    New fonts in iOS 4.2.1

    Just for listing all the fonts Unfortunately only a few apps allow you to make full use of iOS fonts. The Typefaces app is just for viewing the fonts that are installed.

    Occasional screen flicker - is that normal?

    I never associated the flickering with battery level - but rather with wifi activity. Will check now if it only happens with a nearly fully charged battery.

    Very disappointed with ios 4.2

    No problems here either - well worth the wait.

    New fonts in iOS 4.2.1

    While playing around with the Typefaces app, I noticed that Apple included nearly 50 new typefaces in iOS 4.2.1. Many of these are meant for non-Latin languages but even we get additional goodies such as 7 extra Helvetica Neue faces. The full list is in this overview. Can anyone explain the...

    How to create a fullscreen mockup app

    Thanks, I had a look at that app but it is geared towards protoyping a single screen. I am looking for a tool that allows me to display a number of screens with very basic navigation from one to the other. Your tip however made me find other wireframing tools that might be worth looking into.

    How to create a fullscreen mockup app

    I want to show some people what an iPad app could look like and need to create a mockup for this. What I need is the ability to have a custom icon on the iPad screen - ideally I have control over the look of the icon and its name. When you tap this icon it displays a fullscreen image (which...

    Number of site visitors

    Just out of curiosity - could one of the admins look up the site stats and tell us what percentage of visitors actually use an iPad for browsing these forums? I assume the analytics can make that distinction. It should be over 50%, shouldn't it?

    First impressions after using the iPad for three weeks

    Thanks for the feedback @gentlefury: I am using a Windows machine at home and apparently iTunes on Mac is indeed a faster. @1991-C4: The backups are incremental. If you never skip one, it takes less time each time you sync. If you're already through that inititial rush of trying out dozens of...

    I think someone mentioned in a thread at the Mobileread forums that this has meanwhile been fixed in the latest release of iBooks.

    First impressions after using the iPad for three weeks

    I also skipped back-ups but the upgrader to 3.2.2 insisted on backing up all data first prior to updating the OS. If you skip back-ups, doesn't that give you headaches as soon as Apple updates show up?

    First impressions after using the iPad for three weeks

    I've done a little write-up of my impressions after using the iPad for nearly a month. You can find it on my blog. As thrilled as I am about the device itself, iTunes has proven to be a royal pain in the a**. A little rant about how annoyingly slow the backup mechanism of iTunes works is on...

    Occasional screen flicker - is that normal?

    Once every week or so I notice that the iPad's screen starts flickering a bit. The effect usually disappears after a few minutes. It doesn't seem to be related to a particular app or way of using the machine. Is this behavior normal or have others noticed it as well? Any explanation on why this...

    Hello from Belgium

    The iPad went on sale in Belgium 3 weeks back and I got one the second day - It actually took me a day to find a place that still had them in stock. I've been using Macs for over 20 years so I more or less knew what to expect when it comes to the quality of the hardware. The software is a bit...
