iPad iPhone Getting Organised

Objective

iPad GesturesTo explain the iPad iPhone screens, how you use them, organising Apps on Screens, and in folders, finger gestures and how to get around.

So if you see something you want to investigate, touch it and you’ll usually get a reaction. When you need to enter data, touch the data area (field) and a cursor will appear in the field, and a keyboard pop up for you to type. When you install an App, it will appear as an icon on the Home Screen (there will be many more of these and swiping your finger from right to left, or the reverse, will scroll to these other screens. Group Apps into folders, making them easier to find when you have larger numbers.
