tech-tricksYou may have bought a new iPad this year and you are just getting used to the iOS software. But did you know there are ways to get around without using the home button?


Here are a few quick tips to keep in mind when using the touch screen:

  • To get rid of an app and get back to the home screen, just use all four fingers and drag them towards the inside of the screen.
  • To open the app tray, move all four fingers in an upwards direction. You can do the same to get rid of the tray.
  • To move between apps, use all four fingers to sweep apps both left and right.

It may seem strange at first, but this is an easy way to get around without having to press the home button every time.
