How to Use Multi-Touch Gestures on your iPhone, iPod and iPad


Tomorrow, after all of the presents have been unwrapped and you’re snuggling on the sofa with your new iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad, you might have many questions, especially if you’re new to Apple’s wonderful touchscreen devices. If you’ve never used any type of touchscreen device, you are delving into a whole new world, and we know you’re going to love it as much as we do. In any case, there are many touchscreen gestures that you will see referenced in the apps that you download and in the instructions for your device. Here are some of the basic gestures that we thought would help get you started:

There are so many things that you can do with these devices, that they can't all be included in one blog post. You might want to check out previous posts like, How to Save an Image or How to Change the Wallpaper. These two can be used together so that you can save an image and use it as wallpaper on your device.

There are more posts like this to come, and here you'll find a roundup of all our guides, app tips and tutorials. You can also sign-up to be a member of Club Marmalade Moon to be one of the first to be notified on the latest blog posts and courses.

Happy Holidays to you all!

A Pocket of Creative Time at the Airport


Sometimes it Goes Quiet

You know that feeling you get when you've got young children, and suddenly you realise that it's been quiet, way too quiet and far too long. They're up to something...

Well, it's like that here at Marmalade Moon too. When it's been quiet a while, no blog posts, not even any responses to comments, then I've been really busy.

On the Go

  • Helping to host the first Northern Light art & illustration workshop.
  • Designing an album cover.
  • Tinkering with the layout of the Marmalade Moon website and making new illustrations and graphics for it. The layout is going to be responsive, so that it looks great both on a desktop computer and on mobile devices.
  • Writing the first free course to spark your creativity, for members of Club Marmalade Moon
  • Looking for a replacement for Instagram (to solve the Facegram = Facepalm situation).

My Pocket of Creative Time

Standing at the air port, waiting for one of the teachers for the Northern Light workshop to arrive, I noticed an exhibition of Scandinavian Airlines aviation history and snapped a few photos.

Have you had any unexpected pockets of creative time recently?
