    Using Accounts2 app on the iPad

    Is anyone on this forum real familiar with the app “Accounts2” by SVT software? I need some help. I have been using this app to manage four different accounts for several years. All of a sudden, it has quit accepting input on my iPad. It still works normally on my iPhone. Does anyone have any...

    Switching from on-screen keyboard to separate Apple keyboard

    Good luck. I hope it works better than mine....about 50 percent of the time. Keep us posted.

    Switching from on-screen keyboard to separate Apple keyboard

    It’s amazing that Apple can design and produce great devices like iPads, iPhones, watches, etc, but can’t design a reliable electrical connection between the keyboard and iPad or come up with a fix for the crappy present one. Larry cruzen

    Switching from on-screen keyboard to separate Apple keyboard

    Mine is still driving me nuts. Happens to be working right now. I have found that wiggling the iPad around on the keyboard can sometimes cause it to work or fail, so it is apparently a connection problem. Cleaning the contacts or varying the pressure on them doesn’t seem to affect it. I really...

    Switching from on-screen keyboard to separate Apple keyboard

    It’s my Apple Smart Keyboard that’s driving me nuts. Yesterday it just wasn’t working at all...like it wasn’t there. I tried disconnecting it and cleaning contacts, but that didn’t help. This morning I turned the iPad on and went directly to pages to try out the keyboard. It was working...

    Switching from on-screen keyboard to separate Apple keyboard

    Hey, Twerppoet, you have a new picture! Your smart keyboard is a crumb-catcher just like mine. Something aint right here. I’ve had my smart keyboard for many months and used it all the time. Most of the time I could even use it while the on-screen keyboard was up. Now I can’t use it at all. It...

    Switching from on-screen keyboard to separate Apple keyboard

    I have an Apple keyboard/case for my iPad pro. How do I switch from the on-screen keyboard to the separate Apple keyboard? Most of the time, when I minimize the on-screen keyboard, the cursor disappears so the separate keyboard won’t type.

    Streaming Amazon Prime movies from iPad to TV

    Twerppoet, you are right, as usual. Despite the help section saying that it had to connect thru an Android phone, it did recognize my iPhone hotspot and I was able to get onto the internet with the Chromebook. It refuses to download the Amazon Prime app from the google play store, however...

    Streaming Amazon Prime movies from iPad to TV

    Well, so much for using the Google Chromebook. Turns out, only way to connect the chromebook to cellular is thru an Android phone. Sort of like trying to use a non-cellular Apple watch w/o an iPlhone. Guess I’ll have to dig out my 9 year old windows laptop and try it. I expect that will be a...

    Streaming Amazon Prime movies from iPad to TV

    Well, now I know what an Apple TV is....thanks, Jupiter, LannyC and Dave. Twerppoet, always glad to hear from you. A friend of mine uses an Android phone and a $12.95 dongle and very successfully streams Netflix, Amazon and Hulu to his TV. I blame him for my current frustration. I have a new...

    Streaming Amazon Prime movies from iPad to TV

    Not about to buy a pea pickin’ Apple TV to replace a perfectly good 55” dumb TV. I thought this would be a common thing to do and would draw lots of good suggestions. Guess I’ll fire up the old windows laptop to get out from under Apple and see what I can do.

    Streaming Amazon Prime movies from iPad to TV

    Our summer home in TN is in the boonies, so we have no high speed internet or WiFi. We use Verizon cellular and our iPads and iPhones. Cellular speeds are good enough that I can stream Amazon Prime movies to my iPad and iPhone using the Amazon Prime app. In an effort to stream to our dumb TV, I...

    Ipad pro freezing up briefly

    Yesterday, while my wife was shopping for shoes, I sat in the lobby and deleted 9,989 emails, deleted and reinstalled Yahoo Mail and Apple mail apps, deleted all apps that were not used within the last year or so and read “War and Peace “. This morning, my iPad seems to be working fine. Don’t...

    Ipad pro freezing up briefly

    Oops. Apple mail is back, because I frequently e-mail out of other apps. I’m wondering if every time I get an e-mail, the app sorts thru all e-mails in the inbox looking for a common thread? That would be a reason to keep a clean inbox. 30 1/2 hours running in the background in 10 days seems...

