    Best stylus for ipad

    I have the TruGlide Duo stylus. I like the fiber tip, it seems smaller than the others, it has a good feel, and I like the pen that uses pilot refills on the other end. I had a stylus that stopped work, the fiber became detached and the company replaced it, no hassles. I am also curious about...

    iTunes/iPad sync issue

    Whenever I sync my iPad (version 1, with iOS 5.0.1), I get a message that 1 item could not sync, check iTunes for further info. I can't seem to find anywhere in iTunes what this issue is. I do have a TV show sneak peek I downloaded on the iPad, then deleted, but it is still showing up on my...

    Best note taking app for iPad

    Question for Notify users. If I already own WritePad, will I have to buy it again if I get Notify? I like WritePad, but it is too limited, no freehand writing. I have tried PhatPad, but it seems clumsy. Thinking about trying Notify and want the handwriting recognition.

    Need Help

    My hard disk on an old PC computer has crashed. Not sure if it is recoverable, still being looked at. I am now using my son's computer (who is in college with a new laptop). I have all the music I purchased from iTunes already in the library. But I have two thousand songs that I ripped from...

    Which is the best stylus for iPad

    I just got the AYL stylus. It also has a roller ball pen. I really like it. It works great. I had been using the Hard Candy stylus, but the caps have become loose in less than 1 year's worth of moderate use, the stylus does not have a pocket clip, and the caps do not fit on the other ends of...

    Outlook for Ipad

    Mail, Contacts and calendar work well with native iPad apps. If your IT people allow Outlook to sync to mobile devices. Tasks require a third party app. I use TaskTask. It works well.

    Best note taking app for iPad

    Take a look at Phatpad. It is by the same company as Writepad and allow drawing and handwritten notes. Plus it does recognition. I am still holding out hope for an iPad version of OneNote. But I have to admit, hope is fading.

    Same here. I finally gave up and started using MyPad. Right now, I think I like MyPad better. I like the Twitter like interface. Kept Friendly on my iPad, try to use every once and a while, but it just does not seem to want to work right.

    Alternative to "The Funnies" available?

    The Houston Chronicle has a great comics website and you can customize the ones you want. The problem I have with everything is that it takes the Houston Chronicle, Go Comics and to get most of the comics I was getting with the Funnies. Too much effort, when it was so nice before...

    Best To Do / List App

    I use TaskTask because it syncs very nicely with Exchange server. I can then use Outlook and the iPad for tasks. Keeps everything nicely in sync. I am not a big task/to do list maker, so this fits my needs. I do wish both Outlook and TaskTask would allow for subtasks in an outline type format.

    OneNote for iPad?!

    I down loaded OneNote on my iPad. It is terrible. You have to run it as 2x app, and it blurs the typing. It is basically a viewer for the OneNote notebooks you have stored on the web. Requires OneNote 2010 for it to work. No handwriting, no markups, no web clipping. Typing only and then...

    Well, looks like this app is dead. Most of the comics I follow on it no longer update. The website is gone. The app is gone from the App Store. Too bad. This was one app I used every day. Gonna miss it. :(
  14. C


    Oh, I would love to see this. OneNote itself, with its full functionality not the wimpy one in the app store now, would be the killer app for iPad. But don't hold your breath. The mobile office suite will be for Windows 8, which is being developed for a mobile platform. I don't see a fully...

    QuickOffice and DropBox

    Anyone else having problems with QuickOffice saving files that are in DropBox. I can open the files, make changes, save the file and close it. I can see the changes on the PC, but not if I open through QuickOffice. It is like the iPad is loading a "cached" version, not the most up-to-date...

    Notepad OCR App?

    +1 for Writepad. The handwriting recognition is very good if you write large and slow. Like you were taught in 2nd-3rd grade. And it gets better the more you use it.

    What Happened to The Funnies by AFK Studios

    Any word what happened to this app? It is no longer on iTunes Many of the comic strips are no longer updating and the company is no longer on the web? I can't seem to find any information. I am wondering if they got into some copyright issues with the comic strip publishers. Is too bad...

    looking at wine cellar apps

    I used Drync on the iPhone, but they don't have an iPad version. Tried wine cellar HD, but did not like it as much. I have not found anything for iPad I am willing to pay money for as of yet. I hope others have suggestions.

    Which app to get for basic Word and Excel editing?

    QuickOffice had worked well for me, I don't do a ton of editing. Just simple stuff. Also like it's file management and favorites function to be able to work on documents while on a plane or other places that I am offline. Integrates with DropBox nicely also.

    Looking for good Task or To Do App

    So far TaskTask has worked great for me. Perfectly synchs with Outlook. Had a little trouble setting it up, but turned out to be a company issue.

    Agreed. Great app. Now if the would get Spiderman daily, I would have all my daily strips in one place.

    Apple Making a Mistake?

    Maybe, maybe not. The 30% cut is what might scare a few providers off. Or cause an increase in the price of the books. I see this as a possible power play between Apple and Amazon. If I was Amazon, I would call their bluff. Pull my app. And what as people throw a fit. Apple just does not...

    Apple Making a Mistake?

    Let's hope that what is reported in the article does not come to fruition. Apple Rejects Sony Reader App Over In-App Purchases. Kindle Next? | Epicenter| I think this was a big mistake, and if the Kindle app goes, would be a huge mistake for Apple. With the onslaught of Android...

    What's the best Twitter Application ?

    I like TweetDeck on the PC. I have it loaded on the iPad, but still use the official app more. If TweetDeck would give the same option to get the Facebook feed on iPad as it has on the PC, it would become my primary app.

    Tasks - Sync with Outlook

    I have not tried it, but loading a task app then synch through iTunes should do it. I don't think there is a way to "push" things from Outlook without and exchange server. You can also set up Google Sync, and then synch everything from Gmail. I was doing that for a while at home.

    Tasks - Sync with Outlook

    Richard, Go to the General Settings and tap on Mail. Then tap on the account that is your exchange server. The settings that are listed (Domain, server name, etc) are what I used and it worked perfectly. Scott

    Tasks - Sync with Outlook

    I was trying to use the settings in my Outlook as the server settings. I then thought about looking at the settings the iPad mail program was using for retrieving mail and used them and TaskTask started working. Turns out at my work, the web based mail is what the phones/iPads/etc use to...

    Tasks - Sync with Outlook

    I just bought Task Task today. So far works great. I had difficulty at first configuring it to the Exchange server at work. But once I figured it out, works like a champ. Both tasks and flagged tasks are there, categories, dates, etc. So far it has been worth the money.

    This works! Targus Stylus for Apple® iPad™

    I received a Hard Candy stylus as a Christmas present. So far, I really like it. It has a pen on one end and a iPad/iPhone stylus on the other. Has 2 drawbacks. 1. The caps don't fit on the other ends when they are removed. You have to be careful not to lose them. To me this is a basic...
