any one know of an app than will switch between cellular covrage and wifi, on ipad2? thanks
If you go into the iPad's 'Settings' menu you can easily turn either WiFi or 3G on or off. I've not heard of an app that can do this but I would think it would almost be more trouble to fire up that app than to click Settings and choose.
Also, remember the iPad will *always* choose WiFi if both 3G and WiFi are available, if that's what was behind your question.
thanks for the reply, you wrote "Also, remember the iPad will *always* choose WiFi if both 3G and WiFi are available, if that's what was behind your question."
but when thyre both on, i see both of the icons on the top of the screen. how do i know which data is the pad using?
As Tim has just told you, if the wifi logo is there it will be using that over 3G.
It's in the iPad manual - it says that the iPad always uses WiFi if it's available. It shows the 3G symbol, but you'll see the WiFi signal fan and that's your assurance it's using WiFi. If there's no signal fan there then it's using 3G.
got it, thanks for the answer
It's true, almost too true. The other day I had a very weak wifi connection and was trying to send an email. It wouldn't go out due to the weak signal but the iPad wouldn't click over onto 3G. I turned off wifi and the message went right away. It's so easy to get to settings that I don't think a separate app is needed. Do you know about the double-tap trick with the home button?
