    Well, here are some iPad 4 keyboard secrets for those who just got one:



    Yeah, it looks like very simple, but you would be surprised at the number of people who didn't know about it. Especially those secret hidden characters.

    I am willing to bet you at least 75% don't know those secrets because they are not even in any manual.

    Even the camera has some nice surprises:

    Lols this is simple stuff. I dont even have an ipad and i know this. But, this is good for beginners, not a secret though because these so called secrets are easy once you play around with the os.

    I don't believe you. How can you know about twisting photos? People probably know about rotating screen, not twisting. Also, I bet you didn't know about 4 fingers task manager or quit app...

    Like i said as you play with the os you learn it. Dont be so defensive. And yes i know about the 4 finger gesture and the close gesture as well as the 4 finger multitasking.

    My 4 year old had it figured out 30 seconds into viewing pics in the photo app :)

    The video is tailored for new owners. But admit it, you learned at least one new thing. Let me guess, four finger task manager.

    Honestly, I didn't learn one new thing. This video would be good for an 80 year old who's never touched a computer before.

    This is all quite simple stuff. In fact, the twisting of photos was one of the things Apple heavily advertised when the iPad was first introduced.

    Four finger swipe? I remember those articles on the Macrumors frontpage on how it was first on beta, than it was introduced, but only for iPad 2 (and not the first generation iPad) and than finally Apple added this functionality to the first generation iPad too.

    It's nice to find out about stuff like this if you didn't know about them, but for a lot of people these 'secrets' aren't secrets.

    I suppose this could come in handy for some people -- a few helpful tricks and tips for brand new iPad users. I can't even begin to count the amount of times that I've heard people, usually new users, complain about how the touch screen keyboard on the iPad lacks caps lock, or lack of an apostrophe on the main keyboard, etc.

    Dreadful video containing "secrets" from the iPad user guide/ easy to work out from playing around with for 15 mins. How can four finger multi tasking be a massive secret when there's a button explaining the gesture in the settings menu.
