    Am I reading too much into this?

    Sorry, but I have to reply. I use the Smart Case and the button is on the right. But I don't touch type on the screen in the way Marilyn does. In fact, I've long given up on touch typing on the iPad screen. While I'm a decent touch typist, I poke type with a stylus instead. If I really want to...
  2. skallal Upgrade Problems - Issues Thread

    J.A. It looks like Tapatalk HD is no longer available in the App Store. I find that odd because Tapatalk Pro doesn't have a 2 column layout for tablets. Strange? Steve Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk HD
  3. skallal Upgrade Problems - Issues Thread

    Thanks J.A. I must be using a different version of Tapatalk, because my UI looks different from your screenshot. I am using Tapatalk HD. That said, the search works if I select Posts at the bottom of the screen, instead of the top as on your's. Steve Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk HD

    I still use Tapatalk, although the browser seems to be the new recommended way to access these forums. SInce the upgrade, I've noticed that search no longer works when using Tapatalk. But search does work from a browser. Sorry if that has already been brought up, as I haven't read all the post...

    Quickoffice Pro replacement for iOS 7

    Fred, There are workarounds for the cloud changes in the new Quickoffice. For example if you want to save a current document to Dropbox, tap on the blue bright arrow, and the right pane should show an "open in" button. This will open Dropbox and ask you what folder to save the document in...

    Cat vs Dog, which is better? (iPad owner survey)

    Ok I have an update. I'm the cat lover some how stuck with two lovable cuddly Pug dogs. And I have one cat left. Used to have two. I had to out one cat down at age 17 last year, sniff sniff! My remaining cat is 18 now, and boy is he high maintenance! He can't jump any more. He is anemic and too...

    Apple Issues Statement on Maps Issues

    I don't know if it this has been mentioned in this thread yet, but there is a app in the store called "Live Street View", that does just what the title suggests, it gives you street view, and direct from Google maps. The downside is that the street view is not full-screen, but rather a little...

    Chas, I don't get a list. All I get is a message from Siri saying I can't place a call on this device. What list are you talking about?

    Siri issues...

    I just tried Siri for the first time having the third-generation iPad with the IOS 6 upgrade. I started by asking Siri for the phone number of a local restaurant. Siri responses saying that I cannot place a call on this device but I can make of face time call. Why won't Siri just simply give me...

    Apple Developer program cost?

    I was under the impression that the Apple developer program is free if you do not plan on submitting apps to the store. The registration page, at, says "Register for free to access Apple developer tools and resources for creating iOS and Mac apps...

    are you a mac or a windows user?

    Ok I've already posted on this before. Yes I am a Windows user. I've always used Windows since 1990. I'll probably always be a Windows user. Last night I did it. I didn't mean to. But there are times in life when we're not responsible for our actions. Yes I bought a Mac! It is a used Mac Mini...

    Which Mac for iOS development?

    I've been biting the bullet for a while now, thinking about buying a Mac for iOS development. I am not a Mac person, in fact I come from a Windows background. But I am a developer and want to get on the iPad bandwagon. I've been looking at the Mac Mini, even looking at Craigslist. I'd like to...

    Best External Speakers for iPad?

    I use a Bluetooth Logitech speaker adapter PN 980-000540. It works with existing speakers. Also you could use it to drive the input of a PC soundcard, which is how I use it. I got it for about $40 at Radio Shack. I didn't want to buy Bluetooth speakers because I already had speakers I wanted, in...

    I would like to tell you how iPads changed my lifestyle.

    The iPad changed my lifestyle alright. I don't have a life anymore! It seems I'm getting on the iPad for the sake of getting on the iPad and not to get any work done! Can anyone refer me to a 12-step program? lol...

    Cat vs Dog, which is better? (iPad owner survey)

    I have both. Right now I have two dogs and one cat. The cat is very senior and just turned 18 last month. Just put down another cat last summer. He was 17. My dogs are two Pugs aged 7 and 8. They are soooo affectionate, but need soooo much attention. I vote for cats, although it looks like...

    iPad Stylus used for writing???

