hand gestures on your ipad

1 Tap Tapping is the main way you will navigate your iPad. To open an app, you must tap it from your Home screen, for example (Fig 1). You’ll mainly be tapping the iPad to select things like web links in Safari, songs in Music, or pictures in Photos. You’ll also need to tap to type on the on-screen keyboard when it appears in numerous apps such as Mail, Messages, Reminders and Notes. 2 Scroll Scrolling is when you drag your finger up or down the iPad’s screen (Fig 2).
