Curt's iPad Tip of the Week

Viewing iPad in Dark Without Disturbing Others

Do you enjoy reading or viewing your iPad in the dark but find the bright background disturbs others and blinds you while reading in bed?  Let's invert the colors and make the iPad easier on your ecurt levineyes.

 Starting from the home page, tap Settings>General>Accessibility> and look for "Invert Colors".

Tap the Toggle switch to on.  Your iPad now is great when viewing in the dark.  Remember to repeat the steps to Toggle it Off for normal viewing.

You can also set up you iPad to switch back and forth between "Normal" and "Inverted Colors" by triple clicking the home button.  Simply scroll down to the bottom of the "Accessiblity" page and Tap on "Accessiblity Shortcut" and tap "Invert Colors".  You will see a check mark when selected.  Now when you want to flip from daytime to nightime viewing, it is a triple click away!

No longer will you see those pesky white rectangles when you look away into the darkness. Aaaah-smiles... 

Curt Levine is one of two volunteers that teach iPad classes at the library. Each week he will write a tip about the many wonders of the iPad.

 If you have a question for Curt, contact him via the library facebook page  https://www.facebook.com/ThePublicLibraryatTellicoVillage  or  send him an email at tvlibrary.org@gmail.com
