I've been pondering about the idea of whether or not to buy an ipad. Ive come to the conclusion that im gonna do it. 16gb will be sufficient enough memory for me. The big question is do i go for the wifi or wifi + 3g.Is having 3g really worth an extra ?100. any opinions and personal experience will be much appreciated. secondly where is the best cheapest place to buy from and are they currently readily available?
Memory Sufficient - Web Browsing
The current iPad is configured with only 256mb of memory. I'm confused why this is enough memory to browse the web, while in reading the Mac Mini forums anything less than 2gb memory for the Mini is considered a performance degradation. Could they be talking about heavier duty Mac OS X apps in needing 2gb rather than for web browsing?
Out Of Memory In My 16gb And Erased Already Things ?
I dont have what to delet I planed so much Apps Practucal Games Songs Videos that i take and photos Videos More There isnt room for tiny part of it If i backup to my pc and delet from ipad will it be deketed also automaticly from my pc or itunes ? Its not like with oc or laptop that i can move things to a disconkey and the will be safe
In deciding between the 16/32/64 models, I can't see the iPad being my iPod replacement, since it's dorky to walk around with a 10" screen listening to music. Rather, I need to iPad for email and web browsing, hence, I can't see the need for extra memory -- UNLESS the extra memory makes the iPad go faster when web browsing.
Self Sufficient - Upload Photos
iPad has the potential to replace PCs in most homes because few people need a full PC to browse the web, e-mail, organize their music, video and photos. The current first generation iPad doesn't allow a user to get rid of their PC however. You must pair your iPad to a PC/Mac version of iTunes and you can only back up your data via a computer. What will it take to make iPad self-sufficient?An improvement in the Photos and Videos apps or iPad versions of iPhoto and iMovie would solve the first shortcoming. Cloud computing will solve the remaining ones. A mobileMe upload of all your photos, media and app files would allow you to keep all your data safe and also allow cloud streaming to an AppleTV.
Camera Connector Kit Cannot Supply Sufficient Power To The Unit
I've got an iPad Camera Connector Kit, which allows you to connect many peripherals via USB. I was hoping to use it with this product, the Shure X2u XLR-USB Signal Adapter (I can't post a link yet, but if you google "Shure X2u XLR-USB Signal Adapter" including the quotes around it the relevant product page at Shure.com is the first on the page of results). This would allow me to do location audio recording with the several high-quality microphones I already own, rather than have to buy a (possibly inferior) USB microphone. I bought an X2u cheaply (A$75), used. My iPad had not yet been delivered so I was unable to test it first, but the device is fully functional when used with a PC.
Unfortunately, the Camera Connector Kit can not supply sufficient power to the unit to power up the Shure X2u. I get a message to this effect when I try to use it with my iPad. Is there anyway to provide additional power from a battery to the Shure? I know that using a USB hub can do the job, but since I want to use this for location recording, away from a computer of power socket this won't help me. Elsewhere it was suggested to me that a USB splitter plug might work, with the Camera kit connected to one plug of the Y-splitter, a USB battery to the other, and the Shure to the third.
Sufficient Resolution - How Much Text Benefited From Retina Display Especially At Smaller Sizes
As an iPod Touch 4G user, I've never really noticed how much text benefited from the Retina Display, especially at smaller sizes, i look at a friend's iPod Touch 2G today. It was much more fuzzy, and I found myself having to increase the size of the text to make it easier to read. Here's are my questions to iPad users: Is this problem present on the iPad? Is it worth waiting for a resolution bump to buy as I do not immediately need one?
Short Version: Got "Low Memory" warning today! Is there an App to manage the memory usage? (to list what apps/items are using what amount of memory?)
Yes... Of COURSE I have installed many apps.Lots of News apps. (Reuters, NPR, NYT, BBC, Weather Channel, several others) Lots of the solitaire apps. Several simple games. None of the really high graphic ones. Sticky notes, Drawing programs. Lots of other apps. NO music yet. NO photos yet.
I haven't even started syncing any files from the desktop machine. So, is there anything to analyze where my heavy memory use is?
Any Regrets For 16gb?
I also have a 9" Asus netbook and a desktop. The screen on the netbook is lacking though. A little too small and poor viewing angle. I like the ipad because the screen looks great to me, no wait time to boot and loong battery life. I plan to use the ipad for web surfing, netflix, slingbox and a few apps/games while on the couch and around the house. If I need to take it outside, I'll use Mywi on my iphone. So the question for you is: Do you regret going with only 16gb? Why?
