Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Taking advantage of iPad-specific gestures, part of iPad Tips and Tricks.
- The iPad, like the iPhone and iPad Touch,…runs Apple's iOS operating system, which is…a touch-based operating system, and is controlled…and manipulated by tapping the screen or using…one or more fingers to perform what are called "gestures".…You probably already know the most basic ones,…but just for example, I'm here on the iPad…section of Apple's website here in the Safari…web browser on my iPad.…The most basic action is the tap.…You tap items like buttons, links and so on…by touching them on-screen briefly and then…lifting your finger, which selects them.…Another basic gesture is the swipe.…
Place your finger on the screen and move it…up or down to scroll on a page.…Make small, slow swipes to scroll slowly…or make long, fast ones to scroll quickly.…This also works when you need to swipe horizontally.…Another common gesture is the pinch.…Touch the screen with two fingers and move them apart…to zoom in on the screen, and pinch inwards…to zoom back out.…In most applications, when you're zoomed in, you can…double-tap the screen to zoom back out.…
