Installing an LCD Screen Protector for Your iPad

ipad and lcd protectorSo you finally have the iPad you have been dying as ever to have. You just can’t help but stare back at the reflection your iPad bounces back as it gives you all giddy ups inside. You even get to flaunt your oh so cool iPad with your friends every time you get the chance because you are so proud of it. Then one day, as you stare back at the screen again as you usually do, you notice a small scratch on the screen, and yikes! Of all iPad accessories how could you forget to buy an LCD screen protector? See, it’s not yet too late. You could still see clearly the big picture on the screen even if there’s a little scuff. And not to worry again since you can still protect the entire screen even if it has a tad scuff already. You just have to buy a few things so you could protect your screen from further scratches. Here are the things that you will need:

  • The iPad itself
  • Dust Destroyer (optional)—good for getting rid of dust.
  • Soft cloth (comes in package of LCD protector)
  • LCD screen Protector
  • Apple’s iPad Box Cover—will definitely be useful to have your screen be bubble-free.

Now that you have gathered all the things that you will need, here are the steps on installing it bubble-free:

Step 1: Clean and remove any dust or dirt on your screen. You can spray first the Dust Destroyer if available, and then you can wipe it all off with the soft cloth that comes with the package as you buy a screen protector.

Step 2: Now, peel back the label marked number 1 of the screen protector. Be careful not to touch the adhesive side of the protector’s surface so it stays clean and fingerprint-free.

Step 3: After peeling off a small portion of the film attached to Tab 1, flip it over and align the film to the corner of your screen. To hold it in place, use one hand to align the protector to the iPad and the other hand to hold the folded film on the bottom.

Step 4: If there are some air bubbles, just lift up the film a little and use your finger to smudge out the bubbles. Do it repeatedly if necessary, or you can just rub the bubbles off lightly with your fingers.

Step 5: Pull the film from underneath the protector until 2 inches of the protector is on the iPad and here is how the Apple’s iPad Box Cover gets useful. Hold the box with one hand as your other hand grabs the film under the protector. As you pull the film, gently slide the box across the iPad to prevent air bubbles from forming.

Step 6: Peel the label marked number 2. And there you have it, a bubble-free iPad screen. You won’t need to spend hours getting rid of air bubbles with a card now.

Have fun gazing again on your screen, worry-free!

iPad Air Tips and Tricks You Shouldn’t Miss

How much penny have you spent just to let the wind blow that pristine iPad Air into your hands? My point with asking that is this ingenious device is outright expensive to start with. And this almost paper thin gadget would definitely blow one’s mind not only with its lightness, but also with its features.

So, to make sure that your money is well spent, either by means of buying an iPad Air or buying iPad Air accessories, try out these tips and tricks for your tablet to make the most out of it:

#1: A swift way to delete a text

Have you ever been in a situation where you are fumbling for the right words to say, and suddenly it hits you that you shouldn’t say those things? So, what do you do now? Keep tapping the backspace in order to delete the evidence. Too much work, right? Good thing iPad Air has now an inclusion of a feature that lets you delete the whole text just by shaking your iPad and toggling the option Undo Typing. But what if you changed your mind and thought that you really intend to send it? Don’t shake your head yet, just shake the iPad and it will prompt a Redo Typing option.

#2:  Splitting the virtual keyboard

Aside from the new tricks of iOS 7 with its keyboard, did you know that you can actually split the keyboard in two with your iPad Air? Considering how wide tablets are, you’ll definitely have hard times in typing especially if you are used to typing words and phrases with your thumbs on your gadgets with touch interface technology. To do this trick, just tap and hold the keyboard icon on the left bottom, and once the options popped-up, hold it still and drag your finger to Split option. That will do the trick. But if you want to get the keyboard back again, tap and hold the keyboard icon once more and select Dock and Merge from the popped-up menu.

#3: Creating Keyboard Shortcuts

 Say like, you’ve been typing and typing a long word over and over and over. Perhaps you are sending a report or something. You know possibilities. And you know that typing and typing the word every time is taking up your time. Good thing, iPad Air offers a feature that creates a keyboard shortcut to a word or phrase even. To be able for you to do this trick, go to: Settings > General > Keyboard > Add New Shortcut … and from there, you can create a shortcut for any phrase to your liking. It’s a real time saver indeed, right?

#4: Instigate multitasking

With the specs iPad Air offers, it can do pretty much a lot of things. And it sure can pretty much do them all at once. So, if you are trying to do a multi-task, just press the Home button twice, then a Multitasking tray will pop up at the bottom of your screen. You’ll notice the recently used apps on the screen. You can tap them to launch them once more, or close them by swiping straight up. You can also close them altogether by placing your fingers on top of each app and swipe them straight up.

So, these are the few tips and tricks that are definitely worth a try. You’ll definitely be going to need them so might as well take note of them.
