    Does the iPad print?

    If you don't have an AirPrint enabled printer there is another solution that works very well. On a Windows machine install a program called "FingerPrint" which will allow you to print to any printer(s) attached to that Windows machine or any network printer that the Windows machine can access...

    notetaking app that i can use on IPAD, and then can access on my pc (windows 7)

    Evernote for sure. It may take you several uses of it before you realise just part of its potential, don't give up on it too soon. Evernote is my core, but just recently I've been using Drafts for actually writing my notes then using Drafts' built-in option to send a note to Evernote which...

    Using an iPad 3G while travelling in the USA - a review

    You might perhaps try RoamMobility.Com It is specifically designed for Canadians travelling to the States but might perhaps also work in your case. Worth contacting them to see. Their prices are reasonable for us Canadians when compared to what Canadian companies charge us for roaming in the...

    No sound on ios6?

    . Add me to those who have lost system sounds on my iPad after upgrading to iOS 6. I tried the recommendations above, no success. Anyone else got more suggestions to recover system sounds?

    Emails on iPad with .pps attachments?

    Thanks! Actually I feel pretty stupid, I normally use Atomic Browser and just never thought to try Safari.

    Emails on iPad with .pps attachments?

    How does one view email attachments that come with attachments that have a .pps filename extension? I understand they're PowerPoint Slideshow files but how does one view them on an iPad?

    Winnipeg jets fan living in Australia

    Geelong Cats fan living in Canada! Well, used to be a Cats fan but haven't been following them much for some time. You've got to admit that Aussie Rules is a lot more fun than all those concussions with hockey! Nothing like a finals game at the MCG with 100,000+ fans!:D And I still...

    Who wants to write on his own photo??

    To answer your question, until today I would have said "Captions", with the green icon, more features than the one with the blue icon, by BigBluePixel. However as of today I'd have to recommend "Skitch" by the folks who produce Evernote. Skitch is free, does not have as many features as...

    Very small email notification annoyance

    Its a small annoyance, but ... ... ... When a new email arrives the bar at the very top of the screen rolls over to give a brief summary of the email, stays there for a second or two, then rolls away, THEN there's a sound played. What happens with me is that I don't notice the roll...

    Why it would be neat to have Microsoft Office on the iPad

    I guess it all depends what you mean by "the app". If you look at the Apple app it's actually $30; it's $10 for each of the three (3) parts that make up the equivalent of "MS Office". Will MS end up by releasing "Office", or will they release several separate portions, Word, Excell...

    How do I teather with my nolia n8?

    I can confirm that JoikuSpot (I have the "Pro" version) works fantastically to tether an iPad to a Nokia N8! In fact I took my Nokia N8 to the local Apple Store and insisted on testing it out with JoikuSpot and an iPad before I'd buy the iPad. The folks at the Apple store were totally open...

    iPad 2 wifi or iPad 2 wifi + 3G

    Like many I had the same choice to make. After a LOT of thought I went for the 3G and planned NOT to get a data plan. For me it turns out to be a great decision. I have never put a SIM card in my iPad and probably never will, but if at some time in the future, say travelling in another...

    PDF from flatbed scanner

    I use VueScan in the AppStore by with my HP printer/scanner and am quite happy with it. It's a "+" so will run on both the iPad and iPhone. Can't recall how much it cost, must have been about $5 I think.

    iPad suction mount. Is it safe?

    Check out the thread: "Best car mount on the market for any tablet" (Sorry, I don't know how to include a link to a specific message.) I've just posted a reply on this very thing. Yes, suction cup windshield iPad mounts can work, if you get the right one. My first purchase was bad...

    Best Car mount on the market for any tablet

    "Best" car mount? "Best" is always such a subjective term. I did a lot of research before buying a car mount for my iPad, then returned it as it was useless! Then ordered another which really suits my needs. I got a RAMMount with the 'ToughGuy II' clamp for the iPad and dual windshield...

    What kind of car mount do you use?

    It's a GREAT idea! As a replacement GPS with a 10" screen I find it a lot safer than a 3" or 4" GPS. My iPad is in a solid holder that I can see easily with a quick glance then my eyes are back on the road. With any other tiny-screen GPS I have to take just a fraction longer to see the...

    Does the iPad keyboard annoy you?

    It doesn't really annoy me but: I find it easier to use with a stylus rather than my finger. I don't use the split keypad as much as I was expecting to. I would REALLY like to see a version of Swype for the iPad and the iPhone.

    can we print from the ipad???

    I tried a couple of apps on the iPad but got rid of them all once I installed the $10 Fingerprint on my computer, nothing to install on your iPad, it just sees all your printers when you go to print. Nothing could be easier nor more idiot-proof! The one drawback, and for some people a big...

