IPad problems

I love to use my IPad but if my finger so much as drifts off a mm, I find I have clicked on adverts I don't want, Dating sites I definitely don't want and websites I have never heard of.

AA Route Planner is one of the worst because when I have put in the postcodes of where I am coming from to where I am going, I then miss the search button and accidentally bring up another site that is put strategically close to catch me out. Try it and see what I mean

I've just tried AA route planner again and there are the words Click Here just below the Search button and this sends me off in the direction of Getting a £25.00 voucher which I don't want. hmm

Get a stylus. We buy packs of ten for about £3. I never use my finger now!

Where do you buy the stylus please Mamie? Sounds like a good idea. I'm not too bad on the iPad but I do have fat finger syndrome when using the smartphone. Texts are full of spelling mistakes, not that anyone cares these days.

We buy them from Amazon. They are called Mavis's Diary. hmm
They make life much easier, especially when you have a Candy Crush habit like mine
