A little trick about how to "force quit" Apps are software, too, and sometimes software gets stuck (just ask anyone who’s used a computer for more than a month). To make a cranky app shut down without having to restart the whole iPad, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button down until you see the red “power-off“ slider—but don’t slide this time. Instead, press and hold the Home button down until the app quits and you find yourself back on the Home screen.

These 5 "amazing tips" are brought to you by http://screamable.com/5-amazing-ipad-tips-and-tricks.html

1. Instantly go to the top

There are many pages which are long enough for you to scroll back. So, there is a very simple way to go to the top, just tap the status bar, and you are at the top of the page.

 

2. Instant mute

This is a very useful trick as it is normally used urgently, and doing it by its traditional way of lowering the volume click-after-click , may take some time, which is very irritating at many times. So, a much better way would be to hold the volume down button and it would take 2 seconds to mute.

 

3. Screen Shots

Do you know you can take screen shots in your ipad too?  Don’t underestimate your ipad. It can do these things with ease. There is a simple way to do so, just press your power and home button simultaneously for about half a second, and you know what, your screen shot is stored in your photo library, as simple as that.

 

4. Enlarge your bottom tray

You must have seen that your ipad stores 4 apps in the bottom tray by default, but in your ipad you can increase this size to 6. Just tap at an icon and hold it, by doing so you unlock that icon’s position.  Then you can drag it to your bottom tray.

 

5. Undo/redo

So apple people believe that by shaking, you want to either redo or undo your typing. I m not joking, that’s right. If you shake your ipad upwards or downwards, you will see a pop up, to undo typing or redo typing.
