Is it acceptable for Ipad 4's to have some light bleed on one side? (my aunt's got has x3 half an inch streaks from one side if a completely black background/image).

Is there also a way for the device to just remember our password? It keeps asking for it when we download something from the app store xD

Is it possible to keep playing youtube videos while doing something else? I can't seem to do it.. the video would stop.

Do you guys use screen protectors?

1. No it's not acceptable. I'd return it, but if it doesn't bother you then you could leave it and return it later if you wanted.

2. You should be able to download free apps and update existing apps without a password. When you purchase an app you've got to enter your password, and you've got a fifteen minute window to make more purchases without entering it again, but after that you have to type it again.

3. Where are you playing the YouTube videos? If it's Google's official YouTube app, then the answer is no as they don't allow it. If it's the mobile YouTube website via Safari (or another browser that supports the functionality) then you can start playing the song, exit the app (song stops) and then double tap to bring up the multitasking bar, and then swipe left to right to get to the music controls, and then finally hit play. Music should start playing. Can't loop it though.

For YouTube videos I'd recommend the app TubeBox. It's fantastic. You can log into your account, browser your playlists, cache videos in the app to watch offline, save them to the device (Camera Roll) and pop them on your computer or open them in another app, etc.

It supports background audio as well. So play the song, exit the app (song stops), and then hit play in the multitasking bar. It will loop if you've set it to do that. Will do this automatically if you sleep the device, and automatically in both instances (exiting app or sleeping device) for the iPhone.

4. I don't. Though, I'm not prone to scratching the screen either.

It is definitely sharper. According to Anandtech's review, the colour accuracy is the same. Brightness and contrast do seem to vary a little model from model.

I don't play games (other than crosswords, etc) but I find the Mini to be much better for E-reading just based on it's weight compared to my clunky 3G IPad 2. The Mini actually weighs less than the Nexus 7...
It is definitely superior to the iPad 2 for e-reading. It's almost weightless, I sometimes forget I'm holding it. The iPad 3/4 does have a big edge over it with the Retina display though.

Also for video it's fantastic. I guess 1080P videos would look better on a retina display but I don't have anything over 720P (not to mention right now all the video players for the IPad are having their Dolby AC3 support pulled, making it a real issue to get a new player that supports a decent video file).
Yeah, I find the thinner side bezels make it seem like it's widescreen. What's this about Dolby AC3 support being pulled? Have you had a look at AVPlayer HD?

I'm going to upgrade next year. Either to an iPad mini 2 with Retina display, or an iPad 5 with a redesign. Not sure I'd upgrade to the iPad mini 2 if it isn't Retina next year though.

I'm using AVPlayerHD which is no longer available through the App store. All of the video playback apps currently out have had newer versions released in the last couple of weeks without AC3 playback support. This is a real issue with video that is encoded with AC3 audio (most DVD and Bluray rips for example). It's Playing has been hobbled as well. Here are the developers comments:

Restricted Audio
From version 3.8 onwards, we have been forced to disable It's playing access to AC3, EAC3 and MLP encoded audio. AC3 is a widely used format present, for example, in DVDs. The reason for this restriction is that It's playing's usage of the open-sourced, free, FFmpeg decoding library has been seen as an infringement of AC3 patents by the holders. Many other open-source and closed-source applications are using this technology. We are striving to overcome this issue as soon as we can and will post information here as it becomes available.



Have a look at this forum article regarding players. Mennesyss2 goes into great detail the issues that have transpired with the Dolby lawsuit against Apple.

http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1448031&page=4

Apparently there are other apps that have had support pulled as well.

QQPlayer
MoliPlayer
Luberplayer
YPlayer
Goodplayer
YaPlayer
NPlayer
iMEdia Player


HDPlayer Pro has been pulled from the apps store for the same reasons.

If you have an older version of any of these apps, do not update it for any reason!

Congrats on your purchase. I bought the wife the same model only in black last night from Walmart. She seems to be very happy with it.

I struggled for over a year deciding which way to go....android...W8....or IOS. I picked iPad because of a mature OS and also because I follow Robilar's reviews on the different tablets he has owned.

The wife doesn't need/want extra storage. Says she doesn't want movies/music...just surf the web.

If you use the same Apple ID (email and password) with the iPod then you can install any apps that you purchased on your iPad 3. If you're asking if you can transfer apps between accounts, I don't think you can, at least I haven't tried or know of a way to do that. I have an iPad 3 and iPad Mini. I use the same Apple ID with both tablets and have access to all the apps on my iPad Mini that I originally purchased on my iPad 3. You say you don't have any Credit Card linked to the account but even if you did have some payment method on that account, every time your kid would try to buy an app that isn't free it would ask for the Apple ID password. So your kid wouldn't be able to buy apps willy nilly unless you told them the password. Steelbom explained this very well in his answer to a question from tubers:

Question for iPad4 owners....

New iPad 4 for the wife. I was helping her install some of the free games and had trouble getting the onscreen install button to turn green. Then when it would turn green I had trouble getting it to advance itself thru the installation process.

We tried holding a finger on it for a few second...tapping the button with some force but it seemed to take many tries and a lot of effort to get thru the process. Is there a technique for this that I am missing ? Or is it possible that the device is buggy in that respect? The firmware is up to date. I need a little guidance on this issue while it is still returnable. Thanks for any and all replies.
