iPad

iPad is an iOS-based line of tablet computers built around the device's multi-touch screen, including a virtual keyboard. The iPad includes built-in Wi-Fi and cellular connectivity on select models. An iPad can shoot video, take photos, play music, and perform Internet functions such as web-browsing and emailing. Other functions – games, reference, GPS navigation, social networking, etc. – can be enabled by downloading and installing apps.

Hello Experts,
We need a tablet that will only do one thing.  Use the internet browser... and will only browse to one site.
This will mainly be for providing information to those near the device, but want the ability to ask the user a multiple choice question also.

In a perfect world, each time the unit powered on, it would open up the browser and would go automatically to a pre-determined site (And would not be able to go to any other site)

Is it possible to force ANDROID or IPAD to start the browser as soon as it's turned on?  Based on what I've read on EE, it is possible on a windows machine... but assuming that a decent Windows Tablet is going to be a substancially higher price than say an ANDROID tablet.   Having it work on a cheaper unit would be preferable.

Plus with Windows 10 seems like the OS is going to be a lot more.... "overhead" (for lack of a better word) than is needed.   This website will literally be the ONLY thing this device will ever do.

I need to save MS Word and PDF documents to my iPad and iPhone for reference in upcoming meetings.   I emailed myself the documents, which open fine, but when I try to save them I get the option of where to save them ... I don't use iCloud, so I selected to save it to "Save to Files" on my devices.  With both my iPhone and iPad (both with updated operating systems) nothing appears to happen when I select the location, and subsequently the files don't appear when I try to access them through my "Files" app or my Adobe PDF Reader.  Please advise.

Thanks,

Phil

Trying to create a 5-stage tracker, The IPad is the smallest screen this has to work on.
To create the chevrons, I used a rectangle and a diamond.  But the diamond covers the text on the rectangle when in iPad size.
I used z-index to give each step its own layer trying to pull the rectangles above the diamonds.
Here is the fiddle:

If you know of a better way to create this tracker, please share.  this is like the 30th version.  :(

I use to have the Bosch DVR Viewer App on my iPad that worked great.  I broke my iPad and went with the newer Android based Samsung Tablet S3 and am trying to find an app that can view my Bosch DVR700 with no luck.  Bosch DVR Viewer was the program I was using on my iPad but when I load the Android version on my new tablet it does not support the 700 Series....only up to 600 Series.  Does anyone know a download I can use that supports my unit?

When my iPad is connected to my corporate VPN, I do not have access to the internet. On a Windows laptop, I can remove the check under "use remote gateway" and I can still access the internet locally.  How can this be accomplished on my iPad?

Thanks, Jon

I went in to Outlook 2013 today to find all my contacts and calendar events were gone. Somehow they have gotten moved to iCloud. I have tried to reverse this process but now my iCloud contacts are doubled and even if I export from iCloud and import to Outlook all I ever get is the first contact even though if I open the vcf file using Notepad I can see all the contacts, How do I correct this mess?

We've had a user lose an iPad.  The users states that email wasn't set up on it, but there seems to be some doubt and I've been asked to verify.  What I see is device type 'Outlook' syncing.  It gives a device Id -- which I can't determine what it represents.  How do you tell what actual device is using Outlook?  How would I distinguish between Outlook on an iPhone versus Outlook on an iPad?

I get my email service from a hosting site (which is also my DNS provider), which is Namespro.ca, for my personal site which is bissegger.ca.

I have 2 iPads - one iPad mini, and one standard iPad, where I cannot get email to send (stays in the outbox). There is no problem with incoming email.

I have tried a lot of things to address this issue, which I will describe below, but have not been able to resolve the issue - so I am looking for some help.

Here's the background info, and what I have tried:

1. I have set up the email successfully with no problem on my Mac on the first try, and sends and receives correctly, using the same ports and everything. So I do not believe it is a network provider issue.

2. I am using 2 different iPads for testing.
- iPad mini version 9.3.5, and
- iPad standard version 10.3.3
Both are at the latest software version FYI

3. Initially, I thought it may be a certificate issue, so I asked my hosting provider for an alternative to 'mail.bissegger.ca' (where the alternative has a certificate), and they provided one 'lithium.namespro.ca'. I have tried both iPads with both 'mail.bissegger.ca'  and 'lithium.namespro.ca', but no luck with either.

