    A tablet that doesn't do much but text

    I would like to find a way to make it possible for my SO to text her kids. I am 81 and have been using PCs etc since there were any. I worked at IBM when the first pcs came out. She, however, "has trouble with anything with more than one button". I have tried taking almost everything off of...

    Mute my iPad

    I have an iPad pro 10.5 and I use it sometimes to watch TV. As I do on my TV I would like to mute the sound during commercials. The best solution that I have found is using an external speaker and switching it off and on but that is awkward and I don't always have a speaker handy. Anyone have...

    Something new or have I lost my last marble??

    This morning my partner's daughter sent me this message on FB messenger: Can you show this to mom? It's a very simple exercise and think it would really help her. "Along with a video." When I pulled it up the first two sentences were already in the out box. I'll tell her. And I'll keep her...

    Corrupt Apple ID -- strange problem

    I just got an iPad 2 Air and plan to give my iPad 2 to my SO. I reset it to new and used my Apple ID. Then moved things around to set it up for her. The problem: I decided that it would be better for her to have her own Apple ID so I went to reset it again and start over. It won't take my ID...

    Looking for a QuikIO replacement

    QuikIO has been deactivated. This app made it possible for me to work with files on my LAN where ever I had an internet connection. I could designate what I wanted available. this was so much easier than me setting up a VPN. Anyone have a suggestion for a replacemment? I use File Browser...

    Non loading "Mint" App

    I have an iPad 2 running iOS 7.0.4. Mint appears to download properly and the icon comes up. When I touch the icon a Mint page comes up but immediately goes dark and back to the page of icons. Mint runs OK on my iPhone 4s with iOS 7.0.4 and on my Win 7 PC. My guess is that the problem is...

    For those of you that have switched to iOS7...... a question

    I have an jail broken iPad 2 running iOS 5 and an iPhone 4s running iOS7. I find that many of the APPs that I use regularly and some of the new ones that I would like to use require iOS 7. I have reached a tipping point where I would be willing to give up the wonders of JB to be able to use...

    iPad as a GPS

    I'm looking for a GPS app for my JB iPad2. I have of course found a few and have installed a couple, MotionX and thinking about Navigon. But: I am really looking for an app that will let me plan a route on the PC and then install it on the iPad. I'm doing this now with MapSource and a Garmin...

    Playing VIDEO_TS folders

    On my PC VLC player will play the entire folder just as if it were comming from a DVD. The streaming version of VLC does not have the "folder select" option and each file must be played seperatly. I just tried QuikIO and that will not do it either. I've had good luck playing these folders on...

    Sent to OneNote

    I have an iPad2 (JB if that matters) and I'm trying to use the "send to OneNote" option on my PC. Send to Onenote acts like a printer on the PC and the printed copy ends upas a new page in ON. I have tried FingerPrint and PrintSharePro. ON showes up as a printer in both but the copy never...

    "Windowing" on iad2

    I'm considering a jailbreak. One of the things that would interest me would be to "window" or run two app at the same time. Example: I often have a document with numbers that I would like to add. It would be really helpful to be able to bring up the doc and then run a calculator in the...

    What the.....And how did I do that???

    I would have made the title more descriptive if I knew what to call it. I was sitting in my truck on the ferry yesterday and I fumbled a bit when I took the iPad2 out of the carry case. I looked down and there were all my icons on one page and at about half size. Then I touched the screen and...
