    I work for an agency that works with adults with disabilities. A donor bought an IPad for one of our members and purchased ProloQuo2go for him. It has been a wonderful purchase but she synced it to her computer. Those of us who work closely with him would like to be able to do upgrades and personalize it for him such as adding music for him to listen to. He does not have Internet access at home so is dependent on us to keep him updated. Can we sync it to a computer here at the agency?

    Thanks!

    If you upgrade to OS5 the iPad will then be computer independent - it can sync direct to the cloud. As a non- expert, I'm not sure you can do that without downloading and installing through the PC that you're linked to at the moment. Alternatively, you can reset the iPad, sync to another comp and install OS5, but then you'll lose the data that's currently on it.

    I think you'll have to ask your donor to sync the iPad one last time.

    you can sync with another PC without resetting, sorry. Once you've done so, download and install OS5 so that you can be free of pc's.
