    Safari: under ios8 new annoying problem..

    I love the way Safari works now. I don't need the tabs and bar at the top all the time I am on a page. I also love the way you can pinch and see all open pages.

    Bits and Pieces of iOS 8 Scattered All Over The Place

    Thanks, I will keep trying. I was using standard fonts so it must be something else I am doing wrong.

    Thanks for responding. No, I want to increase the size rather than decrease it. The image I used was ok but the text got blurry for some reason. I will keep trying.

    Selecting resolution pdf files Pages

    I have seen on other threads that when exporting a Pages poster or brochure as a PDF file, you can pick the level of quality but I do not get that option. I create my document, go to share, send a copy, select pdf and an email window opens up with no option to select quality or resolution. Can...

    Webdesign and editing app

    I am relocating and will not have a computer or webdesign program when I first arrive. I designed a website using Dreamweaver and may need to make some minor changes on my ipad. Is this possible? I do not use HTML. All the apps I see seem to require coding. Any advice would be most appreciated.

    Am I mistaken?

    I also use bold in settings on my ipad mini and that helps with notes and some other apps.

    iOS 7.0.4 is out now

    I don't see any difference in the wallpaper problem with the update! The only way that SOMETIMES works is to select photo, take a screen shot in portrait mode, go to camera roll, select screen shot and set to wallpaper. Sometimes it works, sometimes it does not! Sent from my iPad using iPF

    Itunes gift certificates

    Have been using gift certificates to purchase apps, films, etc from the store but have now entered credit card details. However, is someone sends me a gift certificate and I redeem it, will itunes debit that rather than my credit card please?

    Expired rented videos still showing up in Video app

    Thanks for the information on turning off cloud purchases...did not know that! I have turned them off and of course the rented videos have gone. Turning on brings them back but maybe they will disappear eventually! Meanwhile I am very happy to have all cloud purchases hidden! Thanks again!

    Expired rented videos still showing up in Video app

    Since upgrading, my expired rented videos still show in my video app with a cloud in the bottom right hand corner. I used to be able to delete videos once I had watched them but there is no longer an edit button to do so in ios7. Are they going to sit there forever, please?

    iCloud as default Notes account

    Even though I have tried other notes apps, I always come back to the Native Notes app on my devices. No frills but easy to access from each device. I previously had gmail as my default account to backup the notes on but having recently needed to access from my icloud account, I want to change...

    Is it possible to Remove 'Swipe' Opening Screen on iPad 2 w/ iOS 7

    Funnily enough my devices have started doing this, bypassing lock screen and going straight to home screen or last page visited. None of them are jail broken. I kind of miss seeing my lock screen wallpaper!

    Not enough space for iOS 7 on iPad mini

    I had to temporarily remove some music from both my mini and my iphone to upgrade. Having upgraded I then put back on the music by connecting to itunes and selecting the playlists I wanted.

    Not upgrading to ios 7

    I know you say you have no intention of upgrading but do reconsider! All three of my devices are working beautifully with on ios7. And if it is the appearance that you do not like, by changing backgrounds and so on, you can tweak it to make it more to your liking. That reminder to update would...

    iOS 7 on iPad 2

    I love the new ios! It works well on my ipad 2, my ipad mini and my iPhone 4S. Have not had any real problems at all. The only thing I have noticed if I go to the App Store or itunes, I get a 'cannot connect to store' message but it goes away and all is well. Small glitch compared to what many...

    IOS 7 Tomorrow On Not iPad Mini

    I saw an article that said that too. I so hope it is correct though I can see why Apple might only make those apps available for new devices. Fingers crossed for Wednesday's update!

    I'm totally new to Apple! Looking for help from the O.G's! Apple 101.

    How we use our ipads is very personal. I use mine to check email, browse the web, listen to music, watch TV via VPN, check weather reports, read books sometimes, edit photos, make a note of reminders and write notes. I love idevices because all my notes and reminders appear on my other devices...

    TV Shows on IPAD

    All the time! You can subscribe to Netflix or watch on BBC1Player, ITV etc for UK shows. Not sure how to stream from US shows.

    Don't forget VPN's are not only good to watch TV, but also to give you anonymity when on a public wifi. Sent from my iPad using iPF

    You are welcome, Andrew! It is nice to be able to have reached a point of being able to help others rather than asking for help! This forum is a great place to visit!

    Yeah! that is so good to hear! Sometimes it is just one tiny error (and we all make them!) that prevents a successful connection. Now, sit back and enjoy!

    Please can someone try and help me?

    It is a few months since I set mine up and I would have to look later to see how to do it again! You would need your own password to access your control panel on your Mac. Just google HMA control panel and log in. You will then see PPTP in the list on the left hand side. If I remember correctly...

    Please can someone try and help me?

    I set mine up some time ago on Windows but it should be a similar process on a Mac. When you have it set up on your Mac, go to your control panel, using your user name and password to find an IP address which you will use as your server information when you configure your ipad VPN. Then follow...