    Ipad pro freezing up briefly

    Thank you very much, Twerppoet. I never use Facebook, so I just deleted the app. Don’t think that was the problem. There were no surprises under battery usage except for mail. There were two mail apps showing a lot of background running. One was Yahoo mail, which I use. The other was just...

    Can you turn off an iPad Pro smart keyboard when using the on-screen keyboard?

    Ahhh....Twerppoet...my favorite helper on iPad Forum. I bring up the on-screen keyboard by holding the down arrow in the right hand corner of the screen. A that point, both keyboards are active. Bothered me for a while, but I’m used to it now. In fact, I have gotten to the point the I can use...

    Can you turn off an iPad Pro smart keyboard when using the on-screen keyboard?

    I like the screen angle when the smart keyboard is used as a stand on my lap. The broad base also makes it very stable. If I fold the keyboard back, the narrow base is very unstable. I thought maybe there was a way to turn the keyboard off when the on screen keyboard is brought up. If not, its...

    Can you turn off an iPad Pro smart keyboard when using the on-screen keyboard?

    I just upgraded to a 12.9” iPad Pro and Apple smart keyboard. Really nice piece of equipment. The speed and display are impressive. At times, I prefer to bring up the on-screen keyboard and just use the smart keyboard as a stand in my lap. Is there any way to turn off the smart keyboard so that...

    How to delete 10,000 e-mails

    Hi, Dave, thanks for your reply. I have an iPhone and an iPad. I signed into Yahoo mail using Safari. There, in my inbox, are the 10,000 e-mails. Now, what do I do? I don't see anyway to select them all and delete them.

    How to delete 10,000 e-mails

    this has probably been asked before, but nothing I have tried works. I have over 10,000 e-mails accumulated on my Yahoo account. I use the the Apple e-mail app, but also have the Yahoo app. How do I delete all e-mails in my in-box without losing the ones that I have moved to other e-mail boxes...

    Numbers graph...how to change Y axis data to X axis

    OK, here goes. I live in an area of no broadband internet access, so all internet data is via Verizon cellular. Not good to overrun the monthly limit, so I track our usage carefully each month. If it projects to overrun, I hide my wife's iPad. The first image shows a properly functioning chart...

    Numbers graph...how to change Y axis data to X axis

    What in the world are you doing up at 5:12 AM? Thanks for hanging with me on this. As I mentioned, there are some complicating factors here. In order to lay it all out, I will need to post several screen shots. Problem is, I don't know how to do that. When I touch the "image" icon next to the...

    Numbers graph...how to change Y axis data to X axis

    Don't think I posed my question clearly. I have a matrix consisting of only 4 columns. All 4 are data columns because header columns won't plot properly on a scatterplot. Leftmost column is time, derived from the iPad clock. Second column is a data input column Last 2 columns are calculated...

    Thanks, gentlemen, for the replies. I use IPad Air 2 with the latest version of IOS. Usually it's a scanned document that I want to open in a PDF app like PDF EXPERT or PDF FORMS. That problem is now solved by my new favorite scanner app "CLEAR SCANNER PRO" which offers both choices. It...

    How to add an attachment in Apple MAIL app?

    Hi, Dave. I am handicapped in many ways by not having WiFi access to the web. This appears to be another instance. When I know in advance that I will be including an attachment, I do start the e-mail from the appropriate app. Occasionally, in the middle of an e-mail, I decide to add an...

    How to add an attachment in Apple MAIL app?

    Good morning, Twerppoet. I have no Wi-Fi access, but it seems this should work anyway, just like "add photo". My documents are local on my iPad. Specifically, here is the different between "Photo" and "Attachment": Press, hold, select "insert photo" Goes to my albums Select desired photo Inset...

    In the Apple Mail app, if I press & hold in the body of the message, I get several options including "insert photo" & "insert attachment". "Insert photo" works, "insert attachment" doesn't. What's wrong? I know that I can go to the PAGES or NUMBERS apps, select the document and mail it, but...
