    Hi there,
    I am a new forum user and I've been a paid software developer for decades and just started messing about with iOS and Objective-C on the iPhone and iPad. I am really enjoying it so far. I have two apps in the app store, "CryWhy" (*) and "Cricket Score Sheet". I will be updating these apps in the near future.

    I am really really stuck for ideas for a new app... Every time I think, "hey that would be a great idea for an app", I go to the app store and find page after page of them. Maybe I am not being original enough. Suggestions very very welcome. ;)

    Cheers,


    Regan

    * I've been using an open source library called Chromaprint for audio matching and it is not doing what I want so I am going to rip the guts of the app out and re-work it entirely...

    Hi Regan and welcome to the forum. There are certainly many apps in what I think is in a very disorganised App store.

    Not a big issue, but one App that, I at least, would find appropriate for the Home screen would be for SIRI. Now we have to hold down the Home button until SIRI graces us with her presence. A nice colourful SIRI App would look nice. It's just that the Home button already has a number of uses without complicating it with the SIRI feature.

    Regards, Andrew

    Bonjour, bienvenue sur le forum!
    (Hello, and welcome to the forum!)
    The iPad Forums (called iPF for short) is the largest online forum dedicated to the revolutionary piece of technology that is the iPad. This forum, as you way expect, contains a wealth of information that is at your fingertips. This is the reason why the search tool can be your best friend, as there is a wealth of information spread across a variety of threads. It is likely that you will find a thread containing an answer to your question, but if not, then by all means, post your question. Be sure that your are in the correct section before doing so, by selecting the Forum index button and selecting the forum that your query falls into (most likely iPad Help) before clicking the New Thread button. Since we have a community full of friendly, helpful members that are only too willing to help, your issue should be solved in no time! It is likely that there are others who have the same problem, but have not posted a thread on it, and you will all benefit from the information gained, plus others in the community who always love to learn more about the iPad. Don't feel that you're the only noob and everyone else knows more; we have plenty of new members who are learning about the iPad quickly, thanks to the online community known as iPad Forums.

    We have our own app for the iOS operating system; it is very easy to navigate and is a great way to harness the power of iPF on your iPad. http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/discu...412896524?mt=8
    We are hoping to get an app for your computer sometime in the future; for now, visit this site on your computer.
    iPad Forum
    A great place to start is the Apple iPad manual. Please get a copy of this and read it prior to posting your question.
    Apple - Support - Manuals
    We have a few threads here that you can greatly benefit from if you are interested in learning tips, tricks, and shortcuts for the iPad. If you have read through the three following threads and know of a tip/trick/shortcut that is not mentioned on them, feel free to add it!

    Like any online community, we do have rules. Please read them through before making any further posts. http://www.ipadforums.net/forum-rul...um-rules-everybody-please-read.html#post14697
    Also, for your iPhone-related questions/comments/tips/etc., please check out our sister site, iPhone Forums.
    iPhone Forum
    You should feel right at home there, as the website has the same interface, and you will find that many of the administrators, moderators, and members from iPad Forums are also on iPhone Forums. Mainly the same rules apply cross-website, but please read them as well. Visit the iPhone Forum website for more information.

    Encore une fois, nous vous souhaitons la bienvenue et sommes très heureux que vous nous avez rejoint! (Once again, we welcome you here and are so pleased you have joined us!) Keeping all of this information (and the community rules) in mind, please enjoy the forum; we love having new members to contribute to this wonderful community and database of information. Remember, the three objectives are to help others out/learn something new, enjoy the forum, and HAVE FUN!

    We really appreciate you joining us. Our most benevolent thanks go to you.

    Sincerely yours/Best regards,
    Goofy
