Hi all. Got my iPad a couple weeks ago with the intention of using it for school - especially to take notes. The note taking works great - I use upad - but I'm now having issues with other things. My college uses ANGEL as an online utility to send email to classmates and students (you can only send email within the school network using the utility and only to people in your classes) as well as for accessing assignments that we can print off and videos for class. I also have an online class using the ANGEL utility where I have to participate in "discussion boards" - which are similar to posting on a forum. The safari browser on the iPad can't post to the discussion board and I can't watch the videos because they're flash based - though there is a link to "watch this video in Windows Media Player".
I've tried all the free and lite browsers that supposedly allow the user to watch flash videos just to test the waters (I'm assuming by converting to HTML 5 or something?) and none of them work with my school's ANGEL utility. Therefore, I'm a little leery of paying for an app unless I know that it will work. I also have wyse pocketcloud to access my pc remotely, but even when I'm on the same network as my pc, the video comes in really choppy and the audio doesn't match up. To clarify, I can log into the ANGEL utility and do most things, just can't post or watch video. I've also tried the "mobile" version of the site but still can't post or watch video. To see the ANGEL utility to get an idea of what I'm talking about, visit: http://sail.iwcc.edu. You won't be able to log in, but at least you'll see the site and maybe understand what I'm talking about.
I'm just not sure which way I should go - a browser app that allows flash or an RDP to access my pc remotely. I need to be able to post on discussion boards as well as watch video - I don't really care how it's done, just as long as it works and works WELL. I don't mind paying for an app, as long as it works, and I'd prefer if it didn't have a monthly subscription - I would much rather pay a one-time fee.
Thanks for any help/advice!
