iPad Hacks and Hidden Features You Must Try
Are you making the most of your iPad? With these tips, you will save time, save batteries and most of all, save your sanity! From getting Siri to really listen to syncing your podcast across devices, these are our favorite under-appreciated iPad and iPhone tricks.
Get Siri to Really Listen
iOS 8 has provided the iPad with a number of great enhancements, including the ability to summon personal assistant Siri with just the voice command: "Hey Siri." The only snag is that you need to have your iPad connected to a power source when you use this feature. Luckily, there is a workaround: just make sure the Siri interface is visible (and the autolock is off) and you should be able to ask Siri questions while driving a car or baking bread.
Sync Your Podcasts Across Devices
Maybe you have favorite podcasts that you like to listen to, but you can't always remember where you left off. You can sync your podcast subscriptions, stations, and playback position between your iOS devices, computers with iTunes, and Apple TV.
Get Free Ebooks
You can read anything on your iPad that's in the ePub format, and on Project Gutenberg offers 46,000 free ebooks, including many of the great classics.
Take Customer Service on the Go
Ready to offer your customers better service options via technology? While you should already be using social media to proactively address your customers' needs, there are also several customer service platforms that allow you to quickly and easily provide customer service via the web.
Get More Productive
Are you still writing your "to-do" list on the back of a coffee-stained envelope? In this age of technology, there's no need to!
TeuxDeux and Remember the Milk are two apps that make slaying your to-do list a breeze, and both were designed especially for entrepreneurs, by entrepreneurs!
Never Lose Your iPad
The "find my phone" feature is a godsend to many iPad users. But did you know that you can set your iPad to send its last location to Apple in the case of battery failure? Great news for when your iPad gets lost behind the couch! Just open "Settings," access iCloud/Find my iPad and enable "send the last location."
