Hello! A friend of mine recently did a brilliant painting on an iPad case which looked awesome. Then another dude got inspired and he airbrushed a piece on his. I kinda want something artsy like that, but can’t seem to find good places to get them online. Who knows where to find your not-so-standard cases online?

I’m looking for an iPad case with keyboard and specifically one that can take intensive typing. I gotta work on the road quite a lot and am not carrying my laptop everywhere. Came across the Typad, which is kinda what I’m looking for, only that it’s over 120 dollars. Another case is the ZAGGmate which is cheaper, but I haven’t found any satisfying reviews. Anyone has recommendations or experience with these keyboard cases?

Is it possible that the iPad's "ambient light sensor" is really a camera and the camera will be activated in a software update (like the iPod touch (2nd gen) with the Bluetooth introduction in OS 3.0)?

The new web page format includes many dropdown boxes that do not work with the ipad. The ipad does not support a "hover" event so when you to select a dropdown item it doesn't work. Did not have this problem with previous website. I know that there is a limited app for the iphone but it does not appear appropriate for the ipad. This makes it virtually impossible to navigate instructables on the ipad.

I got all excited when I saw there was an iPhone app but unfortunately it isn't compatible with iPads (not even on 2x). Any chance a boffin could get an iPad version going?

On the home page there is an ad for the Robot contest, in the corner there is an Ipad displayed but in the prizes section of the contest page the tablet is not mentioned. Just wondering what is up with that. Secret judges prize?

Until last week I was able to pull/view the current challenge on the home page (using my iPad). Now it seems the only way I can view them is if I log onto my PC and click on "contests". Is there a way to view the current contests (that are still open) conveniently on my iPad? Thanks!

Can you describe the process how to build an iPad clone using video and images. Please describe the process to an audience without prior knowledge of Computer Science? And how much is the hardware and equipment required to build it?

Does anybody have a circuit that is able to turn solar power from a solar panel (preferably 1 watt) to make enough juice to recharge an iPad? The iPad requires 10 watts of power to charge. I wanted too use Adafruit's mintyboost but I don't think that has enough power to charge the iPad. Any suggestions?

I am using an IPad air with latest iOS updates and version 2.64.5 of the Instructables app For the past 6 months or so, whenever I go into the app and press "Explore All" the app simply exits back to my IPads homescreeen. All other app functionality appears ok. I have tried: - shutting and restarting the app - a hard reset - deleting and redownloading the app - as a last ditch effor, doing a factory reset and restoring from backup None of the above has worked and it's really destroyed my ability to use Instructables on the IPad and the desktop version is a little clunky to explore on a tablet. I have submitted feedback a couple of times through the app but that hasn't seemed to have done anything. I really hope asking here might help me resolve this! Thanks Darren

My wife's 1 year old plus iPad (3 or 4 I think?) suffered a minor accident (cat knocked it over) and the Lighting adapter broke inside the receptacle. Since it was impossible to retrieve the piece of connector inside the plug I decided to take the iPad apart following several online tutorials (I am usually pretty handy) While I was trying to open the iPad I broke the screen , so once I was done I ordered both the Lighting Connector receptacle and a new screen. After I received the new parts, I was able to reassemble the iPad without too many issues, once again following instructions in a step by step tutorial and a couple of videos. The finished job Looked great. However I soon discovered I had a few serious issues: 1) Some areas of the screen do not register touch at all. I poke and poke and no response. This is like a 1" strip on the long side of the screen. Everywhere else, such as the opposite side of the screen, it works fine or it is actually too sensitive. 2) Siri keeps coming on. Even with the ipad asleep sitting under the bed, siri will turn on and off by itself. Quite annoying during the night (I had to turn the iPad completely off). 3) The keyboard works terrible with the keys in the "dead zone" not responding and those in the "live zone" typing 3 or 4 characters per key "press" I really don't want to open the iPad again until I know what I did wrong and how to do it right next time. Could I have placed the new screen too close on one side and not enough on the other? What else could have caused this? In all the tutorials I have read before I attempted this repair I took note of all the possible shortcomings, but I did not read anything about a behavior like the one I am experiencing. I'd appreciate any help I can get. Thank you.

I am a teacher in a public school with a limited budget. Our community has bought 50 iPads for the students coming up next year, but did not budget anything for a cart. The administration has tasked me with solving the issue on the cheap and I seek your help. The requirements are: Preferably, it's mobile. It needs to be locked. This can be a simple padlock with a latch. My colleagues hope to have two carts of 25 each, but three carts of 20 each (with some empty slots, obviously) is okay. They have not told me if needs to power AND sync, or just power. At present the cart they have only powers them up. For IPad accessories, what's in the box is what I have. My school is looking to do this very cheaply--a simple box with a power strip inside is preferable than a big cash outlay, but I'd like to do better than that. I certainly don't want to spend the year dealing with small issues that come up with middle school students being unable to do this or that. I have thought of using a two drawer filing cabinet (top for iPads, bottom for the guts) and a 24 USB port hub with AC adapter. But I could make a box out of wood, too. I know it needs ventilation, but ideas on this end are appreciated. I tinker and build but my tech knowledge hits a wall, which is why I'm looking to crowdsource this to success. Thanks in advance.

