The first time you successfully make a remote connection on your iPad or iPhone, a Hints screen initially displays, which illustrates the various screen-control actions you can use during a Splashtop  Whiteboard session.  The functions of some of the gestures are different, depending on whether you are using the iPad or iPhone.  Both Hints screens are illustrated below.

On the iPad:


On the iPhone:


Unless otherwise noted, the list below describes both iPad and iPhone gestures.  On the iPhone, the behavior of some gestures is different, as notated below:

  • Tap:  Equivalent to left mouse click.
  • Tap-and-hold (long press):  Equivalent to right mouse click.
  • One-finger drag:
    • On the iPad, the one-finger tap-and-drag gesture can be used to select text, or to drag the scroll bar.
    • On the iPhone, the one-finger tap-and-drag can be used to move files by dragging-and-dropping the desired files; or for operating the scroll bars.
  • Two-finger tap:  Equivalent to hovering the mouse over the tapped area ("mouse-over").
  • Two-finger drag:  Scrolls the active window.
  • Two-finger pinch-zoom:  Zooms in and out.
  • Two-finger pinch-and-drag:   On the iPad, scrolls (pans) the entire screen.  For example, if the keyboard is open, this would allow you to view what is blocked by the keyboard.  On the iPhone, panning can be done via one-finger drag.

By default, the Hints screen appears every time you start a remote connection.  Tapping Continue closes the screen and lets you continue with your remote connection.  However, the Hints screen will still display again the next time you initiate a remote connection.
