this instance I’m not following anyone in twitter yet. In fact, let’s follow my own account Let’s search for a name. Search for Don McAllister We’ll tap on “@donmcallister.” ok, and there I am So, let me follow myself. Tap on “follow.” we’re following. Ok, let’s tap on “screencastsonline” as well Ok, and let’s say “cancel” and “skip” and there we go So there are the tweets that I’ve sent recently, and as chance would have it, there’s my 30,000th tweet up at the top Ok, so what I’m going to do now is going to come out of twitter What I’ve Done is to go across to twitter on another Machine — this time on my Mac I’ve followed scotutor3 on my other twitter account, so when I send the direct message from twitter on the other Machine, it should appear on this iPad as a notification So, I can reach the other Machine from here, so let’s say “send.” virtually instantaneously, we get this message. I can tap on that That takes me directly to the message. Let’s come back out Let’s tap once to come out to the home screen Swipe down. Right, no new notifications Let me send another message, and this time I’ll let the banner disappear and we’ll have update in the notifications panel Ok, so I’ll just send another direct message across to scotutor3 Message from Don McAllister This dm should appear in the notifications panel Now I won’t touch that, now. And it disappears automatically Now there’s a badge indicator on the twitter icon showing me that there is one message If I swipe down from the top … There we go There is my twitter message from Don McAllister This dm should appear in the notifications panel If I tap that — take me straight into twitter as well, and there’s my new message. Ok, back to the home screen Swipe down, and no new notifications Now there’s tons and tons of applications that will support this notification system To configure it, what you need to do is go into settings So, let me just go back into settings Ok, we’re still on our twitter configuration page If I go to notifications, which you should see in the side panel There we are — notifications Ok, so, swipe down from the top of the screen to view the notification center rather than panel You can sort the applications manually or by time Let’s select “by time,” so we’ll have them sorted when the alerts come in And these are all the different applications currently configured for the notification center So FaceTime, messages, reminders, calendar, game center, and twitter So let’s have a look at the twitter configuration So, any notifications from twitter, any alerts, will go into the notification center. Show the five most recent items You can change that if you want more The alert style — so, currently it’s set to banner So we saw that rotating banner — that’s the central one We can switch those off if we want We just want them to appear in the notification center, we can switch the alert style to non Or if we want the alerts to be presented to us full screen with a dialogue to say “ok” or “cancel,” we can select this option here I’m going to leave it as banners The option to have the badge app icon — that’s the little “1” that appeared before when we had one message Sounds — take on or off. And then view in locked screen So we can still view the notification center even when the iPad is locked, and I’ve got that on Ok, let’s just go back and that’s the same configuration for all these different applications And you can see how they are configured by the title So, just underneath the title, FaceTime is configured for badges and alerts, messages for badges and banners, etc Now you’ll notice that mail isn’t in notification center If you get lots of mail, perhaps you don’t want them to appear in the notification center itself To show you the notifications with multiple entries, I’ve stopped the recording and just sent another tweet message and also sent what’s called an “imessage.” and we’ll look at imessage later But you can see on my home page, I have a single badge icon on the messages application showing that there’s a message there If I scroll across to my other page, there’s my twitter message as

well, but if I scroll down from the top, you’ll see there is my twitter message, and then there is also my imessage that I sent from my iPhone Now to clear these messages, you just tap on the “x,” and then say “clear.” and again, for twitter, tap on the “x,” and say “clear.” and then just swipe up to close the notification panel So that’s notifications on iOS5 and the iPad In this section, we’re going to take a look at creating text and using the keyboard. Now the tricks I’m going to show you — , I’m going to show you in the notes application In fact, let me open the notes application Everything I show you to do with text and the keyboard — really is system wide. It’s not just this one application So the tricks and tips you learn in this section you can apply across all your different applications — wherever you need to enter any text So this is the notes applications Now by default it’s opened a new note for me, so I’m just going to start typing So, first thing to do is I’m going to just tap into the note itself, and that brings up the keyboard Let me just type a line in. Ok, this is a new note You’ll notice in the sidebar that we have the current note highlighted with the red swirl around it, and it’s taken the first line of the note to act as the note title Ok, what I’m going to do now is just tap two spaces A couple of things to notice First off, I tapped two spaces, but it’s put a full stop and a space And also you’ll notice that the shift key on the keyboard, which is the one just on the left and the right hand side, just one row up, has turned to, like, a blue outline That just indicates that when I next start typing, it will capitalize the next sentence for me So, that’s two things that are switched on by default One is the insertion of a period and a space when you tap two spaces And the second one is auto-capitalization So this is another sentence Two spaces, and that’s the period and a space between Now you’ll notice that sentence is underlined in red That’s a spelling mistake So let me just tap and hold on the — type select And then you’ll see we can cut, we can copy, or we can suggest Let me just suggest for now “sentence” — so it should be t-e-n, rather than t-a-n So we’ll tap “sentence.” right, and that’s replaced it for us You probably noticed as I was typing as well that there were some auto-suggestions coming up as I typed Let’s have a look at that in a bit more detail Now what I want to do now is to position my cursor at the end of the line So, to do that, all I need to do is just tap and hold, and we get this loop And that can move the insertion point anywhere on that sentence So if I put it there — ok, that’s fine Rather than select, select or select all, I’m just going to hit return And that gives me a new line and another return Let’s type something else So this is “auto” — no, it’s come up with a suggestion of “auto-complete.” if I want that, I can just tap space, and that will pop it in for me But if I wanted “auto-completion,” — let me just backspace, using the key at the top — it’s put back what I typed, so I’m just going to hit that, so now I can just finish off saying “auto -completion.” now it’s saying “auto-complete” on I don’t want that, so I just tap on the “x” and get rid of it Two taps and there’s my period and a space To delete text, I just hit the backspace key I can just do it once at a time, or I can tap and hold down, and then it will take off characters and then it will take out entire words and sentences Now copy and paste is really easy. I’ve just typed some extra text in Let’s say I wanted to move things around So, if I wanted to — let’s say — well, that third line This should really be the second line I want to move that, so all I need to do is tap and hold I can tap anywhere on that line and let go And I get the option to select or select all If I do a select all, you’ll see it selects the entire body of text I didn’t really want to do that, so again, if I tap and hold, and just type “select,” now I get these two markers What I can do is I can grab this end one, move it to the end of the sentence Grab the second one, and then, just with my finger, drag it to the beginning I can either copy it or I can cut Let’s say I want to cut, because I want to move it Tap just below the first line. Let’s put another return in And then tap again, and say “paste.” and that moves the text that I’ve just cut after the selection You don’t have to do it for full lines

