    Hi,

    We are using Ipad2's as communication aides and would like the ipads we have to startup an app automatically when powered on.

    We have searched the web but cannot find any info.

    Is it possible?

    Thank in advance
    Andy

    Unfortunately, no, there is no way to start an app automatically when you turn on an iPad.

    However, if you leave the app running when you put the iPad to sleep, it will be still running when you go back to "wake" the iPad up. If you never close it out (by pressing the Home button), it will always be running after a sleep.

    Sorry, but that's the best that can be done.
