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?

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?

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.

When trying to click "shortcuts" "recent", I am redirected to my shortcuts editing page after clicking the shortcuts tab, but before having a chance to click the recent link. Haven't tried it on my PC, it may just be an iPad problem.

For some reason I can't type any comments on instructables from my ipad. Whenever I type nothing happens and it is really annoying! This is the only website were I have that problem and it has only been happening for a week. Is this my fault or is it just a bug in the website?

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.

The iPad has came out quite recently, and ever since I have been thinking about getting one. I'd heard a lot of good things about it, but then again, I have also heard some bad things, so I'm not so sure what to do now. I would like some of your opinions on if you think if it is worth buying, or maybe if I should wait for a newer version to come out. Please, actually give me some reasonable answers, not something like "Oh, you shouldn't buy one because it's dumb..." or the sort. If you own an iPad, could you tell me if it has been useful for you and in what way?

Drop down menus in the navigation section of your page don't seem to function on iPad running OS 6. For instance, if you click on "explore" and then click on the drop down menu "everything," you can't access any of the items in this menu; you can only pull up the picture below the menu. I've tried this with the Safari and Chrome browsers. This has been happening for at least the last two months and is keeping me from using your site!

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!

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.

There are more and more gaming apps coming to the iPad all the time, but if you have a retro gaming itch that you want to scratch you can play SNES games on it with a Wiimote.

I guess this is more of a request than a question, sooooo.. Can someone please make an app for IPads that allows you to post a new 'ible and upload pictures??? I'm thinking something similar to the facebook app that allows you to "choose a picture from your library" or 'take a new picture"? writing an app is well beyond the scope of what I can do/have time to learn how. Please instructaballers, show some app ingenuity!

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

I got this idea while I was playing a racing game on my iPad. I would like to build an iPad holder which be tilted with a shaft or with something like a joystick. Thereby utilising the accelerometer capacity of racing and simulation games in a much more flashy way. I don't know how to proceed with the materials and how am I going to achieve the movements when it gets connected the controller. I really need some help here. Please help me! Thanks in advance! PS: I will soon start to work a model of the project on 3Ds Max. I will post pictures if you guys need more detailed look of it.

We are in search for ideas and/or off-the-shelf solutions for an iPad stand issue in response to the following request: My daughter Talie uses an iPad daily both at school for educational purpases and at home to keep her occupied during g-tube feedings. Right now her iPad sits on the tray of her wheelchair (Ottobock Kimba) and she bends over it as she prefers to use her lip and nose causing her neck and back pain. We would love to have a stand that would hold her iPad at face level so she can use it without bending over. Or alternatively, an adapted stylus that can be attached to her nose or chin. All of the commercial stands we have seen would not be stable enough for her use. She has very high tone and her movements are rapid and jerky. She needs something that would allow her to tap the screen without the iPad moving or falling over. Her OT at school fabricated a mouth stick for her but she gets tired of holding it in her mouth and when she puts it down to talk she cannot retrieve it. Headpieces with stylus' are much too big for her little head. Happy to hear your ideas!

I recently received an iPad for my birthday. I have been loading some of my favorite books into iTunes to read in the iBooks reader app. Some of these books I have scanned and run through OCR (optical character recognition) before generating the EPUB format that iBook uses. As much as I try to catch errors before I export to iTunes, I still find errors in the text of these books while I am reading them. So far, I have highlighted the passages that need to be edited and then gone back to the master file on my PC to correct them. Then I re-sync them to my iPad. Quite a laborious process and one that requires me to go back to my PC to fix things long after I have found them. Is there a text editor app for the iPad that I can use to edit either the text in the EPUB container (a collection of XHTML files) or to edit a plain text file to correct spelling, punctuation, etc? I would like to be able to edit the mistakes and then sync them back to my PC when I reconnect. While I would like to find a free app that would work, I would pay for an app that let me do this. Or, is there a way to sync annotations that you make in iBooks when you reconnect? I could develop a desktop application that could recognize annotation tags and edit the EPUB file from the tags. It seems like the iPad would be an ideal platform for proof-reading, but I haven't found the right software yet.

Hello, i am experiencing problems with iPad safari browsing in the site. When I click on the "You" button on the top right corner, whatever I want to click after that is impossible. The bubble disappears and whatever was under my finger is selected and clicked. This way I cannot see messages, shortcuts or log out. These can be found if I add "/you" in the browser bar, but it is more complicated. Has anyone found a fix for that?

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.

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?
