People still force quitting iOS apps

IT Help

A number of pupils have come by with problems on their iPads which seem to have been caused by force quitting apps. Some claim that their teachers instructed them to do so. If this is the case, please refrain from telling them to force quit as it slows down the iPad, uses more battery, and can damage files and the operating system.

Free ebooks

IT Help

You’ve probably heard of Project Gutenberg, an idea that has turned over 54,000 books whose copyrights have expired into freely downloadable ebooks. But they aren’t formatted as well as most ebooks you’d pay for, and issues with justification, odd spaces and inconsistent typography can detract from your reading pleasure.


IT Help

Sending large photographs via email will quickly clog up user's email boxes, as well as your own.

WeTransfer allows you to send up to 2GB of photographs effortlessly. It's pre-installed on school iPads.

Image Resizer

IT Help

As you know, the Noticeboard has a size limit of 800 pixels for photographs.

Unfortunately, the Photos app on the iPad does not have a provision for resizing. To allow users to upload photos at the right size, every iPad has now been sent a small app that will allow you to resize.
