1. Due to the recent site upgrade, the iPadForums (iPF) App will no longer work. The new iPadForums.net website has been designed from the ground up to work perfectly from any mobile, tablet, or desktop computer using the built in internet browser. Create a shortcut to iPadForums.net on your home screen by following these steps: Create an icon for iPadForums.net

Don't read other iPad forums. Stick with iPF

    Stick with iPF for secure and none damaging information. I'll give you a few reasons why.

    After doing the JB on my ipad the directv app stopped working. Another forum stated that directv saved your UDID# and will permanently block the app from working even after you restore to out of the box state. That information was false. Guess what, I found no such bad info here at iPF. :thumbs:

    Downloaded the 5.0.1 restore 732mb file from another site, well guess what, it didn't work. I downloaded the one here at iPF and it worked. :thumbs:

    Other forums DO NOT have the quality of tutorials like iPF has. Good job Mods :thumbs:

    Other forums are a total mess and not categorized like iPF is which makes for better forum searches. :thumbs:

    Other forums do not have an iPad app like iPF does. :thumbs:

    Need I say anymore...

    Thanks iPF :eek:

    Another plaudit from here. I've indicated before that compared to another iPad forum I frequent, iPF is blessedly free of juvenile fanboy defensiveness. I'm very fond of my iPad despite constraints that annoy the hell out of me at times. It's great to have a forum where one can vent at times, discuss competing devices, or even defend a particular feature on the iPad without worry that the discussion will degenerate into personal attacks.

    I totally agree. I love my iPad, but lately, I have been using my computer almost all day instead of my iPad just because it's limitations are really starting to show through.
    And, I am fine with it. I am probably going to buy a MacBook Pro next instead of iPad because a Mac can replace both my iPad and windows computer.
    My iPad is just a fun device, when I need work done, and don't mind the extra luggage, I will grab my laptop.

    But that was an off-topic ramble.....

    As you keep learning, you can start to help others. And before you know it, you will have over 3,500 posts and two years invested in this forum.
    That's what happened to me! :)

    I agree that this is the best iPad forum I have found. That being said, objectiveness can only come from looking at all of the sites and making a judgement call based on that information. In the beginning, several web sites jumped onto the iPad bandwagon, and I have looked at most of them. I feel confident that one of the reasons why the site works is from the managers looking at other sites and using the best features they find. They should be congratuated on a fine job.
