Safari


What and Why:

While there are other iPad browsers, Safari is built-in to the iPad and the default browser. I recommend you begin with it and if it won't meet your needs, then try another browser (some even "support" Flash.) New to Safari with iOS 5 are tabs and Add to Reading List.

Activity:

  1. Try using multiple tabs with the plus symbol on the far right of the screen. Rearrange tabs. Try this site for the iPad Conference Schedule
  2. Go to a website and Save it to your Bookmarks or to your Bookmarks Bar (shorten the name.)
  3. Save a site to your your Home Screen.
  4. Go to a website or article you'd like to read later (http://socialmediaforschools.wikispaces.com) and choose to "Add to Reading List" Under the Bookmarks icon, find the Reading List and return to the document.
