Newburgh iPad Training

  • Configure and Set up (From Mac Observer)
    • When the first iPads shipped in 2010, users were required to connect it to a Mac or PCrunning iTunes. iTunes took care of the iPad registration and configuration. From iTunes, you would set up your preferences for what items to load and keep synced with your iPad.
    • With the advent of iOS 5.0 last year, an iPad is a stand alone device that can be configured out of the box, so long as you have a Wi-Fi connection.
    • So the first thing you’ll want to do is know the name of your Wi-Fi hot spot and the password. You’ll need to recognize the name because someone else may have set it up, and the iPad, when it boots up, will show you the names of all the hotspots it sees, including, possibly, all your neighbors. You want your own, of course.
    • iPads have a hefty battery, and your new one likely has considerable charge out of the box. But just to be safe, during all this initial set up, plug it in to an outlet.
  • Boot-Up
    • On the top right of the iPad, as you face it, is a small, rectangular button. Hold it down for a second or two and let go. In a few seconds you’ll see the Apple logo on the screen as the operating systemboots up.
    • The iPad will walk you through the set up process.
    • What you will see
      • In more detail, the sequence is:
        • Welcome, select language
        • Select country or region
        • Location services
        • Log on to Wi-Fi Network
        • Set up as new iPad or restore
        • Sign into iCloud (optional)
        • Agree to the Apple license
        • Backup options
        • Enable “Find my iPad”
        • Dictation option
        • Send diagnostics to Apple
        • Register the device
        • Start Using iPad
    • Apple ID entry comes up. You’ll need that to register your iPad with Apple and also make purchases. You needn’t worry about registering an Apple ID.
    • You don’t have to also give Apple a credit cardnumber unless you want to make purchases.
    • I highly recommend using iTunes gift cards instead.
    • The final button, of course, is “Start Using iPad.” There you’ll see the home page of apps that come pre-installed with the iPad.

    • To purchase and download from the iTunes Store, you'll need to have an Apple ID. If you have used other Apple services such as MobileMe, the Mac App Store, or have purchased from the Apple Online Store, you can sign in to the iTunes Store using the same Apple ID. If you don't have an Apple ID, you will need to create one before you can begin using the iTunes Store.

  • 1-2-3 Finger Gesturing

external image ios-gestures-tap-259873.jpg
    • You can tap to open apps, bring up controls, make choices from menus, and more.
Tap: As clicking is to a desktop computer, so is tapping to an iOS device. Tapping is the most common and basic gesture.
    • Double-tap: Tap an object twice in succession to effect a double-tap. Double-taps are primarily used for zooming in or out on text.
    • Tap, hold, and drag: For some functions, such as highlighting text, copying and pasting, or deleting and moving apps, you’ll need to tap and hold down on the screen. When you do this on a piece of text, it will highlight in blue, and editing handles—vertical lines with blue dots—will appear on either side of the highlighted area. You can tap, hold, and, while holding down, drag your finger to increase or decrease the selection. Dragging also comes into play for moving objects in apps, drawing, and swiping and flicking.

external image ios-gestures-swipe-259866.jpg
    • Drag your finger across the screen, up, down, left, or right, to swipe.
Flick and swipe: Swiping is one of your primary navigational tools: You use a left or right swipe to move through app pages on your Home screen or images in the Photos app; you use an up or down swipe to read text in Safari, iBooks, Newsstand, or elsewhere. It’s one of the easiest gestures to learn. A flick is just like a swipe, only faster: Your device supports inertial scrolling, which means that the faster or slower you move your finger, the faster or slower content will move. If you want to get to the bottom of a page quickly, just flick your finger upward in a fast motion.
    • One note of caution: All flicking and swiping on your device is inverse, meaning that when you move your finger down (in other words, swipe down), you’re actually moving whatever is on the screen upward. This makes perfect sense in the real world, but coming from a computer, where scrolling down on a trackpad or mouse actually scrolls the window down, it can be a bit disorienting at first. Why make the clarification? In this book, we refer several times to “swiping right” to bring up a left-hand navigational bar—which can be confusing to parse, if you don’t know about inverse gestures.

external image ios-gestures-pinch-259861.jpg
    • To zoom in or out, you’ll use the pinch gesture (also referred to as pinch-to-zoom).
Pinch: To zoom in or to open something, place your thumb and index finger, pinched together, on screen and spread them apart. To zoom out, do the reverse: Start with your thumb and index finger outwards, and then pinch them together.
  • Basic Navigation
    • Navigation Basics (from Mac World)

