I'm currently using a brand new iPad 2 and iPhone 4S with the latest software. For some reason, Safari keeps lagging whenever I type in the address bar. Not sure what to do? Tried most things apart from restoring.
I surely can't be the only one to have this issue, but I've searched and can't find any discussion.
Often, whenevever I begin typing a URL in the Safari address bar, the application freezes after I type the first letter, for what seems like 10-20 seconds. It's very annoying and it also happens on my iPhone and iPod.
I'm guessing it has something to do with the URL history loading.
Hfirst of all I own a 64 GB wifi only iPad. It's jail broken and I filled it with apps and some movies and now it's at 59 GB. I have only 5 books in my iBooks library and I use the Youtube app often to download some videos. However lately when downloading a video and launching it the iPad crash and it takes about 4 minutes for it to recover back. and the video's I downloaded get removed for some reason (I think it's like recovery mode). And it's been lagging alot and Apps are crashing very often. And some time it reboot for no reason. I think it's a really bad situation however I don't want to format it. Is is the cydia apps that are causing this or the large amount of storage I have is causing this?
For two days I received the IOS 5.1-Update for my IPad 2 16 GB WiFi and installed it after downloading it. So far, the update process worked well and after 5 min. The IPad was back again, ready to work. Since that day I realize problems with that IPad while working with it. Sometimes it freezes for maybe one or two seconds. Nothing happens, no reaction on tapping the screen or pressing the home-button. Then, after that freeze, it continues working from the same point. This error is not repeatable at one concrete point in a program, but happens mostly during playing Angry Birds. I created a backup and resetted the IPad to the factory settings and restored the backup. After that process the problem seems to be better, but not solved. The lagging-time is shorter, maybe half a second.
I have owned 3 ipads in the 2 years that they have been out. I love the form factor but I always get frustrated with how slow they are to load pages. The ipad 2 was a step in the right direction, but still lags behind any decent computer in rendering a page, and wifi throughput. I got rid of my ipad 2 a few months ago.While perusing the thread with ipad retina wallpapers, I noticed that it took a good 2-3 seconds to render the photos on my macbook air. This was on a 30 mbps fiber line. Unless they have really, really bumped up the horsepower, and ram on the ipad I'm afraid that it will lag terribly trying to push all those pixels. My main wish even over the display, was for faster browsing.
Thinking of stepping up my case on my iPad and was looking at the otterbox defender case. I currently have the apple case and love it for typing but was wonder how the OBD held up for typing on it in the raised stance. It looks great for watching a video, but looked a little high in the pics for typing. Can any one toss me some personal experience typing on the Defender int he cradle stand position?
Is the virtual keyboard big enough? Perhaps not for heavy-duty word processing, but how about for instant messaging or on-the-fly editing? What is the best way to type? Portrait or landscape? Thumbs like the iPhone, or 5-fingered like a Mac? Any tips/tricks/strategies for getting the highest wpm out of the device?
I'd like to get the impressions of the new owners of the ipad on typing. I was thinking of using it to type the book i'm writing. I assume it supports microsoft office for Mac and I hope that the keyboard is just like a regular keyboard.
On the iPhone I get tremendous typing lag on some sites with a "busy background" if you know what I mean (textures and pictures around the text box you're typing in). The iPhone will basically acknowledge every key press but lag in inputting them. The confirmation animation for a key press will occur almost when the phone sees fit. I hoped the 3GS would solve this, but it didn't. Guess the processor in the 3GS wasn't even strong enough. What about the iPad? Any typing lag ever? I'm hoping this is remedied with such a more capable processor, but if not it's hardly a dealbreaker. I barely type on those sites and if I do I can just copy and paste. But still...