You can do it for partial lines. You can do it for individual words Just move those markers around to select the text that you want, and then you can use the cut or copy command to make a copy or to cut it from the text itself. Tap once more, and then paste Just another tip about typing If I go down to the bottom here, if I wanted to type all uppercase, if I tap twice on the shift key, we get this fully highlighted blue shift key, and now this should be all in caps Tap again, and it’s out of caps. Do another return As far as the keyboard is concerned, there’s some special tricks you can do with the keyboard First being the support for international characters These characters that have these diacritic markings above them For instance, in “exposé” or in “café,” it should really be a special “e.” it should have this little diacritic character or marking above the “e.” so if I type “exposé,” right, it’s either going to auto-correct it for us, and I can just hit space, and that will pop it in Or, if I wanted to make my selection, I just backspace over the “e,” and then on the keyboard, if I tap and hold the “e,” we get this little pop up panel of the different characters, and I can just slide my finger across, decide which one I want — let’s say that one — let go, and that’s put in position for me Ok, “café,” c-a-f — again, instead of typing the “e,” I’ll tap and hold the “e,” and again, I can just slide my finger to the “e” that I want Ok, another thing — currency So, if I go to my currency keys — if I tap on the big key on the bottom left hand side of the keyboard, you can see I have a pound sign This is a british keyboard, so if I wanted to put dollars — I mean, I can just type pounds, but if I now wanted to type dollars, again, just put some spaces in, tap and hold the pound sign, and there are lots of different currency symbols I can use The dollar sign is already highlighted, so all I need to do is let go of the key, and the dollar sign is put in A similar thing for quotes If I type and hold the quotes key, different types of smart quotes And you’ll find by experimentation, lots of keys have these multiple functions If you want to get to symbols, you just press this hash plus an equals key on the right hand side, and there are some additional symbols there as well Ok, let’s have a look at the keyboard itself, because you can do some special things with the keyboard You can undock and split the keyboard — which is great if you want to move the keyboard around the screen or if you want to type with your thumbs, you can split the keyboard as well To undock the keyboard or to split it, you just tap on the keyboard symbol down in the bottom right hand corner Tap and hold, and then move your finger to undock Now the keyboard is free We can grab the keyboard symbol and move it above and below Tap and hold again, say dock, put it back in the same position To split the keyboard, tap and hold, select split We now get this mini keyboard that we can now easily access with our thumbs To put it back as it was tap and hold the keyboard key, dock and merge, and there we go Here’s another great tip which will speed up your typing and that’s the ability to create abbreviations If I go back to the abc keyboard, let’s just put a couple of returns in, if I just type in omw you’ll see it’s popping up with a suggestion of ‘on my way’. Hit return and that’s pasted in Omw is a default abbreviation that’s included with the iPad but you can set your own up The way we do that is to go to the settings application We’re already in general If I scroll down, here we go, keyboard. This is the auto capitalization that we looked at, the auto correction, the check spelling is on, the enable caps lock is on, and also our dot space shortcut is on The option to split the keyboard You can also include international keyboard if you want but here are the shortcuts Omw is on my way. Let’s add a new shortcut. Let’s see My business name is ScreenCastsOnline I like to capitalize ScreenCastsOnline It’s going to be capital s, capital c, and capital o and the shortcut let’s just have ‘sco’ and save Let’s do that for my website as well. Add a new shortcut www.screencastsonline.com and my shortcut will be ‘sco web’ We’ll save. The only limitation is you can’t use multiple lines They have to be single lines or phrases but those are my two abbreviations

To test that out let me go back to notes. Fore finger swipe up Tap on notes. Let’s tap into the document One return. If I just type sco, ScreenCastsOnline, return Pops it in for me. If I want my website address sco web, www.screencastsonline.com, hit return and that’s pasted in for me [music] Throughout the tutorial I’ll be making reference to iCloud and I’m presuming that if you’re watching this video already on an iPad you will have been through the setup routine and included in the new setup routine for iOS5 is an option to create a free iCloud account An iCloud account is a free service from Apple that allows you to do a number of things It gives you some free storage in the cloud, so on Apple’s servers, it gives you a free email address, and it also gives you the ability to backup your iOS device wirelessly into the cloud so you don’t need to back it up to a PC or a Mac. It’s a really neat service You can buy additional storage if you want but the standard free account will probably be fine for most people and it gives you additional benefits as well For instance, if you have multiple iOS devices, say an iPad and an iPhone or an ipod touch, you can synchronize various things across seamlessly, such things as your browser bookmarks, your contacts, and even send application settings will be transferred automatically It’s especially good if you have a Mac in that you can have an iCloud account and synchronize all this information between your iOS devices and your Mac Plus there’s a new thing called photo stream which we’ll look at in the photo section which allows you to seamlessly upload your photos into iCloud and then they will then be pushed down into all your devices that have your iCloud account on. I’m presuming, as I say, if you set this up from scratch you probably already have an iCloud account If you haven’t I would recommend that you get one and this section is showing you how to set up a free iCloud account on your iPad Let’s go into settings. Under settings there is an iCloud option. If you already have an iCloud id, an Apple ID that’s linked to your iCloud account, say, for instance, you’re already a Mac user and have an iCloud account you can just enter your Apple ID into here and enter your password as well and then sign in If you haven’t I suggest you get a free Apple ID Let’s just tap on ‘get a free Apple ID’ and select ‘our location’ I’m in the uk so I’ll scroll down to the bottom, select united kingdom, enter my birthday I’m going to say next. Use an existing email address or get a free @me.com email address I’m going to go ahead and get a free address In the email section if I just tap into there we now need to enter our new Apple ID I’ve already been using an scotutor3@me.com address for the tutorial so I’m going to go ahead and create an additional one Scotutor4@me.com but in other modules you’ll see the address as scotutor3 Let’s put in my name and then I need to enter a password It needs to be at least eight characters, include a number, an upper case letter, and a lower case letter. Let’s put the keyboard out of the way We need to enter a security question. If I tap on there let’s say favorite teacher and for my answer let’s say mr. Jones and next All right. There are terms and conditions. There are 18 pages You can get it to send it to you by email if you want by tapping on the link I’ll just say agree, having read all 18 pages I agree to the terms of service and that will then create the account for us Allow iCloud to use the location of your iPad I’m going to say ok This enables this great feature called find my iPad which enables you to see the location of your ipad on a map which is great for if you lose it, if you misplace it, or if it gets stolen You might still be able to retrieve it by looking at the ‘find my iPad’ feature. Let’s say ok. Now I have mail setup, I have contacts, calendars, reminders, bookmarks, notes Photo stream is currently switched off but we’ll switch that one when we look at the photo application Documents and data enables me to synchronize documents on my iPad into the cloud so for any particular applications such as iwork on iOS that are configured for that I can do that and also find my iPad Storage and backup If I just go into storage and backup I have five gigabytes of free storage of which five gigabytes is available I have not used any storage uppers yet I also have the option to do an iCloud backup, currently sent to off This feature allows you to backup your camera, your accounts,

