    Tapmedia's File Manager app malfunction

    Nope, don't have the CD eject button on my Logitech keyboard so can't try that fix. Right now I am using the workaround mentioned in my previous post. Thanks for your response.

    Tapmedia's File Manager app malfunction

    I did come up with a somewhat cumbersome workaround. After typing or editing text in FileManager I found that if I then turn off the bluetooth keyboard, the "save" function button reappears on FileManager and I am able to save the document using the iPad's touch screen. I then have to turn...

    Tapmedia's File Manager app malfunction

    I have been using FileManager by Tapmedia on my iPad to create and edit text files. All was working well until Tapmedia changed their text editor from standard text to RTF(Rich Text Format). Now when I use my bluetooth keyboard with my iPad, the app does not allow me to save or cancel, whereas...

    Password Managers

    Thanks for the feedback on password managers, they were very helpful. Because I use three devices(iPad and two pc's) to access sites that require passwords do I then need to purchase three of the same password managers, one for each device?

    Password Managers

    Due to recent internet security breaches I was looking into commercially available password managers/protection options. One such service is 1Password, but when I read more about it, it seemed quite complicated and I wasn't sure I could manage it. I was wondering if others had found ways to...

    Thanks for the suggestions. Will give a try.

    File Sharing, Again.

    Gave up on Apple's File Sharing. Instead found a solution thru the File Manager app. It allows you to compress a file/document into a zip file and email it. It did this on the iPad2, and then when I opened the file in the email on my Mini, it gave me the option of saving it to the File...

    File Sharing, Again.

    I have the File Manager App on my iPad2 and iPad Mini. I enter the documents on the iPad2 but want to transfer them to the iPad Mini. I have tried the File Sharing feature on iTunes. I have the files from the app backed up on my computer, but when I try the file sharing process where you can...

    Ipad 2 has gone haywire!

    Thanks for your help. Tried them all. The last one worked. Hope I don't have to do this again!

    Ipad 2 has gone haywire!

    Thanks, will give them a try. I have also noticed about a dozen or more apps that are in a perpetual "waiting" mode(all on my home screen-none are showing in Updates in the App Store). This all occurred after my last update in the App Store.

    Ipad 2 has gone haywire!

    For some reason I had French and English as keyboards. So I deleted the French keyboard and that eliminated the azerty configuration. Don't know how French was added as a keyboard. However, my homepage on the iPad still shows several apps as updating, whereas all apps in the App Store are...

    Locating and viewing files on iTunes

    Figured it out. Went to iTunes filesharing and selected the app I wanted to copy files from. I then selected all the files on that app that I wanted copies of which then allowed me to copy them to my computer by selecting "Add to".

    Locating and viewing files on iTunes

    How do I locate and view files that I have backed up from my iPad to iTunes? I believe I have done this before and have seen the files that I transferred from an app to iTunes, but for the life of me I cannot find out how to do this again when I am on iTunes. Thanks.

    iTunes file sharing problem with iPad

    Good to know, thanx. I should have learned by now that when you have a problem, unplug and start over!

    iTunes file sharing problem with iPad

    I unplugged my iPad from my computer, and when I reconnected it, the "File Sharing is off" message had disappeared and I was able to transfer files from my apps to my computer. Still don't understand why File Sharing was off and why unplugging the iPad resolved it.

    iTunes file sharing problem with iPad

    I have a number of apps that support file sharing on iTunes. One is FileManager which has many documents I have created. When I connect the iPad to my computer and open iTunes I can click on FileManager and see a list of the documents I have created. However, iTunes says that "File Sharing is...

    Backing up data on iCloud

    How then does one back up the data contained, say, in my FileManager app? I have backed-up my iPad to my laptop via iTunes and see the FileManager app on the apps screen in iTunes. But where is the data in those apps? I am unable to view it on my laptop computer. I know how to back up files...

    Backing up data on iCloud

    I noticed that my FileManager app does not show up under the Backup Options in the iCloud Manage Storage section in Settings. Are some apps not compatible with iCloud storage? If so, too bad, because this would be the type of data that would be useful to backup.

    Sharing between ipad 2 and ipad mini

    Think I have it. Thanks. When I did the backup I could not find my Kindle books as having been backed up to iTunes on my pc. I now assume that in order to read my Kindle books from another device I would have to sync that device to my Amazon account thru the Kindle app on that device.

    Sharing between ipad 2 and ipad mini

    So, would I connect my ipad 2 to my pc then on iTunes right click on the device(ipad) and select "Backup"? After doing this would I then connect my ipad mini to the pc, go to iTunes, right click on the device and select "Restore"? Thanks.

    Sharing between ipad 2 and ipad mini

    I currently have an ipad 2 and would like to get an ipad mini for greater portability, trips, etc... My question is, would I be able to read the same books I have downloaded to the ipad 2 on the mini? I have purchased most thru Amazon and use the Kindle reader app on the ipad. Also I am...

    wifi keeps switching to another router

    I do see where the wifi signal does fluctuate, however it always looks like the nearby routers have even a lower signal strength than my home router. I wonder if there is a way to have the iPad remain with the "home" router even if other networks occasionally may have a stronger signal? Thanks.

    wifi keeps switching to another router

    Just have the one router, so that isn't the problem. My modem/router is from CenturyLink, the Q1000. Called their tech support and they changed the channel setting to #11, saying it provides the strongest signal. Didn't know each channel had a different signal strength. Will see how that...

    wifi keeps switching to another router

    I have a password protected router for my home wifi. I have a couple of neighbors who have unprotected routers. Lately I have discovered that my wifi connection is occasionally switching to one of the neighbors routers. In "Settings" I have tried using the "forget this network" but that...

    downloading stopped

    What I didn't understand was how huge the video podcast files were, I.e. around 450MB. So understandably it could take an hour or more to download several. I just did not wait long enough for the process to complete.

    downloading stopped

    Just wanted to add that nothing will "install", when you try to download a new app or update current ones.

    downloading stopped

    I was downloading some video podcasts, then tried to update six apps when the downloading process stopped completely. I "rebooted" the iPad then tried again with no luck. Not sure what to do next. Anyone had this problem?

    Ipad's Videos app stopped working

    Thanks. That may have worked. I also realized that Apple has separated it's Podcast app from the Videos app, and it may have left my last video podcast on the Videos app where it got "stuck" and would crash the app. When I launched the new Podcast app both apps seemed to work properly.

    Ipad's Videos app stopped working

    The Videos app has "frozen" on one of my video podcasts. It will play that video but nothing else, none of my movies, etc. When I try to go to Movies it exits the app.

    does bluetooth enabled device drain ipad battery?

    I guess that is what's happening, as when I turned off BT on the iPad, the battery did not drain rapidly. I don't think the Logitech keyboard turns off automatically after not being used for awhile. When I manually shut it off the BT symbol on the iPad screen does disappear. So guess I'll...

    does bluetooth enabled device drain ipad battery?

    I recently purchased a Logitech solar powered keyboard/case for my iPad2. I noticed that after leaving it in the closed case for a few hours that the iPad battery was soon depleted. There were no instructions stating that the bluetooth needed to be turned off when not in use. My question is...
