Here is a screen dump of my home screen.
If you don’t know, you can take a ‘photo’ of any screen on your iPad by holding down the Power and Home buttons.
The background shot is of my youngest son (I have 2 boys).
I used ColorSplash for iPad to turn the colour photo into black and white, then I ‘painted’ back in the colour of the toy cars at the bottom of the screen.
It’s a pure fluke that the first 8 apps all have blue in them! (Or I think it is!)
I’ll post info about all of these in due course in separate posts.
Oh yes: you’ll see that I have 6 icons on the Dock at the bottom of the screen: there are only 4 there on a brand new iPad. To get 2 more there, simply tap on any icon and hold until the icons start to wiggle and an X appears in the corner of each one. Then just drag an icon onto the Dock. Press the Home button to get out of ‘wiggle/move/delete app’ mode.