documents, and settings when your iPad is physically plugged in, locked, and connected to wifi I’m going to go ahead and switch that on and then tap ok to say start iCloud backup. Ok. That’s it Although it will backup automatically when you plug your iPad to recharge it you can manually override the automatic backup just by tapping up on ‘backup now’ We’ll leave that for now but that’s iCloud configured so now you can benefit from all the free services that Apple offer to do with synchronization Again, if you’re a Lion user or a Mac user in general you can find out more information about using iCloud over at screencastsonline com or you can find additional apps in the Mac and also the itunes app store [music] Now, with the iPad and iOS5 you can use it completely independently from your PC or Mac but if you do have a Mac or a PC you might want to synchronize your media or data that’s contained on your Mac using itunes That’s possible just simply by connecting the iPad to itunes either via a usb cable, so physically connect it to your Mac or PC, or you can synchronize using wifi This section I’m going to take you through how to setup your iPad to synchronize with your PC or Mac but if you don’t have a PC or Mac you might want to skip this section Let’s go across to the Mac and I’ll connect this iPad to the Mac using a usb cable Cross over to the Mac, this is my Macbook air, and it’s running in the current version of itunes It’s also running it lion as well I’ve reduced the screen resolution to make it fit on the iPad screen but all I need to do now is connect the iPad to the Mac using a usb cable The iPad is recognized and this is the first time I have connected it to my Mac so it’s going to give it a name I’m just going to call it iPad2 rather than ScreenCastsOnline’s iPad. iPad2 It’s set to automatically sync my songs to my iPad To automatically add photos is unchecked so it won’t add photos and to automatically sync applications to my iPad I’m going to go ahead and accept the defaults and say Done Now the music contained within my itunes library on my Mac will sync across to the iPad. Now this is a relatively small library This is just my test Machine. We’re nearly finished now copying across That’s the music completed and that’s the synchronization completed Across the top we see a number of tabs. We’ll look at all of these individually but we’re currently on the summary tab On the top section we have the iPad itself, its name, its capacity, the version of the software it’s running, and it’s serial number It’s also picked up the fact that it’s a white iPad and that image will change dependent on it being white or black There is the version so it’s currently up to date You can click check for update to find out whether or not there’s any new software or we can restore If we’re having problems with our iPad we can restore it back to its original settings You can do this without itunes with iOS5 but let’s carry on We’ve got backup, backup to iCloud That’s the option we selected during the setup process If you want to you can back it up to this computer by selecting this radio button and then every time you connect your iPad to your itunes it will back it up to this computer The option to encrypt your iPad backup as well, if you select that You can password protect it so that any settings, such as passwords contained on the iPad, will also be backed up as well You’ll see here it was last backed up to the iCloud today earlier on this morning when I set it up Some options. To open itunes when the iPad is connected You’d normally want to leave that set To sync with this iPad over wifi. If we wanted to we could disconnect the iPad and synchronize our music, our movies, our applications, etc wirelessly over the local wifI network Let’s come back to that and check these other options. To sync only checked songs and videos If I go up to music, you’ll notice that within music, if I go to the list view you’ll see we have these check boxes If you want to selectively enable or disable whether or not a song is synchronized you can check or uncheck these boxes and that’s all controlled, again, if we go back to the iPad and scroll down to the bottom this is to sync only checked songs and videos Prefer standard definition videos, so if you don’t want hd videos to be transferred across you can select that option Convert higher bit rate songs to 128 kilobits per second aac If you have some songs that have been encoded in a high bit rate normally that makes the song files themselves much larger You can select this option here and it will convert them to smaller files so you can get more music onto your iOS device

Then the option to manually manage music and videos. Rather than automatically synchronize you have to manually manage that Configure universal access. Let’s just click on that This is to enable some of the accessibility controls Voice over, zoom, use white on black display, speak autotext, and also for hearing use mono, audio, or show closed captions when available I’ll leave them as default. Let’s go back to sync with this iPad over wifi If I select that and then say apply. Ok. My iPad is still connected via usb but if I disconnect it from my computer normally when you disconnect an iOS device it will disappear from the sidebar but here we can see it’s still connected on our sidebar No cable connected. If I go back up to the top and say sync it will look for the iPad2 and then it will sync wirelessly There were no changes so nothing’s been applied As well as wirelessly updating the software or restoring software via iCloud from your iPad you can, if you want, go back to connecting the iPad to your Mac or PC and then use the usb cable to update or restore its software. I’m going to leave it now as using wifI for synchronization Before looking at the various tabs across the top of the page I just point out to you this capacity gauge down here at the bottom You can see this is a 16 gigabyte iPad. It currently has 0.32 gigabytes of audio installed, .07 gigabytes of video, just under half a gigabyte of other that is usually applications and application related data, and it’s got 13 gigabytes of free space. Let’s have a look at the top We’ve got summary we’ve had a look at. We’ll look at info These are normally deselected and this is because we’re using iCloud to synchronize all this information to our iPad so these are all deselected If you don’t use iCloud you can sync your Address Book, your ical calendars, and mail accounts across using wifI or a usb connection Applications, these show the various applications installed on your iPad You can use this as well to rearrange your home screen and create folders We’ll have a look at that on the iPad itself. But this is set up by default to synchronize apps between your iPad and your Mac Tones, these are alerts so you can set up system alerts to use various tones We’re currently syncing all the tones across from the Mac Music, we’re synching our music library We’ve currently got it set to sync the entire music library Again, this is a relatively small music library, so it will all fit on the iPad If you find that you have got a large music library and you want to be selective about what music you copy across, you can choose selective playlists, artists, albums and genres So, for instance, if I select here, if I just want to synchronize tomas dolby with my iPad, I just select the artist thomas dolby. I say apply Again, it will look wirelessly for the iPad and it will delete the music for jeff smith off the iPad You’ll notice the audio has now dropped down to 24 gigabytes Let me switch on entire music library. Apply It will now synchronize with the iPad and we’ve now got .3 gigabytes of audio on there. And there we go You can see at the top its now synching the music I just deleted across If you want more information about using itunes, check out some of the tutorials over at screencastsonline.com where I take a look at setting up playlists and how best to use playlists with your iPad Ok, so that’s music. Let’s have a look at movies Currently, I only have a single movie installed on this Mac What I’m going to do, I’m going to synchronize that across, automatically include all movies and then we’ll say apply And again, this will now transfer this movie across to my iPad And you’ll notice that the free space on the iPad has reduced down to 11.8 gigabytes and the video has now gone up to 1.4 gigabytes So that video is quite large, will take a little while to copy across This particular video was bought and downloaded from the itunes music store and we’ll have a look at that later We’ll can leave that to synch in the background Let’s have a look at tv shows. Again, just a single episode And again, I’m going to say synch tv shows. And again, apply And that will sync it once the movie is finished Other options, podcasts, so if you subscribe to any podcasts within the itunes store, you can synch them across to your iPad as well Books, we’ll look at books separately If you have any purchased books, you can synch them across to your iPad and also photos Now currently I haven’t got iphoto or aperture installed on this particular Mac Iphoto is a application you get with a package called ilife It’s supplied with all new Macs and, basically, it’s a way to both manage and organize your photos, and once you do manage and organize your photos on your Mac, you can synch them across to the iPad quite easily

