Ugly Background Picture
I love the iPad, but I can't figure out why Apple introduced it to the world with that ugly background picture/wallpaper. Anyplace we can go to see the other ones that are on the iPad out of the box? (Yeah, I have plenty of my own photos I'll be using, too)

Safari Can't Queue Links Or Open Them In Background
Has anyone found a workaround for Safari's lack of an "Open in Background" option? I assume Apple left that feature off since the iPad is a little light on RAM (presumably for cost and power consumption considerations), and can't preload too many pages simultaneously.

But a way to queue up links would be useful. As is, if I want to finish browsing a page before going to other linked pages, I need to:

1 Tap-and-hold a link
2 Choose "Open in New Page"
3 Wait a second for the new page to start loading
4 Tap the window manager
5 Tap the original page
6 If the original page has a lot of content, wait for it to reload
7 Repeat steps 1-6 for each link

Step 6 is the most inconvenient: large pages with lots of images take a while to load and almost always need to reload even if only one other window has been opened.

I'm surprised there isn't an "Add to Queue" option in Safari's tap-and-hold context menu (with the "Queued" folder available through the bookmarks button).

Multitasking And Play Music In The Background Using Safari
Hi folks. New to the forum. This looks like a great place. Not sure if this has been posted before but I thought other iPad owners might like this workaround.

I think most of us are bummed that you cannot run music streaming services like Pandora simultaneously while running another app (ie browsing) due to the inability of 3rd party Apps to multitask.

Apparently Apple's apps (Safari, iTunes, Mail are exempt) so here is the workaround:

1) Go to a site that streams music via their web site (that doesn't use flash but an embedded HTML link). Try for example.
2) Click on their streaming link and an embedded Quicktime player will start up and after buffeting some data it will start to play. Both mp3 and AAC streams will work.
3) Leave the page open and playing and click on the iPad's Home button to go and select another App
4) Voila. Background streamed music w/o iTunes!!! Not exactly Pandora but there are a lot of great Streaming stations out there

Try these ETN links: has a HUGE catalog of stations of all different types of music.

Once the stream is playing, you can also bookmark the station using the "Add to Home Screen" option for quick launches.

I've tried running a bunch of different Apps and as long as the App isn't pumping out audio too the stream you opened in the background Safari window keeps playing.

Found Continuous Background Audio Playback Using Safari?
The other day I discovered that playing embedded mp3 audio and podcast, with the help of HTML5, continue to playback even while browsing other applications and web pages. Though primitive in nature, this is surely an oversight on Apples part. To turn the audio off you must either begin to play audio from another source within the iPad or return to the original browser and tap the pause icon. Online music services need to hop on this pony quickly. Multitasking Lives!

Some other tips and easter eggs are in the vid as well.

Saving A Photo On My IPad 2 In Safari That Has A Transparent Background
I am saving a photo on my iPad 2 in Safari that has a transparent background. When I go to Photos to check the photo, there is another photo in the background of the thumbnail. When I click on the thumbnail to enlarge it, the background photo disappears. Background photos seem to be randomly picked from others in my photostream...even ones that have been deleted. What is going on?

I've even imported all of my photos into iPhoto and deleted the photos on my iPad. When I save the photo again, same thing. The thumbnail has another photo for a background...

I just tried editing the photo. When I 'enhance' the photo, the background turns white, and the background photo that was there in the thumbnail is now gone... but so is the transparent background...

Safari Doens't Show Background Image When Sliding Page Left
I display a web page with a large-width photo (say 2000 pixels jpg file) & a repeat small background image in mobile Safari & the right part of photo is beyond the screen.

I touch & slide the page left to see right part but found there's no background image below the right part but only white blank background.

Does anyone know how to make Safari display the background image below the right part?

Can't Change Pdf Pages In Safari
I recently bought the iPad 3, and so far so good, But i just encountered a problem:

I was browsing through my course documents in safari and when i click on pdf files i can only see the first page, i cant scroll to other pages or anything.

I tried to download the adobe reader app but it didnt do much, according to the manual you can just "open in" but i couldnt find such option.

Also is there a way to download the pdf files into newsstand or adobe reader?

Change The Behavior Of Safari Tabs
This is my number one problem with the iPad...when visiting a site like the forums here or gizmodo etc. I like to open lots of pages in different tabs while scrolling down the list...then go read the stories or threads one at a time. However on the iPad whenever you open a new tab it automatically selects there any way to have tabs open in the background...seems like it should be a switch in settings, but I couldn't find one.

Change Password That Safari Remembers
Currently have safari asking me if it wants to save my user and passwords. I had it remember my info for a certain site, but Ive changed my password. When I go to the site it already has the info in, when I change the password already there to the new one and sign in, the popup comes up to ask if it wants to save it, but then safari crashes. If I just click log in, with the old password on there, and the next screen takes me to the "password is incorrect" page, I can put in my new one and log in, but it won't ask me to save.I know I can go in settings and delete all the stored info, but I just want to delete this one. Any way to do so?

Won't Work With Safari / Can't Change Home Page
I think I know the answer to this one, but I want to confirm. My friend recently bought an ipad and I was helping him learn how to use it. He wanted to change the home page in Safari to go to his MSN mail account instead of to Apple. Can you change the Safari home page? If not- are there other browser apps that you could recommend that do allow you to change it?

I showed him how to save his MSN page to one of the iPad screens and he would like to change the icon to a different picture. Is that capability there yet?

Safari Hands Off EBooks To Stanza, Not IBooks. How To Change That?
I have my eBooks collection on my university office computer and I use calibre's built-in server to make them available to me wherever I am. I use Safari to obtain a catalog listing of my eBook library and click on a book title link to download it. Safari then presents me with a button labeled "Open in 'Stanza.'" Stanza is an iPhone app that I have to run pixel doubled on my iPad. I would rather Safari let me open it in iBooks which is optimized for the iPad. How do I change that behavior?

Streaming Radio In The Background
While waiting for multi-tasking this Fall, I keep looking for the best solution to streaming Internet radio stations now. I played with running Live365 in Safari (not the app which requires the paid VIP membership), but it seems to be kind of flakey.

My current solution is the free Tunemark app. It has full access to Shoutcast plus you can add custom stations. I've added WFUV, WUNC and WCPE and they all play fine. You can then have the app relaunch whatever stream you are listening to in Safari, so you can listen to it in the background.

Video In Background With Backgrounder?
I just got through jailbreaking my iPad with Spirit. The only reason I wanted to jailbreak it was to allow me to listen to things like Pandora in the background while web surfing.

I'm assuming what I'm wanting to do is relatively impossible right now with the available Cydia apps, but I'd like to be able to jump to Safari while "watching" (or listening) to video via either the native iPad Video app or YouTube. I'd like the video to continue playing and be able to hear the audio of the video or movie I'm watching. Is there a setting in Backgrounder or anywhere else to allow me to do this?
