    Radio Alarm app

    Hi, does anyone know of a radio alarm app, where you can manually add radio stations? Currently trying to find one, because the radio alarm apps I've tried don't have the radio station I'd want. So it seems that the only way is to add the station manually.

    iPad in one room, music in another

    The easiest option would indeed be to get an airport express and connect it to the speakers in the living room. Then the iPad will let you choose between playing the music on the iPad, or on the speakers connected to the airport express.

    Ever since I upgraded to iOS 5, my battery seems to get used up more quickly

    There seems to be an issue with ios 5.0, where it can reduce the battery life. It is supposed to be fixed in ios 5.0.1 though. Since downgrading is not an option, unless you have SHSH blobs saved, it would be best to just wait until apple releases the iOS update.

    No virtual keyboard after jb?

    Ever since the iPad 2 3G (4.3.3) has been jailbreaked, there is one specific app which doesn't work properly. In "accounts" by Graham Haley, the virtual keyboard does not appear, even when specifically selecting a textbox, so that the blinking curser shows up. Thus it is not possible to...

    What's the last movie you saw?

    It must have been the remake. Is the original worth watching?

    The Thomas Crown Affair. Had lots of fun watching it.

    Email attachments

    You can copy/paste pictures into emails. Just tap&hold onto a picture, until the menu shows up, touch copy, then switch to your email, tap&hold again, then paste. This procedure can be repeated as many times as needed. Mail may show thumbnails instead of the actual pictures, but the images...

    How can i download ra. files, please?

    As mentioned before, Goodreader, or pretty much any iPad Browser (for example the free "Terra") apart from Safari will let you save any file.

    iPad 2 4.3.3 recovery loop

    Got it working ;) Not sure what caused it to work now, but I turned off Teamviewer/Splashtop this time. Now it's running 4.3.3, and it seems just in time. I had no idea about the bootloader exploit not working on iPad 2. f4780y, your help is very much appreciated.

    iPad 2 4.3.3 recovery loop

    Yes, this is a 3G iPad 2. The weird thing is, even after deleting the host file, does iTunes throw an Error 20 shorty after extracting the firmware. I have already downloaded it twice, to see, whether one was corrupt. A Shift+Restore onto 4.3.4 works fine though and the error comes after itunes...

    iPad 2 4.3.3 recovery loop

    I am trying to install/restore 4.3.3 on an iPad 2, which used to run 4.3.1. The SHSH blobs are saved with TU. Steps I have done: -download correct 4.3.3 firmware from the apple server -open the host file and remove, then restart the computer -open TU 5.xx, (the newest), tick Set...

    Safari screen dimmed & no movement

    Have you held the power and home button at the same time for at least 7 seconds? That should force a reboot.

    Sync Ipad 2 files with MS pc without iTunes

    The computer and iPad have to be on the same network for this to work, if they are, then it should always work, as there isn't much you could do wrong. However, if the laptop is using a VPN service to connect to the companies network, then it may not work, unless the iPad is also connected to...

    From outta space! There are no laws there, meaning that the apps are free of charge.

    There are various emulators available for the iPad, but all of them require a jailbreak, which is not yet available for the iPad 2.

    STEREO audio input ?

    The iPad does not have a line-in connection, so you have to rely on external hardware to connect it. The iRig should do the job.

    What does this symbol mean?

    Pocket Informant has this bug, where it always uses the location service, even though it has been closed, same as for Crackle ;)

    Connecting a Blackberry bold to my iPad1 via Bluetooth

    To tether the two, the iPad has to be jailbroken. If you are interested in this, you could head over to the Hacking Section, as it has detailed instructions on how to do so.

    Side button

    This may be a slight misunderstanding. The side button only mutes system sounds, such as incoming mail, notifications, etc. but it does not mute the sound of apps, such as iPod. To mute those, you would have to reduce the volume to zero.

    Can I have Apple store accounts in two countries?

