In order that I can receive the same emails on my iMac as well as my iPhone and iPad, I need to add a colon to my User name.For example recent:email@example.com I have colons on the keyboards of the first two but I cannot find one on the iPad. I have tried the three keyboards 123, ABC and #+= but cannot find it. Am I doing something wrong? Information : iPad Mac OS X (10.6.5)
Along with my ipad i got a keypad, not wireless. i did so to be able to charge the ipad on my desk , while using my pc to make some uploads. THe problem is that it does nothing of this at all, as i plug it in , on the right top hand corner a writing appears saying "not charging", and as i connect it to itoons i go on ipad but it dosent open any options.
While I myself am not finding an immediate need for an iPad - I can't deny that there are some that will actually benefit from having one beyond it being a luxury item.I am speaking of those who have medical conditions which would render a regular keypad useless.The size and touch ability of the iPad makes it perfect for stroke victims who have lost their speech to communicate. Anyone with limited mobility in their hands/fingers as well
this is really useless - I mean literally useless - but you CAN connect a PS3 bluetooth wireless keypad if you have one laying around to the apple iPad.
The typing speed brings back memories of the palm pre and slightly bigger feel than the TMobile DASH (made by HTC). I can actually type faster using my onscreen keypad than this piece of crap but hey, it works!
Just passing info along...in case some of you are curious.
video on how to sync it:
1) Turn on your iPad bluetooth
2) HOLD DOWN BLUE DOT (UPPER LEFT CORNER) of ps3 bluetooth keypad, then power on by flipping the on/off switch to ON position; HOLD the blue corner after powering on until lights flash
3) tap the connected device in the iPad bluetooth settings
4) enter in the code written on the dialog box and that's it.
I just got my Ipad2. All is good, but from time to time, I find myself unable to type into a field because the keyboard won't pop up. It just happened in a program on the Internet, but about 4 times earlier today I've noticed it when I've returned to the iPad after being away for a few minutes. The sign in screen has a tiny lock in upper right corner, a large field to enter my password in, but no keyboard.
Is there a limitation on how many keyboard devices can be used at once? I have a third party bluetooth keyboard and keypad set. Each of them was recognized and paired with the iPad okay. However it only connects to one device or the other. Never both at the same time. Is this a limitation of the iPad software? (also of note: the keypad works okay with the exception of the enter key. It worked okay for the purpose of typing in the code to pair the device with the iPad, but not when in general use.
I just noticed recently that some forums and websites the keypad does not pop up when hitting the screen in the message "block". I am writing this question on my laptop. Quite ironic that I have to use my laptop to ask a question about my ipad on an ipad forum?
Since iOS 8.1, when I am using the Google search engine, the iPad Air standard keyboard (not a third party keyboard) disappears after the first letter is entered into the search box. The box is moved to the top of the screen and the keyboard is not visible. It is as if it has started the search after the first letter is entered into the box. It is not every time, but most of the time, probably about 90%.
This also happens on web pages. Various ones.
I do not have any third party keyboards installed, therefore I am not using one either. The iPad has been turned completely off, all apps have been closed down, all the things we are told to do have been done.
I have not been paying attention as to whether it is happening in Pages, Numbers, etc. I don't think it does. I have been using them the last couple weeks and don't recall it happening with those two apps. I think it is just in Safari.
I am using an iPad Air (the largest storage capacity) and am running iOS 8.1. I would post this in the general forum, but my husband is using an iPad Mini and has not said he is having that issue and I don't see it happening on my iPhone 5. Both of these are running iOS 8.1. Therefore, I am thinking it is an iPad Air issue.
Over the last couple of days I have had this problem. When I awaken my iPad the box for my pass code appears, but I can't get the keypad to come up to allow me to enter the code. Usually a reboot will get it back but sometimes even then I have to play with it a while to get the keypad to appear. I've currently disabled my passcode for fear I won't have a way to unlock.
That is what's happening with my iPad, all icon shrunk, key pad is iPod size, icons all spaced out, dock restricted to 4 icons. This happened after upgraded to 4.2.1 and jb with Greenpois0n. This happened after re-booting and installed with some iphone apps from cydia. I removed all installed iphone apps from Cydia and and it went back to normal. It happened one more time, I reset activator to default and resprung and it became normal again. I am wondering if iphone apps from cydia is compatible with 4.2.1?
Upgraded iPad Air 1 to latest version of ios8. Now the screen is set so that when I try to enter my facebook id and password the key pad covers the text boxes for name and password. It is a pain. I think the key pad blocks several other apps as well, but I can't think f them now.
Whenever I would start to use the keypad for typing, like i am doing now writing this post, the keyboard would jump down (disappear) and then spring back up. it really is an unsettling experience when trying to type something. but usually after it does it the first time, you can continue typing. is this a new bug in the system? (ipad 4th gen using about a year now).