4. I have 2 emails : chuck@bissegger.ca and diane@bissegger.ca on BOTH ipads, and neither work on either ipad. So it is not an email accounts issue. I have deleted all other SMTP servers so there should not be any conflicts.

5. I am pretty IT saavy (I run an IT professional services …

This hasn't happened since we found a fix shared in question 'You need to fix your Microsoft Account for apps ... '.  However, for some reason, it  started again (see pix below):

Message for fix share
This occur when we restart the computer, a Windows 10 Pro box - message: "We need to fix your Microsoft account before you can use shared experiences".

We have run the troubleshooter, made sure that there is no items shared for this email in our iPhone or any other devices that the email is setup, made sure "share across devices" of OFF, also checked that the email is note created in Windows mail of this computer or any other computer and finally reviewed recommendations in the previous question to assure we cover all bases.

This email account ____@outlook.com is only used in  our iPhone and iPad, not on any computers; what it keeps referring to it in this computer?


Thank you in advance.

I have been attempting to fix an issue my website has been having with autoplay and mobile devices. I currently have a little beep that plays when loading the next page. The only way the website can tell if it is supposed to beep is via loading the next page, so I can't just play the beep every time the user jumps from one page to the next. My goal is to get this working on iPads with the latest version of iOS.

I am aware that the <audio> tag's autoplay feature is turned off for mobile devices, requiring user interaction to play audio. So I have been working with Javascript to try to get a beep to play.

So far here are two of my attempts so far:

function beep() {
        ( 
           new  Audio("App_Themes/Default/Images/Ding.mp3" )).play();
}

Open in new window


And this is another attempt:
function beep(){
            var aud = document.createElement("iframe");
            aud.setAttribute('src', "App_Themes/Default/Images/Ding.mp3");
            aud.setAttribute('width', '1px');
            aud.setAttribute('height', '1px');
            aud.setAttribute('scrolling', 'no');
            aud.style.border = "0px";
            document.body.appendChild(aud);
        }

Open in new window


Both of which work on desktop browsers, but not mobile. So I guess my question is, is it possible to get around the user interaction limitation mobile browsers set? Is there another way I should be doing this?

Our iOS devices are loaded with Maps.me so that we can use offline maps. We have a spreadsheet with a series of hyperlinks that will launch Maps.me and display the desired location. The Apple version of the hyperlink looks something like "ge0://_X-mwmlX3T/52015_Wood_Pol". If I SMS this link to an iOS device it will work as it should but when we try to launch it from a hyperlink in an Excel spreadsheet we get a message that says "The link address may be invalid, or you may not have permission to open it". I know it's not invalid because it works when copied and SMS'd so it's an issue of permission. Is there any way to get an iOS device to allow a hyperlink launch an app like this, or is that just too much for Apple products to cope with?

I've installed iCloud on my PC and can see and access my files successfully. But... (always a 'but'), there appears to be a delay on that file being updated? If I edit a file on my iPad and then open that same file on my PC, via iCloud, the edit isn't there.  If I then edit that same file on my PC and open it in the iPad that edit isn't there either. After a few minutes a couple of 'Conflict copies' of the file appear with the edits.

So my guess / question is: I'm not in fact editing the file directly but it's creating a copy of sorts, then after I save that copy it has to work it's way through the core of Apple and replace/update the file, there is a time delay to this and that throws up the conflict copies as it lands back in the iCloud folder (Trust Apple to make it difficult)! The answer to my next question is that the delay between copying / overwriting that file can depend on how busy the servers are .... might be a few seconds, might be a few minutes ?!...

I'm I right ?

Thank you.

I'm using an Ipad to edit documents (99% of the time word files) via the 'Officesuite:Free office' app and saving it to the icloud.  I also edit those files on my PC by downloading them via a browser, editing them in MS Word and then uploading them again.

I'm having issues where it's very easy to end up with duplicate files either on the pc or the icloud.  Ideally I just want to edit the file directly in the icloud from my pc so removing the download / upload entirely and all the duplicates,  but I can't see an easy way to do this. Any ideas ?

Thank you.
