Navigating iBooks on the iPad – Tap to Flip Pages and Setting Page Flip Preferences


Looking Forward

Some applications have their own unique preference settings. One of these is iBooks. Flipping pages in iBooks is easy. You tap the left margin to go back a page or tap the right margin to go forward a page. No need to swipe to change pages. If you think about it, most of the time you progress forward through a book. That means your right thumb gets a workout while your left thumb gets lazy. You can set iBooks to flip the page forward no matter what edge you tap. If you need to go back a page, you can still swipe.
