    Being sent to the Home Screen when in Safari and Mail

    It is usually a low memory error. You need to keep about 4gb free for smoother operation. Ive not got the ipad air so i dont get the exact same issues but try the usual things like freeing up memory, dont over fill with apps, delete the app and reinstall it from the appstore, check with the app...

    How long should a ipad last

    I got my iPad 2 just before the iPad 3 was released, which was annoying at the start but ive found the only thing that slows it down is the updates. Until two days ago i kept my iPad 2 on iOS 5.0.1 and never had any lag issues, in fact the only issue i came across was i could not download the...

    You need an hdmi adapter for the iPad and a DVI to hdmi cable. That will work perfectly.

    iFlash does't work with lighting to 30 pin adapter

    Does the lightning adapter work to charge your ipad from your ipod charger? Your not doing anything wrong it just seems to not be compatible. Maybe there is a slight power difference between the cables. Ive had ipad, ipods and iphones for years and loads of adapters for different things and...

    my ipad was hacked while I was using it.

    What version of ios are you all using? Im sure its a faulty screen though. What was you all doing at the time when it happened. Are you sure it was not just lagging and playing up? I bet its hard to try and prove it if nobody believes you though. It wouldnt surprise me if it was possible...

    New Member Being Hacked

    Unless you have items shared on your wifi device that could be picked up on a wifi network as a public folder. I highly doubt it. Same as if he knows your password to your device he could access it when you leave your device around for him to physically pick it up and browse through it or use...

    Ipad 2 enter into edit mode

    What do you mean by edit mode? Do you mean jiggly apps with an X ? Check your home button is not slighty pressed in. Try a soft reset by clearing your taskbar of apps and hold home and power buttons until it turns off and the apple icon appears. Maybe this will help.

    Before I buy the camera connection kit

    Not that i know of, you can use the cck to get the photos stored on the iphone. You need to plug the adapter into your ipad and from the usb a standard apple data cable is plugged into your iphone. Any photos on the iphone will be available to browse, copy etc on your ipad. As far as im aware...

    Can anyone recommend a 3D designer app for quick 3D sketches?

    I like to build things, so im looking for a easy to use 3D design app. It only has to be basic just so i can get a quick visual on what im building, with the option to add colour would be great. Any ideas? Ive had a quick look but they all seem to be furniture designers.

    You could try resetting your network connections in settings, bare in mind it will delete any of your saved networks and you will have to enter your wifi passwords again. Have you tried a soft reset on your ipad? Holding the home and power button until it fully resets and you see an apple logo...

    Unfortunately many websites like this dont work, i have the same issue uploading photos to websites. The only way around this is an app called aurigma up, but it doesnt work half the time although it has on some websites. I think this is only for photos though. Your best bet is to get an app...

    Apple TV

    Bit of a longshot but does the tv support DVI? You can get a hdmi to dvi cable. Thats how my old pc used to run however i cant remember if i had to use a surround sound system for the audio, but i cannot remember if that was essential or not. Just look for a long connector on the back of the tv...

    Is Apple getting ready to launch an 128GB iPad?

    No but thats my opinion, technology is advancing very quickly and what im saying is i wouldnt be surprised if a 250GB was just around the corner in some time soon in the future. I think its a fair comment.

    Is Apple getting ready to launch an 128GB iPad?

    Save your money, you can almost guarantee a 250gb version of either the 4 or 5 will no doubt be on its way too, like they did with the playstation and xbox. Its a good way for companies to sell the same model just with an upgrade to memory to shift more units. They knew from the start we would...

    Apple wants to trademark the design of its Apple stores

    To be fair though the chinese government do nothing about trademarks anyway is it not the capital of fake, poor knock off goods? They dont care what it is they will make a cheaper version and even steal the names and just change one letter etc. I bought a clock on ebay once and they sent me one...
