    Where are movies stored?

    I find the Apple TV does a better job at streaming than the iPad Air does. Once the film starts it rarely then stops, which is not always the case with the iPad, particularly with HD films. The obvious conclusion I can come to is that Apple TV has a better wireless technology integrated than the...

    UK iTunes far behind US.....and rip-off

    Columbo is regularly shown on UK television on one of the main terrestrial channels called ITV and they operate a digital channel in HD which mirrors their main channel, and to be honest, the picture quality in clarity and definition of Columbo is so much greater on the HD channel. I am not...

    UK iTunes far behind US.....and rip-off

    with many popular shows. We only have the first three seasons available of The Simpsons whereas in the US, as far as I know, they pretty much have all completed seasons available. I would love to download some of the best episodes across the entire run. We also don't have Columbo available. It...

    Where are movies stored?

    I agree with you about downloading it to the device before watching a show. This way there won't be any interference. But for some reason my iPad always seems to be near full storage, when all apps currently on the device should not top 30-40%. I have nothing in the iTunes download queue. This...

    Which iPad should I get being an iPhone 6 Plus owner?

    I think the current screen size is just fine with the iPad, I just don't understand the logic of a 12-13 inch screen. I think future iPad Air can be made smaller and lighter whilst retaining the current screen size. They could shave 25% off the bezel on each side. I actually thought about...

    No option to password individual apps?

    Of course. This never crossed my mind. Thanks

    No option to password individual apps?

    The apps themselves require own passwords to log in, I just wanted to password these apps so they won't be at risk of being deleted. I have some younger family members using the tablet and there is always a chance the apps could be deleted accidentally (happened once before) in which case it...

    Where are movies stored?

    Thanks for the very helpful answer. In the video app everything, all movies and TV shows, these days seems to show the cloud symbol. There use to be a time last year when the shows would automatically download to the device when purchased before it could play. But to be honest, this is how I...

    No option to password individual apps?

    Say you have financially sensitive apps that you would like individually passworded, is there an option to do this other than password on the device login itself?

    Where are movies stored?

    I have movies and TV shows on my iPad with total file size way in excess of the 16gb device they are on. Presumably they are stored and played off the cloud, but since I only have the default 5gb cloud storage offered, there shouldn't be be the necessary space to store all of the video content I...

    Browser closes randomly

    Usually coincides with image heavy pages though still random. Safari and Chrome experience the same problem. I have cleared cache without success. It's not a huge issue (only happens occasionally) but very frustrating when it does.

    Apple iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 Now Available for Pre-order on Apple Store

    Extremely thin is not necessarily a good thing especially with iPad's slippery aluminium back. just bought the iPad Air and it doesn't feel very comfortable holding it. Awesome device and really light but I had to buy a cover to have a better grip on the back. Once you reach a certain thinness...

    iPad big or small?

    I've been reading a few previews of what the new iPad might be like when it's released. Although it will likely be significantly thinner than Air, rumours are that it will be around the same weight, possibly a touch heavier, and neither are they likely to shave off any of the bezel around the...

    iPad big or small?

    Do you know if iPad Air 2 will trim some of the bezel found on the current version. If they make the device slightly smaller overall (while keeping the screen size the same) and make it a little lighter, I suppose it will almost feel like a mini anyway. I think I will wait and see how the new...

    iPad big or small?

    Which would you choose - IPad Air or Mini Retina - if your job involved looking at share prices, studying stock charts, having multiple browser windows operating at the same time? And for entertainment, quite a bit of Youtube video viewing, bit of gaming, and occasional iTunes movie. I will...

    help! just 90% - battery problem in my Mini... should I claim the warranty?

    A similar thing happens on mine where it charges to 96% and then gets stuck. But when I take the charger out of the iPad some 20 minutes later and put it back in straightaway, it jumps to 100%. So its really charging even though it appears to get stuck. However if I leave the charger in very...

    Is demand for bigger iPad/tablets going down?

    When I bought the mini and used it for a few days and got accustomed to it, I have rarely touched the bigger iPad since. The whole point of a tablet, in my opinion, is that it should be be really comfortable in the hand, be palm-able, light, whereas the bigger iPad now feels quite clumsy. To be...

    How to ensure the iPad always reconnects to chosen network?

    Although my iPad mini connects to my desired network most of the time, it does occasionally switch to another network, a local pay-per-use network. It use to happen a lot when I had the 1st iPad but happens rarely now. I suppose the software upgrades have improved that. However, the odd time my...

