Sprint iPad Mini - Thoughts, App suggestions, etc.

Recommended Posts

So my birthday passed two weeks ago, and the girlfriend surprised me with a Sprint iPad mini. So far I'm loving it for Kindle reading, Netflix, etc. but I want to know what more I can do with it?

 

Any app suggestions? Anything cool it does?

I'm going to get one (WiFi). I'm in school so I'm using it for textbooks.<br /><br />Edit: there are some awesome board games in the app store like yahtzee and risk.<br /><br />Sent from my SPH-L710 using Tapatalk 2<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />Tapatalk is getting a 2 star rating now.<br /><br />I've had enough of this crap!<br /><br />Edit: if you can't tell, tapatalk is getting ridiculous here.<br /><br />Garble garble<br /><br /><br /> garble<br />

Ok cool, thanks!

 

I use it more and more for emails and Netflix when I'm home. Just waiting for a better slim case with keyboard. The Zagg is too bulky to use one-handed.

It turns out I couldn't find a single wifi iPad mini in my area (Apple Store, Target, Walmart, Best Buy or anywhere else) but found a good local deal on craigslist for the iPad 3 so I'm getting that instead.

 

Same apps though. ;)

I went kind of crazy with apps on my new iPad. It's not a mini but I am sure most should work fine on the mini.

  • Paper by FiftyThree - Sketching/Drawing
  • Notability - Notetaking; Document Editing; will sync voice notes to text/handwritten notes
  • Penultimate - Notetaking, Writing
  • Dropbox
  • NFL Mobile
  • NBA Gametime
  • WatchESPN
  • Google Earth
  • Skype
  • iBooks
  • Anthill - Strategy Game
  • Amazon Instant Video

That's just a portion of the apps I got. Some are free, some are paid. I didn't list all the games because that is really subject to your interests.

Hill Climb Racing

Into the dead

NPR

Flip board

 

Just to name a few I use everyday

Goodreader for managing documents, reading files, opening ZIPs, etc

 

AirVideo for live streaming video from your PC.

 

Angry Birds Space & Star Wars, Where's my Water, Where's my Perry, ERA and JellyDefense if you like TD games. Bastion is a kickass action game, Drawn: the Painted Tower and its two sequels are Myst-like puzzle adventure games, well worth the price.

 

Intellicast for weather.

 

Downcasts beats the built-in podcast app by a mile.

 

Notability was already mentioned.

 

 

And of course my app, Storm Sim :)

Sweet, thanks guy!

 

So which "guy" are you thanking cuz there were a lot of "guys" who contributed to this thread? If you're gonna single out just one "guy" out of the many "guys" the least you could do is identify said "guy". B)

 

I had to cut this rant short because the forum will only allow 10 quotation marks per post.

Box is far superior to Dropbox, IMHO. Most apps will upload to both but Box gives all iOS devices free 10gb of space. Another app well worth the price is UPad. It allows you to type or write on PDF's as well as create blank pages to draw, etc...

Box for LG Android users gave me 50GB of free storage, and when Box was giving iDevice users 50GB, I signed up for that too, so I have 100GB of free online storage space just thru Box. :)

So what is the use of having 100gb when you use zero?

Haven't had time to start storing stuff on them. Not sure what I want to put on there. When I'm at home in Pahrump I wouldn't have access to stuff stored on there.

No, I need an extra 50GB to have Pandora's Box!

To anyone that might know... Will Sprint iPad Mini Retina have SPARK usable? Or will it be only LTE 800 and 1900?

So, I hate to revive an old thread, but I just jumped on an iPad mini deal on Easy Pay, and now I need more app suggestions. And no, Office for iPad is out of the question because I'm not paying for Office 365. Microsoft sucks for that requirement.

What type of apps are you looking for?

    • That stinks. My area LTE is still 10x10 I wonder if it's because I'm in a Columbia capital area? Mpls Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk
    • Yes I did restart app. Also rebooted Moto and turned off other signal apps. No accent. Restarting app also was needed on LG V20 if you want to turn accent off (turn off setting then restart app needed). Thanks
    • Hey thanks!! 🍻 I already saw your report and have been looking into it, I'm trying to get another release pushed out this morning to give you guys another try at everything for me.. the Red Pocket SIM caught my eye as the only oddity, although SCP identifies it as T-Mobile so it should show a magenta line. Did you try restarting the app after enabling the option, just in case? (You shouldn't have to do this but who knows). I'm adding some extra logging that should show me some more details why this might be missing. Stay tuned.
    • Accent seems to work fine on my Sprint LG V20 using Android 8. I have not tested it yet switch to T-Mobile or AT&T or Verizon etc.  No accent on my Moto G7 Power Unlocked and rooted with Android 9 on T-Mobile network using Red Pocket sim. I assume accent is triggered by PLMN, but maybe by sim carrier? Diags and beer money sent for both so you can compare if needed.
    • Here is the stock email WebSalesTeam@symm.onmicrosoft.com  Or this person, I get many emails from them all the time.

The tariff is just what they already paid and they are passing it on to you. They should be able to void your order and process a new one. They have done it for me for this exact same reason. Another thing is they try to hide the cheapo USPS 3 dollar shipping at the bottom of the shipping page, keep an eye out for that and save some $$$
