    An iPad for an old lady

    Well, unless you are replacing her pc I wouldn't get rid of her Windows machine. The iPad does a lot but it is not going to replace her computer.

    Can't open videos/links on Facebook

    The signal problem could be location in the house as well. Do you connect just fine in some parts of the house and others are just 'dead'? It's just like a cell phone. Not much you can do about that. My daughter has the same problem, and we've never been able to remedy it.

    Pages and Numbers issues

    A better free office suite is Kingsoft Office. I used to use OpenOffice myself. Kingsoft is patterned after MS Office 2007 - looks and has most of the features for it as well. Saves in MS file formats and opens MS Office files as well. I'm not allowed to post links yet, but you can do a...

    Creating Apple ID on setup of iPad

    Anyone remember if setting up the Apple ID was mandatory when setting up the iPad? If someone is going to restore the iOS operating system because they want to sell their iPad, do they have to create an Apple ID at the time of restoring it? Can't remember for the life of me if waiting was an...

    Siri problem

    I give iPad classes at a computer club, and I've run into a weird problem. Siri has activated on a few students iPads during the classes. Is it possible to shut Siri off and then later turn it back on without affecting the way it operates for that user? I'm guessing Siri must be picking up my...

    How does Pages save an edited document

    This question might sound weird, but I am currently using a free app for another word processing program and am somewhat annoyed at the way my iPad saves edited documents with it. Instead of updating the original, it creates a copy and saves that. How does Pages treat a document edited on an...

    Difference from iPad 2 to iPad Air

    I've been teaching iPad classes at my computer club with my iPad 2 for several months and now the club is getting a new iPad Air for instructors (primarily me). Anyone who can clue me in on major features to look for while I get my chance to take it home and get used to it (aside from Siri - I...

    Opening PowerPoint attachments ,but no sound .....

    What is the file format of the audio? That could be the factor. I know the iPad won't handle a .wav file. Another app you might try is the Kingsoft Office suite app. It's free and will run MS Office files - don't know about the audio though.

    iCloud/ Google Drive/ Microsoft One Drive/ the Box??? DROPBOX!!

    Probably because many of us don't have the freebie option. Apple really screwed over older customers with this one. I'm not going to pay for something others are getting for free just because they bought more recently. I feel sorry for those who layed out the money to purchase these programs...

    iCloud/ Google Drive/ Microsoft One Drive/ the Box??? DROPBOX!!

    There is a FREE office suite for your pc called Kingsoft Office 2013 based on MS Office 2007 and it has a mobile app that is good for editing. No spreadsheet editing though - only viewing. Good for Powerpoint presentations as well. It will open and save all docs created and edited in...

    Well, we finally have a way to save our docs, pics, etc. in folders like we're used to on our pcs. The Filemaster app has been great so far. I've had it for a couple of weeks now. Anyone been using it for a while and have any tips about using it? I'm going to start including this app in my...

    The schools and business market is a good point. If Apple thinks they are going to 'force' people to buy new in this economy, they better get their collective heads out of the clouds and come down to the real world. Look what's happened to Microsoft and XP. Plenty of businesses are still...

    iPad 2 has been discontinued by Apple, but will it still be able to get updates - especially iOS 8 for instance.

    Pages on iPad2 frozen on Document Details page.

    Have you ever done a complete reset of your iOS operating system. My iPad 2 was having some minor issues - like the now and then freeze up, or certain apps crashing. Once I did a total reset, everything is working fine. iPads don' get general maintenance like our computers do (disk cleanup...
