So I am loving my iPad and all the apps. I've noticed most of the games I play require online access and since I have a wifi version and not always on the internet I was hoping you guys could help me with a list of really good offline games?I have Let's Golf HD which I really like and got N.O.V.A. but haven't played it that much. Any others you think would be good? I'm not a big racing fan but am thinking about getting.
Just got an iPad today, my first iOS device.I'm sharing the iPad with my fiance, but oh well. We love it so far.We've downloaded a few games, and we want to keep our achievements and levels separate, is this possible at all? Can we both play through Cut the Rope, Angry Birds, etc., without having to remember which levels we've both beaten?
I have a few web applications on my iPad that have offline functionality through HTML application caching and client side DBs. These worked great (and still do) under iOS 3, but when I upgraded to iOS 4 they stopped working in offline mode. Has anybody else seen this issue? Is there a problem in iOS 4 with this HTML 5 functionality?
I use my iPad everyday on the subway for a good 45 minutes on my way to work to read news on a number of different apps (New York Times; BBC; WSJ etc.) Problem: Obviously, I don't have any wifi or 3-g reception in the subway. This means that I have to manually go into each app before I leave home in the morning and wait for it to download offline content. Not only that, I have to scroll around to each news section in the app (e.g. I have to click on "headlines", "business", "opinions" etc.) otherwise that section will not get updated. Even after doing this, a lot of times many of the news articles will not have been downloaded and there will be something I really wanted to read on the subway that won't load. Is there an easier way to do this? Is there an app that can "force download" offline content for these apps (for example, at a set time every morning it updates the content for all these apps)?
On the Netflix app, I know it will stream video (movies, TV shows, etc.), but what if you're off wifi (non-3G iPad)? Say, I'm in a train or car, is there any way to watch a Netflix movie on the iPad without wifi? Can you download the movie and watch it off-line? Or is it streaming over wifi only? Information:iPad iPhone OS 3.1.3
I read a LOT of PDFs in my life. I thought the intelligent way would be to read them on the "magical iPad".When I try to save a PDF and read it there seems to be no 'love'. It's hard to get subjects such as "gdb internals" in ebooks via Apple.. Information: Youd have to ask - the list is too large
I have a PDF on a website, and I want to read it and take notes while I'm on a plane.So I'm sitting in the airport with free WiFi, and the plane is boarding. I want to download the PDF so I can continue to view it and take notes in the Notes app on the plane.Is this possible? Or do I need a computer (to download the PDF, then transfer it to the iPad via iTunes)?
I recently downloaded a game called Godfinger, not the funnest thing but it's a good little bit of entertainment. It's one of the better designed (free) games I've run across, makes good use of the iPad's bigger screen.
I was amazed to learn though that you can't even run it outside of a wifi hotspot. So any time I leave the house, go to work, or go up to my cottage, the game is unplayable. Just like a lot of apps I've run across. This may be because I'm running a free-ware version though, and purchasing a fuller game could make it available offline.
Anyway, that was the first issue, and it wasn't a big one because like I said earlier, Godfinger wouldn't be my top pick for number 1 game. I heard of another game called Plants vs Zombies, saw lots of good reviews, and apparently it won 20 game of the year awards. It costs 9.99$, which I would be willing to pay IF the game can be played offline. I can't believe that amongst 50 GB of free space and I-don't-remember-how-much RAM they wouldn't be able to run the game solely from the machine itself.
So the question (for starters) is simply this, can PvsZ only run when connected to the net?
And, if there's someone out there who is more familiar or informed than me at this, could you please tell me approximately the ratio of online-only games that are available compared to offline-playable ones.

Which app lets me read books offline? I tried pocket fiction...but didn't like it..mostly cause I had no idea how to work it. So something like kindle or iBooks but where it lets me buy books and read them offline..if there is such an app as that.
I see jpg files on the web which I wish to save on my NON jb iPad 2 . I have evernote and drop box installed. I use safari browser. I can view the file.but am unable to save it or open it OFFLINE on iPad .
I have been working on a mini-travel guide for my next trip and it is now turning into a beast in size. I was originally just going to PDF it and swipt through goodreader and such, but now I am thinking I want to turn it into an indexed html site.
I am not going to upload it online (I would not even be able to access the majority of the time if I did it anyway), so I was wondering what is the best app or way to get an indexed offline website on to the ipad.
Almost every app on iPad for locating and show location,must to be connected to net!This is very bad limitation,because on trip in some location there is no any connectivity to Internet.I think the better solution is that the app keep track position of device in path only by gps and if it's possible,connects to net and gets map.Is there any app that can download map for iOS so that apps use offline map?
I'm about to buy my first Ipad 2 and am planning to get a WiFi only version. However, I'm not sure how good it's going to be for offline maps as I know it doesn't have GPS capability. I'm doing a US road trip soon (Nashville to New Orleans to Memphis) and ideally would want some maps to help me when driving. They don't need to be turn-by-turn navigation (for which GPS is needed), but just a general A to B to C map (of the kind you might map out on mapquest/google maps and print out with directions). Are there any good Ipad map apps for this? (Note: ideally I don't want to prepare screen shots before and then look at them as photos. So it would be good to be able to download maps for all 4 states I'll be passing through on the trip, TN, AL, LA, MS, and then enter our chosen direction on the road - if that's possible!)Or should I just pay extra and buy the 3G version and then purchase something like MotionX GPS Drive? (I'm not likely to ever use the 3G version for anything else other than the GPS though).
Looking for the 'BEST' software for monitoring of Stock market, US market, or even world wide market, ability to do charting offline with downloads, tracking portfolio and triggering stock alert, real time market news, company news and etc.. anyone can recommend,
I have a Google based work calendar which I have added to the Calendar app.I also use the iPad calendar as my personal calendar. I don't have 3G, just the wifi. When I am not connected, it would be nice to see which days I have work appointments (I am semi-retired and don't work every day).
Is there an easy way to get my work calendar events copied over to my iPad calendar so that I can see all my events even when I am not in a wifi hot spot? Or do I just have to copy each event from my work calendar into my iPad calendar one at a time?
