hello to all.
i have had an ipad (1st generation) for nearly two years and love it. recently it has begun to get a bit slow and certain favorite applications crash rather frequently (especially embedded videos on zite for example). i'm told that this is because the newer updates for my applications are too taxing for the older processor. something about increased graphics...
i'm guessing there's no going back to the older app versions (even though their updating was optional) and i've since ceased updating anything ( i'm even on OS 4.35-- i never went to 5 because i read about battery issues and later when i tried synching to my pc it also halted) and it's just as well because there are apps that require 5.0 and IOS that i would like to have
HOWEVER, and herein are my questions: i would like to divide my applications; repurposing my original ipad for certain rudimentary apps (dictionary, note taking, etc.) and use it next to my pc as a handy near-my-desktop device while migrating my other more complex apps (talkatone, zite, anything video etc) to a newer ipad, either new or used (an ipad 2 for example). Can I do that? Essentially I will have two independent devices with separate (or the same?) id or screen names on both. And can I run apps on both that are the same (ie. could i use the more complex apps that i purchased, Garage Band, Brushes, Words with Friends) on either machine, whichever handy, or even just WWF since the game is "in the cloud" note, wwf is one of the apps that crashes a lot, so i probably wouldn't want to have it on both anyway, i'm just asking if it's possible-- isn't there something about running things on 5 devices)? AND MOST IMPORTANT, can i move my talkatone phone number to the newer ipad, or even keep it on both?
NOTE: if this is too difficult/impossible, i would be fine moving everything to the newer machine, but i'd like to keep all my settings/data etc. then i could always reset the first one as a blank/fresh machine for the simple functions i mentioned earlier.)
