    Looking for a new Note-taking app for iPad, Windows, Mac, etcetera

    Hello: I currently use GoodNotes, and I like it because it allows me to import a PDF document and take notes right on it. The problem is, GoodNotes does not have a PC counterpart. I want to be able to do the same things on a PC or Mac that I can do on my iPad. And that includes DRAWING and...

    My ipad's gps always on, running up my data and wearing down battery

    Figured it out! Star Trek movie app was using it like the world was coming to an end. Required location services to be on but was lightweight until today. Must have been a new update. Nuisance app, too. Was annoyingly light on info about upcoming movie and just now costed me $10+ in...

    My ipad's gps always on, running up my data and wearing down battery

    Subject says it all... No apps running, already shut off and restarted, no effect. Little gps icon is active in upper rt corner, and no apps should be using it. Plus, I'm out of data now. How can I reset the GPS or iPad? iOS 6.1

    How pervasive are the iPad 3 WiFi problems?

    I was unaware of any WIFI problems. DSL works fine when I'm at home; LTE works everywhere else.

    Anybody Upgrade iOS to 5.1.1?

    No problems here. It did result in an automatic reboot, but that's not unexpected.

    Feeling a bit strange when in public

    If one is ever in fear for one's life, then one should be willing to use deadly force, whether or not a weapon is at hand. The criminals living amongst us are COUNTING on us rolling over to play dead, and that is why they get away with so much evil. We will not fight, and we will not punish...

    The Jury has turned in a Verdict.

    I think this will ultimately hurt technological advances. I should be able to code anything with a programming language except maybe a competing programming language. We are hurting ourselves!

    Feeling a bit strange when in public

    It's only a matter of time before misplaced guilt will begin to hold you back in life. You worked hard, and you're making good life decisions. Go with that.

    Feeling a bit strange when in public

    I don't let anybody from the press tell me what is elitist and what is not. The press is elitist!

    Overnight 8-hr Charge stopped at 65%

    Curious, what does Apple charge to replace batteries...for any of their devices?

    Overnight 8-hr Charge stopped at 65%

    Deep discharging batteries is usually not good for them, regardless of type. No, Lithium batteries don't have "memory", but deep discharging is very rough on all batteries. But in Apple's case, since they recommend we do run it down to zero periodically, I would bet that there's circuitry in...

    Overnight 8-hr Charge stopped at 65%

    Just bear in mind that batteries are not precisely tuned energy containers. It's actually quite difficult to correctly estimate the SOC (State of Charge) of any given battery. To disappoint you even further, your particular battery may have an idiosyncrasy that makes it impossible for the...

    Missing Music from iPad 3

    How kind of you! I think I'll be fine. Changing the metadata seems to resync the songs, so I'll do a few genres each day. :D

    Missing Music from iPad 3

    I just did that with New Age, and that is adding 157 songs as I type this.

    Missing Music from iPad 3

    You're right, settings/about reports 3299. I should also say that as a test, I used iTunes on the PC to change the metadata for a bunch of songs...for example changing "disk 1 of 1" to "disk 1 of 9", then back again. Then those songs will magically get copied over on the next sync. So...

    Missing Music from iPad 3

    Oops, I should have also said that I can't find entire albums on the iPad...even when looking for different sort orders (e.g. "Chris Spheeris" versus "Spheeris, Chris").

    Missing Music from iPad 3

    I have 8383 songs in the PC's iTunes folder. How do I get a total song count on my iPad to see if they match?

    Missing Music from iPad 3

    Well, it's been a few days and I have noticed that only 12 gb of my music library has been transferred to my ipad 3. I have 'entire library' selected, and it should be closer to 37 GB. If I use itunes on my pc to change the songs (for example, to change the track or disk number), then I do a...

    What can you actually do on an ipad?? All IPF members.

    Consider bringing your own WIFI router to your next conference then...like a pocket WIFI that's just not plugged into the internet. If my guess is correct, it would be just like being at home, except no router-provided internet connection during the conference. Or alternatively, you may be...

    Sorry for the "bump", but I still have trouble finding anything on this. Any thoughts on this?

    I totally agree! That way I would have a comprehensive record. Annoyingly comprehensive, even.

    Missing Music from iPad 3

    I still do not know what happened, nor do I know "how" it got fixed, but I did fix it. Here's what I did. I do not know which steps helped or which did not. Maybe others can help narrow it down. I have no proof, but I suspected that some miscommunication happened between my Windows...

    I was embarrassed to ask the question, now I am happy that I did! And...what does "skitch" mean? Thanks again!

    Looking for a good iPad app for recording my labor on various projects

    My company has a time recording system but the only way to input time is as a sum total for a given charge code for the whole day. The smallest unit we can charge is in tenths (.1 hour = 6 minutes). But it gets hard to track if I work 6 minutes here, 12 minutes there, and then I get a phone...

    Missing Music from iPad 3

    Imagine my surprise when my 35 GB music library just disappeared from my iPad 3! It appears that all is fine on iTunes on my main computer. Syncing via USB or WIFI seems to not replace the songs on the iPad, however. So what broke it? I have Backup to this computer selected, as well as "open...

    Do you regret not purchasing 3G/4G

    I have the 4G from Verizon. I bought the 5GB plan. For me, it has been indispensable thus far. I do plan to monitor my usage with the possible intent of going down to the 2GB plan to save $20...so we'll see. WIFI is great and covers 90% of my usage, but really, for that remaining 10%...

    Hello from an iPad newbie

    Greetings! Happy with my new iPad so far. Shopping for apps, but the budget is tight after buying this thing, so I'm sticking mostly to "free". :p I've been searching and browsing the threads here and they have been very helpful thus far. Have a great day!
