This is by far the biggest waste of money. First, I wanted to use this for work, reading scientific articles and such. But transferring files over is a pain in the A$$! Seriously, you have to transfer pdf or Microsoft documents through Itunes using your laptop. In addition, you have to buy the goodreader app if you want to do anything with them. When you sink photos over, it loses all of the folder format. For instance I save my photos by year, month and then special events. You can't pick and choose which ones, you sync the whole folder? Then they sit there in some random spot without any organization to them whatsoever. I used it for about a month, finally said this is a waste and went back to my laptop, which is significantly faster. Finally, in this day and age not to have a USB port? The 'U' stands for Universal guys!
Strip the 'i' from ipad and this sells for no more than $250. Buy another tablet, like the Amazon Fire or the Microsoft version coming out. I guarantee it will function just as well but cost you 1/4 or 1/2 of the cost.
there's no adobe flash player so of course there's not a lot of websites I can really use anymore. on some sites, the iPad decides to minimize everything as small as it possibly can, freezes, crashes or just shuts itself completely off. also the camera is horrible. I have not yet been able to take a decent picture that's not blurry. there also seems to be some sort of delay when it takes a picture or when shooting a video. the videos don't look great either but everytime, while I'm making the video it seems to capture everything just as I intended but when I go back to watch the video, the first 10 seconds I thought was recording has disappeared. same as with the pictures. I take a photo of what I see but in the picture the subject is doing something different.
Even though they recently launched new iPhone4 few months ago, at least they would have used some of those key features in iPad2, its still missing retina display, at least 5MP camera and a flash at the back but they didn't. I'm pretty much sure they'll have it in their next iPad release.
And one more thing, camera at the back SUCKS!!!
I guess ipad2 is missing wow thing overall, almost same as its earlier version.
Terrible. Terrible. Terrible experience. Let me tell you. I had 3 of these. I bought one. Sound was constantly going in and out, with or without headphones. Took it to the Apple Store and they tell me that it happens often to some models and so they gave me a new one. That one was fine. But after 3 months I went to play a game and suddenly the screen went black. It was still on, but not showing anything. Tried everything to get it to work and it never came back on. Took it to the Apple Store again. They gave me a new one. This was the third one in less than 7 months. That is not okay. Also. I found it to be annoying as it constantly asked me for my login credentials. But outside of hardware issues, there weren't many problems, unless it was the apps I was using. Better to give to a tweenager without much need though.
I love the product but this one QUIT WORKING after one month of usage for no apparent reason. It quit shutting itself down. I contacted Apple support and was lucky it was still under warranty. I will never purchase any electronics like this again unless it does have an active warranty!
The Apple Ipad is the most over-rated, over-hyped product ever made. It just means that you end up spending even more time staring at a computer screen. Save your family, your friends and your friends from this.
O.k. Some problems with it not working smoothly. It started doing things by its self . It was a good price at the time.
I am not using it already. i cant recconect the internet. am too busy at work,,,,, maybe next time,,,
Worst Tablet. I buy it just for fun but I don like this basic iOS. the Size is OK.
Good condition. Just have trouble with sound on some apps I download.... Not sure how to fix that. I tried many ways to fix it but I guess it's time to ask a pro.