    What kind of car mount do you use?

    I use the RAMMount with dual windshield suction cups. Solid as a rock. Purchased it from MountGuys web site. Not cheap but got it after I'd tried and returned a cheaper flimsier mount that just would not stay in place. I went for the dual suction cups as the thought of a single cup loosing its...

    FingerPrint to AirPrint to your computer

    Never heard of Printopia, will have to check it out. I use FingerPrint on a Win-7-64 computer and it sees and will print to an AirPrint HP printer, can use duplex, no big deal as it is AirPrint and would print anyway. But it will also see and use an old non-AirPrint network connected...

    Back up battery for iPad 2

    I just went and checked their web site. The model I'm talking about that charges the iPad is called "USB TurboCharger 5000". I'd post the link but I don't think that's allowed here. I find the 6 inch Apple/USB cable from USBFever more practical than the spring-loaded retractable cable that...

    move notes created in Evernote app from iPad2 to Windows machine without Wi-Fi

    Have you tried asking this question on Evernote's web site? Either their forums or their tech support. I've had to use their tech support a couple of times and they've been great. I'm a "Premium" user of Evernote so don't know if that helps getting a quick full reply compared to a free user of...

    Back up battery for iPad 2

    As the other reply mentioned, the iPad can be used for 8+ hours so you probably won't need a back up battery. But if you really want to be sure like me, then I'd recommend the Proporta 5000 mAh battery. They make a couple of battery back up units so make sure you double check to get the 5000 mAh...

    Connecting my iPad to Apple TV

    Oops, yes, you're right! And after writing my previous message I checked my Apple TV updates and it has now updated my OS to 4.4.2.

    Connecting my iPad to Apple TV

    Just to be clear: When you say "I am on the latest OS." you do mean the latest on BOTH the iPad AND the Apple TV, right? For mirroring to work it needs BOTH to be running the latest OSes! The latest OS for Apple TV came out about a week or so ago and, I think, is 4.4.1 You can check by...

    TomTom iPhone App Now Optimized for iPad

    I frequently use my iPad with Navigon or TomTom as a GPS in my car. I purchased a RamMount windshield kit from MountGuys. It came with a single suction cup so I purchased a dual suction cup part directly from RamMount. The kit has an arm that allows the iPad holder to be lower than the...

    Screen on while charging?

    But that's kind of the point, I want there to be a difference whether I'm charging or not. I definitely want to have an auto-screen-off when it's running off the battery, but I do NOT want an auto-screen-off when it's plugged in and charging. That way when I pop it into a stand beside my bed...

    Screen on while charging?

    Thanks for your reply. Yes, I was aware of the Auto-lock settings, but I was looking for an additional setting that controls what it will do while charging. I've seen this offered on other PDAs, laptops, and net books I've owned and used in the past. I'm looking for someway, without JB, to do...

    Screen on while charging?

    Is there a config option or setting anywhere that would let the screen stay on while it's charging? Or an app? I have the iPad 2! It's NOT JB. Thanks for any help.

    iPad 2: When to turn off vs. when to sleep

    It seems to me there is a LOT of confusion in threads like this that discuss "turning off" an iPad. People are talking about: 1 letting it time out and the screen going dark 2 pushing the button on the top edge 3 holding down the button on the top edge for several seconds then...

    Does anyone else think split keyboard is too small?

    YES! The split keyboard was one of the new features of iOS 5 I was most looking forward to but due to its size find I don't use it as much as I was expecting to. I also find it a lot easier to use in portrait mode than landscape, the opposite to what I was expecting.

    How to delete photos?

    It sounds to me you're looking at the thumbnails of the photos and have not actually clicked on the photo to open it. You have to open each individual photo one-by-one before the trash can appears.

    iOS5, iCloud, iWorks and the office...

    How do you set up WebDavNet on the iPad to access Box.Net? And can you do the same with Dropbox? I only know very little about this stuff, but I was able, following instructions, to configure WebDavNet to access one other service from my iPad.

    IOS5 - What are we most looking forward to?

    The two features I'm most looking forward to are the improved notifications and the splitable (new word?) keyboard. Currently I mainly use a Boxwave stylus for tapping and a Jot for more precision sketching and hand writing. However with the split keyboard, if it's as good as I hope, I can...

    Best note taking app for iPad

    I'm an EverNote fan also. In the app store there's an app called FastEver which seems to be some type of front end for EverNote but I can't work out what's the point of it. Anyone used it? Does it make entering notes into EverNote faster or easier? There's not a free lite version so don't...
