    No more buying books for Kindle app on ipad/iphone

    There is no hypocrisy; and I have a good understanding of the publishing business. It is no good just repeating "Amazon makes money off Apple." They don’t, any more than Esso makes money off GM whenever people fill up their Chevrolets. Equally, Apple won’t be making money off Amazon...

    No more buying books for Kindle app on ipad/iphone

    It is exactly what happens. The Kindle app and the availability of Kindle titles is a significant selling point for the iPad. Amazon operates on slender margins, which is why their titles are cheaper than others. It is unrealistic to suggest they would be able to fork over 30% of their...

    The Word Association Game - The Right Rules

    When worthless nonsense degenerates into coarseness and vulgarity, it's time to call a halt to it. Members can find something more worthwhile to do with their time. Thread closed.

    Two threads merged. Messi1580... please do not post the same question in two places on the forum. It causes unnecessary confusion and duplication of effort, and is a contravention of Rule 4.

    Being driven insane by my ipad beeping

    Interesting problem, but it's quite understandable that it's driving you crazy. All I can think is that you must have accidentally changed a setting at some stage. Try going through all your settings, such as alarms, notifications etc to see if there's something there. Either that, or there's a...

    what technical advice? Does "Don't upgrade" count as technical advice?

    No more buying books for Kindle app on ipad/iphone

    Huh? How do you do iOS updates if you don't use iTunes? :confused: But you make a good point - do I have to take some particular step to prevent iTunes installing App updates? I usually update them via the App Store. I've never noticed iTunes doing it.

    No more buying books for Kindle app on ipad/iphone

    What do you do if you accumulate a whole bunch of apps you don't want to update? It could end up being quite annoying. Is there a way you can reject the update so you don't see it on the list any more?

    That's good news - thanks! Now all I have to remember is not to use the "update all" option in the App Store.

    alternative to i tunes

    drsas, if you are trying to find an alternative method of stealing Apps, as you did in your other thread, you will receive no help from anyone here. And if you ask this question or a similar one again, you will be forcibly ejected from this forum. Thread closed.

    No more buying books for Kindle app on ipad/iphone

    I'm going to leave this BS "update" uninstalled. Next time I buy a book, I'll use the app as previously, to see whether the old version still works. I'll report back if it still works as before - or has someone already tried it?

    Want to use my IPAD in Italy

    It's useful to have offline maps installed on your iPad in case you can't get a 3G signal. There's an app called CityMaps2Go which is good - it costs $1.99, but that is a one-time payment and you then have free access to their entire database of 1,000s of cities worldwide - you can download as...

    TIPS AND TRICKS - for those of us who don't know!

    It's worth clearing them out every now and then. Also, whenever you notice an app acting up a bit and not behaving quite as normal, closing it and then reopening it only takes a few seconds and almost always solves the problem.

    If the thread appears fragmented, it is because a few posts have been removed for various Rule violations. 3 posts made in the thread by Gzoladz remain here to illustrate just one aspect of his disregard for the Rules of this board. 3 others, which included violations of Rules 3, 10 and 11...

    Safari - "page reload" issue

    That is an excellent link, and a very convincing demonstration. Does it mean the iPad 2 NEVER has this 'page reload' problem? If so, it's almost enough to persuade me to upgrade now, rather than wait for the iPad 3 next year...

    Safari - "page reload" issue

    Good explanation, Tim. It's one of the most annoying things about Safari that it refreshes a page when you don't want it to. I have an iPad 1, and it does it the whole time. Is the problem slightly less on the iPad 2, with its extra memory?

    Burley89... you came within a whisker of being banned for posting that advert, but I've looked at your other posts and I think you meant no mischief here. Please read the Rules, and be careful about what links you post.

    Maximum apps?

    How many apps do you have? Do you realise you can create more pages for the extra ones? All you have to do is "press and hold" on an app, wait until they all start wobbling, then drag one of them to the right hand edge of the screen. It will move on to a new page.

    Why are you not jailbreaking?

    The thread is mostly good-natured and useful, with constructive contributions from both sides of the JB divide. However, some argumentative off topic posts have had to be removed, and a couple more have required editing. I would like to point out to members that quite apart from the fact that...
