    Thanks, I appreciate it. I Looked at what you described and it's different in my app. Maybe you have an older version of the app. I did find where you mentioned the featured, Just added, Popular, Marvel , DC comics, and then My Comics. No Free catagory, but spotted the 3 dots in the top left had...

    How to find Free comics in the Comics app?

    Hi, I downloaded the Comics app by comixology last night after reading on a forum that there are Lots of Free comics to read on the app. I downloaded the app, saw on for FREE and downloaded it. Then when I search for others, they all have to be paid for. Unless I was misinformed, I thought there...

    Anybody use the Touchtype Case?

    I was looking as usual for a case to hold my Ipad 3 and my Apple bluetooth keyboard. I came upon this site: Touchtype | Case for iPad + Apple Wireless Keyboard and really like how slim it is and how it also accomodates the Ipad and the apple bt keyboard. I have a targus case that holds both...

    Good Word Games/Puzzle Apps for the iPad? (i.e. Boggle, Scrabble)

    I like WordBreaker. It's like Lingo on the gameshow network. Have to guess 5-7 letter words in a time limit, I have the free version. Spend a lot of time playing this.

    I lost all my videos and music on my IPad

    @DVDCatalyst, no, I didn't have Ipad connected to a different computer. As far as I know, I didn't change anything in Itunes in regards to syncing. I ended up just downloading all the songs I wanted back to my Ipad from Itunes on PC, not as many as before, in case this happens again. I have no...

    Thanks both of you for getting back to me. I tried this morning and the Weprint Helper software I downloaded to my PC after I downloaded the CalPrint, worked with my Printer. Appreciate the response. Glad I knew that before I paid for it.:) @Twerppoet, I already paid for the Fingerprint Software...

    I lost all my videos and music on my IPad

    Tonight I was checking my settings to see how much storage I had left on my 16gb wifi Ipad 3, noticed it was up from 8 gig last time I checked to 11 gig. I knew a bulk of my memory was eaten up by my music I transferred to Ipad when I first got it, so checked the Music app on my Ipad and nothing...

    Having trouble trying to delete emails

    Hi, I googled how to delete a bunch of emails and got a reply from this forum. When I try to do what the reply says, I can't get the same result in the Settings/mail part of the response. Here's how it tells to do it from the quote: "Go to settings/mail and choose the email account... Then...

    Ipad printing

    Yes, you have to look for it on your PC and download Fingerprint to your PC. Also have to have PC on, I believe, to use it on the Ipad. Haven't used it in a little while, so not totally sure on that.

I have Gmail on my android phone and am looking for a different email app for my new Ipad and like other's I've read on the forum, don't particularly like the native email app on the IPad.

    Cursor jumps elsewhere randomly when answering emails

    I've had this same issue before on my Ipad in the native email app. When I"m typing the reply, the cursor moves somewhere else as said above. Very frustrating. Hasn't done it in awhile, but has happened a few times to me also.

    Why no Widget apps on Apple devices?

    I've been looking at the Jailbreaking threads just recently and from what they say it's pretty easy to do. Never did it to my droid. I'm too new at the Ipad to try it yet. I know you can restore it back easily. I guess just afraid to try and if something goes wrong. Not sure exactly what the...

    Why no Widget apps on Apple devices?

    I've been looking for just a weather widget. I'm spoiled with the Widgets on my Android Phone, but I did some research and it seems there were some widget apps for Ipads back in 2010 or 2009, but not anymore. What is the reason for this? I had a weather app that showed the temp on the Icon, but...

    Is Smartcover Turning my Ipad ON after I power off?

    I was doing it to conserve battery. Not that I had any battery problems. I always plug in my phone at night to charge. Only have one extension cord on my desk, so when I need to plug in my Ipad to charge, just make sure my phone is fully charged. I've left Ipad on before and didn't use up a lot...

    Is Smartcover Turning my Ipad ON after I power off?

