    what is the best email to texting app for my ipad

    Why "email to text" vs just a dedicated texting app? My guess is you wouldn't need a phone number - if so you typically get a free number within the app. I use "GV Connect" - google voice connect. It's not a google app yet uses your google account info etc Cheers

    Gorilla Glass

    Well, I see the passion to protect or not protect is still alive and well. :-) I'm like others here, I could basically care less what others say. Depending on the topic I too place much more weight on my personal experience and those close to me over unknowns. We've had as many as 5 iPads in...

    My battery was fully charged when i recieved my ipad?

    "Rubbish" you say? :-) Not quite that bad. I would say approx 70-80% of previous gen iPads. For the OP, both of our new iPads came with 92% charge on the battery. Cheers

    TIPS AND TRICKS - for those of us who don't know!

    Correct, some context files are left (thus some RAM use) for faster recall yet the app is not "running" as I would call it. Deleting each from the task bar will remove any remaining context info. Cheers

    TIPS AND TRICKS - for those of us who don't know!

    All apps are stopped / closed with a complete power down. Just like when you reboot a PC. You are correct however, the icons will remain in the task bar. His question however was how to close all at once. Cheers

    I believe you misread Zipur's post. He was questioning the poster above him for criticizing the thread.

    TIPS AND TRICKS - for those of us who don't know!

    You can just power the iPad down completely every week... That clears it as well. But of course your 15 year old should have known that.... Cheers

    Anyone feel that ipad3 battery dropping faster than ipad2?

    Why yes, :-) - considering not only is the battery more than twice the mAh/Ah yet it was also marketed to maintain the same battery prowess as the 1st and 2nd gen. Maybe we'll luck out and a software update will correct it a bit.. - Regardless, I would never give up the 4G. All but one of...

    Anyone feel that ipad3 battery dropping faster than ipad2?

    Maybe there is an issue with yours due to you being the minority..... :-) Both my daughter and I have the 3rd gen and both drop significantly faster than our two other iPads. For example: I started out with 51% this morning and after "maybe" 45 minutes of actual powered up time I now have...

    Anyone feel that ipad3 battery dropping faster than ipad2?

    Initially I thought the battery life was going to be equal to our other iPads. I have since been convinced that is not the case. I use my new 3rd gen the exact same as my previous and barely get two days of use from a charge when I used to get 3 or 4. I agree with a few posts above: Gen 3...

    Speedtest SLOW numbers

    Why be "satisfied"? If something is wrong question it with the appropriate source. If other devices/PCs "both" wired and wireless get the same download performance yet your iPad gets significantly less there is obviously something wrong. Check your speeds off another router/wifi, maybe with a...

    Speedtest SLOW numbers

    Either a hardware problem, config issue or you're trolling..... Your final comment points long and hard at trolling. We have 4 pads in the house, 1st gen through 3rd gen. All report the same down/up speeds via wifi that all three hardwired home PC's exhibit. If you are legitimate, you may...

    Black or white iPad 2?

    That's a known and published effect. That's why near all flat panel TVs have dark or black bezels/frames. Bothers some more than others. I don't own a white yet like the white.. :-)

    Black or white iPad 2?

    Mine have all been black. My daughter wanted her new iPad to be white. I'll admit I do like it, looks great in a bright colored case. Cheers

    Do you regret not purchasing 3G/4G

    The key "point" to point out is check the coverage for the states/cities you frequent, research and choose the best plan etc. if AT&T listed all the cities that you could receive LTE the numbers would be just as great. IE, LTE is in Dallas yet they could have listed possibly 50 cities within a...

    Is the new screen that big of a deal?

    Faster charging can many times lead to decreased battery life. I would think if it was that easy they would of packaged it with a 20 watt etc. Then again, maybe they wanted to keep the accessories the same.. To benefit Apple and customer Or, we may very well see some aftermarket wall bricks...

    Its official, some new iPads have problems

    One would think after about the third return that the store/management would QC it prior to it leaving the store. IE - make sure said customer was satisfied prior to leaving as in before it's even rung up.. And here I thought I was anal/picky... :-)

    Who's made the jump from 1st gen to 3rd gen?

    Location definitely can be a factor. When it really comes down to it however, keeping sight of what an iPad, iPhone or any rendition of phone or tablet that is capable of LTE are used for... Real world activities/operations would be hard pressed to benefit from the differences. I doubt...

    iPad 3 a big let down plus iPad 4 wish list

    Actually you are both right - so very right.... :-) For many it will come down to the fact they cannot justify it due to the budget. Nothing wrong with that and I respect them for not going for the "want" vice a "need". Should they post a bunch of fluff / bad mouth a device because of it...

    Argh I'm getting antsy!

    I hear ya, I walked out of a Walmart at 1215 AM on the 16th with my 64gb into a near empty/dark parking lot. My first thought was getting jumped by someone knowing folks would be purchasing them at 1201 that morning etc. Crossing fingers yours arrives today OP!

    Some New iPad Users Complaining of Poor Wi-Fi Reception

    Strange that your download is great yet your upload speed is so low. Typical service with 40Mbps down would at least have a 2-5 or more Mbps upload. My low end cable service is 10mbps down and 1.5mbps up for comparison. Could be normal yet you may want to question it etc. Cheers

    Dropbox Question

    Definitely perform that function on your PC. Extremely easy to do - I do not have it loaded on our iMac, yet my W7 machine is as easy as dragging/dropping or cutting/pasting between folders. Just organize your Dropbox folder (on your PC) like you want to see it on your iPad. Cheers

    Argh I'm getting antsy!

    Well, we are all pulling for ya that all is well! Me however, I think the filming idea is great - I have done the same so if you can make that happen I would. Hopefully it will all be wasted time/effort however.... :-) Fingers crossed it arrives today/soonest. Cheers

    Anyone feel that ipad3 battery dropping faster than ipad2?

    Same results here. First week i was only getting about 6-7 hrs out of a full charge, full gamut of use - 4G, LTE, wifi brightness etc. After two "full" discharges as in to 0% and power shutdown then overnight recharges, it appears much better. Like today, full charge last night and have used...

    iPad for 76 year old Mom

    Who's made the jump from 1st gen to 3rd gen?

    3G and 4G data service in the states is hit or miss. For the most part it works well where available and is definitely usable. I never did test its speed specifically yet would guess its in the 250kbps at best average etc. LTE service, I am amazed with. Yesterday sitting at my daughters...

    Who's made the jump from 1st gen to 3rd gen?

    Did not consider the jump to the iPad 2 yet jumped on the 3 at 1201 AM day of launch... :-) The display is nice yet the overall performance increase from iPad 1 to "the new" is significant. And if you live in an LTE environment and are a data plan user,,, huge jump - its faster than my 10mbps...

    Netfix keeps pausing?

    I would suspect that this is a wifi connection issue not the iPad. Are you utilizing 3G or local wifi? In your home, office or other? Not all wifi connections are created equal. You may have a great signal yet throughput can be severely limited. Streaming video like Netflix is demanding and...

    iPad for 76 year old Mom

    An iPad 2 could definitely be the way to go. I do a lot of low-light reading and the iPad 3, however a great screen, doesn't have the contrast as the 2 when screen brightness is at min. For "older" eyes the 2 could prove better. On the other side, if she wears reading glasses (I don't...

    Checked both my me iPad a my 1st gen iPad on my home wifi. Both had near identical results given several speedtest.net runs. Cheers I do notice my "bars" on wifi tend to fluctuate more on the 3rd gen than I remember my first gen indicating in the house. ? Cheers