It also supports synching photos from aperture, as well, which is the pro-sumer product, so if you’re seriously into photos and photography, you can use aperture as well to manage and update your photos on your Mac Again, you can synchronize directly from aperture to your iPad But, we’ll look at photos a little bit later when we look at the photo applications on the iPad So, back across over on the iPad, and just to show you where the music or the videos have ended up, if I just tap on the music application down on the dock, and see there are my two albums by Thomas Dolby and Jeff Smith I just come out of there by pressing the home button I will go into all the applications in a separate section, but this is really just to show you where the media has ended up So we’ve got music in our music application There is also a video application If I tap on the videos application, you’ll see there’s my music videos The thomas dolby music album does contain a music video, so that’s ended up in the video application There’s my tv programs and also the film that I synchronized across from itunes Again, tap on the home button and it takes us back into the main home screen And over in settings, I just tap settings Ok, we’ve defaulted to general, you’ll see under general there is an option for itunes wifI synch If I just tap that option, see this Machine, this iPad is configured to automatically sync with itunes on your computer when your iPad is plugged into power and connected to wifi So when you’re recharging your iPad and if wifI is available, it will automatically synchronize If you want to force a sync, you can just tap sync now It will go ahead, find the Macbook air, in this instance, do a synchronize And there we go, it’s synchronized And we can come out of this section, out of the general section by tapping on the general button in the top corner and then come out of settings by just tapping the home button [music] AirPlay is a technology built into iOS5 that allows you to transmit the video or audio currently playing on your iPad over onto an AirPlay enabled remote device either wirelessly or via a connecting cable For wireless AirPlay, you typically need your iPad and an Apple tv or a third party AirPlay enabled device For cable AirPlay, you connect your iPad via it’s 30 pin connector to a projector or high definition tv There are subtle differences between the iPad 1 and the iPad 2 On the iPad 1, AirPlay will only work if an application has been specifically written to take advantage of AirPlay, for instance, wirelessly streaming your photo slideshow to an Apple tv or showing a keynote presentation via a hdmi connection to a high definition tv If an application hasn’t been written to support AirPlay, you won’t be able to play it on an external device The iPad 2 will do all this but will also allow you to mirror the output of any iPad application wirelessly to an Apple tv or via one of the cables Now this is perfect for demonstrating on the iPad as everything on your iPad can be mirrored to the remote device So, how do you switch on AirPlay? Well, you’ll find that, by default, if you have AirPlay enabled devices within your environment, they will be picked up automatically by the iPad For example, if I go into the video application, I have my music video Let’s tap on the music video and let’s play it And, when I play it, I will pause it straight away so you can see the AirPlay icon On the playback control panel, you’ll notice we have the standard controls, but also, on the right hand side, we have the AirPlay icon So if I just tap that, you’ll see I have several devices I have my iPad, which is checked I have a kitchen airport express, unfortunately, I’ve misnamed my airport express in the kitchen Let’s ignore that I have my kitchen Apple tv, living room Apple tv and an Apple tv in my daughter’s bedroom If I wanted to play this video on, say, my living room Apple tv, I just tap on selection And you’ll see that the video is playing on the living room Apple tv Tap the AirPlay icon again, tap the iPad and the video will now start playing on the iPad Let’s just come out of the video and back to my video application To switch on mirroring so that everything on the iPad is broadcast using AirPlay, what I need to do is go back into the multitasking bar and switch on the AirPlay icon in the additional controls This will only work on an iPad 2 So, if I go into the multitasking bar, let’s do a four-finger swipe up and then we’ll scroll across to the right Right, there’s my AirPlay icon. I tap that Because this is an iPad 2, I get the additional message down on the bottom that with AirPlay mirroring you can send everything on your display to an Apple tv wirelessly If I now tap on my living room Apple tv, there should be a new entry for mirroring Tap on that to switch it on, and that’s it So everything now that I play on my iPad will be mirrored across

wirelessly to my Apple tv and I can view everything on my high definition tv So that’s AirPlay on the iPad [music] the next group of sections, I’m going to take you through all of the default applications that are provided with the iPad So, I’ll not go into them in great detail but really just give you a flavor for how they are used For more detailed information, go across to screencastsonline.com and have a look at the iPad tutorials over there. But, let’s start off first with mobile Safari SafarI is the web browser that’s built into iOS5 It’s quite a sophisticated web browser, as well, and quite powerful So if we open Safari, mine is installed in the dock so I’ll just tap to open Safari. We have a toolbar across the top Toolbar has forward and back buttons, an icon to give you access to your bookmarks and, also, if we have a web page in place, we can send the contents of the web page to various services The url bar which I’m going to type in to, so this is the url bar Let me just type in Apple.com Well, as you can see, safarI already knows about Apple.com It’s in its bookmarks. We’ll check bookmarks later So I’ll just tap on the existing bookmark Embedded within the toolbar we have this little swirl which allows you to refresh the page, and we also have a google search box You can configure this to other search services There all done through settings application, but we’ll leave it set to google for now One thing you might notice is this is a tabbed browser, so we have this iPhone 4 S page Apple.com If I hit the plus button, you’ll see we get a second tab and it’s placed the cursor into the search term for me, so I can search for something So again, let’s search for ScreenCastsOnline We’ll hit that It takes me to a google search I can tap on the result and that takes me straight there So now I have Apple in this tab and the screenCastsonline website on the other Let’s create another tab Let’s do a search for twitter, in fact, rather than backspacing, I can just tap the little x and just type twitter There’s my suggestions. Search for twitter Let’s go to twitter.com. So I now have three tabs. And one more Rather than search, let’s go to a url we know, bbc. – but rather than .co.uk, something clever, I can tap and hold rather than .com I can see .co.uk Let go, that populates the url. Hit go and it takes me there Let’s go to the news site. Ok, four tabs I can move these tabs around, so I can drag and reorder these tabs quite easily. Back to the news site I can zoom by using the two-finger pinch, so I can zoom into particular sections or zoom out again I can tap and that will zoom into the various sections Scroll just using my fingers. Let’s find a particular article Let’s say that article there. Ok, scroll up I can double tap and that will zoom the text for me A really nice feature that’s in mobile safarI is the ability to see the web page without any of the clutter. This isn’t too bad If I just scroll, there are features and analysis down the side, those are links, and the text is really sort of off to one side I can zoom in, double tap, but it would be nice to see that in a nice, clean presentation, especially if a web page is full of advertisements, etc Well we can use feature up here called reader You’ll notice in the url box, reader If I tap on reader, that basically takes the text, the entire text of the article and presents it in this really nice, clean form You’ll see the reader icon has turned purple I can change the font by tapping here I can make the font bigger or smaller Really nice way to read your articles on the web If I tap reader again, it will pop it down Another option is to save this page to read later, so I can save it to what’s called a reading list so if I now tap on this icon here, I can add a bookmarks If I want to keep a permanent reference of this web page, I can do I can add to my reading list, which we’ll do Ok, and basically what has happened now is it saved this url If I tap on the bookmarks icon, you’ll see I have a reading list Tap there, and there is the page ready for me to read later on If I move away, if I close this tab down Let me close this page by tapping on the x next to it Right, that’s now gone Let’s go back to my reading list, tap there and it will open the page for me So the reading list is a way of storing sort of temporary bookmarks that you can read later on