Apple just revealed the new Apple iPad Tablet that will probably make it one of the first failures by Apple's latest line of products. Apple revealed this new Tablet PC as a challenger to netbooks. However, it's already been labeled a "less powerful, but more expensive netbook." Here are 14 iPad problems that made this Apple iPad an iDisappointment. 1. No Multitasking The Apple iPad is just like the iPhone, in that there is no multitasking. You can't work on a document and talk on AIM or Gtalk. In other words, the iPad just a giant iPod Touch (the iPod Touch being better) and cannot match netbooks. 2. It Has an Awkward Design The design is a bit awkward because you have to hold it in one hand and balance it while your other hand uses the functionality or more likely you will need to put it on your knees to use it properly. It's like holding a monitor, I'm sure nothing will happen to it. Some people complain about the Bezel being too large, but perhaps this was necessary so that you don't constantly give commands while moving around. 3. No Adobe Flash Were you considering watching Hulu on this? How about youtube (well we'll have to wait for an app for that)? Thinking of playing flash games while waiting on the bus? Oh well. 4. No USB, Need Adapters Again with the iPod design, you need to plug in the special Apple adapter. If you lose it, you'll have to buy another. If you want to plug in multiple devices you need USB to iPad adapters! Since it's not even using Mac OS, most USB devices would probably not work anyway. 5. AT&T; Once Again Are you thinking of purchasing the 3G version? You'll need to get it with AT&T; and think of how overloaded their service will be now. There is no Verizon, T-Mobile, or Sprint service available for this product, some of which has better coverage. You can't use T-Mobile's 3G at all because of their MicroSIM made specifically for AT&T.; 6. Memory Business Model Apple will charge you extra for higher memory. It's a business model they use for all their products to increase profits. That's why they don't want other storage devices being inserted to improve memory. You're also stuck with a limit of 64GB, so don't think about putting in all your music, movies, or games. 7. Touch Keyboard Many people were complaining about the touchscreen keyboard. Which would be fine if it worked perfectly and you didn't have to sit it exactly on your lap and make sure it's flat. You can however, attach an Apple keyboard, just another way for Apple to make money. 8. App Store Again Just like the iPod Touch you have to download everything from an App store. Meaning if you don't like Safari, you're stuck with it. Some apps may be banned once again. 9. No Cameras Yeah no web cams on the front, and no cameras for photos or videos from the back either. 10. No Removable Battery You can't just take an extra battery with you on a long trip because the battery works the same way as an iPod (though my bet is, it doesn't last as long). 11. No HDMI/DVI Output You can't plug this thing into your TV to display your HD movies. You'd need AppleTV for that. 12. No Widescreen 16:9 ain't happening, you're stuck with a 4:3 screen. 13. No GPS There's no GPS, so --unlike the T-Mobile MyTouch or the Verizon Droid which both run on Android, can multitask and have GPS so that you can use the Beta Google Maps Navigation system for turn-by-turn directions-- you're stuck with locating yourself via WiFi hotspots. 14. It's Large, Slow, and Clunky Not only will you have to buy accessories to protect your device, it's very large making it easy to drop and probably won't live a healthy life in a backpack filled with notebooks and other possibly sharp objects. There may be a number of accessories sold by Apple to cover some of these problems. The iPad max speed is 1GHz (A4 processor) and will probably be just as slow surfing the web as most other smartphones and it won't match up to netbooks. There is no Mac OS X or anything either, it's definitely the iPhone OS except without the Phone capability and of course I'm sure they will ban Google Voice and Skype. The iPad is about the size of a Kindle, so it is nice for reading e-books I suppose, but then I'm not sure why I wouldn't just buy a Kindle. As with all companies that initially have much success, they get a little overconfident and launch a product just to create more hype and increase their stock prices.

Announced on January 27, 2010, it is similar in functionality to the iPhone and iPod touch, running the same operating system (iPhone OS) and almost all of the same applications...

Hey All, In my car i have an after market HU with a usb port that my iPad 3/ iPhone 4s / iPods can connect to. However when my iPad is connected to it is unable to charge. The charging indicator in the iPad has the little lightning bolt going through it, indicating that it is indeed charging however the iPad looses about 7% of its battery every hour. Does anyone have any suggestions on how i can get my iPad to charge through my HU? Cheers

Hey! The iPad came out last Friday and I've already started to hear rumors about the iPad 3 coming out in later 2011. Now, this doesn't seem like Apple because they usually have a one year refresh of their products (as in the iPod touch and iPhone). What would you guys like to see on the iPad 3? Thanks! DP

I have seen videos on youtube of people using a ipad with a wired keyboard but they all use a adapter block. Could I use a female to female connector instead of the adapter block and the orignal usb cable would it stiill work. If anyone has a Ipad and a female to female connector can you try it for me? Thanks.

Hello every one, I have got a new ipad few days ago. Now I want to download some youtube videos to my ipad for watching, but I can not do it well. Firstly I don’t know how to download, secondly I have no idea of converting the Youtube video to ipad video supported video formats, so it is really a headache. If you are good at playing with ipad, would you like to provide me a link to operate it? Thanks.

I'm using your website on Safari on an iPad mini. (iOS8, current version of Safari) I edited a project and hit Preview to see my changes. A modal opened over the page. However, the modal was not scrollable and had no option for closing it. I had to touch the background page (very small target along the edges of the screen) to get out of the modal.
