Which apps are running? A good number of iPad apps are able to run seemingly in the background at the same time that you are otherwise engaged. If you want to know which apps are currently active, all you need to do quickly tap the home button two times in succession. A bar shows up near the bottom of the screen that will list currently active apps. To eliminate this feature, simply swipe down and you will be back to the normal setting.

When you get your iPad it is set to only show the first two lines of any given message in the preview mode. This can often help to see content before opening the email. Head to “settings” and hit “mail.” Go to Mail, Contacts, and Calendar to adjust Preview Mail Options to add more lines.
