Typing Tips


1. Restart the iPad. Press and hold the power button until the "Slide to power off" comes up. Slide it!

2. Uninstall it and then reinstall it. Make sure to get it off the App Store in the “Purchased” tab on bottom.

Save an Image off the Web: Press and hold on the image. If that doesn’t work take a snapshot of the screen.

Sharing: Look for an arrow out of a box. I usually save to the photo library/camera roll
