    Question about batteries, iPad and other devices

    I am on vacation in NC mountain near Murphy, NC. We have noticed that our iPads and cell phones (iPhone 5, Droid Bionic & Samsung) all seem to discharge faster and charge slower than at home. I am retired and at home use my iPad all day for internet, reading, gaming, texting. At the end of...

    Apple Also Teases Their Fourth Gen iPad

    Do you reckon that Apple is shifting their "annual" release dates from March to October? Is it possible that the iPad was always intended to be only an interim product? Inquiring minds want to know! BTW, I just pre-ordered my iPad 4 to replace my iPad 2. Daughter will inherit the iPad 2.

    Girly wallpapers

    Or you might be able to find an older version of Paint Shop Pro as shareware. At least cheaper than Photoshop if you don't already have one or the other. I made mine with Paint Shop Pro 7.0. It took me a while to determine format (I used JPEG) & size (1280x1024) You can see some other people...

    One app to read them all? (ebooks that is)

    A possible work-around (since you want to keep your DRM) might be similar to what I do. I use a combination of 'Calibre' & 'Dropbox'. Calibre is a (free) DB manager for your books, & Dopbox is 'cloud' storage (2GB free, if you need more - there is a cost). By keeping my Calibre libraries (one...

    Easiest Way to Transfer Files from PC to iPad? Frustrated User Needs Help!

    Thanks to The Archangel's leading the way to personal cloud storage, I have purchased a Western Digital 2 TB My Book Live. I now have my own cloud with 2 TB & with the WD2go app, I (and my authorized users) can get to it from anywhere on the Internet. It's much better than a few GB on Dropbox...

    Air Print for IPad

    Thanks for the tip. Unfortunately it came a week too late. I had just bought an HP Photosmart 7510 All-in-one printer so I could print from my iPad. Now I have two printers I can print to. :p

    Easiest Way to Transfer Files from PC to iPad? Frustrated User Needs Help!

    I feel your pain, believe me. If you find a solution, I'd like to know it. I'd bet your not a Mac or other Apple computer user (as neither am I - iPad is my first Apple product). This is probably not a solution to your problem since it is a one at a time (as far as I know) but I use Dropbox...

    Splashtop desktop remote for ipad

    AS all have said, it does what it says and I use it a lot. However, I do find the iPad's touchscreen a little 'clunky' for mousing. Also I have a large screen monitor (old eyes). Splashtop on the iPad of course has a smaller screen and it does cause my computer's windows to decrease in size and...

    IPad User Guide

    Have to agree with you. Never thought I'd own an Apple product but am in love with my iPad 2. But also hate it and am frustrated with it too. E.g. I tried to separate several pictures into albums. Only trouble they don't move to the new album, they copy so I end up with the same picture in two...

    Can't text anyone who doesn't have ios5

    You might look at the 'TextNow' app. It might give you a solution to your texting problem, all-be-it via a different app. Of course with the wifi only iPad, you'll have to have a nearby wifi to use it.

    Face time

    There is another similar app called Tango. There is also an Android version of Tango. It's not as slick as FaceTime but has one advantage - you can restrict it to audio only or audio only one way and audio/video the other way. Might be worth a try. It's a free app & I can vouch for it working...

    Question For 16g Owners?

    I also have the AirStash for movies. It works well with my Vulkano DVR. However my normal use is some music (less than 6 GB, over 1500 tunes) & ebooks (a few hundred). I've never had any problem with the 16 GB memory. Got the Airstash more because I'm a gadget freak than that I needed it. I only...

    iPad download sites ?

    If you have a Vulkano DVR, you can DL any video that you've recorded on it to your iPad 2 using the Vulkano app. You can also DL it to your PC for viewing or burning to DVD although you may need to change the video format from MP4 to MPG. This may not get the results you're seeking but it's...

    DOS like File Manager

    I have a question - If I have an ebook in epub format that I've opened with iBook, then iBook knows where it is. Then maybe I find another ebook reader and open the same ebook with it & it also knows where the ebook. With Apples system, of course I don't have a clue & will have to import it...

    DOS like File Manager

    Only trouble is, it's not what 'you'd like' but what 'Steve Jobs'd like'. I admit you're right in many respects but the "file" is what I'm interested in, not the app. There may be several apps that can do something with a particular file type, e.g. ebooks & ereaders. But if an ebook is somehow...

    Facetime issue

    Take a look at the "Tango" app. It is similar to Facetime but also can connect to Android devices. In some ways it's not as slick as Facetime but it allows 3 options; Video both ways, Video one way & audio only the other way, or just audio both ways. It's a free app and maybe will do better for...

    Smart cover user? If so what color? If not then what case do you use?

    Will 16GB be satisfactory?

    Cloud computer storage is great as long as you can get to the cloud. There will be, however, times & places where you can't. So if you're totally dependent on cloud storage, you'll be SOL. :(

    Calibre & iTunes (a couple's counseling workshop)