    WiFi issue with iPad

    My iPad keeps dropping connection to broadband network. What's the best way to 'bridge' the gap between the router on top floor (3rd floor) and iPad on the ground floor? I don't think its an issue with the iPad itself because my laptop use to do the same thing until I got a 30 metre ethernet...

    Holding off buying iPad mini for mini 2

    But iPad 2 was supposed to be quite imminent. There was talk of a possible April release. Regarding the mini itself, initially I was quite hesitant in buying it and then took me a few days to get properly accustomed to it because I was used to the bigger iPad. Now I hardly ever use the bigger...

    Holding off buying iPad mini for mini 2

    The alumanium back does give the iPad the quality look and feel, but I do think because the mini is signficantly smaller and thinner than the full size, it can get a little slippery. I think they should maintain it but release an extremely lightweight rubbery back case for those who want the...

    Holding off buying iPad mini for mini 2

    The more I play around with the mini, the more I am loving it. Its so much more comfortable to hold when using it than iPAd 2. The screen is comparable to iPAd 2, and because its smaller screen, the resolution actually appears slightly higher but yet the screen is actually a really nice size. I...

    How long does your iPad take to charge?

    If I am using a 10W to charge currently, so wouldn't the 12W, in theory at least, charge it faster?

    How long does your iPad take to charge?

    Would the 12W adapter improve the speed further? I am currently using an Amazon adapter and also an Amazon cable which I find charges sigifcantly faster than when I use Apple's official adapter and cable.

    How long does your iPad take to charge?

    It takes 3 hours to charge the iPad 2 and 2 hours for the mini from zero to full charge. Do these figures seem about right? This is when its not being used whilst charging.

    Which iPad wordproccessor works interchangeably with MS Word?

    I will look into Pages. Up until now I never really saw the iPad as a work device, just for bit of entertainment. I always had the impression it would be really cumbersome to work on, something that took an hour to do on computer or a laptop would take twice as long on the iPad. Howver, I want...

    Which iPad wordproccessor works interchangeably with MS Word?

    I need something that I can import from a MS word file and then edit. I then need to be able to copy and paste the article from MS Word into Wordpress. Can you also suggest a good image editor please. I need to be able to save an image on iPad from the web and then open that image in the image...

    Holding off buying iPad mini for mini 2

    Not surprising since the mini is more than twice as light and much thinner than iPad 1, and better resolution.

    Holding off buying iPad mini for mini 2

    I decided to get the mini. One thing I have found is that its difficult to hold while laying down. Its not wide as the full sized iPad which makes it quite difficult to hold with both hands for long periods. Holding with one hand while laying down is not that comfortable, either. But I think the...

    Why do people keep upgrading iPads?

    For most people who use their iPad for a bit of fun like web browsing, watching a few videos and accessing email, I really don't see the need for upgrading. To me, that's what an iPAd is - an entertainment device, not something to work on; I have the laptop for that. I have iPad 2 and I can't...

    Holding off buying iPad mini for mini 2

    There is some talk it could now be October or thereabouts. I couldn't wait. Ordered the white mini off Amazon. I have 30 days to ask for a refund, so just in case ipad mini 2 arrives early April, I'll still have enough time to get a refund and buy the new one. I'll only do that if the price of...

    Holding off buying iPad mini for mini 2

    When is the release date - April or October (the two most likely)? Lot of people it seems have been underwhelmed by the display on the 1st gen iPad mini so I would probably wait for the 2nd. I am hoping the battery life will be extended a bit and that it will also be touch lighter than the 1st...

    iTunes a ripoff

    Another thing to mention here is that some of the so called 'HD' films have only marginal picture quality improvement over SD films. I don't know if the HD version of the same film on dvds is much better though.

    iTunes a ripoff

    Yes both iPads are indeed on the same ID. I didn't mind paying £6.99 because its a still a great film, but I have resisted buying other good films from the Eighties and Nineties because I felt they overcharging. Good thing some of these films come on TV from time to time (channels like Film4)...

    iTunes a ripoff

    Firstly, they overcharge for old films that are 2/3 decades old. For example, I just paid £6.99 for Robocop in SD. I really wanted to watch the film because its one of my all time favorites and I hadn't seen it in ages. But the film I am sure is shown on TV now and then because its old and am...

    iPad 3 a big let down plus iPad 4 wish list

    Lot of people read reviews on gadgets sites and watch their video reviews too and often have their minds decided upon reading these reviews. I have a job that pays well and have no problem affording the iPad if I wanted. Besides, I can sell my iPad 32g and get a good price which would require...
