iPad -Use Dropbox

The article will provide a user with information on how to use dropbox.

If a user wants to use a dropbox then he/she has to follow the guidance as provided below:

In order to use a dropbox, a user has to download the software and setup an account..  A user can use the same email address and password on both the Mac and iPad to link both of them.

A user can move files from the Mac to the iPad.

If a user puts files or folders into the Mac’s Dropbox folder then he/she will notice them on the iPad.  IF the Dropbox is installed on multiple Macs or PC’s the files will be copied.  A user can tap a file to open it in Dropbox.  The program displays a number of file types.  These files include images, music and video files, Microsoft Office files, PDFs, iWork files and HTML and text files. 

Now a user can tap the Send icon in the toolbar if he/she wants to choose an application that can open the file.  For example, if a user has a Word file and want to view it in Pages then he/she can tap the file to view it with Dropbox and then tap the Send icon in the toolbar and then tap Pages.  Now the Dropbox will transfer the file to Pages and Pages will import it.

How to move files from iPad to the Mac?

If a user wants to move files or documents off of the iPad then he/she can use a similar method as mentioned above for iWork apps.  Alternatively a user can send the document by email.  Please note that the dropbox doesn’t sync files from the iPad to his/her Dropbox account. If the app a user is using to view the document works with File Sharing, as the iWork apps do, a user can copy it back to the Mac using iTunes.

Whichever way a user is using, exchaning files with iPad requires hard work but with the methods as mentioned above will help a user to move files to and from the iPad without any hard work.

iPad – sharing files between Mac and iPad

The article will provide a user with information and guidance on sharing files between Mac and iPad.
The article will cover how to get documents off of the Mac and onto the iPad, and then after a user has edited them or created new ones on the iPad how to get them onto the Mac.  A user can follow two ways to do this.

Use iTunes
For apps that use Apple’s File Sharing, such as Apple’s iWork programs,
• a user can use iTunes 9.1.1 as a conduit to get files on and off the iPad.
• When users iPad is connected to the Mac and iTunes is open, a user can then select the iPad in the iTunes Library and
• then click on iTunes’ Apps tab.
• Scroll down to the File Sharing section.
• A user will then see a list of apps that use File Sharing.
• Click on one and a user will see any files that he has already added to, or created on, the iPad.

Add and delete documents
Now a user can add documents to his/her iPad in two ways.
• Click the Add button, navigate to a document in the Open dialog box that appears, select the document, and then click Open.
• When a user clicks Sync, the file will copy to the iPad.
• Alternatively, a user can drag a file onto the File Sharing list when the appropriate app is selected in the Apps list.
• This method copies the files immediately; a user don’t need to click Sync for the copying to take place.
• To delete documents, selecting them in the file list and press Delete.

Import iWork documents
If a user is working with the iWork apps such as Pages, Numbers and Keynote just getting the document onto the iPad isn’t quite enough.
• A user will need to import the files before a user can view and edit them.
• In order to do this, for example in Pages,  a user has to open Pages on the iPad and tap the folder icon in the toolbar.
• A user will see a list of available documents.
• A user can now tap a document to import it.
• Now it’ll now show up in the My Documents list and a user can work with the file.

Avoid problems
Please note that iWork for iPad apps can’t import files with special characters in their titles, such as the forward-slash (/).  If a user wants to import files then he should
• remove any special characters from the file names before he/she tries to transfer the files.
• importing isn’t always a smooth process.  This is because not all fonts and document elements will come through.

Export iWork documents
After a user has done editing a document on the iPad,  a user should
• export it before he/she can move it onto the computer using iTunes.
• Tap My Documents (or My Presentations, or My Spreadsheets, depending on the app).
• Open the document and then tap the send icon.
• Tap Export, and
• then choose a file format.
• If a user has made changes to a document then he/she can import using iTunes,
• A user will view a dialog box asking if he/she wants to replace the original.
• A user should now tap Replace to do this.
• The app exports the file,
• and a user can now copy it from iTunes back to your Mac.
A user should note that other iPad apps may not require the import/export procedure.

