    A tablet that doesn't do much but text

    Yes TabletGuy she may just ditch the whole thing,although she did suggest it. She has trouble with our cordless phone. It's comical if I hand her my iPad to look at a picture she manages to change the screen before she can see the pic. Her daughter is on android she can check out the...

    A tablet that doesn't do much but text

    Thanks. I hadn't looked into Accessibility lately and there are some upgrades that might be helpful. I have an iPad 2 that I can return to new and put just her stuff on it.

    A tablet that doesn't do much but text

    I would like to find a way to make it possible for my SO to text her kids. I am 81 and have been using PCs etc since there were any. I worked at IBM when the first pcs came out. She, however, "has trouble with anything with more than one button". I have tried taking almost everything off of...

    Mute my iPad

    I tried the DISH TV app and the stream stopped with that one too. But I found a reasonable work around, I have a FINTIE keyboard that came with a case that I used for a while. It has mute key. It lives on my desk so it's convenient enough. Thank-you again for your help and suggestions. Bob

    Mute my iPad

    Thanks for your thoughts. I was expecting that to be the answer but, hope springs eternal. Unfortunately when I bring up the control panel that stops the stream. I'm using the NBC app that brings up the local affiliate. Thanks, Bob

    Mute my iPad

    I have an iPad pro 10.5 and I use it sometimes to watch TV. As I do on my TV I would like to mute the sound during commercials. The best solution that I have found is using an external speaker and switching it off and on but that is awkward and I don't always have a speaker handy. Anyone have...

    Issues...!

    I haven't come up with any answers yet, but my credit card information is working the same way. No date or CVV. It might be a feature not a bug.

    Best todo app with Apple Pencil support please?

    I use NEBO and I find it very good on my iPad Only one fault it does not sync with my iPhone. It might need to be read only but even that would help. I know there are work-arounds using cloud but that is awkward and takes extra steps. I'm retired so I don't have much need for to-do lists.

    Something new or have I lost my last marble??

    I'm guessing that she just used the "plain vanilla" message app. I'll check with her. She is not an enthusiast. Does not use Touch ID, has a paper candler with her iPhone 6s.

    Something new or have I lost my last marble??

    Yes, I agree with that. Of course I didn't set it up. I will probably never know what happened. Thanks for your help and any other ideas that anyone has.

    FB messenger app. I also read that FB has some BOTs that can auto answer something like this. It was also an almost relevant answer.

    Something new or have I lost my last marble??

    This morning my partner's daughter sent me this message on FB messenger: Can you show this to mom? It's a very simple exercise and think it would really help her. "Along with a video." When I pulled it up the first two sentences were already in the out box. I'll tell her. And I'll keep her...

    iPad 2 glued up

    When I bought my iPad Pro I mounted my iPad 2 over my work bench and connected it to a small amplifier.. Now I can check the net and listen to music while I'm in the shop.

    Transfer files to iPad air from PC - what do I need? And how do I do it?

    I'm a bit late to this discussion. But, I've been using a PC program called "Copy Trans Photo" That moves Photos both to and from PC and iDevice. Also creates new Albums in photo app. Just Google Copy Trans they have a suite of programs. No connection, just a user.

    Gps and Cellular

    Has anything changed? Is cellular still linked with the GPS function on the newer iPads. I don't need cellular (I have a phone with "hotspot). Bob

    Clamcase?

    I bought a "NewTrent" from Amazon for my iPad air 2 and I really like it. It adds a little weight but the iPad separates from the keyboard very easily. Then you can have the pad with just a back protector and it's quite light. I also picked up a hand strap device by "Aleratec" that can go on...

    Corrupt Apple ID -- strange problem

    I just got an iPad 2 Air and plan to give my iPad 2 to my SO. I reset it to new and used my Apple ID. Then moved things around to set it up for her. The problem: I decided that it would be better for her to have her own Apple ID so I went to reset it again and start over. It won't take my ID...

    Please help; Can a iPad replace my MacBookPro?

    Just to stick my two cents in here: 1--If your fiances are limited, I think it would be a whole lot cheaper to replace the hard drive. Especially if the rest of your Mac is working properly. 2--If you think your HDD is failing be sure to move your important data to some where else Like icloud...

    Upload Textbooks Files to iPad Without iTunes

    I did it!!! I have an app called "File Browser". You may need to buy the full version but it works. FB will find "scan for" all the PCs and iOS devices on your LAN. You can open PDF files on your iPad. This is like viewing them on dropbox. But...After you open a file there is an option to...

    Looking for a QuikIO replacement

    QuikIO has been deactivated. This app made it possible for me to work with files on my LAN where ever I had an internet connection. I could designate what I wanted available. this was so much easier than me setting up a VPN. Anyone have a suggestion for a replacemment? I use File Browser...

    Non loading "Mint" App

    Well, they fixed the problem. My assumption is that they uploaded Mint 2.7.1 to the app store and my iPad down loaded 2.7.1 automatically. Really good service and I told them that. bob

    Having a hard time adjusting from 64gb to 32gb ipad mini

    Just a curiosity question if I may? What are you doing to use all that space? I have an old 32g iPad 2 that I've had almost two years and I still have 17 g available. No music though, I use Pandora at home and Sirius on the motorcycle. I use the iPad all the time for movies and TV (Dish)...

    Non loading "Mint" App

    I got a very reasonable reply from Mint. They asked me to send them the "crash log". This was their response: "Hi Bob, Thanks for getting back to us. After working with you to troubleshoot this issue, I’ve determined this is a product defect. I have reported it to our product development...

    Non loading "Mint" App

    My back and forth with the Mint helpdesk is not being very fruitful. They keep asking me things that I explained in my previous post. I'll give them a couple more days but I'm beginning that my life will go on quite nicely with out "Mint".

    Non loading "Mint" App

    I now have an open ticket with Mint. I have done the delete>reset>reinstall a few times. I don't know if the going from JB to 7.0.4 could have left anything hanging around, I doubt it. If mint can't come up with something I may put it back to factory and then install 7. Then just reinstall...

    Non loading "Mint" App

    I have an iPad 2 running iOS 7.0.4. Mint appears to download properly and the icon comes up. When I touch the icon a Mint page comes up but immediately goes dark and back to the page of icons. Mint runs OK on my iPhone 4s with iOS 7.0.4 and on my Win 7 PC. My guess is that the problem is...

    For those of you that have switched to iOS7...... a question

    I have an jail broken iPad 2 running iOS 5 and an iPhone 4s running iOS7. I find that many of the APPs that I use regularly and some of the new ones that I would like to use require iOS 7. I have reached a tipping point where I would be willing to give up the wonders of JB to be able to use...

    View linked data (wiki?) stored on iPad

    This seems like a good way to use Evernote or OneNote with the Outline+ app. I use OneNote and sync on Dropbox. That way the information is available on my PCs and the iPad and always synced. You could set it up at home and your Mom can access it on the iPad. Perhaps a little more information...

    WiFi issue with iPad

    I believe that the Range Extender connects wirelessly to the Netgear router. So i think that you may have some of the same connection problems that you have with the iPad. The access point is hard wired to one of the router's ports. And it is neither a router or a switch. A switch does not...

    WiFi issue with iPad

    Perhaps you could move the router to the second floor. Also, if you ran a CAT 5 cable to the first floor just buy an access point from Linksys and plug the cable into that. I did that to get WiFi to my screen house in the back yard.
