    An app that turns on/shuts down iPad at specific time?

    I've now converted my old iPad into a digital photo frame, using the iOS' own photo slide function. A very nice one at that too. There is one shortcoming: I can't control when the photo frame should turn on and shut down. Ideally, I would like the iPad to turn on in the morning and shut down at...

    Is there an app for audio recording + powerpoint annotating?

    Yes, that's exactly what I was looking for! I've just tried Notability, and it does everything I need very well. Thanks!

    Is there an app for audio recording + powerpoint annotating?

    Thanks for the answer. Converting Powerpoint to PDF and annotating on the PDF is one thing. Do those PDF annotation apps allow you to take audio note with iPad's microphone too? In a nutshell, I'd like to take a "real-time" audio + written notes. In playback, I should be able to "play" both...

    Is there an app for audio recording + powerpoint annotating?

    Many of today's lectures and talks utilize powerpoint slides. So what I do is print out the powerpoint slides in advance and take notes on the printout. That makes me wonder. If there was an app that lets you make annotations directly on powerpoint slides and even record audio of the lecture...

    Lag in searching email address in iPad 1: also issue in iPad 2 or new iPad?

    Exactly. That's the point! Nobody's trying to accuse Apple of trying to slow down old devices on purpose. Other than a few quirks, my iPad 1 still works fine on iOS 5. Is it slower than newer devices? Absolutely. Is it unbearable overall? No. But when it comes down to a very small issue like...

    Lag in searching email address in iPad 1: also issue in iPad 2 or new iPad?

    I've heard an interesting theory from a friend. According to her, Apple is well aware of these problems caused by a newer OS on an outdated device, but is not going to fix them, because they want people to think these problems go away on a newer device (which is true) and upgrade their...

    Is there an app that can stream music saved on Google Drive?

    Yes, that's what I said. What I'm asking about here in the OP was how to stream off Google Drive.

    Is there an app that can stream music saved on Google Drive?

    Ahh... I didn't know that.. I thought streaming had to do with only the client side. Does that mean SkyDrive is actively providing streaming service? With the SkyDrive app for iPad, I can definitely see music is being streamed, not downloaded.

    Is there an app that can stream music saved on Google Drive?

    Yes, I'm aware of Amazon Cloud Player. There is also Google's equivalent - Google Music. But I'd like to keep my music on Google Drive for other reasons and be able to stream, if possible. If not, I guess I'll have to settle for an alternative like Amazon Cloud Player or Google Music. The...

    Is there an app that can stream music saved on Google Drive?

    Is there an app that can stream music saved on Google Drive? Google's own iPad app can't stream music, so I was wondering if there is a third-party app that can do it. (For comparison, Google's own Android app can't stream music either, and there are third-party Android apps that streams music...

    Lag in searching email address in iPad 1: also issue in iPad 2 or new iPad?

    Yes, I'm on iOS 5. Hope Apple will issue a fix for this soon if it is indeed an iOS 5 issue.

    Lag in searching email address in iPad 1: also issue in iPad 2 or new iPad?

    When I type in the first few letters or name of an email recipient, my iPad 1 searches my contact database to figure out the full email address. It's an invaluable feature for me, as I sometimes don't remember people's full email address. The only problem is that my iPad 1 takes time to do it...

    iPad app that can take down notes on Powerpoint slides?

    For a recent conference, I took my iPad instead of a laptop for the first time. While it lessened the burden on my back, the overall benefit was equivocal. The most prominent problem was the lack of easy way to take down notes on powerpoint presentation materials. With a laptop, I'd just run...

    Is there any app/hack/method to parse DOI (digital object identifier)?

    One thing that prevents my full migration from laptop to iPad for RSS reading is DOI (document object identifier) capability. RSS feeds for academic journals often include DOI links for full-text PDF. When I'm on my laptop, whenever I come across a DOI, the DOI-handler plugin within the...