    You can have up to 5 different Apple accounts activated on the iPad. So you can download apps, etc. from both countries. You don't loose anything by using multiple accounts. But you may have to change the account under Settings->Store, depending from which country you want to download something.

    What does this symbol mean?

    It means that some app, in your case probably the maps app, is using the location service to determine where your iPad currently is.

    iPad global search

    I was about to move this thread, but it tells me, you can't move it into a thread it already is in. ;) Anyway, there is no global search. It is not possible to search for files through third-party apps, so you will have to go through each one and see, where the file is saved.

    Educational Apps

    I bumped your thread into the Apps section. If the excel tables are not too complex, formula wise, then Numbers could be used. Numbers is Apple's Excel equivalent, though the iPad version has limited features compared to the desktop version, so if the tables are complex, it may not work...

    FaceTime is a free service, but it only works over Wifi. If you try to connect via 3G, it gives an error message. So if you wanted to video chat via 3G, then would have to use a different app, such as Yahoo messenger, or Vtok (for gmail video calling), or as mentioned before Skype.

    Ugh what do i do

    AppleStores have two stocks of iPad's, one for selling and one for replacement. So even when the AppleStore has no iPad's for sale, can you get a replacement unit.

    I could use some help with note taking

    When exporting PDF's from Goodreader to the Mac, you should make sure that it 'flattens' the PDF, that way all notes are saved directly in the PDF and will be shown by all PDF readers. Edit: Moved into the Apps section.

    How to delete pictures?

    Yes, photos synced via iTunes cannot be deleted directly from the iPad. You would have to remove the photos from the computer, or in iTunes turn off photo syncing to remove them from the iPad. Edit: Moved the thread into our Help section.

    Problem With Apps Crashing Under 4.3.2

    While I don't use icab myself, there are sometimes crash issues with certain apps, after updating iOS. I had a similar issue with AlarmClock Pro and after contacting the developers, they mentioned that uninstalling the app and then installing if fresh would solve the issue. Not sure, if icab...

    Restore... Just for the heck of it?

    I suppose you have installed all Cydia apps one after another to see, which one was the culprit? If your Cydia apps aren't from the official repo's, then it wouldn't surprise me, if one of those caused the problem. ;)

    Volume control

    There is no hack, but you could always use the volume slider, as that allows for finer volume adjustment. But if that doesn't help, there isn't much that can be done about this.

    iPad 2 apps

    For 1) Skype has an iPhone only app, but not one for the iPad. However, if you are in a video call, it doesn't matter, as the video should be fullscreen anyway. There is no mention of Skype ever releasing an iPad version of it. So for the time being, the Skype iPhone app will have to do. Not...

    Time Warner Magazines Apps

    Bumped you into the App section, as you are more likely to receive a response here. I don't own those apps, but the two standard ways of deleting documents on the iPad are: a) swiping across the magazine and then press delete b) pressing onto the magazine for 1-2 seconds and then select the x...

    Ugh what do i do

    You can always inspect the iPad before leaving the AppleStore. It's not a surprise party. When the replacement iPad has the same issues, or worse, then there is no requirement to take it. Just mention, that you want to take a look at the replacement unit beforehand, to verify that the issue...

    Crash problem

    Yes and no. There are log files kept, but only Apple has the software to read those. So if you wanted to find the root cause, you could visit an AppleStore, connect the iPad to one of their MacBook Pro's and then see, what their diagnostics tool finds. But as far as I know, is there no...

    Crash problem

    The red warning in XSysInfo is there, so that you don't turn on 'clean at launch' and 'deep clean' at the same time, unless you know what you are doing. Because that will result in a crash loop, where XSysInfo cleans the ram including itself, everytime XSysInfo opens and you can thus not use the...

    I can't connect to my PC

    The iPad will always show "Not charging", when it is connected to a computer, as the computer USB usually only supplies 0.5mA, as opposed to the 2A, supplied by the iPad charger. So when it says not charging, it isn't being honest, the iPad does get charged, but generally only at a quarter of...
