    Buying apps

    Yep it sucks, especially given how many apps now in the store there are several that may do what you want but without spending £40 you can't work out which is the best one

    Knowing what you know NOW ~ would you still buy your ipad?

    I would still get one but I would have loosened the purse strings a little more and got 3G 32GB. I could manage without the extra space but I really really really wish I had 3G!

    Do you regret not getting 3G?

    I regret not getting 3G because I use my iPad out and about a lot. Something like 38% of iPad owners never take it out of the house and 20% again don't use it in public places, I would imaging that most people don't need 3G .... I do though and I wish I had

    iPad Case for Business

    If it is a small amount of thin documents you want to store alongside your iPad then the Slotzz cases should do the job. They are a snug fit though so may not have all the room you're after. I keep a note pad in with mine and it's all ok Cheers Simon Disclosure: I run Slotzz

    Wishlist ... what would you like to have on yr iPad?

    1. Retina display screen 2. More RAM than the iPhone 4 so that safari would retain web pages across all open tabs, that way they wouldn't reload when skipping between tabs 3. Loose the disable auto rotate switch Simon

    Huh. My calenda r is one day off need help. .. Ipad

    I had this once with my iPhone and Mac book I cant remember the exact fix and I can't recreate the issue but it came down to a difference between time zones on my Mac and iPhone. I use mobile me and I think the issue was with a time zone in there come to think of it. If you ise mobile...

    How Much Have You Spent Protecting Your iPad?

    I couldn't find anything I liked so we started a company making customised cases, handmade to order. I wanted something slim, lightweight and that could double as a temporary stand. I keep my iPad in my bag so didn't need lots of padding So quite a lot of money on a case/protection if you take...

    new iPad in november???

    I agree that it wasn't a very good presentation but at 15mins 15seconds to 35seconds he is listing 4.2 for iPad with HDR said at 15mins 29secs I agree it is unlikely there will be a camera for this iPad, but a smaller one maybe apart from a front facing one for face time I see little point...

    new iPad in november???

    In the keynote 2 days ago Jobs said something along the lines of: "iOS 4.2 will bring all these great features to iPad; folders, multitasking, HDR, and ...." If you download the video and whiz to that part of the video he deff says HDR for iPad in 4.2. Either it was a slip of the...

    Reading in bed - Needing a Stand

    Hi, I've just bought a MoviePeg from these guys, it's cheap and portable and works on you're lap so may be a good alternative MoviePeg — the no-hand stand for movies and more Simon

    Did you actually read the user guide/instructions when you got your iPad?

    I had to go searching for a manual like document to work out what the "disable auto rotate" switch was. Proper brain stall on that one, just didn't think to try rotating it when the switch was thrown Si

    Is There A Way... Browser Question...

    Hi, The reason safari does this, as far as I'm aware, is because of the limited device memory. Each tab is a separate view as far as safari is concerned and therefore any view that is not being viewed, or not in the view hierarchy that you are in (think iPod>artists>albums>album as an example)...

    Just A Big iPhone....

    I agree, I'm always asked "as you've got a MacBook and iPhone, what do you use you iPad for?" I've got it down to a stock reply now that answers everyones question and generally stops any "ah, but what about..." My reply is: "I don't know what ONE thing I use it for is, but I do know that what...

    Next gen iPad

    Well every analyst is having to constantly update their numbers for the amount of tablets sold by the end of the year, basically because of how popular the iPad has been. I don't see it slowing any time soon but you never know. If they can't break into that Mum market that they so clearly want...

    Next gen iPad

    Yeah, I know they tend to go for the yearly releases, iPhone in May, iPods in fall and macs as and when they feel like it. I guess it is wishful thinking mainly, always nice to have something new and shiny to drool over a bit sooner. Really looking forward to what iOS4 will bring to iPad...

    iPad or macbook?

    Do that, you'll cover a lot of the cost of the iPad when you sell the brand new, unopened, iPod Touch. If need be, for cash purposes, take a spec hit on the macbook and put that saved money toward an iPad. Also, it's been years since I've properly used iTunes on a PC but doesn't it suck? Using...

    Next gen iPad

    Ok, so this has probably been discussed and I just can't find it anywhere, but does anyone think the delay on iOS4 for iPad could signify a cheeky hardware upgrade for October/November time. It just seems odd that this world beating device, that Steve Jobs clearly loves, is left with half the...

    Prototyping our carbon fiber IPAD case (part II)

    Very nice looking case, I know it's made of carbon fibre but how much does it weigh when you add all the padding etc?

    ANY have the Skadoosh Stand?

    Clever but really hard to carry around and will I'd be worried about it scratching the iPad screen. It is pretty clever though, some one spent a lot of time designing it though

    Things I want in a case

    TUAW had an article about some colourful felt cases that may do what you're after. Can't remember what they were called but looked ok

    So My iPad Died today

    Ouch, I think I'd have been spinning. I remember I used to have pretty bad luck with iPods but not since the iPhone came out has anything like that happened to me

    Hoping for some help

    Hi guys, I'm very new here and I am hoping for some help. I am looking to start a company in the iPad accessory field as I have an idea for a new type of iPad stand. I am currently trying to do as much market research as I can in my spare time and I'm really hoping that some of you would...

    A stand

    Hi guys, Has any one found a reasonably priced iPad stand yet? The ones I've found here in the UK seem pricey and bulky. Cheers Simon

    Hello all

    Had my iPad 2 weeks now and love it. Granted I don't NEED it but it do love it. People keep asking me what I use it for, my stock reply is "Not sure really, but I really love what I do do on it!" most people chuckle and look pensive (or wistful, I'm not sure which) Cheers for now Simon
