It’s not necessary to close one app and then scroll through your apps to find the one you want. Just open the iPad’s multitasking tray by swiping upwards with four fingers or double-tapping the home button.

When making notes, it can be tediously slow inserting apostrophes and quotation marks until you discover that these things are available when you long-press the question mark/full stop key, or the exclamation mark/comma key.
