Invisible iPad Keys Make Split-Screen Typing Easier [iOS Tips] | Cult of Mac

Invisible iPad Keys Make Split-Screen Typing Easier [iOS Tips] | Cult of Mac | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"It turns out that the iPad has some magic, invisible keys. They sit at the ragged ends left over as the keyboard splits and shrinks to the sides of the screen for easy thumb typing. If you hit the space to the side of the T key, for example, iOS will spit out the letter Y, just as if it were still there. These phantom keys continue down both sides, letting you access Y,T,H,G,B and V across the void in the center."

This Wall Wart Adapter Adds iPad-Friendly USB Ports To Any Power Socket | Cult of Mac

This Wall Wart Adapter Adds iPad-Friendly USB Ports To Any Power Socket | Cult of Mac | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"Take a look at the RCA USB Wall Plate Charger, a gadget which does exactly what it says on the label.

The charger is simple, and all the better for it. Round back is a standard 3-prong plug, which mates with any grounded socket in your or anybody else’s home. On the front of the rather utilitarian-looking box is a pass-through three-pin socket and a pair of USB ports. One of these ports will supply 2.1 amps of juice to charge the thirsty iPad, or you can hook up two of any other USB-powered device."

A calculator we can actually use – wish Apple had included it on our iPads | iGo With My iPad | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"The iPad is missing a calculator like our iPhones come with. Just a basic calculator that you replace the little plastic one on the desk with. It would be nice to have a couple features of course… maybe a tape, editing past calculations and the ability to share. It would appear the folks at Shift had the same need with their Digits Calculator."