Fastest Way To Get A 16gb
I want to surprise my uncle with a 16gb Ipad so he can take it on vacation, June 3rd.I placed an order on store.apple.com. They estimate 7-10 days to begin shipment. I will upgrade to overnight shipping if need be.I have also been put on a waiting list at The Apple Store and Best Buy.Have I exhausted all my options? What are my chances of getting one before June 3rd? I'm located in Northern California.
Best Between 32gb Or 16gb
which version should I get 32gb or 16gb...is the extra 100.00 worth the extra space if the ipad is basically just a expensive gadget to play around with. Plan on using it for refence videos while using laptop to run 3ds max and after effects and computer animation programs. Also use it to reference pictures when I am drawing portraits. I do plan on general surfing and playing cool apps while being a couch potato.
How Many Movies Will 16GB Fit?
Probably something that has been asked a million times but I have not seen many good answers. I am hoping to put about 6-7 hours of movies downloaded from itunes on a 16GB.
16gb Wi Fi - Convertible Stand
I bought a 16gb wi-fi iPad in September, and the gf dropped it yesterday on pavement. It was in my incase convertible stand/case, but the tiny bit that's exposed got all scratched up (right by the lock button). The frame is also bent. The device works perfectly including the buttons, and you can't really tell when it's in the case but it's driving me completely insane
16GB Enough - Getting Pages - Numbers
I have pre-ordered a 16GB 3G version. I am now having a few reservations about the 16GB size. I want the Ipad, basically, for web surfing and gaming. We have netflix, so I will stream most of the things I would want to watch, but there will be some times when I would like to put some newer movies on it, like when going on vacation.I was toying with the idea of putting my work documents on it as well which would result in me getting Pages, Numbers, and Keynotes. My work documents are about 700 MB.
16gb Or 32 Gb In Safe Mode
im really having trouble deciding if i should cancel my 16gb and go for the 32gb.A: I dont want to lose my place in the order que and then something happens and i dont get it on the 3rd even though it says it will still deliver.I currently have a 16gb iphone and have 7gb left on it with only 1 movie on it and some music. Im wondering if the new ebooks and ipad apps will take up even more space than normal apps. What do you guys think, should i just go with 32gb to be safe?
Is 16gb Enough - Netflix For Movies
For those who have had a chance to use the ipad 3g for a while - just want to know if 16gb is enough. I will be using netflix for movies, podcasts will be downloaded to my iphone, i might use the ipad for photo galleries. What do you have on your ipad and is 16gb enough?
Kindle Applications - 16gb 3g
Expecting to purchase my IPAD on Friday. I want to download all of my SONY ebook books to the IPAD, there is not APP like Kindle and Barnes and Nobles. How can I do this? Will it work with say the "Kindle" app??
16gb Wi-fi - Location Services
I have a 16gb wi-fi iPad. Originally set it up at my home in Illinois. I am now at another location for 5 months, and I can't figure out how to get ipad to recognize this location. I am using the same computer and router that I use in Illinois and I suspect that may be the problem. How do I get iPad to recognize current location as numerous apps require it? Many apps, i.e. weather etc. I can simply change zip code, but others require the location services setting on iPad. My brain just isn't connecting on this one.
Performance - 16GB Version
I bought the 16GB version and I am thinking about taking it back for the 32 instead. What happens when it gets down to only 1 or 2GBs free? Will it slow down and get glitchy?
What Is The Actual Capacity Of 16gb?
I'm trying to decide on what size iPad I should go for and have a question. For a 16gb iPad, how much of that is actually available for photos, music etc. or to put it another way, how much does the iPad os use for itself ?
IPad 3 - From 16GB To 64GB
One of the Apple Stores in NYC made an exception for me because I was beyond 14 days and allowed me to exchange my Black 16GB Wifi iPad 3 for a 64GB version Wifi! They only had White which was fine with me. The first one I opened up had like 4 dead pixels but the second has 2 tiny ones. I may decide to exchange but for now I don't notice them at all.
I got so tired of watching how many large Retina optimized games or just huge games period I could download. I was down to 1GB! I also kept having to delete apps I didn't use. Now, I can relax and download without worry since I never filled my iphone 4S 64GB either. I'm so blessed to have the 64GB!
16GB White Wifi IPad 2 Available
Just got the call from Best Buy, but I no longer need this one (still waiting on a 64GB black wifi). Anyone living in the Oak Lawn area that still needs one can have it at cost.
