Keep Up with your Favorite Sites on the Go
If you’ve got an Internet-based business, I bet you’re spending most of your working time online – probably in front of a desktop computer. This is understandable for many tasks, but it gets frustrating when you’re feeling stuck at your desk unnecessarily. As mentioned previously, one of the biggest advantages of the iPad is its portability to take your business on the go.
There are certain tasks that are easy to do on your iPad while others are more difficult. For instance, you may decide you don’t want to code an entire website on your iPad (and who would), but you can’t argue that it’s the perfect tool for catching up with your favorite business blogs and websites. No longer will you have to waste those random ten minutes here and there in line at the post office or at the doctor’s waiting room. Instead you can use the time to catch up on your reading!
So here are some quick and easy ways to optimize your iPad for easy Internet surfing. My two favorites are bookmarks and RSS feeds. Here’s what you need to know about bookmarks.
Bookmarks. Just like on your computer, you can save often-frequented websites for quick retrieval. You don’t have to type in your horrendously long WordPress dashboard URL. Just add it once, then use the bookmark function to save it for the future.
- Click on the Safari icon from your main iPad page.
- Open and view the webpage that you’d like to bookmark in Safari.
- Tap the Plus (“+”) icon at the top of the page.
A drop-down menu will appear and ask if you want to add a bookmark, add the site to your home screen, or mail the link to that page. Follow the prompts to save your URL for future visits. (Bonus: You can sync your bookmarks with your computer Internet browser.)
