    GPS on iPad 2 wifi - Help please

    Terrible? Why? You can get the app for free, and the Bluetooth GPS unit, in the long run, will probably be cheaper than a data plan.

    GPS on iPad 2 wifi - Help please

    Your best option is to buy a Bluetooth GPS receiver (like the Dual Electronics XGPS150A, on Amazon for under $100), and then one of the navigation apps that downloads the maps to the iPad (like NavFree or Navigon).

    Note taking app that supports folders and sub-folders?

    I do tech support for a software company, and take notes on clients, software applications, projects, etc. I'm looking for a note taking app that supports the use of folders and sub-folders. For instance, I envision a 'notebook' with a folder called 'Clients' and a folder called...

    Rented videos still on machine

    If I recall correctly, there is an 'Edit' button in the paper left corner. Tap it, and you can select and delete the movies.

    Is I Tunes down?

    Same thing happened to me, while on a weekend trip to Washington, DC. I stayed at two different hotels, and got the same message at both when trying to update an app. I finally set up tethering on my phone, connected my iPad to the phone, and all of the sudden, I could connect to the iTunes...

    Speedtest SLOW numbers

    No problems here. My Speedtest results for both my iPad3 and my wife's iPad2 are very consistent with what I see from my laptop, all connected to the same wireless router.

    Any recommendations for the best browser for sites that utilize Javascript? I've tried Safari, Atomic Browser, and Dolphin HD, with limited success. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance! Tom

    How to download files?

    If you are using Safari, I'm not sure you can do that. But with Atomic Browser, you can download a file, and then save it to Dropbox. Tom

    Removing apps for good

    Greetings! I have several (many!) apps that I have downloaded, only to find I did not like them, or they didn't do what I was expecting, so I did the usual - tap-and-hold and then tap the X to "delete" them. But they still appear as "not on this iPad" or "hidden." Is there any way to fully...

    Remote desktop connection app

    You might want to look at Wyse Pocketcloud. I've been testing it, accessing a Windows server on our work network. So far, it looks pretty good. --Tom--

    Look for an application called Fingerprint by Collobus Software. It runs on your PC and allows your iPad to print through your PC. Free to try; $10 o to keep. It works pretty well. Tom

    iPad users' router experience

    I have an ASUS RT-N56U Router and have no issues with it with our iPad2. Range - don't know exactly, but better than my old Linksys router. Excellent stability/reliability. On a scale of 1 to 10, I'd say 9 (nobody's perfect!).

    Bluetooth Headsets for Skpe on I-Pad

    Did anyone ever get a bluetooth headset to work fully with Skype on the iPad? I hate corded headsets (probably because my desk is a mess already!) Thanks! Tom

    Skype and the ongoing headset question.

    From what I've been able to figure out, the bluetooth headset must be "A2DP-Compliant" to work with Skype on the iPad. There are a couple of other threads you might want to look at. Just search the forums for "skype bluetooth headset" and you'll find lots of reading material. Tom

    Won't retina display become more a problem than an improvement for users?

    Good point, Seadog! If you want top quality photos, buy a top quality camera. The iPad camera is what it is - average.

    Regarding buying an iPad from eBay or Craig's List, are there any guidelines or "things to watch for" when buying from a non-Apple source? Thanks in advance! Tom
