Abstract

For those of you who have used an iPhone or iPod touch, you’ll already have some idea of how to interact with your iPad. However, because of the iPad’s large screen, you’ll find some subtle differences between the iPhone and your iPad. Never used an iPod touch or iPhone before? That’s OK too, because you are absolutely going to be blown away by the iPad’s Multi-Touch screen. The iPad responds to the language of your touch. Its vocabulary includes taps, drags, pinches, and flicks. With these actions, you control your iPad as easily as using a mouse to control your personal computer. And there’s a lot more to interaction than just drags and double-clicks. Your iPad offers Multi-Touch technology. That means it can recognize and respond to more than one touch at a time.
