    As I had so many apps open, I thought it would be quicker to just turn my ipad2 off. Unfortunately that did not close the apps. They were still open when I restarted it. Strange?

    No. That's just the way iOS works. The multitask bar is supposed to be a quick way of accessing recently used apps.

    It can be a pain but you get used to it. We'll get the changes with IOS 6. Patience is a virtue!

    Of course.....make sure you have the latest iTunes available on your PC and do a complete backup of your iPad first. It's also a good idea to disable your virus protection/firewall for the duration of the update. This update will be a very large one and will take quite a bit of time and is all dependent on what you have on your iPad.
    When it's all finished you will be updated to OS 5.1.1

    I'll include a visual link below to guide you through it.

    External Keyboard Layout Tip {;–)

    Hey !

    You actually might wanna try on your external keyboard the following:

    Alt/Option + 3​

    This works for me, my keyboard coding is: US International - PC

    As long as it's set as US International - PC, this should lead to that.

    I have a Targus branded Case&Keyboard, and here's what each row looks like, in normal, then w/shift, then w/Alt-Option:


    ` 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 -
    ~ ! @ # $ % ^ & * ( ) _
    ` ¡ ™ £ ¢ ∞ § ¶ • ª º –


    q w e r t y u i o p = \
    Q W E R T Y U I O P + |
    œ ∑ ´ ® † Â¥ ¨ ^ ø π ≠ «


    a s d f g h j k l '
    A S D F G H J K L "
    Ã¥ ß ∂ ƒ © ˙ ∆ ˚ ¬ æ


    z x c v b n m , .
    Z X C V B N M < >
    Ω ≈ ç √ ∫ ~ µ ≤ ≥



    Again, please note that this is true only IF your keyboard layout is set to US International - PC, which you can configure in goto://Settings>General>Keyboards>InternationalKeyboards>Select-your-keyboard>Choose-your-layout.edu :rolleyes:


    I have no clue about British International, might fit you better as well, give it a try :)


    Hope this helps,

    ;)

    Tips and Tricks - Just for Fun - Change the Behavior of the Display of Ipad3

    If you run Itune in your PC, choose your device and select "configure universal access" option in the summary menu, you can change your Ipad to display "white on black". This will change the color of everything shown on screen by the device including movies. It's like turning Sepia tone.

    I can't find in the device itself on how to do this.

    On iPad, Settings > General > Accessibility > Triple-click Home

    You can set that so that if you triple-click your Home button, you can turn on reverse screen (white on black).