16gb Pad - Email - Connect To Facebook
We have a main PC at home, but because my husband downloads such a lot, it is sluggish and even my daughter's old Dell laptop runs faster! It frustrates me because I am such a "tidy" person on the PC and even my mobile. I delete e mails, messages, photo's are edited and uploaded then deleted mainly. This Pad would be used solely by ME (grin). I am sometimes bed bound because I have a severe back problem and have been using my husband's I Touch to e mail and connect to facebook and even watch I Player. However, I find it very frustrating to browse through web pages, as I'm all over the place.
SD Card Reader - 16GB Or The 32GB
So, just wonder, because it is advertised that this device can be used to "import photos and videos" from a digital camera. Well, I was wondering how that works?? (And why specifically from a camera?) Couldn't I just store some quick time movies on there and then use those? Also, I was wondering if it allows you to transfer only or can you stream the media right off of the SD card? Just wondering because this is one of my make-or-break questions for me getting the 16GB or the 32GB.
Waiting List Question - 16GB 3G
Called my local Apple store last night (I put my name on the waiting list 5/18), and was told I was No. 83 in the que. Does anyone know with certainty if this refers to an overall list, or this specific the the model I want (16GB 3G)?
MiFi - 16GB WiFi Windows
im tempted to get a 3 Mobile PAYG MiFi unit for the holidays.First of all will it even work on an iPad?.If i buy it the UK will it work in France? Information:Sony VPCEB1MOE, iPhone 3GS,iPad 16GB WiFi Windows 7 64 bit
Screen Protector - 16GB Of Storage
I have read a lot about how the iPad hardware is less than ideal. How does this affect the user experience though? Do you find your iPad slow/wishing it had more RAM?Do you need a screen protector on it? I have had a lot of experience with different ones on my 3GS and to make a long story short, I will only buy a PowerSupport one, don't try to convince me otherwise. The problem is I'm in Canada and it costs $48 (including $21 shipping) to get a PS screen protector up here which is just ludicrous. Can a microfiber cloth clean the fingerprints prints off easily? How often do you clean your "naked" iPad? Does the iPad scratch easily? I've never used an iPod/iPhone before without a screen protector but I am always *extremely* careful with my stuff. I don't just let anyone grab it and play with it. Do you find it costs too much money for what you get? I know I'm only getting 16GB of storage but honestly I can't fill my 16GB 3GS either, its barely half full.
16GB Jailbrake - Cydia Apps
I have just jailbroken my 16GB IPAD and I want to what i can do with it know and were can i download free apps from and also on the cydia app it says (this device has a pending TSS request)can someone please explain to me what that is all comments will be read i would just like some more information on what i can now do with it
16GB Wifi - Auto Brightness
i have a 16GB wifi ipad and the auto brightness does not seem to work? no matter where i set it if i switch it to auto the screen remains at the same brightness?noticed it yesterday when i took it outside and it didnt bring the screen brightness up so i couldnt see a thing outside so i had to put it to max manually.
Unable To Decide -16gb Is Enough Or 32gb?
If I will be using my iPad primarily for iBooks (a couple hundred ibooks) and iWork documents (maybe 100 different documents), how much memory will I need? Right now,I have about 7gb worth of music,photos, and apps on my iPhone.Also,if I subscribe to video podcasts,will that take a lot of memory as well?Can I get by with a 16gb?
Unable To Decide - 32gb Wi-Fi 0r 16gb 3G?
While I'll be gaining 3G capability (may only use it a few times), I'll be losing 16gb worth of storage. I don't know if the trade is worth it. I don't think I'll be using the 3G much (though it's nice to have the option), but currently I don't use even half of the 16gb on my 32gb iPad.Anyone have any input or advice?
Changing 32GB To 16gb 3g - Worth Or Not ?
Am sure people will come up with some comments about this , but am not using ipad for movies , and have filled up with a lot of photos and apps etc and still dint reached even 4 GB.So, was just thinking to get rid of 3g 32GB Ipad for a 16gb 3g ipad. Do you people think am right ? The reason is i dont own a gadget for a long time
i anyhow will sell it in 6 months time for a new revision of ipad anyway.And with regards to apple case, i wanted to give it back as its getting dirty easily.Am I right in thinking to give it back and exchange for smaller storage one?
3G Model - 16Gb Enough Or Would 32 Or Even 64GB Only Acceptable
