    What's the last movie you saw?

    I saw Disconect on tuesday. The story was good, the movie was a little strange. A good chunk of the movie is just silence with you watching someones face as they type on the computer and their text is displayed on the bottom of the screen as they type. It was almost like a silent film. I also...

    Why no PassBook?

    yes, I was really dissapointed after installing iOS 6 on my iPad after the announcement only for PassBook to be missing. I understand that the majority of people do not carry their iPads with them everywhere they go. However I am one of the people that have my iPad with me at all times. There...

    Listen to normal and HD FM radio with your iPad.

    I just was in a radioshack and saw that they had a dongle for the iPod that says it allows iPod and iPhones to receive FM radio and HD radio signals. It was in an area with a bunch of clearance items and the price tag was only $9 so I decided to pick one up. I had wanted to get an HD radio...

    How long does it take to get my app approved?

    Last week I got an email that my app required longer than normal review time. I'm not sure why as the app is super simple and I only spent an hour making it. I just got the email that my app has been approved, it still has not shown up in the app store yet. So there you have it, took over 20...

    Vacation to the USA from UK - 4G / LTE?

    You will need to make two stops, #1 any local shop that sells pre-paid credit cards. any local drug store or super market should sell them. #2 an ATT shop to get a simcard. The simcard will cost you, i forget the exact price but its somewhere between $10-$20 activate the simcard on your device...

    iOS 6: No more street view?

    You are correct, no Street View since that was part of google maps. Also note that all apps that you have that currently use Google maps will automatically switch to apples maps when run on iOS 6. I have not looked at the new Maps api but 3rd party app makers could always specifically code their...

    Siri comfirmed for new iPad

    I've been playing with Siri on my new iPad and can say that its working fairly well. I'm linking how easy it is to set reminders via siri and checking movie times as well since I do both of those things often. I'm disapointed that PassBook didnt make it to the iPad.

    A new iOS6 and persist the same basic mail program.

    No new buttons. What they did is when you double tap in the email body just like how you would get the Past menu to past text there is another one called "insert photo or Video"

    Find My iPad - I'm confused!

    a tech savvey thief will know what to do in order to not be tracked. adding a password is good if you have any private information on the device that you don't want to be accessible to any thieves. However if a non tech savvey thief steals your iPad and it has no password locks, chances are...

    Siri coming to iPad!

    well, the iPad 3 has the hardware for siri and even does the voice dictation part already. Its just a matter of if apple has finished getting siri ready and if they can handle the increase in siri users(its all processed remotely). Note that it would be for iPad 3 and not first/second gen iPads.

    Default browser

    as of now I have not found any browsers for the iPad that are better than safari. if your having issues close safari fully like what was already said, and reboot the iPad.If that fails, perform a restore. Safari should not be crashing.

    exchange mail not syncing

    it will not sync at all? or it just is slow? if its just slow make sure push email is enabled. if its not syncing at all, delete the account from the iPad and just set it up again. If that still fails to get it working It may be an issue at your exchange email server itself.

    Extend Desktop without software

    extending will require software. You can remotely view your desktop from the iPad without installing software but thats totally different than extending.

    Why can't I download movies from Amazon

    amazon movies require flash player to watch witch is not possible on the iPad. Also amazon movies stream and are not downloads so your airplane would need to have good wifi to get amazon movies on a capable device. Even if the plane has wifi, I would count streaming out as the plane wifi...

    iPad 3 - Maps & GPS

    Yep, just like your cellphone has a GPS. The reason almost all smartphones have GPS units now is because the GPS is now built into all of the major cellphone chips. So if you don't have the cellular chip for 3G/4G data you also don't have any GPS chip. Apple does do some other things to give you...

    I have a game idea

    you could try and find someone on one of the app developer freelance sites. But I would defiantly check out that the person has made your type of game before and that the quality is up to your standards for what a game should look like. They usually have different types of payment methods like...

    XCode Requirements

    I got a Mac Mini 3 years ago just for making apps with xCode. Not only has the Mac Mini been great for xCode, but it has become my Main computer of choice.

    Help teaching a kid to build iPad apps using windows

    Hackintosh while not exactly legal is a world of problems and incompatibilities. When teaching a kid that's starting out, throwing a bunch of possible problems,issues,and legal concerns are not the best thing. An added level of unnecessary frustration would only discourage them.

    Anyone good with graphic design?

    Don't worry about it, I actually bit the bullet yesterday and put together some icons and loading screens for it. I submitted it to the app store for review if there are any other people like me hopefully this app will fill the void of apps in the app store that don't do this. You asked what...

    Help teaching a kid to build iPad apps using windows

    Step #1 must purchase a Mac. To go the cheapest route, get a used Mac Mini I think they are in the $500 price range for a brand new low end model (at least they used to be) and you can find a used one for a little less. Problem #2 You can create apps for free on a Mac, however you can only...

    Anyone good with graphic design?

    I'm not the best at graphic design, so I'm asking for anyone willing to spare a little time to make some icons and a loading screen graphic for an app I made today. I made this app because there was nothing available in the app store, I saw people asking for this in their disapointing reviews...

    iPad3 3G carrier locked

    The iPads do not come locked. You can replace the simcard with another providers sim card and start using it. The only thing you need to be aware of is the frequencies that the iPads use. The verizon and ATT iPad 3 are in fact different by what frequencies they can use. ATT iPad 3 does not...

    Official iPad3 Jailbreak Thread

    Who knows how long it will be. They are all cashing in on the 250k reward for private jailbreak methods. If you came up with a jailbreak method and were offered 250k to not make it public would you take the money?

    New iPad 3 user - the most frustrating 7 hours of my life.......

    Is the iPad 3 Camera Active all the time,? or only when being used.

    its only on when the apps are using the camera. I with PC's people get really parranoid and some of the webcam makers include a physical window that you can shut over the camera lens to be sure no one could see anything even if the camera was turned on. I'm surprised no case manufactures have...
