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?