We’ve mentioned bookmarks and bookmarks can be synchronized across your iOS devices, and your Mac as well if you have iCloud, as well as the reading list gets synchronized Other things we can send our web pages to, so we can add it to our home screen So, for instance, if I go back to Apple and let’s say I wanted a special Apple icon on my home page on my iPad so I could get to the Apple website quickly without loading Safari, if I tap on the icon again, add to home screen. Ok, there you go I can re-label it but we’ll leave it as Apple Tap on Add, and there we go, there is a nice icon once I tap that icon, that will take me directly to the web page Now that’s great if you have any web applications that you use frequently, you can create an icon on your home page [music] The contacts application is your Address Book on the iPad, and it’s actually called the Address Book on the Mac, but on the iPad, Apple has decided to call it contacts Now if you have an iCloud account and if you already have a Mac and you’ve set up contacts on your Mac, they will be automatically transferred from iCloud directly onto your iPad But I haven’t got any set up on this particular Machine so what I’m going to do is go into the contacts application just by tapping the contacts icon So let’s go ahead and add our first contact, and the way we do that is to tap the plus button at the bottom of the page and then we get this page to enter our contact’s details What I will do is undock the keyboards If I tap and hold the keyboard symbol and say split. Now we can see the whole page now Various fields. If I just scroll up and down you can see there are various fields I need to complete Let’s go ahead and add a name Let’s add our first user or our first contact Let’s add in Fred flintstone As we all know he works in the slate rock and gravel company We can add his mobile phone number An option to add his iPhone phone number as well Of course, with Fred being a good Apple user he doesn’t have a normal mobile, he just has his iPhone, so what I’ll do is delete the original entry for mobile just by tapping on the minus button and tapping on delete. That’s fine His home phone number, his home email address, his work email address We’ll scroll up. I can give him a default ring tone or text tone so if we get an imessage in from Fred I can get a special tone I’ll leave that. If he has a blog or home page I can type that in here Again, scroll. I can add a new address If I tap on a new address this is home address We all know he lives in cavestone road but I think I’ll temporarily move him to cupertino. Let’s put in one infinite loop For those of you that don’t realize, that’s Apple’s headquarters Let’s change that from united kingdom Just tap in search, type in a u, united states I could, as well at this point, add in his work address if I wanted to, just type add new address, but we’ll leave that for now. We can add some notes There are additional fields as well so I tap on this button here Let’s move the keyboard out of the way I can add additional fields to do with his name, with his job title and department. His twitter handle. Let’s add twitter handle in There’s a slight mistake there. I need to put the t in the middle Again, just tap and hold, position the entry point, and just type in t That’s better I can add his facebook details in if I want but let’s not do that. Ok That’s fine. Scroll up again. Let’s just go back to the fields Get the keyboard out of the way. His birthday Also related people such as his wife, etc. Let’s go ahead and put birthday in Let’s give him a birthday of today but let’s take it back a bit Scroll way back. There we go. 1930. Ok. That’s fine Tap away from the wheel and that selected it for us. Ok Back up to the top. I could have added a photo, but probably for copyright reasons I better not add a photo of Fred in What you can do, though, if you have got photos of people in your camera roll you can choose a photo or you can take a new photo as well so if you’re with them you can take a photo and use that photo I’ll leave the photo blank for now Now that we’ve set all his contact details up we’ll say Done There’s our first entry for Fred flintstone. I can see one error there His home email address I’ve put me dash com instead of dot com so let me tap edit at the bottom and, again, just tap and hold until I get the magnifying glass position insertion point Backspace. Then a full stop. That’s fine. We’ll say Done

The things you can do with the information in your contacts application, this will integrate, by the way, with mail and imessage That’s why I wanted to show you this first before showing you those applications When you’re in the contacts list you can do such things as tap on these phone numbers Because I’m on the iPad obviously it can’t make a phone call but what it will do is initiate a FaceTime conversation with Fred if they have an iPhone. I can do that I can go straight to email and send him an email If I tap on his email address that’ll create an email for me nicely addressed with the standard signature in Let’s cancel that for now. We’ll delete the draft. We’ll look at mail after we’ve looked at the contacts list. Let’s just go back to mail Several ways I can double tap the home button to get the multitasking bar up, swipe it with four fingers, or just use a four finger swipe to the left That takes me back there Send him an email from his work address type on the work email Go to his blog, that blog might exist, , but I won’t tap on it That will open safarI if I tap on his home page Let’s have a go. Let’s tap on Fred’s blog, see if Fred has got a blog No it hasn’t. Ok. No worries Forefinger swipe up. Let’s go back to contacts If I tap on his home address that opens the maps application, drops a pin at that address, and I can see here that that is the cupertino campus. I can tap at this little curl at the bottom and have a look at the satellite view. We can see the building Some nice things as well. I can look at the information There’s Fred’s information I can edit at this point but I don’t want to do that so let’s tap away I can also tap on the pin and go into google street view and scroll around There’s a view of Apple headquarters Let’s go back by tapping the little round symbol at the bottom Back into contacts, I’ll double tap the home button this time, tap on contacts If I want to send Fred a twitter message I can just tap on his twitter handle, send him a tweet, or view the tweets that he’s sent Let me just add a few more contacts in. There’s some additional contacts These are all people who are on the Mac roundtable podcast and basically I can just tap away. If I want to go to myself there’s my record there. One thing I forgot to mention is if you scroll down to the bottom you’ll see buttons that allow you to do things with the contact information. I can send a message to this contact, I can share the contact If I tap on that I can either send these contact details off in an email or in a message. I won’t do that for now Because there’s an iPhone or iOS device associated with this account I can also FaceTime with them and an option to add to favorites One last thing about the contact list, what I would suggest you do, is go into settings Double tap the home button to get to settings Then under mail, contacts, and calendar you scroll down to find contacts You can change the sort order, the display order, and you can sign which actual record is your actual info Let’s select that one. I am Don McAllister That is used in various applications It needs to know sometimes which contact address or which contact information relates to you as the owner of the iPad. Back out again It’s four finger swipe up this time back to contacts That’s a quick overview of the contacts application on the iPad [music] mail is a very important application on the iPad and consequently Apple have given us a really nice, full featured mail client To get into mail, you can see here in the dock I have my mail icon with three unread email items If I just tap on the mail icon Again, I’m recording this in landscape view Most of the sections in this particular screencast are recorded in landscape view It’s just easier to view some of the features but sometimes the application does change if you change orientation Mail is one of those applications. In landscape view we get the contents of, by default, our inbox on the left hand panel and then the contents of the mail on the right hand panel You can change that just by holding it in portrait mode If I just turn this around you’ll see that the side panel disappears and you can read the mail full screen I can move through the mail at this point by tapping the buttons at the top If I move down to the next mail item there’s the next one Welcome to icloud mail If I want to get back to my list of mails I just swipe in from the left hand side and there we are To remove that panel just swipe back across to the left Let me put this back in landscape mode because it’s easier for me to record in this particular format. Ok There’s my iCloud mail. The first one If I just tap on that email at the top that’s twitter This is asking me to confirm my twitter account that I set up in another module

As you can see the link is highlighted so I can just tap on the link and that’ll take me to safarI and authorize my account We’ll do that later. We’ll just go back to mail by doing a four finger swipe to the left and there we are back in mail It is possible to organize your mail into different mailboxes As you can see from the top of the left hand column, this is our inbox with one unread mail item If I tap on the mailboxes button I can see my inbox and I can see my trash I tap on edit and down at the bottom we have a new mailbox button Tap on that and then I can create a new mailbox Let’s call this one work mail. We’ll put the keyboard away By default the mailbox location is iCloud You can create subfolders or sub-mailboxes if you want but I’m just going to leave it at the top level and there’s our work mail and we’ll say Done. Back to our inbox As far as the mail item itself, we have a details link I can view the details, who it came from I can also mark it as flagged or unread if I want to You’ll notice on the left hand side we get that blue button to indicate the mail is unread Let’s hide those details. Four icons across the top If I want to file or move this mail to another mailbox I can tap on that particular icon Let’s say I wanted to move this message to my work mail folder Tap on there and there it goes. It’s gone Options to trash or to delete I can also reply as well, so reply, forward, or print Print is interesting You can print your emails. In fact, print is available throughout the system but you do need to have wireless air print compatible printers on your network and your iPad will go ahead and find those on your local area networks Currently they’re only selected hp, epson, and canon models but if you go across to google and google for air print compatible printers you’ll find them Juts a quick tip, if you’re a Mac user install printopia from ecam on your Mac and you’ll be able to print to printers connected to Macs on your local area network. Let’s say I wanted to reply Just tap reply and there we go. It’s addressed for us, cc/bcc field, the subject, and then an area where I can start typing in my reply Then once I’m ready I can just hit send and it will go Let me just cancel that one for now. Forward is the same If I click forward I am now able to forward this email to somebody else I’ll put that out of the way To send an email we tap on this last icon on the header bar Let me dock and merge the keyboard. There we go If I want to address it I just tap in the to field I can either start typing and it will recognize the names in people in my Address Book If I start typing don it’s found Don McAllister at my work email address If I had a home email address that would appear here as well but I can address it simply as that If I want to send it to someone else as well, say I need to peruse my Address Book, I can’t remember a person’s name, if I tap on the plus button that gives me access to all of my contacts Let’s send a mail to Fred flintstone as well, he has two email addresses Let’s send that to his home email address I can tap into the cc and bcc field and that expands I can copy someone on the message or I can blind copy them as well so bcc Blind copy just means other recipients won’t know I sent it to that particular person Type in a subject, tap in the body, and type in your email I mistyped there but it’s recognized I meant to say iPad so just hit return, that’s fine Don’t forget we can use our keyboard shortcuts that we set up before in here. If I wanted to put in ScreenCastsOnline I just type in sco and that will replace it with ScreenCastsOnline for me My website as well, sco web, return. I won’t send it to Fred flintstone I’ve used a made-up email address but that might be a real person so I’m going to tap back into the to field, I’m going to hit the backspace key, highlight Fred, backspace again, and he’s now gone My email is now ready to send. I’ll just tap on send and that’s gone I have received that email on my other Machine and I’m just going to reply it so we have some new mail coming in. I’ll send it from my Mac It will refresh periodically but if you want to force a refresh if we just tap this button down in the bottom left hand corner There we go. It’s come in If I tap on there there is my response and there is the original email below Another way to handle your mail, rather than tapping on the icons on the top, if you want to do it in bulk you can type edit and then you can select the mails that you want. Let’s say that one and that one Then I can either delete them using the buttons at the bottom, I can move them in bulk, or I can mark them as flagged or unread in bulk