Copy documents onto the Mac
If a user wants to copy documents from the iPad onto the Mac using File Sharing then he/she should:
• connect the iPad to the computer and open iTunes.
• Select the iPad in the iTunes Library and
• then click on iTunes’ Apps tab.
• Scroll down to the File Sharing section and
• select the appropriate app.
• Select the file in the list and click Save To.
• In the Open dialog box that appears, navigate to a folder where a user would like to save the file,
• and click Open. iTunes copies the file right away.
• A user can also click on a file in the documents list and drag it to a Finder window to copy it.

How to secure an iPad?

The article will provide information and guidance on securing an iPad.  A user can secure an iPad by looking at the following tips. 

Physical control
A user can keep an iPad secure by keeping it under physical control.  In this way, a user can have control over device and data access. In this way may security concerns can be avoided.

A user can use a passcode when taking the iPad out in public.  The passcode blocks unauthorised users from accessing the apps and information. However, the passcode only provides limited protection; it can be bypassed by users with long-term physical control of the device.

Limitations for passcode
There are various limitations for using passcode:
-If someone has prolonged control over a users iPad and access to a PC, they can connect to the iPad with a PC and remove the passcode.  This will allow them to log onto the device.
- another limitation of passcode is that an attacker can also bypass encryption on the iPad the same way.  Even if they don’t get access to the data, the attacker can reset the device, destroying users data and converting the device to their own use.
- As the keypad that a user uses to enter the passscode always appears in the same place on the screen, in this manner a pattern of fingerprints may be left in the screen.  This can lead to security risks.

Enable automatic data erasing
A user can configure the iPad to erase all user data on the device after 10 failed passcode attempts.  This all depends on how likely a user is going to exceed the 10 failed passcode attempts.

Restrict the capabilities of the iPad
A user can add additional controls that can allow a user to restrict certain functions on the device.  It is a good idea that a user can restrict Safari, YouTube, installing applications, and explicit media content.

Use a VPN
The iPad lets a user encrypt all the WiFi traffic using a Virtual Private Network (VPN) service.

Get MobileMe
A user has an opportunity to use get mobileme.  This is because Apple’s MobileMe service provides several tools for syncing, backing up and securing data, sound a tone andr dsplay a message on a lost iPad if a user has temporarily misplaced it.  In case iPAd is stone, a user can then access ,” MobileMe from a computer and can display the location of the device on a map in order to help find it. Another benefit or strength of using MobileMe is to keep information in sync across multiple devices, to share information through iDisk.
If the remote iPad is not connected via cellular or [Wi-Fi] network, it will not receive the remote wipe commands, so a determined attacker would likely take the iPad off the network before they worked on the system.  As an iPad supports Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync, so the remote wipe can be triggered via ActiveSync. MS Exchange ActiveSync. This can enforce additional controls and extended password policies.

Share with care
As an iPad is a single user devices so a user doesn’t have an opportunity to create multiple user accounts on the iPad.  In other words because of this limited aspect associated with iPad, a user cannot block access to information between accounts, everyone with access to the iPad has access to all the information on the device, including e-mail and browser and personal information. There is a way to protect privacy by disabling the option to autofill browser fields, and regularly clearing browser history, cookies and cache.  There is another way to encrypt infomration stored in the app.  This is done by using 1Password software. 

Software updates installation
In order to minimise seecurity risk, a user should ensure that the system is current and up to date.  The system should be connected to iTunes on a computer.  If a system doesn’t have iTunes available or has not been connected for some time then the system could miss a criticval update and therefore a risk will be there.

ipad – hardware aspects

The article will provide a user with advise and information on ipad.  It will cover hardware aspects.  Before we go any further it is good to have a brief look at ipad’s briefy history. 

