    Speed up your typing: Double-tapping the spacebar while typing a message will type a period and then a space.

    Make your passcode more secure: iOS defaults to a four-number passcode, but you can turn it off by going to Settings, General, Passcode Lock, Simple Passcode. Now you can use any full keyboard password to lock the iPad. The password also helps to encrypt your mail and attachments on the iPad, so you probably want to make it safer than a four-digit number.

    Set the iPad to Erase Data: You can set the iPad to erase all data after ten failed passcode entry attempts by checking the Erase Data option under Settings, General, Passcode Lock.

    Show traffic conditions: Open Maps, press the dog-eared page icon in the lower right, and then turn the Traffic overlay on. If your iPad has an Internet connection, Maps will show real-time traffic conditions in the displayed area. Green means traffic is going at the posted speed limit, yellow means traffic is slower than the posted speed limit, and red means traffic is stop-and-go.

    Take a screenshot: Press Home and the sleep/wake button simultaneously. The screenshot will automatically appear among your photos.
    Hi I tried this but my traffic button is greyed out. How do I get it on?

    A mistake is simply another way of doing things.

    IPF = iPadForums

    In other words, it's this forum.

    Waiting for that “Next Thing” means you’d never buy anything.

    When you open your mail and tap the inbox tab on the top left, if you swipe your finger to the right on a mail you want to delete it gives you the option to delete. Found this one by mistake, but very cool.