Let’s go ahead and move these two to my work mail There they go. I’ve now got a clear inbox By the way, when you do create a new email you’ll notice you have this ‘sent from my iPad’ signature put in automatically If you want to change that we cancel Let’s go to my settings panel again and then under mail, contacts, and calendars, you scroll, there you go signature Tap on signature and you can overwrite that or leave it in and append to it What I would tend to do is delete these and say cheers, Don Come back out. There’s my new signature Back across to mail with a four finger swipe, tap on new mail, and there’s my new signature. Let’s cancel that That’s just a quick run-through on mail on the iPad [music] iOS5 has a calendar application to allow you to record your dates and events And again, if you have an iCloud account, it will synchronize your appointments and your events across all your iOS devices and also your Mac as well. What I need to do is go into calendar The first view that you see is this day view It’s like a daybook Actually, I’ve not entered any events in here, but it has picked up Fred flinstone’s birthday If you remember back to the contacts module, I set up Fred’s birthday as today Consequently, in the calendar it’s showing me Fred flintstone’s birthday Let’s have a quick look at the interface and I’ll show you how to add events At the top we have a button for calendars By default we have a home calendar and a work calendar If I edit I can add additional calendars if I want I won’t at this point, so we’ll say “Done,” and tap away. Invitations No invitations at the moment That’s basically if someone invites you to a meeting You can accept or reject any invitations They will appear there for you. This is the day view If we scroll down across the bottom you can jump to any of the days just by using that scroller Now we can go back to today by tapping on the today button in the bottom left hand corner If I want to jump a month, you’ll see january is at the end of this row I can tap on january. That will take me to january Then I can scroll within january If I tap on the arrow, that will take me on a day by day basis Let’s go back to today Let’s leave the other views until we’ve added some events in We click the plus button. Let’s arrange, say, lunch Location, let’s say it’s going to be a swanky London restaurant It’s going to be today, so we’ll start not at ten Let’s say we’ll start at one. And then we’ll tap on ends We’ll finish at four It’s not going to be an all day event and the time zone is london That’s fine, so we’ll say “Done.” I can set it to repeat I wouldn’t repeat a lunch appointment but it was something that was going to happen at the same time every week or the same time every day, you can set up a recurring event. Invite people, so if I type in Joe Now I’ve got two js, Joe Bloggs and Jonathan, but if I just type Joe I could select from that point There we go There’s Joe Bloggs. Let’s select Joe Bloggs We’ll say “Done.” that will now send an email off to Joe Bloggs It’s actually myself under a pseudonym Once I receive that email I can reply to the invitation I can set up an alert, so if I want to be alerted I can set up a reminder at the time of the event, minutes before, hours before, or days before We’ll say “cancel” for that one. Use my work calendar I can select home or work or whichever other calendars I’ve got set up and my availability I can also put a url in, as well, which can refer to anything Let’s put the url of the restaurant so .co.uk. I’ll just tap and hold the .com Select .co.uk and then some notes as well. But let’s just say “Done.” I can see my appointments on the left hand side Lunch with Joe No replies yet from Joe Bloggs. The url of the restaurant I can tap on that. That will take me straight there There we go Let’s double tap the home button and go back to my calendar Really now, I just need to wait for Joe to reply to my invitation On my iPhone I just had a message. Lunch with Joe at the ivy, 1:00 Let me just respond to that from my iPhone. I’m going to accept Ok, I’ve just accepted on my iPhone, so we should see something come back soon to show that Joe has now replied While we’re waiting for that, let’s set up another appointment I hit the plus button. This time, let’s say it’s going to be a meeting It’s going to be tomorrow at 10:00 til 11:00 That’s fine. We’ll say, “Done” and Done I won’t bother again with any of the other details Let’s now flip the page and take me to friday Let’s have a look at some of the views We’ve got week view, so there’s my two events that I’ve set up

I can see Fred’s birthday in the top The all day events up here at the top, and you can scroll up and down to see the different events at the set time periods. I have a month view Again, very easy to summarize and have a look Again, I can scroll to any month by using the slider at the bottom Go back to today. A year view This is quite clever in that it’s color coded It’s sort of like a map of when you are most busy If you have one or two events it will be yellow or blue If you have more than one or two events it goes to red You can quite easily see across the year when your most busiest time is And then we also have a list view, as well. Let’s go back to day Now you can see here that Joe has accepted my lunch invitation That’s fine. And that’s the calendar This section is about photos and also the camera built into the iPad Now the iPad 1, the original iPad, doesn’t have any cameras, whereas the iPad 2 has, in fact, two cameras It has a rear facing camera, and that’s the camera on the back of the iPad that points away from you when you hold the iPad screen in front of you That enables you to take high resolution still photos and also hd movies There’s a second camera on the front edge which is the forward facing camera You would use that normally to use such applications as FaceTime, so you can take a video of your face To get to the camera, and we’ll start with the camera first, you need to tap on the camera icon on the home screen This is going to be difficult because I’m in my conservatory I couldn’t track down either of my two cats to act as models for this particular photo shoot But basically, I’ve got some good daylight here so I’m just going to take a photo of the couch I just tap the photo button on the bottom bar and that takes our first photo Now to get to that photo I can just swipe to the right and see immediately the results of my handywork Swipe back to the left and I’m back to the camera Now let’s take another photo, this time, perhaps, of the christmas tree I can also take a video. I can slide the video slider to the right, tap the shutter button, and now I’m taking video. Let’s just pan over to the left Tap the button again. And that’s my video I can switch cameras by tapping the camera icon up in the top I can get to the images and videos I’ve taken directly from the camera by tapping on the camera roll icon down in the bottom left hand corner, but let me come out by going to the home page What I will do is go into the photos application These are the two images and the video that I took I also have access to albums At the moment, I have a single album, which is my camera roll And also, had I enabled gps location, I could access places as well That would show me where I took the photos Let’s go back to photos. From this page, I can do several things I can start a slideshow off. There’s a slideshow button If I tap that, you can add music and transitions in if you want to, but I won’t do a slideshow at this point I can either delete photos or share them by tapping on the button in the top right hand corner. I can share, copy, and delete If I want to delete a particular photo, I just tap on the photo The middle one is selected and tap delete. But I’m not going to tap it for now I can also add it to an album, so if I wanted to start creating albums I just say, “add to,” “add to new album.” let’s say I wanted to create a christmas album We’ll say “save” now we have a camera roll and also our christmas album Let’s go back to photos. There’s my three photos If I tap on an individual photo, say this first one, I am now able to edit the photo. If I tap edit I have some new controls I can do such things as rotate. Tap down at the bottom I can rotate the photo. There’s an option to enhance I’ll do an auto enhance. Actually, not too good, to be honest Let’s revert to original by tapping on the button at the top Ok, that’s fine. I can also remove red eye If I have people in the photos that have red eyes, I can use the red eye control. Tap each red eye Of course, I haven’t got any to remove, so we won’t do that I’ll say “cancel.” and also to crop, as well I can put this grid on and just grab one of the corners and just crop the photo to wherever I want I can put in constraint, so if I want it to be square or set proportions I can do that But we’ll just leave it as it is and we’ll say, “crop.” tap on the top corner and that crops our photo Let’s revert back to original again. We’ll cancel editing I can swipe to get to the next photo, tap it, and get the same controls up again. From here, I can do a slideshow I can share from here, as well. I can email

