How to set-up two step verification for your Apple ID on your iPad

2-Step ID 03-30-15, 8.39.47 PMCyber security is an ever increasing challenge that we face on a daily basis with growing concern. Not a week goes by that when we don’t hear about a new hack, or virus, or commercial security breach that exposes are most important personal data. Data that criminals use to steal from us for there own selfish gains. We might never ever truly be completely safe and secure. However, there are steps that we can take to, at the very least, make our own data harder to obtain.

One of the steps we can take is two implement two-step verification of our Apple ID. We use our Apple ID to sign into iCloud and the App Store and the Mac App store, so by taking this extra step we can provide added security to the majority of the Apple services we use most often. Two-step verification is achieved by entering our password to verify our account on one of our additional Apple devices. Now, even if someone has your password, they would still need to go through the extra step up verifying your identity on one of your other known devices.

iPad Art: A Portrayal of Their Love

iPad painting a Portrayal of Their Love

Our featured iPad painting this weekend is titled ‘A Portrayal of Their Love’. It’s the work of Woon Tien David Chong – and here is his brief description of his iPad finger painting:

A portrayal of their love.” An original iPad finger painting of Mr and Mrs Lee done with Procreate app. A tribute to the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew, the founder of Singapore, and forever a source of inspiration to Singaporeans.

I like that this iPad painting feels full of love and happiness.

I’m ashamed to say I had not even heard of Lee Kuan Yew before seeing this painting. A quick read of just his Wikipedia page has taught me that he was a hugely impressive man. And that just makes this piece even more compelling.

To see more of Woon Tien David Chong’s excellent iPad paintings, check out his Facebook art page.

And of course if you’d like to see lots more beautiful iPad paintings from a number of superb iPad artists, then you need to take a look at our own iPad Art section.

How to configure each of your app’s settings on your iPad at the same time

Settings-App

With iOS 8 we have more control over the settings of our apps then ever before.  Sometimes individual app settings are easy to find, and sometimes they are buried deep within the app, several layers in.  To find what you’re looking for, it could take you several tries, no to mention the time you spend researching on the internet.  It doesn’t have t be this way–not anymore.  Apple has actually made it rather simple to adjust settings for each app all in one place.

Start by opening the Settings App.  As you scroll down the side-bar menu on the left side of the page, you will eventually se a running list of all of your installed apps.  Opening/selecting any one of your apps from the side-bar will display all the settings that you can interact with and adjust.  Not all of your apps are going to display the same settings.  That’s because not all apps are capable of providing the same services.  As a result, there will be a wide variety of changes that you can make to each app.

iPad App of the Week: Afterlight

 Who doesn’t like great iPad apps? At iPad Insight we definitely do. With that in mind, we offer up a quick review of an excellent iPad app, or a few great iPad apps, here each week.

Our weekly picks for Best iPad App of the Week are published here every Saturday. Check out all out picks below and you’ll soon have a collection of stellar apps for your favorite tablet.

This week’s pick is Afterlight…although I’m not really talking about the base app, but isn’t actually the app per se, but its excellent extension. Afterlight fulfills the promise of iOS 8 for me: the ability to use the Photos app for photo management, viewing, and editing.

The Benefits Of Reading List On My iPad

   I used to be a really loyal Instapaper user because I loved the reading experience inside of the app. I still do,  and it’s still great, but I find myself slowly preferring Safari’s Reading List more. If you’re not familiar with Instapaper, it’s a read-later service for storing articles (like this one) for reading […]
