Apple - The new iPad - It
iOS 5.1 Software Update
Still don't see the point of an iPad. My sister's got an iPad 2 and it's an awful thing to use.
Yeah i'm with you, my sisters got one too, just a big iPhone in my opinion.
We have a couple :icon_blushing: but all they are for is trying to sell advertising space good for putting the PDF Version of a magazine on and look flashy when we go to potential clients/customers etc but that's about it.
I'm with you guys. I can't say I see the point of them. I guess they're in between a smaller, more carry-able laptop, and a bigger more useful iPhone? Who knows. But you have to admit they're gorgeous looking things. I'd buy it for that reason alone.
I think there are pretty neat. Sure its just like a big ipod but its the size of it that gives app developers more screen real estate and now it actually has a decent resolution I think they are quite a tempting purchase, for me at least. Even for things like the Rightmove app - its a totally different experience to sitting down at a desk on the website and a million times better than sifting through a newspaper. I don't know what I would prefer though - a Macbook air having a full OS on it and still being very portable (but more expensive) or an new iPad. Or perhaps just save my money
Most of the sites I've viewed on an iPad clearly weren't designed with tablets in mind. I spent far too long zooming in and scrolling across to read stuff which quickly became annoying. This will probably change in time though.
I've heard from some people that they're useful for showing portfolios to clients, but I'd prefer to show them actual printed samples.
There is a really addictive "Where's Wally" app for it though
I'm not sure that is true to be honest. I reckon you'll find a lot of tablets out there are either, already gathering dust somewhere or are used purely for entertainment. I.e. download some apps, films, music etc for a long journey and that's about it. I mean I don't know anyone who actually understands mobile data charges and a lot of people have a healthy distrust of public wi-fi hotspots so I see tablets as an entertainment device rather than something that will eventually overtake PCs and laptops. Of course audience is important in web design but, according to our analytics, we had 3 visits from iPad users in February (that's about 0.5%) and that isn't really enough to worry about at this stage.
I really like your branding by the way ahcstudio.
Yes it does.
Apparently not. I could be wrong, i dont have one to fiddle around with. It wasn't working on a client's ipad, apparently you can turn it on through safari but even after enabling it it didn't seem to want to work. Since it wasn't mine i couldn't smash it up so i just handed it back with a smile and wished him luck :icon_biggrin:
My stats are similar, but everything i see and hear seems to indicate over the next few years tablets will overtake. I can't find any hard facts on sales though. I hope they don't.
Thanks for the compliment about branding, i wanted something a little different.. i also have a huge crescent moon filled with LED lights i take out and switch on at night:icon_biggrin:
I only had a few minutes with the ipad then gave up.. is there a quick fix to get it to work?
Sure does I'm sure it's only flash that they don't support.
Yep flash is not supported on iOS products by means of the flash player browser plugin. You can still export Flash/Actionscript applications and games into a native iOS application to be accessed with the app store since Flash has the iOS packager.
