Put your pdfs into iBooks

You can fill your iBooks pdf bookshelf with any pdfs you may have on your computer.

I have a whole series of ebooks I’ve written which I store on my iPad to show clients and also to browse through so I can come up with ideas to improve them.

The iBooks app adds the black ringbinding to the left side of the cover which looks okay, but I’d prefer to be able to switch this off if I could!

My home screen

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.
