    iOS 7 on iPad 2

    I've downloaded IOS 7.0 and I hate it! With IOS 6.0, when you switched on. You got the time and date and the unlock slide bar. Now you have to slide the whole page to unlock! When I open Google now, I get avatars of all my bookmarks showing! why? If I want to change backgrounds with a picture...

    Saving pictures from facebook

    And then, using almost any Photo editor app, you can crop the saved picture to get rid of all the 'stuff' around the edge.

    No internet on ipad.

    Actually, the problem is sorted now. I initially reset everything on the iPad, without success. So, inspite of my daughter having no problems on her iMac or Macbook. We reset the router, and everything was fine. Very strange.

    No internet on ipad.

    Hi. Many thanks for answering. Yes. I have already gone though the reset procedure, with no luck. It is my daughters router and she is having absolutely no problems. I'm staying with her ATM and not going home for another 10 days. I can get on line if I pair the iPad with my iPhone via Bluetooth.

    No internet on ipad.

    I have had my ipad2 16gb 3g since April. it has behaved faultlessly. Suddenly, yesterday morning. It refused to go on line. Although it was working fine, the previous evening at 11.00pm. It indicates that it has coupled to my router but then it goes into search mode, refusing to complete the...

    What are you guys doing right NOW??? ;)

    Watching a Saudi Arabian airliner, on the 'PlaneFinder' app, fly right over the Olympic park exclusion zone. Which I thought had come into force?

    Yes. It does get a tad hectic out there sometimes!

    Plane Finder app

    OK! So I'm a bit of an anorak. But who can blame me, with what I can see from my house (the blue dot) http://i715.photobucket.com/albums/ww157/Callander100/b008d9f0.jpg

    What are you guys doing right NOW??? ;)

    Waking up in Scotland after the long drove up from London, yesterday! 8 hours, 450 miles. Liberally sprinkled with T & P breaks. A journey I undertake about 6 times a year. It appears that we will also,have to get the roofers out. As all the torrential rain we have been enduring, has got...

    Photobucket and the ipad.

    I'm finding Photobucket a nightmare to use with the ipad 2. I have to use a combination of the P/B app and P/B installed in Safari. I am finding that I have to use one to upload a picture to P/B. Then the other to download the picture to its final destination. I just can't get one or the other...

    Using the iPad 2 as a satnav for the first time on Sunday

    I am still up in Scotland so have been using the iPad 2 as a sat nav quite frequently by leaning it against the dash, behind the steering column. I will scratchbuild a proper fitting when I get home to London, next week. Loving the larger screen. The windscreen iPad holder I bought, is totally...

    Downloading photos from a compact flash card

    I agree. I connect my Nikon D200 which also uses CF to the iPad via a USB hub, with no problems.

    Question about using iPad in my car ?

    I was told by a '3' store, that they would disconnect my phone if they detected my using my iPhone sim card in the iPad. I successfully paired my iPad 2 to the iPhone via Bluetooth. Worked perfectly.

    Using the iPad 2 as a satnav for the first time on Sunday

    Well, this idea failed at the first hurdle. The iPad is far too heavy for the mount. Even when I eventually attached it in a place where it didn't block my view. I spent more time looking at the thing, than I did at the road, wondering it was going to fall off at any moment. But, having stopped...

    Using the iPad 2 as a satnav for the first time on Sunday

    Well. I feel such a fool now. My iPad 2 is 3G, but just assumed it wouldn't work, when out of range of my router. But having just successfully tried the sat nav, in the middle of Sainsburys. I guess, forget everything I previously said. I'm 67 in four days time. (at least that's my excuse):o

    Using the iPad 2 as a satnav for the first time on Sunday

    I did originally wonder about that. But didn't see the logic of it working in such a way. I will be thrilled if it does work, particularly in the Highlands.

    Using the iPad 2 as a satnav for the first time on Sunday

    Also, I am concerned that 'NavFree' has a bit of an 'as the crow flies' complex. I did a couple of dummy runs to Scotland, using the 'shortest' and then the 'quickest' routes. Both times, it ignored nearby trunk roads and motorways. Preferring to travel in as near a straight line as possible...

    Using the iPad 2 as a satnav for the first time on Sunday

    I have looked in all the local Halfords. No luck there. I have a Renault Scenic II. The dash is enormous. I am considering making something from scratch.

    Using the iPad 2 as a satnav for the first time on Sunday

    Thankyou. I have found a 'ventilator grill' fitting bracket, on eBay, which I might consider. The only problem is where exactly to place it.

    Using the iPad 2 as a satnav for the first time on Sunday

    On Sunday I am driving up from London to central Scotland. A trip I do about 6 times a year. This time just for the hell of it. I am using the iPad 2 as a satnav. I have the 'NavFree' app. And have already ascertained that the iPad will successfully pair with my iPhone on Bluetooth. So no sim...

    3g without a sim card.

    Depressed at the cost of payg micro sims. I enquired at my local '3' store about occasionally inserting my iPhone sim into the iPad. I was told, '3' would eventually cotton on to this and disconnect my sim. But then the girl assistant showed me how to sync the iPad with my iPhone, to enable me...

    My ipad2 is screwing with my iPhone

    I have my ipad2 and my iPhone on all the time. I frequently have text conversations with my daughter throughout the day. My iPhone usually receives a text, a second or two after the iPad. But sometimes it can be up to 4 hours before a reply comes through. I have just received a text a few...

    Any advice on things to do to pass the time on ipad2 what do you do day to day?

    I use mine for my hobbies. I have to confess I'm a bit of an anorak. I go train spotting and plane spotting and the iPad is admirably suited to both of these pursuits. I spend a lot of time on Facebook, with friends and family. I am also a bird watcher but haven't as yet tried to use it in the...

    The Official I got my iPad 2 Thread!

    Tried mine out in the big bad world of external public Wi-Fi today. (Who said anything about a pub? :eek:) A bit involved, signing in. (Why do they need your life story?) But it work fine. Also got a Crystal back protector. A Usb/card reader and a windscreen iPad holder. All for less than...

    The Official I got my iPad 2 Thread!

    I always wanted to get an iPad2. And after reading the specs of the new one. I decided it wasn't for me. I only wanted one to help in my various hobbies. I didn't need a 6 squillion pixel screen. I eventually settled for a 16gb 3g from Comet for £429.00. If you've seen it cheaper, I am not...

    Second introduction.

    Hello & many thanks for your reply. A quick change of mind about the Christmas present though. Christmas will be expensive enough without the indulgence of an iPad2, so, since there appears to be the distinct possibility of a new kid on the block early next year. I think I might just wait for that.

    Second introduction.

    Sorry. I introduced myself in the wrong thread. So will start again here. Hi to all. I'm Mike. I am seriously considering getting myself an iPad2 for Christmas. Probably a 32gb with 3g. I am now retired, but have several outside hobbies (bird watching, train & plane spotting) & am wondering...
