Interacting with an iPad is more direct than interacting with many other electronic devices. For example, shaking it (like a salt shaker) is not only permitted, it’s expected! In this chapter, I walk you through basics like using the Home screen and making gestures (movements with your fingers). After that, I discuss many interface-related activities: typing, copying, multitasking, and more.
The Home screen has a series of pages that contain icons for your apps (Figure 35). If you are not on the Home screen, you go there by pressing the round Home button.
