    Google Maps: How to delete an entry from the search list

    I just installed Google Maps on my iPhone 4 and logged into my Gmail account. When I tap the search bar I get presented in the list with name and address of a store about which I a very long time ago left a feedback on Google. I'm not interested in this store. How do I get rid of this entry in...

    Looking for an "iPad as surveillance camera" app

    Is there an app that turns an iPad (or iPod touch) into a 24/7 surveillance camera, accessible from anywhere via internet either through a web browser, or another iOS app, or an OS X application? It would be great to hear (or read) from someone who has actual experience with such an app. I did...

    iPad 4 not connecting to WiFi network

    I deleted the networks on the router and recreated them again and now both iPads do connect to both networks. No idea why this was necessary.

    iPad 4 not connecting to WiFi network

    Doesn't make any difference. Now the iPad 4 does not connect at all anymore to the 5 GHz network, only to the 2.4 GHz network. The iPad 3 can connect to both networks and the iPad 3 is also still seeing more available networks (although by far not as many as my iMac sees - in the moment I see 3...

    iPad 4 not connecting to WiFi network

    I have two iPads in front of me - mine (iPad 3, WiFi only) and a friend's (iPad 4, WiFi and 3G). The iPad 4 has no data plan yet. Both iPads have iOS 6.0.1. My iPad is and stays connected to my WiFi network (as well as my iMac and two MacBooks) but the iPad 4 looses the connection all the...

    Unified "Sent" mailbox in Mail (or any other mail application)

    Hello, I miss to have a unified "Sent" mailbox in Mail on my iPad, similarily to the unified "All Inboxes" mailbox. It makes dealing with mails from different accounts very cumbersome. Can Mail be configured to show such a unified sent mailbox? If Mail cannot do it, is there any other iOS...

    In that case I apologize for letting this escalate. Thanks for your reply.

    How to see all 24 hours of a day in Calendar at once

    What information - related to my question - did scifan give? Whoever looks a Calendar's week view sees that it is possible to scroll up and down (and whoever uses an iPad is probably familiar with the concept of screen scrolling), and my question was simple and clear: "Can this be changed to see...

    Can I get rid of books that are in "Purchased Books" in iBooks?

    Thanks. That's already much better. I also do understand that Apple, of course, cannot just delete a purchase history. But it would be good to have the option to let certain items disappear completely - kind of similar to being able on a Mac to hide certain available updates and not being...

    How to see all 24 hours of a day in Calendar at once

    Why not simply saying: "No, this is not possible" if this is the case? I'd also like to add that it certainly would be possible if Apple would allow it. Right now the 12 hour view has 2 lines per hour. If this would be reduced to one line per hour we would see 24 hours (and could see all...

    Can I get rid of books that are in "Purchased Books" in iBooks?

    I got some (free) books from the iTunes store that I do not want to have anymore. I deleted them on my iPad and synced in iTunes. The books have now disappeared from the "Purchased" section in iTunes but are still in the "Purchased Books" section in iBooks (with the little arrow in one corner...

    How to see all 24 hours of a day in Calendar at once

    On my iPad 3 with iOS 6.0.1 Calendar shows only 12 hours per day in Week or Day view. Can this be changed to see all 24 hours of a day at once?

    Calendar question: No repeating alerts possible?

    I started to sync iCal with Calendar. When in iCal (on my iMac) an alert pops up I can let this alert being repeated in 1 or 5 or 15 or 30 minutes, or in 1 or 2 hours, or when the event starts, or 1 hour before event starts ... and so on. To set such a repeated alert exactly two mouse clicks...

    My iPad plays music although no app is open

    Hello, My iPad3 is playing music although no app is running. Ok, right now I have a browser running. But the only window open is the one from ipadforums. And even if I quit the browser the music goes on. How can that happen?

    Is it possible to move the cursor within text?

    Is it possible to move the cursor character by character within text, i. e. to correct a single character in a Google search? I do not mean deleting characters with the back key, I mean moving the cursor within text without deleting.

    Ipad help

    How do you know OP has a provisioned modem and/or DSL? You're living on assumptions and give advise from there that can be harmful. I recently had to reset the router of a neighbor - and everything was gone and had to be put in again.

    Ipad help

    This can be a dangerous option because - depending on the router and the router setup - you might also loose the connection to your internet service provider. Don't do this unless you know how to set up the router to reconnect to your ISP.

    Ipad help

    Check the wifi settings on the router. It might be that only certain devices (with specific MAC addresses) are allowed to connect. In that case you have to add the MAC address of the iPad to that list. You can find the iPad's MAC address in the general settings (idiotically Apple lists the MAC...

    How to download files?

    This is confusing - because we are used to a "usable" file system as we know it from Mac OS X, and there is no such thing on the iPad (and all other iOS devices). It is even more confusing because neither the iPad nor most apps have reasonable manuals. The makers of these things - especially...

    Books to ibooks

    I just now installed the Kindle app on my iPad and will see then how it compares for me to iBooks. What do you like better in the Kindle app? Similar for me. I use calibre to manage all my books on my Mac and have them therefore also in the calibre library. PS (after installing the Kindle...

    Glad to have found this website (and some ideas for improvements)

    Hello, I'm glad that I found this website. There seems to be a lot of knowledge around here. I have an iPad3 and many questions. Some of them have already been answered here. Thanks for that! However, there are two things in particular that I find could be even better on this website. First...

    How to download files?

    Thanks. I found how to do it with Atomic - which is my main browser anyway. How do people usually find things like this out? I'm often wondering about the lack of in-depth instructions for the iPad and for basically all apps. I know that Apple has no interest in users having control over Apple...

    How to download files?

    I don't find any information on downloading files with an iPad. Could it be that this is not possible at all? For example: I frequently scan the new updates on macupdate.com, also with my iPad3. When I see an interersting (Mac OS X) program there I would like to be able to download the file...

    Cannot select words on the New York Times website

    Understandable when you're American (or British). I use the dictionary feature of the NYT not only to understand certain words but also to improve my English. It is a truly great feature! ... but obviously not available on the iPad. Thanks for all your input.

    Cannot select words on the New York Times website

    I always wondered about this statement. It is not my experience on the normal NYT website with a browser - whether with computer or with iPad. I can read as many articles as I want, both from the main page and from the section pages. Regarding the not-highlighting with the iPad - I don't see...

    Cannot select words on the New York Times website

    Why do you subscribe when anyway reading in a browser? I just did a test on my computer with two browsers next to each other - logged in with one browser (Firefox), not logged in with another browser (Safari). I cannot see any difference in my reading experience in both browsers.

    Cannot select words on the New York Times website

    I just signed up and paid for a website/iPad subscription for the NYT. With the NYT app I can now highlight words. However, with any browser highlighting still does not work (and I'm, of course, logged in). Is that normal, even for subscribers?

    Cannot select words on the New York Times website

    Hello Forum, One of the great features of the New York Times website (I mean the normal website, not the NYT app) is - when reading an article on the computer, not on the iPad3 - the possibility to highlight a word, click onto the little questionmark that appears next to the word, and then...

    Do I need push notifications?

    Hello Forum, Often when I install a new App on my iPad I get asked whether I want to allow that App or the service behind it to send me push notifications. So far I have always declined this because I basically prefer to decide by myself when I want to get anything onto my iPad (and mainly I...