      Now that you’ve taken your first step into the iOS world with multitouch gestures, it’s time to learn how to navigate your device. We’ll go over where your apps are stored, how to organize them, search for them, and delete them.
      The Home screen: When you first turn on your device, you’re brought to the Home screen. Here, you’ll see an assortment of icons grouped into rows, and several more icons grouped in the silver Dock along the bottom of the screen. The Home screen is where your apps live, and where you can launch them. Because only 16 apps will fit on one Home screen (20 on the iPad), you can have multiple app pages or screens for organizing your apps (up to 11). Above the Dock, you’ll see a series of dots, with one highlighted in white; these dots signify the number of app pages you have. Swipe left or right to go from page to page.
      The Dock: The silver translucent bar along the bottom of your Home screen is called the Dock. If you’ve tried swiping between app pages, you’ll notice the icons in the Dock don’t change. That’s because the Dock is for apps you most frequently use; instead of having to swipe from page to page to find an app, you can drop it directly into the Dock for easy access. You can store up to four apps in the Dock.
      Search in Spotlight: You can search for every email message, webpage, and app on your device, or search through Google or Wikipedia, by swiping right on your Home screen until you reach Spotlight. (If you're on the first Home screen page, pressing your Home button also summons the Spotlight screen.) To search, just type your query in the text box at the top.
      Open and close an app: Want to launch an app? To open it, all you have to do is tap its icon. Once it’s open, you can return to the Home screen at any time by pressing the Home button.
      external image zoomIcon.pngexternal image ios-5-rearrange-259786.jpg

      Tap and hold on an app icon to enter edit mode, where you can rearrange apps, add them to folders, and delete third-party programs from your device.
      Rearrange and delete apps: To rearrange the order of your icons, tap and hold any icon on the Home screen. After a few seconds, all your app icons, including the one you’re holding, will start to wiggle, and a small black X will pop up in each icon’s top left corner. Once they do this, you can rearrange any apps on the Home screen, or even drag them into or out of the Dock. If you’ve installed a third-party app you don’t want anymore, you can tap the X to delete it (you cannot delete the apps that came preinstalled on your device). When you’re finished, press the Home button, and your icons will stop wiggling and stay in their new location. You can also rearrange your icons and Home screen pages through iTunes when you connect your device to your computer.
      Note that you’re not able to delete the built-in apps that come with your iOS device. These include Camera, Photos, YouTube, Clock, Weather, and the all-new Newsstand folder, among others. You’ll be able to tell which apps you can’t delete—they don’t sport the black X. You are able to move around these built-in apps to your liking, however.
      Use folders: Having a bunch of apps scattered on your Home screen is OK if you don’t have too many, but when you start amassing a collection, you can use app folders. A folder is a group of apps, represented by a single icon, on your Home screen. Each folder sports miniature icons representing the apps inside, along with an overall name. When you tap a folder, the Dock fades and slides down, making room for a view of the folder’s contents. Within, you’ll find the name and icon for each app. Tap any app to launch it, or tap anywhere outside the folder to return to the Home screen.
      external image zoomIcon.pngexternal image ios-5-add-app-folder-259816.png

      Drag an app icon on top of another app icon to create a folder.
      To create a folder, start by tapping and holding any app icon to enter edit mode; after the icons begin to wiggle, drag an app on top of another app. When you release the app, you’ll create a folder, which will open and display both apps. By default the folder is named based on the App Store category for one of the first two apps in the folder. If you want to customize this name, just tap inside the field (while still in edit mode) and enter something new. When you’re done, press the Home button to exit edit mode.
      To add another app to the folder, reenter edit mode and drag the desired app onto the folder icon. Repeat until you’ve added all the apps you want (up to 12 per folder on the iPhone or iPod touch; 20 on the iPad), and then press the Home button to exit edit mode.
      To edit the folder itself, its name, contents, or the layout of the apps inside, you can either enter edit mode and then tap the folder, or, while the folder is open, tap and hold any icon inside. You can then tap the folder’s name to change it, drag apps within the folder to rearrange them, drag an app out of the folder to return it to the Home screen, or tap an app’s Delete button to completely delete it from your device. Unlike apps, folders don’t have a Delete button; to delete a folder, you must remove all the apps from it.
    • Manage folders from iTunes: iTunes has long allowed users to manage installed apps when syncing, and you can edit your folders too, using your mouse and keyboard. When your device is connected to your computer, the Apps tab in iTunes lets you choose which apps to sync, as well as decide how to organize these apps. Drag an app onto another app and, after a slight delay, a folder is created—just as if you’d performed the same action on your device. You get the same editable folder name, and you can rearrange icons within the folder. Since you’re using a computer, you don’t need to click and hold to enter the jiggling-icon edit mode; you can click and drag anytime. Similarly, to edit an existing folder, just double-click it.