I can send it via a message. Assign it to a contact, so if I’ve taken someone’s face I can put that in their contact details. Use as wallpaper I want to use it as my wallpaper on my iPad Tweet it, print it, or copy The next icon is the AirPlay, so I can tap on AirPlay and see the AirPlay devices that I can send or display this photo on And then the last option is to delete it. Send it to the trash Delete everywhere It knows it’s in my camera roll and it also is in an album Let’s just say “no,” to that Again, let me just come back out to the home screen There is another service related to iCloud to do with photos That’s photostream That’s the ability, if you have an iCloud account, to seamlessly upload and download photos between all your different devices automatically For instance, I have an ipod touch which I’ve configured to use the same iCloud account If I just open up the photos application Let’s come out of here and go to photos I’ve got photos, albums, and places. Ok, let’s come out Let’s go to settings And then under iCloud you’ll see there is an option here for photostream If I switch that on As you can see, photostream automatically uploads new photos to iCloud and downloads them to all of your devices when connected to wifi If I take another photo on this device it will go up to my iCloud It will appear on my ipod touch It will also appear on my Mac because I have iphoto configured for photostream, as well. Let me just demonstrate that to you Rather than take a photo from here, I’ll go into my ipod touch and take a photo That should miraculously appear within my photos application If I go back into photos, you’ll see there’s a new option now, photostream Currently there are no photos It stores the last 30 days of your photos on iCloud You can then drag them out into various albums or other places Let’s go ahead on my ipod touch Let’s just take a simple photo of a little remote control on my desk That photo has now been taken We’ll just give it a few seconds for it to upload to iCloud and then it should appear within our photostream. There it is Ok, literally a few seconds and there is the photo As I say, not a particularly good photo, but this is great because if you have an iPhone or an ipod touch and you’re out and about, and you take some photos and then get to a wifI hotspot immediately those photos will be uploaded to iCloud and then downloaded to your iPad, downloaded to your Mac, all seamlessly and automatically I just open that up. I’ll tap on it. There it is I’d say a bit grainy. It’s a very old ipod touch, but you get the principle Tap again. Back to photostream. Select the photo Add to new album Gadgets. And have a new album called gadgets That’s photos on the iPad The messages application is new within iOS5 and uses a new technology called imessage Basically what imessage allows you to do is to send messages and photos and videos to anyone else that has an iOS enabled device That’s anyone else who has an iPhone, anyone else who has an iPad, or anyone else who has an ipod touch What you can do, if we go into messages If I wanted to send a message to Joe Bloggs. Joe is in my Address Book He has an iPhone, so it comes with this little blue bubble so it knows that’s going to be an imessage I’ll send to him. I just address it. Enter my message here “Hi, Joe. How’s it going?” I can send him a photo Let’s choose one of my existing photos. Let’s send him the photo of the gadget Say, “use,” and then we’ll say, “send.” that’s sending the message across Joe will see my photo of my gadget. Once Joe receives it and starts replying, you’ll see there is a little bubble at the bottom with three dots That shows me that Joe has received the message and is replying Let’s way for the message to come in. There we go. It looks good A couple of other things to point out. You’ll notice that it says “delivered.” we have confirmation that the message was delivered to Joe, and also Joes response We can just communicate now using imessage. It’s completely free But anyway, that’s imessage and the messages application We’ve touched on music and videos already in the earlier synchronizing with itunes section, and as you will have seen in that section if we go to the music application, I have two albums that I have synchronized across from itunes Tap the home button once to go back to the home screen Tap on videos I have a film and a tv program and also a music

video, all synchronized across from itunes on my Mac You can access the itunes store directly from your iPad and either purchase new music or videos or tv shows, but also download purchases that you’ve made before. If I go into the itunes store, you’ll see pretty much the same as the app store before. It’s a very similar layout We’ve got access to all sorts of content that we can buy–music, films–these are all tabs along the bottom–tv programs, etc Or if I have an existing Apple ID that I’ve already purchased content with, I can jump straight to my purchased tab, and this shows me all the content that I’ve purchased from itunes So if I want to download something–let’s say my mark king album–either individual tracks or the whole album–I can just tap on the little cloud symbol next to the tracks or let’s do the whole album I tap on that cloud symbol, it will download that for me That’s prompting me for my Apple ID password, so let me just enter that We’ll say ok And if we tap on the downloads tab, we can see those downloads occurring If we go across to the music app–let’s go to our home screen, tap in music and there’s the new album being downloaded I tap on the album and you can see the download progress of each individual track. Right, they’re all downloaded I can start playing the track. I’ve got play controls at the top Let me just pause that. There’s a slow quiet intro I can access the album art directly I can tap again and bring up some other controls –the same controls but in a dark format rather than a light format We’ll carry on from here. I can cycle or repeat by tapping on this icon I can scrub through the track. I just grab that orange bar I can scrub through for more sort of granular scrubbing, if I move my finger further down I can move backwards and forwards to scrub more slowly As I go toward the top it’s faster. I can set it to repeat I can also go into genius as well, you know, unfortunately, because this is a small library on the iPad, there aren’t enough related songs to create a genius playlist, but once you have lots of songs it will create a genius playlist for you Genius basically means grouped together–songs of a similar genre So you can create your own genius playlists Option to change the volume and also an AirPlay button to stream the music to an AirPlay device Down the bottom, access to your playlists, to your songs, artists, albums, and more genres and composers and then a search panel Let’s have a quick look at the video player Now because of the way I have my Machine configured, I can actually play the video on the screen I’m using an external capture device so it thinks it has a tv connected So when I go into a video, I get the standard screen–gives you information about the video and then a play button If I do tap play, the video is appearing on my second screen, but you can see the controls These are the standard controls that we have for video playback Airplay again, so I can stream to another device and scrub backwards and forwards through the video It’s all very straightforward. And let’s say Done So that’s music, video and the itunes store on the iPad The reminders application is a very simple application to enable you to create very basic to-dos or reminders for yourself And again, if you have an iCloud account, they are synchronized across your iOS devices. So I go into the reminders application I can add a quick reminder, “get some milk.” I can tap on the reminder and get into the details So I have the title, when to remind me on a particular day–say that’s going to be tomorrow at 9:00 I’ll say “Done” and if I want it to be a repeating event, so every day, every week, every two weeks, etc. I can do, but we’ll say “none,” so that’s fine, let’s cancel that. Show more, set a priority–it’s high priority I’ll say Done, and then some notes — semi-skimmed and I can delete it also from this point if I want, but we’ll say Done, so that’s my reminder set for tomorrow at 9:00 Now you can create different types of reminder lists So currently I have one set for reminders–if I say edit, create new list that’s called shopping Ok, so there’s my new shopping list And to change the order I use these grab handles at the sides Let’s move that to the top and we’ll say Done Once I’ve completed the reminder, just a tap –go into completed You’ll see it now appears in my completed list Now there’s also a date view as well, to show you