History of ipad
Apple’s first tablet computer was the Newton MessagePad 100 introduced in 1993, which led to the creation of the ARM6 processor core with Acorn Computers. With the success of the introduction of portable music player iPod in 2001, Apple re-entered the mobile-computing market in 2007 with the iPhone. Smaller than the iPad but featuring a camera and mobile phone, it pioneered the multitouch finger-sensitive touchscreen interface of Apple’s mobile operating system—iOS.  The iPad was announced on January 27, 2010 and was developed before the iPhone.  Now, let’s have a look at the hardware.


The hardware includes screen and input, audio and output, connectivity , power and battery and storage and SIm

Screen and input

The iPad’s touchscreen display is a 25 cm (9.7 in) liquid crystal display (1024 × 768 pixels) with fingerprint-resistant and scratch-resistant glass. Like the iPhone, the iPad is designed to be controlled by bare fingers; normal gloves and styli that prevent electrical conductivity may not be used, although there are special gloves and styli designed for this use.
The display responds to two other sensors: an ambient light sensor to adjust screen brightness and a 3-axis accelerometer to sense iPad orientation and switch between portrait and landscape modes. Unlike the iPhone and iPod touch built-in applications, which work in three orientations (portrait, landscape-left and landscape-right), the iPad built-in applications support screen rotation in all four orientations (the three aforementioned ones along with upside-down), meaning that the device has no intrinsic native orientation; only the relative position of the home button changes.
The iPad has a switch to lock out the screen rotation function (reportedly to prevent unintended rotation when the user is lying down).  There are a total of four physical switches, including a home button below the display that returns the user to the main menu, and three plastic physical switches on the sides: wake/sleep and volume up/down, along with the screen rotation lock.

The iPad can use Wi-Fi network trilateration from Skyhook Wireless to provide location information to applications such as Google Maps. The 3G model contains A-GPS to allow its position to be calculated with GPS or relative to nearby cellphone towers; it also has a black plastic accent on the back side to improve 3G radio sensitivity.  For wired connectivity, the iPad has a dock connector; it lacks the Ethernet and USB ports of larger computers.

Audio and output

The iPad has two internal speakers that push mono sound through two small sealed channels to the three audio ports carved into the bottom-right of the unit.  A volume switch is on the right side of the unit.
A 3.5-mm TRS connector audio-out jack on the top-left corner of the device provides stereo sound for headphones with or without microphones and/or volume controls. The iPad also contains a microphone that can be used for voice recording.
The built-in Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR interface allows wireless headphones and keyboards to be used with the iPad. 

Power and battery

The iPad uses an internal rechargeable lithium-ion polymer battery. The batteries are made in Taiwan by Simplo Technology, which makes 60% of them, and Dynapack International Technology.  The iPad is designed to be charged with a high current (2 amperes) using the included USB 10 W power adapter. While it can be charged by a standard USB port from a computer, these are limited to 500 milliamperes (half an amp). As a result, if the iPad is turned on while being charged with a normal USB computer port, it will charge much more slowly, if at all.  Apple claims that the iPad’s battery can provide up to 10 hours of video, 140 hours of audio playback, or one month on standby. Like any battery technology, the iPad’s LiPo battery loses capacity over time, but is not designed to be user-replaceable. In a program similar to the battery-replacement program for the iPod and the original iPhone, Apple will replace an iPad that does not hold an electrical charge with a refurbished iPad for a fee.
Storage and SIM

The iPad was released with three options for internal storage size: a 16, 32, or 64 GB flash drive. All data is stored on the flash drive and there is no option to expand storage.  The side of the Wi-Fi + 3G model has a micro-SIM slot (not mini-SIM). Unlike the iPhone, which is usually sold locked to specific carriers, the 3G iPad is sold unlocked and can be used with any compatible GSM carrier. Japan is the exception to this, where the iPad 3G is locked to Softbank.
