    Do u mean even if ur not using them they drain battery just by being there? I have so many I don't use, but haven't deleted them..just in case I may want to

I DISCOVERED that all i have to do is press the home button twice to access those ipod buttons
    Why did u call the control buttons iPods? That's confusing. I access those video controls same way, by double pressing home button and sliding across til I see video controls. Then I think I just have to put ipad to sleep by turning off power button, but music should keep playing while we are both asleep,lol

    They didn't call them iPods, they called them iPod controls. They mean the music app controls (as well as other apps of course.)

    Apps that are closed (when you open a different app etc.) typically remain in memory in an inert state unless they are designed to run in the background.
    Those static apps do not cause an additional battery drain, but can take up valuable memory. "Deleting" them frees up available memory, but doesn't affect battery/charge life.

    I don't know much about memory storage, but thanks for telling me it doesn't affect battery, cuz I have to charge my ipad pretty often

    A good repair to a rubber tipped stylus.

    I use the standard rubber tipped stylus as shown in the photo attached. (I hope cos I have not tried attaching photos before).
    Soon enough the rubber tip breaks away.
    Don't throw the stylus away.
    Remove the remaining rubber and you should see a brass insert with a small hole in it.
    This hole is the perfect size to push half of a cotton bud.
    The end result is also shown.
    To make it work put a few drops of water on the bud. Every now and then add a couple more drops.
    The result is a slightly more accurate stylus that glides better than the original rubber tip.
    I use an old eye drop bottle to apply the water.

    Why would one need a stylus or an iPad ?

    Well, if you're going to be using a drawing app that requires precise strokes, for example, a style might be handy

    Yes, it helps.

    They also come in handy for apps like Penultimate, which is for taking hand written notes. It's still clumsier than a pen and paper, but better than a finger if hand writing or drawing is what the situation calls for.