    Hi, I was wondering why my smartcover sometimes turns the Power ON with my Ipad. Every night I Power Off the Ipad and sometimes the next day it's on already when I open the smartcover. My understanding is the Smartcover only puts the Ipad to sleep/awake. It does this properly when I leave the I...

    Ipad keyboard useful and nice to use?

    I have the Apple Bluetooth Keyboard for my Ipad. I really like it and it's very responsive, only thing I hate is that I can't find a case that holds both the Apple keyboard and the Ipad. I wish I would have waited and did more research on the keyboards available that did come in a case/folio...

    Security problems with Skype for Ipad

    I've had the same thing happen on my Ipad Skype app. I few weeks ago I had a call from some stranger, never happened on my PC. Hope this doesn't happen a lot. I haven't really used my skype app on my Ipad since that time, so don't know if it's still happening or not. I agree, it's not something...

    Find my Iphone App shows Wrong Ipad

    Find my Iphone App shows Wrong Ipad

    I just loaded the Find my Iphone App and when I finished loading it and tried to find my Ipad 3, it shows my Ipad 2 and couldn't find it. I returned my Ipad 2 to best buy and had them restore it and clear my apps/info, then bought the Ipad 3. Is there something I forgot to do when I got my Ipad...

    Problem Saving Contacts in Icloud

    I checked the Kickstarter website and I really like the case too. The Only problem is if you read carefully, it says the guy didn't get enough money to go farther with it and the project was cancelled in March of 2011. It was looking promising though. I'm in the same situation with an Apple BT...

    I don't know how to help you, but I LOVE Norman Goldman's show on the radio. I listen to him all the time. A real straight talker. Probably my favorite talk show host at the moment.

    Printing to a wired printer

    I've been using Fingerprint on my PC from another Post where Twerppoet recommended it before. Works great with my Ipad. Worth the money. Just have to have the Computer on to use it, like he said. My printer is not a wireless printer.

    USB cable not charging the new iPad even though I'm using the factory 10W charger

    I'm using the USB cable that came with my Ipad 3, it charges fine when it's plugged into an outlet, but when I plug into the USB on my PC I get the Not Charging next to the battery symbol. So is it just a problem with the USB cable charging on the computer?

    Question about the Ipad Camera Connection Kit

    Question about the Ipad Camera Connection Kit

    I'm new to Apple and the Ipad and don't own the Camera Connection Kit. From what I've read, the thing is used to transport photos and videos to your Ipad, via a usb cord connected to your digital camera or an SD card inserted into the Camera Connection kit. Excuse my ignorance, but would I also...

    iPad Case Gallery

    I had the above Incase Mag snap case for my Ipad 2 when I bought it, loved it. Then I decided to return the Ipad 2 for an Ipad 3 and the guy at best buy tried to fit it on and said it wouldn't fit. He said the Ipad 3 was too thick. So i ended up returning it and they gave me a Belkin Clear Case...

    I too, am having problems figuring out this Ipad stuff. I've been googling certain things to find answers and posting on the forum here. I know Ipad is supposed to be easy to use and learn, but finding it not quite as simple as everyone says it is. Anything new takes time to learn. I myself only...

    Loving my Ipad, but.......

    yes, thanks zphone. I do understand Apple is trying to make all their devices work together seamlessly, My point is just that not everyone is the owner of more than one Apple device. The main reason I went with the Ipad over an Android Tablet, is that with Android on my phone, I've noticed...

    Loving my Ipad, but.......

    I get you Daylife. Totally understand what you're saying. I guess being a newbie to the IPad and Apple in general, has me getting a little frustrated sometimes when I can't find an answer to some things. Google is my friend, but I've joined forums like this before and have been helped a lot by...

    Any Way to setup ICloud On PC without Outlook?

    Ok, thanks. I didn't realize. I just read on the Icloud Control panel website that it required IE or Safari (which is not a problem) and Outlook 2007 or later. So just figured I needed Outlook. Thanks for the info.
