welcome to ipad user magazine, helping you to do more with your ipad

Sometimes, it’s easy to forget just how much your iPad is capable of. We all tend to get into our groove with a computer and become set in the things we normally do, and how we do them. But it’s worth breaking out of the routine every so often, and trying some of the free apps we’ve got for you this issue is a great way to do that. The abundance of free apps on iPadOS is perfect for those who’ve spent all their cash on the tablet itself, but is also ideal if you just want to try something different without putting your wallet up front. We’ll always advocate that you should pay for things that give you pleasure or help you work, if you’re able, but it’s nice to…

save time and stay secure with password autofill

IT WILL TAKE 10 minutes YOU WILL LEARN How to create and retrieve AutoFill passwords YOU’LL NEED Sites asking for passwords If someone can guess your account password, they can do serious damage to your finances Passwords are a pain, we know. The hassle of inventing them and the difficulty of remembering them explains why the most commonly used passwords are “12345678” and “password” every single year. But strong passwords are essential to protect all the things you have online: if someone or somebody’s software can guess, say, your Amazon password, they can do serious damage to your finances. The good news is that Safari’s AutoFill can create, securely store and recall very complex passwords so you get the benefit of strong passwords without having to come up with or remember them. In addition to using strong passwords,…

use a mouse with your ipad

IT WILL TAKE 10 minutes YOU WILL LEARN Pair and use a Bluetooth mouse YOU’LL NEED iPadOS 13, a Bluetooth mouse Not everyone is always enamoured with a touch-screen interface, and thanks to iPadOS, if you prefer point and click to touch and drag, your prayers have been answered: albeit with some provisos. Setup is relatively simple – if you know where to look (see below). Mouse support is intended as an accessibility option for those with motor issues, which means it’s not like adding a true cursor – it just emulates you using your finger, so you need to treat it that way. However, this also means there are several customisation options; take the time to go through the AssistiveTouch menu settings for options such as the Tracking Speed slider to fine-tune the responsiveness. To change…

file and folder management made easy

IT WILL TAKE 15 minutes YOU WILL LEARN How to use the new Files app YOU’LL NEED iPadOS 13, the Files app It’s been a slightly bumpy ride, but the Files app finally comes of age in iPadOS 13. Now it gives you access to virtually all your files and folders – whether in the cloud, on your iPad or even stored on a USB stick, SD card or network drive – from your iPad. The newest iteration adds plenty of new features – all practical and welcome. In addition to those covered in the annotation below and step-by-step guide on the next page, you’ll find you can now download files to your iPad using Safari, plus share entire folders as well as individual files to your iCloud Drive (although you’ll need to wait for iPadOS 13.2…

add safari extensions

IT WILL TAKE 5 minutes YOU WILL LEARN How to customise extensions in Safari YOU’LL NEED Your iPad, some extensions Back in the early days of the internet, web browsers did one thing and one thing only: they showed you web pages. But we wanted more. We wanted to be able to share links with a click, to block irritating adverts, to create PDFs and to do all kinds of things – and to make that happen, developers started writing extensions. If you write Shortcuts in Apple’s Shortcuts app you can include them in Safari’s Actions menu Extensions are little helper programs that add features to an app, so for example on your Mac you can install Safari extensions that check your grammar in online forms, that store your passwords, that check online shops for extra discount codes and…

master your reading goals

IT WILL TAKE 5 minutes YOU WILL LEARN How to set daily and annual reading goals YOU’LL NEED Some books or audiobooks We all know that reading is good for us, but sometimes we’re not brilliant at making the time to do it. Apple’s Books app can help with that: it enables you to set a daily and annual reading goal for books and audiobooks that gently encourages you to read or listen in much the same way that Activity encourages you to complete your step count each day. Books, however, is more like a librarian than a fitness coach: it won’t nag you into finishing that novel and when it congratulates you it does so with just a quiet notification. The first time you use the Reading Goals feature, you’ll only see your progress towards today’s goal –…