    Yes and I too recommended the Bamboo stylus. But after a while the nib of develops a tear. But I never had one occur after only two weeks. I have bought a pack of replacement nibs from Wacom, but they tend to be a little pricey. I could easily go through half a dozen nibs per year, and they come...

    Yahoo Mail question

    I'd like to use Yahoo Mail on my iPad, but I'd also like to leave the mail on the server. The last time I tried, a few months ago, it deleted a bunch of mail from the server. I just looked in the settings, and the closest thing I can find, is Deleted Messages > Remove > Never. Is this the...

    Apps w/ blurry Retina display

    Ok, I did some research and found some solutions. LogMeIn has a Color Quality setting. It was defaulted to compressed. I changed it to high and, viola, everything is crisp now. Splashtop remote desktop was not so easy. I had to search their forums. Their support guy said to use native...

    Apps w/ blurry Retina display

    I am finding the Retina display to be both a blessing and a curse. When an app works well with the retina display, it is fantastic. But if it does not work well with the retina display, it is a real hassle. Case in point are some remote desktop apps I frequently use. I have been a real fan of...

    How pervasive are the iPad 3 WiFi problems?

    I have the new iPad w/ LTE. No wifi problems so far. In fact, I had a better connection in a bad spot at work than an iPad 2 in the same room. The iPad 2 couldn't keep a connection. I did have wifi issues w/ my 1st gen iPad, early on, until a firmware update finally fixed it.

    I finally found a good screen protector - Power Suport

    Yeah that is good to know because I don't want to install a protector myself. Best Buy will install the screen protector for me, for a fee of course. I saw the Zagg HD screen protector yesterday for $40 at Best Buy. I damaged the nibs on my Bamboo stylus using the old screen protector...

    You can use FLASH for web pages on ipad3 with Photon browser!

    I just tried the site, but it wants to charge my credit card for a free account. So I didn't continue. My only interest is to see if the site works with Photon browser or not. Just be sure you click the lightening bolt icon near the upper right corner. That puts the browser in a remote desktop...

    I finally found a good screen protector - Power Suport

    Which iPad are you using? I have the new iPad and don't want to ruin its pristine resolution. I have the regular Zagg on my 1st gen iPad and an Android tablet. Very draggy feel, and it is hard on styluses IHMO.

    Forget the ratings, Photon is the best IHMO. That said the ratings in the US App Store are 3 1/2 stars. I'd give it a 5!

    Are you still happy with wifi?

    Believe it or not, my LTE connection on the new iPad is faster than the Wi-Fi at work. The work Wi-Fi is about as fast as my old DSL connection. That says a lot for AT&T's LTE speeds, at least here in Southern California. I only wish I could get AT&T's earlier plan. I am stuck at $30 for three...

    I finally found a good screen protector - Power Suport

    I've been thinking about getting the same screen protector. I had a Zagg before on the first generation iPad. But it had a very gummy feel. While it did protect the screen from smudges, I found it very hard to use a stylus. It actually wore the tips off of some styluses, go figure! That said...

    Which is the right app that imports Word docs with tables

    Hmm... I was trying to create a table in QuickOffice HD Pro, but couldn't figure out how. I'll have to see if it will import a table from a Word doc. I've been looking for a word processor app that can create tables with or without borders. I suppose nothing beats the real thing on a desktop.

    BT wireless keyboard vs. keyboard case

    I also used the Apple BT keyboard with the Origami Workstation. But for me it has one fatal flaw. It does not secure the iPad in any way. I wouldn't use it on my lap. And it requires a table top to secure the iPad. Lately I've been using the Zagg keyboard folio. There is a thread dedicated to...

    Polaris Office v the rest

    I pulled the trigger on Polaris Office last night and bought it from the App Store. I had very high expectations for it, even though the cloud support is lacking. Oddly enough I can live with the lack of cloud support. In fact, setting it up on Box Net was easy. Dropbox would be the preferred...
