The Magic iPad Double Finger Scroll

I love my iPad but just sometimes it seems buggy or non-intuitive.

Two sites I use regularly use styling to reduce the visible area of a table and display a scroll bar to the side to access all rows.

On the iPad, however, the scroll bar isn’t visible. This resulted in frustration as I found the benefit of using the iPad while mobile reduced.

A little investigation online showed me a solution – interaction with these scrollable tables is through a two finger scroll.

Simple, effective, quirky and quite probably mentioned in the user guide.

The WordPress iPad App

Some times you just have to spend a few minutes exploring the technology you have at your finger tips. There are so many emerging technologies, gadgets and gizmos available that it can be a little overwhelming. But have you made the most of the gadgets that you already have.

If you have an iPad like I have, it is highly unlikely that you are using this to its full potential. Some times a few minutes exploring the app store or Top 10 app lists will find you a gem.

As you’ve probably guessed that’s pretty much what I’ve been doing for the last 10 minutes as a break from work.

And I’ve found an array of apps that look useful, funny or simply intriguing, including the WordPress app. This will surely make it easier for me to post in my spare time. From what I’ve seen so far this should be in regular use. Time will tell.
