One of the most popular technological advancements within the last two years is Apple’s iPad. Surely, you probably know a handful of people who owns one. With its capacity to perform different functions and features, there is no question as to why it is such a hit with people all around the globe. It transcends age demographics because not only is it user-friendly, it also has multiple functions. It has built-in applications such as Safari and Mail.
What is Safari?
Safari is the Internet browser of the iPad. With an available Internet connection, you will be able to access the Internet quickly with this application. Aside from that, you will be able to browse faster by just tapping, pinching and scrolling on the screen. This also allows you to read articles and journals online without too much clutter in the screen that may serve as your distraction.
Safari also saves your pages, which allows you to go back to them even if you do not have Wi-Fi access. Here, you are not precluded from sharing to other users the sites that you find interesting and entertaining. You may even access your Facebook page, Twitter accounts and other social media networks.
What is Mail?
Sending and receiving mail through the iPad is also fast, easy and fun. You may flick through your mails when you browse your inbox. If you want to open the attachments, you can just tap the screen. If the letters or images are too small for you, of course you can pinch the screen to zoom. If you want to compose your own message or reply to one, the smart keyboard is at your disposal. It even has an autocorrect feature where spelling and grammar are corrected, and punctuations are inserted.
In using your iPad, managing your mail is easy. Here you may group your messages in any way you like. If you think there are mails that are more important than the others and deserve your immediate attention, iPad mail helps you set up a VIP list. This list will keep track of your urgent and important mail matters and it will also alert you when you receive one. If your mail has attached images, you can easily view them and save them on your Camera Roll. Other files such as PDF, iWork, and Microsoft Office files can be viewed in the iPad without any hassle.
Other awesome features are the iBooks, Photos, Maps, Siri, iMessages, and iMaps. But of course, it also comes with the basics – Calendar, Reminders, Contact, App Store, iTunes, Music, Videos, Camera, Photobooth, Notes, Clock, and Game Center.
Truly, iPad is one of the biggest breakthroughs for Apple. Technology and communications companies, like Skype, Viber, Google and RingCentral, will not just step back and let Apple hog all the opportunity to offer their communications services as well. Apple has yet to face some serious challenge that other big companies are cooking up. Meanwhile, the market is surely looking forward to these healthy competitions.
