    Thanks. But why different for the desktop?

    Calendar headings and layout wrong

    On my PC desktop, Calendar shows the correct positions, like this: Dropbox - iosCalendar-Desktop.jpg But on my iPad the days and dates are on the right. Dropbox - iosCalendar-iPad.jpg Is there a setting I've been unable to find to fix this please? BTW, I tried using the Image tool, but it...

    GPS recording has become erratic/inaccurate

    Thanks Kevin. My focus is on discovering why the iPhone/Memory-Map combination has started behaving in this way. I can filter/reduce the number in various tools I have after the initial import, such as with GPS Utility or Memory Map itself, on the desktop PC. I also now have Memory-Map's...

    GPS recording has become erratic/inaccurate

    Anyone else having problems with GPS data from iPad or iPhone please? I'm getting poor capture, inaccuracy, and - the most striking recent change - an excessive number of trackpoints. Typically one every couple of seconds. It's either iOS or the app I use, Memory Map. (Awaiting reply from...

    How To: Put your iPad into Recovery Mode

    - if you had previously backed up your iPad, iTunes will tell you there is a backup and ask if you would like it restored. If you wish to do this, accept the prompt. This will also take some time. Note it will NOT put your apps, music, movies, TV shows, etc back on your iPad, just your settings...

    Help!!!! No backup option

    Mail Searh facilty: doesn't seem reliable.

    Can anyone point me to a detailed explanation of how the mail Search works please? I can't make sense of some of the results. For example, assuming it searches for text strings matching the one specified, I'd expect dozens or hundreds of hits for what I just entered, with From as the filter. I...

    Sharing over 50 photos from iPad to iTouch

    Thanks Marilyn. Appears to be exclusively for iPhone, not iPad. Took a look anyway and it's identical in approach to an iPad app I already have, called PhotoSync. Uses wifi with a specific URL fro your local PC browser. I've decided to use the combination of DropBox and GoodReader. Terry, UK

    Sharing over 50 photos from iPad to iTouch

    I'd like to do that too. Seems a very unmaginative design if you can do it only one photo at a time, from the Photos app. So far on my UK iPad I can't find 'Bump' in the App store. Is that it's exact title please? Terry, UK

    From iPad app to browser?

    How do I get from My Videos in the iPad app to that same page in my browser (Safari) please? I'm almost sure I did this once before by tapping a link labeled 'desktop'. Alternatively, how do I EDIT a video (e.g. change its privacy status) in the iPad app? -- Terry, UK

    Cannot sign into Apple discussions forums

    For 3 weeks I waas unable to sign into the Apple Discussions forums. Eventually got it fixed a few days ago fixed by Apple (after 3 weeks). But this morning I'm back with the same problem. When I try to visit https://discussions.apple.com/ I'm getting redirected to...

    Transferring video to iPad?

    From my reading so far I gather that the iPad will play MP4 video files. But does it have to be specially prepared, with certain size etc? The arbitrary example I tried (which plays fine on my PC) didn't even show up on my iPad! -- Terry, East Grinstead, UK

    iTunes music - extra entry from Playlists folder

    I bet this will also turn out to be very obvious... Within \My Music I had a \Playlists subfolder containing all my old .m3u playlists (used mainly with Media Monkey). So by specifying \My Music as the folder for import, I've ended up with many hundreds of duplicate entries in the iTunes music...

    Getting Music into iTunes Library?

    OK, sorted thanks. I hadn't grasped the distinction between the DATABASE and the folder called C:\Docs\My Music\iTunes\iTunes Media\Music -- Terry, East Grinstead, UK

    Getting Music into iTunes Library?

    After some initial problems (separate thread) I got iTunes running on my Win XP PC and specified \My Music as the source for its music library. I had also set it to convert my WMAs. However, I hadn't anticipated the size of the task to convert these 4,200 files. At the rate it was going it...

    iTunes setup failed - Help!

    Thanks. That's what I ended up doing, after methodically uninstalling all iTunes and Quicktime components. Seems to be OK now.

    iTunes setup failed - Help!

    I tried to install iTunes on my PC this morning. It ran for 5-10 minutes or so, then stopped with this message: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4019461/IiTunes-Setupproblem-1.jpg FWIW, the other two windows I was able to display contained the following technical stuff...

    Transferring emailed files?

    Thanks Ivan. This particular case is Memory Map file (.QCT) and I do have that app on my iPad. But more generally I was looking for a way to handle any file type. Guess Apple is much less flexible than MS Windows in this respect? As mentioned, I was unable even to do anything with the QCT...

    Transferring emailed files?

    I needed a file urgently as I'm on holiday and failed to copy it across before I left home. So a friend emailed it to me as an attachment. But how can I now use it? I get message that "Mail cannot open this". (Or maybe "iPad cannot open this"). I want to move it so that it can be used by my...

    Cannot get my email accounts working

    Thanks Ksane, appreciate your helpful reply. I do now have Googlemail and BT Internet email accounts working on the iPad. And I've also got a Pipex POP account working. So the remaining problem is that I can't get a Pipex IMAP account to work. Yet I have had one working on my smartphone (under...

    App for saving text file?

    Could someone please recommend an app that's basically a simple text editor. I want to be able to write a note or list or whatever, and then save it with a filename for opening quickly again later. -- Terry

    Cannot get my email accounts working

    Anyone with any ideas please? Even if not using an email account from Pipex (now called Tiscali BTW), maybe other more experienced users know of some clever way to find a combination of settings (especially ports) that works? This is my 3rd day and I still haven't sorted it. -- Terry, East...

    padphone

    But presumably that limits you to talking only to someone else using Skype? A very tiny proportion of contacts. And not much use for that rare emergency call! Naive question (I'm a complete iPad rookie): is there any hope of a plug-in (smaller than any current mobile 'phone) that would allow...

    Newcomer: couple of basic queries

    (Not sure if multi-topic posts are OK? Should I have sent two even smaller posts?) 1. How can I capture the iPad's screen please (e.g. to illustrate a problem)? 2. I have a hundred or so old emails displayed. Must I use Edit and then checkmark them individually, or is there a 'Delete All'...

    Cannot get my email accounts working

    Well, at least I've sorted that one. The dialog window you get when you open up an email account in Settings > Mail is just a bit too short! The red Delete button is accessible in all cases with a little drag upward. No idea why it wasn't made sufficiently deep to show the entire contents -...

    Cannot get my email accounts working

    On the PC they are POP accounts, because Forte's Agent (my combined newsreader/email program) doesn't support IMAP. On the smartphone they are IMAP. Neither work (for any of the three accounts) on the iPad. Take my main account, Pipex (99% of my usage). I had high hopes of the settings that I...

    Joining Apple iPad forum?

    Thanks for the fast response. My first move was to locate the Contact Us link, fill that in and send my query. But the automatic acknowledgement said that they don't actually reply! That's what I meant by 'dead end'. I'm hoping others here might also have tried (after all, for an iPad rookie...

    Cannot get my email accounts working

    I'm a long time Windows PC user totally new to Apple in general and the iPad in particular. Looks like I'm going to love it. But I'm currently frustrated after spending 20-30 hours trying in vain to get my email accounts working. I have 3 email accounts, which are working fine on my PC (from...