various dates, so you can have a look around Very simple, very neat, very effective way of creating simple reminders on your iPad Newsstand is a new feature in iOS5 that allows you to purchase newspapers and magazines But the nice thing with newsstand is once you’ve purchased a particular periodical it will be pushed to your iPad automatically when it’s published So for instance if you have a three-month subscription to a particular newspaper, every time that newspaper is published, it will be pushed out to your device so that you don’t have to go download it each time Now the first time I use it obviously I will have to download some content But let me go ahead and go into newsstand, currently empty So I can go to the newsstand store You will find there’s quite a few periodicals that do allow you to download some free content just to try them out So let’s say for instance the national geographic magazine So go ahead and say, install. There, it installs it onto my newsstand I see the front page of the current edition. So there we have it I tap on there, takes me into national geographic I would like to send new issues and push notifications and I’ll say ok I haven’t got any previous purchases but if I had I could restore them at this point, so no thanks. Ok, so there’s options there to buy individual episodes There is a subscription as well or I can download the sampler So let me go ahead and download the sampler Ok, 37 megabytes coming down. Ok, let me go ahead and view And there’s my periodical. I can scroll through, read through Some instructions here Now each particular magazine tends to have different controls, so they normally give you some help on how to access them I come up back to my home screen, and then go back to the store Let’s pop another periodical on the newsstand and GT Porsche–let’s have a look at that That’s free, I’ll install that. And again, it appears on the stand It has the front page of the current issue Once it’s installed, I can tap in, I will say ok for notifications Ok, so there’s one issue at 2.99 and you can just swipe through and decide which one you want to buy So the application is free, but the actual periodicals themselves do have a cost normally, although you can sometimes find a sample that you can use. Let’s have a look at special issues. These are all pay for content Back out, and there are my two periodicals Now when you do get a new issue–so I’ve subscribed to national geographic–what will happen is the cover will change to the current issue and you’ll also get a little flash in the corner indicating that a new episode is available. Ok, so that’s newsstand The game center application which I have on my other screen, so let me just swipe across There it is on the top left-hand corner Game center is a way for you to connect with friends and have a look at things as leader boards and ratings and basically be more social when you do play games. More and more games are now being written to take advantage of game center and the features that it has So let’s start off game center Ok, I’m going to log in using my standard Apple ID Let me just first pop in my password. I’ll say Done Ok, so I’m scotutor3 Let me just tap on account and view account There are some settings to be aware of So game invites, we currently allow friends to invite you to play games You have a privacy setting, so currently you have a public profile, which can either be on or off So when it’s off, only your friends can see your profile, including your real name Game center will recommend you to other players and your nickname will be used on public leaderboards I switch that on, you’ll see that the main change here is that your profile, including your real name, will be visible to other players I’m going to leave that off for now. There are various things down here–your verified email address You can add additional emails to get notifications from, and then your nickname You can change that–tap on it and change it And also your account id, your Apple ID, and the country that you belong to So we’ll say Done. And basically that’s it You’re now logged into game center. You can see your friends Currently I don’t have any friends joined to me on game center I can tap the plus button and send a friend request to someone, say I would like to be their friend and they can join me in game center, but I’ll say cancel for now If you want to see what games are enabled for game center, tap on games It shows you all the different games that you can

download, install and play with your friends And then there’s an option here under requests to see what requests have gone out Now to be honest, I’m not a big game player, so I haven’t used game player very much But if you check it out, I’m sure if you are a gamer, it will really add to the experience Ok, so that’s game center on iOS5 Maps is a great addition to the iPad, and one of those applications that you can really demonstrate it to its full potential Now if we go into the maps application, It’s remembered that we were last looking at one infinite loop, which is where we placed Fred flintstone, I can use a two-finger pinch to zoom in and out It looks really nice Tap on the page curl, have a look at a different view, so standard view, satellite–which we just looked at–hybrid, which gives us both the overlay of road names on top of the map and also terrain Ok, let’s put it back to satellite view Options also for traffic–you probably noticed Traffic we can drop pins An easy way to drop pin is to just to place your finger on and then you’ll see a drop pin will appear with the approximate address of where you dropped it–let me zoom in slightly So if I wanted to move this pin, just move it to that road junction, do a street view, and I can look around Ok, tap on the symbol to come out Now what I can also do is get directions So directions–that’s directions from where my pin is currently now to where I last dropped a pin, which was the cupertino address And if I have a look here it would take me–if I tap on the car, it would take me three minutes Tap on the bus–there are no public transport directions Tap on the person–it would take me 12 minutes to walk Tap on start, and it shows you the route. I can zoom in and see exactly where I need to go to walk to Cupertino Now options also for getting your current position, and also for looking at the addresses of those in your contacts list Now let’s do a quick search If we go to here and search for say moscone, do a search for the Moscone center in San Francisco where the annual Macworld Expo is–did I mean Moscone–yes, I did. So we’ll tap yes Ok, so there are some hotels–sponsored link that I can see there on that drop pin–do a quick street view And we have the Moscone Center. Very, very clever And let’s just pop out and back to the main view And that’s maps on the iPad Now to finish off with the final three applications, just really to tell you about them and what they are We have photo booth, and that uses the forward-facing camera to take some weird and whacky photos of yourself We have FaceTime, which allows you again, using the forward-facing video camera, to video conference with friends and contacts and also we have the youtube application, which allows you access to YouTube videos All of those applications very simple to use Once you’ve used them you’ll soon get used to them So anyway, that’s it for this particular tutorial I hope that I’ve given you enough information to become an expert in the iPad The best way to use this video is once you’ve seen it through is to keep it as reference Use the chapter pop-up list to jump to the various chapters and just review some of the information Now some of it may appear a bit complex, especially to learning the gestures, etc, but once you’ve used it for a while you will find that the iPad is probably the easiest computer that you’ve ever owned Now if you want any more information about iPad applications, from january I will doing some new weekly video tutorials all about the iPad over at screencastsonline.com So go across to screencastsonline.com/iPad and those tutorials will go into more details about the iPad, but also I’ll be looking at additional applications that you can download and install to make the most out of your iPad and also your iPhone as well if you’re an iPhone user So this is Don McAllister signing off I hope you enjoyed this particular tutorial, and I will speak to you on the next one