Former wrist problem sufferer here. Back when i worked full time, i had to have my keyboard low, and tilted to the back to keep my wrists in line with my arms.Today, i can height adjust my chair and use the Apple keyboard on my MBP, and it is "good enough". I basically type with my arms on the desk and no pressure on the wrists.I love typing on my ipad in my lap. i'm fast at it (i think anyway), and it works well. Except i do miss the space bar a lot with my thumb for some reason. Still working on that aspect!But i can't type on my daughters in the Apple Case with the tilt. It bugs my wrists, i'm slow, and i quickly decided that it was not a priority for me to have a case with an angle.
Now that the iPad has almost been out for a month, what is your favorite case for being able to type conformtably? I bought the Apple case the day the iPad came out but I dont't really like it. I've been wanting to get the Incase Convertible Book Jacket but my Apple store has been sold out since it came out. Is there any other cases better than the Incase convertible jacket that can do the same stuff? I mainly want it for the low angle that props it up so I can type.
This is the second time my Ipad2 is typing like crazy on its own. The first time it happened was a couple of weeks ago and it was restored at the Apple Store. Now it is happening again and my important notes were erased in the course of that crazy typing. Would Apple replace my Ipad2?
In the last month though, it's been 99.9% perfect in this regard. In fact, with auto correct, my typing on the iPad has been about on par with typing on my Mac Pro depending on context, messages or urls. (Apple bluetooth keyboard)
Would be nice if the ipad had a notebook application that would make it possible to write as an alternative to typing. This for me will make the ipad truly complete. Does anyone know if the smart folks at Apple are thinking about this?
Typing in portrait is better than anticipated but still quite a stretch for our average-sized hands, which means that letters like F G and H will take a moderate conditioning for some. What about in landscape mode, sitting flat on the table? Well this is problematic too, as the iPad sort of wobbles. The back is not perfectly flat, meaning your typing surface is never perfectly flat, so the virtual keyboard becomes that much more difficult to use.Sounds passable for a media consumption device, but seriously, this thing's got its own version of iWork?you're supposed to type on it. That explains the giant hardware keyboard attachment,
In places where I need to do sensitive lower case typing like on username and passwords fields, my iPad will automatically make the first letter a Capital one. How do I change that capital letter to a lower case one?
My 3G iPad will arrive god-knows-when, but in the meantime, I'm trying to grab whatever accessories are necessary before they sell out. I'm eye-ing an InCase sleeve for it, but before I pull the trigger, I'm curious about how necessary people find the angled cases for comfort of typing?
I just thought it might be interesting to see how everyone has been enjoying the keyboard so far for the iPad? I really enjoy typing on it (in landscape mode). I have actually made most of my posts on here from my iPad!
Does anyone else have this issue: Brand new iPad (goes without saying), surf in safari for a bit, tap the search or address bar, start typing and the iPad stops responding. A few seconds later, whatever you typed appears. I've noticed this in Mail, Pages, EverNote, etc.
It does not happen every time, but on occasion when a popup for "Undo Typing" or "Choose a Wifi Network" shows up while typing, the popup window is under the keyboard. The keyboard is disabled while the popup is there, so the hide keyboard button does not work. The visible buttons on the popup are usable, but are rarely what I want to select. I can just use the home button, but in Safari this usually means I lose whatever I was typing at the time. It doesn't sound like much of a bug, but it is very annoying. I have turned off "Ask to Join Networks", but I can't find a way to turn off "Undo Typing". Is there a way to turn off this feature?
I'm sure you all get these questions all too often, but here it is again. I am a freshman in college, I have a first gen. MacBook Air. I love it, but if I can sell it and get an iPad instead, I would. I have done a bit of research on the topic.I have found some concerns being that the iPad can't multitask, sync with printers, and does not always export Pages (does Pages on iPad have a word count?) docs. correctly. Are these true?I don't use CD's, so that won't be a problem. A list of things I would use it for are as follows:1. Printing2. Typing up docs.3. Doing research for papers 3. Doing research for papers 4. Note taking (are there any good apps for this function? I use Evernote on my Air)
