Has anyone found a better way to close a book you opened in Paper?
After turn pages, and trying to close the book so I can pick another, the only thing that has worked was closing the app, double-clicking the home button, holding the apps until I can remove it from the taskbar and then launching the app again.
Not very intuitive. Other than that me and the wife like it.
But I still prefer sketchbook.
You pinch the page and it collapses into itself.
Thanks. they should have made some indicatation in the UI for that. I noticed in the video, he used 2 fingers to make the pages appear again, and I guessed at doing it a second time would close the book and it worked. Thanks!
Amazon just sent an email today that my 602's have now shipped. Hoepfully they arrive soon and I will come back and comment on my perception of performance.
The Photos app works the same way. You un-pinch to open an album and pinch to close it. On the Mac you use a 4 finger gesture pinch to open Launch Pad, and the opposite, four fingers from the center expanding outward to close it. Apple and their apps have been moving towards a gesture based approach for a while now. Once you get used it you'll find it is incredibly efficient to work this way. It's a small, but growing, language onto itself.
As promised, I received my styli today and will give my opinion on them. I notice to types of delays in using it, but it depends on a couple things.
Here is my situation. I am actually still using my iPad in the plastic wrapping it comes it and I also have it in a case. I will remove that plastic once I receive my Zagg Max.
As stated in a couple of videos I watched, fancy screen covers will cause some delay when using a stylus. In some cases the screen didn't register my contact at all, but i think this is based on user error, because I change some setting when I pressed down and held the pen in place and the crosshairs appeared and after that it didn't register any strokes. But before that it did with a lil delay. However, that delay was no different than the delay I see when I use my finger to draw the same stroke.
I removed the iPad from the plastic and used it on the naked screen. The reaction was certainly faster, but you can still see it isn't instant. This seems to be natural. If you look at Microsoft video in their reseacrh on trying to remove the delay on touchscreens, you can see that the iPad simply just has a natural delay just based on the screen type.
On the 3rd try, I made sure I close any applications from the taskbar and then tried drawing. At the time I had 7 apps in thr tray. Once I closed them I notice it appeared to be slightly more responsive to the screen. But it was a very marginal difference.
Based on my observation fo the video and now me using it, it was exactly what i saw in the video. The pen is within 1 pixel of being 100% accurate. What I notice is when I draw to lines and I tried starting from the point where I left off, by using another color I coudl see it was off my a single pixel. I feel this is exceptible because the iPad screen isn't designed to be as accurate as let's say the Galaxy Note which screen is specifically designed for the task of using a stylus.
I love the 360 degree angle ability of this design of the type unlike the O-Stylus which blocks your view. For 18.95 that I paid, I think it is a much better option than some fancier crappy stylus that has a fancy look just for the sake of fancy.
In my opinion I think you will be happy with the 602 model. So far I am. Right now, I am going to use it to draw a floor plan just to give it a real workout. I already drew part fo the plan in SB for Windows. I just need to add some extra captions to the drawing and will use my iPad.
So far the pen is working as I expected it too. I think you should try it. I typically don't follow everyone view of a product. I rather buy and test myself and if I dont like it, there is an option to return it as always. So there is never a lose in most cases.
