    Ipad music App

    I had a similar problem with the native Calendar app. It kept closing each time I opened it. Restored from back-up and all is working fine now.

    Calendar won't open after IOS5 update

    After the IOS5 update my calendar started acting erratically. I would tap on an event and the calendar would close. Now when I open the calendar it opens for a second or two and then closes. I live by my calendar and have not seen anything posted on this issue. I have tried various methods to...

    Do you own a iphone and an ipad?

    I have had an iPhone for a few years now (3G, 3GS, now 4) and an iPad since June 2010. I love having both iOS devices. I know that there is a lot of talk about sharing apps but I find that I use totally different apps for my iPhone and the iPad. Most of the iPhone apps are for on the go (maps...

    I certainly hope that there is a level of freedom of speech here. Forums, by nature, are for users to express their valid but often controversial or unpopular opinions. What I think you meant is that moderators have the right to edit those who have crossed the line or are not following the...

    Streaming movies from PC to IPAD over wireless

    I not sure why all these apps are being recommended for a function that is already available with iTunes and no special apps. Use the Sharing function of iTunes instead of 3rd party apps to stream your movies from your PC to the iPad. It works perfectly!!!

    Is a wireless keyboard worth getting?

    +1 for the Kensington iPad cover/keyboard combination. Have been using it since Father's Day. The remarkable thing about it is the battery life of the keyboard. Quite impressive!

    I feel your frustration with the release of the iPad2 shortly after you purchased your iPad one. Unfortunately, technology is only going to move faster in the near future. Be prepared for many such disappointments. The newest, greatest techno-widget you buy today will be outmoded tomorrow.

    Storage for movies

    Most cloud or web services will cost you $. There are lots of these available, including iCloud from Apple (coming soon). I'm not interested in them so have no experience or additional input concerning them. My solution to the problem, GoFlex, works perfectly for me. I currently have 52 movies...

    Tracking Bank transactions App

    Not sure if this is what you are looking for but I use "Checkbook Free for iPad" which has an option to change your monetary system to almost any in the world. I also like that you can share it between devices. Checkbook HD Free for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad on the iTunes App Store

    For those of us who use Netflix less frequently there is nothing good about the price increase. I use to pay $7.99 for a single DVD and unlimited streaming. Now they want to charge me $15.98 for the same service. Sorry, this is corporate greed at it's finest from a company that cares absolutely...

    Infinity Blade - Is it worth the money?

    I played the daylights out of it for the longest time. Leveled up to 49 and then the game sort of lost it's luster. They added the Arena and I was put off that I had to keep repurchasing equipment every time I played. To answer your question though - yes, it is worth the price. One of the big...

    Cancelled my subscription to Netflix with the new policy change. Won't ever go back, either. There are too many other video options out there to choose from. And besides, truth be told? Most of Netflix's movie choices were either very old or very B rated.
