10 Apps, TV on Your iPad

By on Jul 3, 2011 in iPad |

The abilities of the iPad have grown leaps and bounds since its introduction only a couple years ago. As applications (aka, “apps”) are fine-tuned, customers have more variety in options. What does the iPad offer for TV watchers who are on the go? Comcast, HBOGo (Free + Subscription). Cable services, such as those listed, allow users full access to their cable providers content. What is the catch? Many times the user must be connected to the service provider’s own internet connection in order to access the content (that means, you can only use the Comcast app on Comcast internet connection). Limiting, but also means you can take your cable viewing to the back porch if you’d like! NetFlix (Free + Subscription). Georestricted. It helps to have stable bandwidth; otherwise, this streaming service is going to be choppy. You won’t be able to watch this without WiFi. At the moment, Netflix content is a bit but has proven to update as time progresses. HULUplus (Free + Subscription). The free version of Hulu does not offer much, so you will want the premium version. Again, this service is georestricted and you will need an American credit card for accessibility. Netflix and HuluPLUS prices are comparable and offer streaming access to more television content than if you viewed them online. Downside? Watch out for those ads! EyeTV ($4.99). Live TV, recordings, and full channel guide! This streams channels from your Mac that is running EyeTV over your Wi-Fi connection. The downside to this is the buffering stages per channel you land on, but the benefit is that this app allows you to view live television on your iPad! If you want more than what is live, choose from shows you have recorded! SlingPlayer ($29.99). iPhone/iPad app, and requires a SlingBox to be used. The app allows you to play/pause/record shows playing on your SlingBox. All the options of watching live television, as well as DVR, all on your iPad (over WiFi connection). This app doubles as a remote for your home television, along with the iPhone app. NBC, ABC, Discovery Channel / Etc (Free, Ad supported). Many stations, such as those listed above, feature FREE iPad apps that allow viewers to watch many of the more current shows! As a brief disclaimer, many of these services are georestricted (that is to say, only permitted in certain parts of the world). If that is the case, use a special VPN service like Overplay to disable such restrictions. Ipadcovershop.co.uk brings you the latest news in the tablet market.

iPad 2 Looks To Improve On The Original

By on Mar 3, 2011 in iPad | 3 comments

Apple is known to like to stay ahead of the competition, and to put out products that keep those in the same field on their toes and always thinking. They’re the type of company that leaves both customers and competitors guessing at what they’re going to unveil next. It is commonly known that when Apple unleash a product for the media to see, that the product is ready for release. Following the success of the iPad, many competitors brought out their own tablet PC devices to challenge Apple, with varying degrees of success. Many customers are now loyal to Apple, and there is a lot of faith in the products released by Apple. According to analysts, then next generation iPad 2 will keep Apple’s success going, and keep them ahead of their competitors. This new iPad 2 will be faster than the previous model, and looks set to be the first dual core tablet shipped en masse into stores worldwide. While the changes to the iPad aren’t revolutionary, Apple has upgraded the product to keep iPad range ahead of other competitors. Beyond being faster than the original model, it is also thinner (The iPad goes from 13.4mm in width to 8.8mm.) and lighter (Moving from 1.5 pounds to 1.3 pounds.). To some, this many not mean much, but these changes are more for comfort when using the device. The hardware upgrades that have taken place include a dual core processor, which will speed up the iPad, as well as the graphics being enhanced nine fold. The new dual core processor and improved graphics will mean that many applications and programs that use the iPad will be able to get bigger and better. This was a talking point of Apple’s CEO Steve Jobs, who called the next generation iPad a possible showcase for applications and developers to show off their products and skills. Jobs also emphasized the large number of applications that will be available for purchase. A number of add-on devices and peripherals will also be available for the iPad 2; however that focus hasn’t been on what these will be. The iPad 2 will come with multiple cameras and also new software. It is forecast that the new version will be able to retain around 80% of the market share in the PC tablet area, as the iPad is either matching competitor’s products with this release, or outperforming them completely. The price of the iPad is part of the reason for the popularity, as many companies are having trouble matching the prices and performance of Apple. The iPad 2 will keep the same pricing structure as the original version, with the entry-level model (16 gigs of storage capacity as well as Wi-Fi internet availability.) priced at $499.00, moving up to the top of the line model, priced at $829 (64 gig storage capacity and also cellular access.). One of the things that is getting every one abuzz is that the ipad 2 ram is only 512 MB. This has disappointed...

Pros and Cons of an iPad

By on Mar 3, 2011 in iPad | 3 comments

iPad is a great innovation and a giant leap forward in the area of reading tablets. For several years, various devices have been introduced as substitutes for books, magazines, newspapers and other reading materials but no device could quite fit the exact requirements. So, will the new iPad from Apple be the great new innovation that would replace books and print media? Nobody actually knows, but we can only hope that it would provide a good solution to our needs of portable electronic media. So, let’s see what iPad really is and what benefits it can provide us in our daily life and at what cost. There are definitely some good things about the iPad and there are certainly some bad things which you might have to deal with if you become a proud owner of Apple’s new product. New features that are very useful include: 1) The iPad has reasonable Wi-Fi connectivity support which makes it very useful for browsing the internet, reading newspapers, books, magazines and other written material. 2) The iPad has complete support for third party software, which provides great opportunities to developers for developing highly useful applications for the newest member of Apple’s product family. 3) The battery life is truly remarkable considering its thin design. Apple claims the iPad’s battery would last approximately 10 hours while watching movies or reading online material. In standby mode, the claims are a bit too unrealistic. Apple claims the battery would last approximately a month but that’s only what Apple claims. In reality, the tests have shown that the iPad can even go beyond the 10 hours claim by Apple. WOW! But with full load on the processor, it generally lasts for about 6 hours which is not bad at all. 4) Last but not the least, the Apple iPad comes with 16 GB of building memory which is enough to download content and create an almost infinite library of books. Enough with the praises? Now let’s consider the dark side to Apple’s iPad. 1) First of all, the biggest downside to the product is its zero support for multi-tasking. Even though the iPad is fitted with a 1GHZ A4 processor which is reasonably powerful, iPad has zero multi-tasking capabilities. Come on! People do multi-tasking these days without even knowing they are doing and no support for multi-tasking is a serious downside to iPad. 2) Even though iPad has support for HTML5 and Wi-Fi connectivity, there is no support for flash content which means no flash websites at all. Well that’s a bummer since most modern and attractive websites are flash based. 3) The iPad has very limited connectivity, there is no USB support, no Memory Card reader, no HDMI connectivity which means you are pretty much stuck to watching the content on the built-in screen of the iPad and the only means for getting content is through Wi-Fi. 4) Perhaps the biggest downside to the iPad is that the battery is sealed inside the gadget. This means that if the battery becomes weak or goes dead, well then that’s the end of your iPad experience. In conclusion I would say, the Apple iPad is a great gadget but it could have been made better by providing more connectivity, multitasking support and a better solution to the battery...
