It happens to all of us. Sometimes, the mistake is harmless and just makes us look like we are bad at grammar. Sometimes, iOS’s autocorrect feature gets us into deep trouble, or just makes for a very funny joke. This week, we are going to show you how to turn off the autocorrect feature on your iPad so that, when you are quickly typing those iMessages and emails, you won’t accidentally hit send before correcting, “Can you give me a rise to the shaping mall?”
Welcome back to another episode of our weekly how-to guide. Right now, there might be millions of new iPad owners out there. The numbers aren’t in yet, and it is impossible to tell how many iPad Air purchasers are new to the iOS operating system, but I’ll bet there are a few of you. Each week, we cover the basics of how to use your iPad, and try to fill you in on some of the extra features you may not have already known.
This week, we have a simple trick for getting Siri to say names in your contacts correctly. From now on, she (or he) won’t confuse “Michelle” with “Michel.”
Back in February of 2013, the Sunrise Calendar app launched on the iPhone. It was hugely successful for it’s attractive flat design ahead of Apple’s iOS 7 remodel. A year later, in January of this year, the app was finally optimized for the iPad. Last week the app launched on OS X, so now you can have all of your calendars and events synced across all of your Apple Devices with the same look and experience everywhere.
This year, I invested in an annual pass to Disneyland and have had a lot more experience with park visits than I ever have before. I’ll be visiting the park in just a few days. Since I’ve got Disney on the brain, I thought I’d fill you in on some of the ways the iPad (and iPhone) can help make your visit smooth.
If you’ve been wondering what that whole Windows RT experience is like, but don’t want to invest hundreds of dollars in a second tablet, there is a way for you to get a virtual version of Windows on your iPad. You’ll have to pay a monthly subscription fee, but you won’t have to purchase a whole tablet to enjoy Windows on a mobile device.
Tablets have proven themselves as serious competitor for laptops and other personal computing solutions, but analysts are expecting a reduction in tablet sales due to the increasing buzz around wearable devices. As more devices are released it is increasingly apparent that the number of gadgets that people are willing to buy and use have a limited number.
I was a Trapper Keeper user when I was a kid. If I remember correctly, mine was rainbow themed and was designed by Lisa Frank. When I got into high school, I had one of those splashed paint designed ones. I thought I was so Mod. There were many other designs in my locker throughout my school years. However, one thing remained the same across 13 years of learning. I always had a Trapper Keeper.
Kensington has just announced a new line of Mead inspired universal cases for 10 and 8-inch tablets. You may not be able to choose from the long list of licensed designs, but the fold-over front flap will certainly remind you of first period History.
Last week, we told you how to remove duplicate tracks in iTunes Match. In the process of writing the guide, it came to my attention that we never actually explained to our users just how to subscribe to iTunes Match in the first place. By now, most of our readers would have already joined the service or decided not to. However, Apple is always gaining new users to iOS, and hopefully we are always gaining new readers to PadGadget.
The TSA has announced the implementation of new security measures for passengers of some flights that are entering the United States from abroad.
