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?

    • LTE or LTE B? would be good.  I personally prefer to know that it is unknown.  Thanks!
    • Shoot me a diagnostic if you can catch this again! Invalid signal levels should automatically be filtered out.   Yeah, B66 and B71 are natively reported wrong on many devices due to an Android bug. SignalCheck tries to catch these and report them as B66/B71, but it's tricky because in some instances the incorrect band is actually a possible valid result. I'm not aware of B7 showing up, if someone catches that please send a diagnostic.. it is likely B66/B71 being reported incorrectly but not getting caught.
    • The report you sent showed the app was displaying B2 and the icon at the time was also B2--I checked the graphics to make sure the B2 icon didn't actually say B71, LOL.. if it happens again send another report! I don't recall any recent reports of the notification icon falling out of sync with the app itself.
    • Your G4 is running Android 6.0, which does not report EARFCN info. SignalCheck is displaying it as band 41 because PLMN ID 311490 is leading it to believe that it is a former Clear site, so it defaults to B41 unless another band is identified another way. With 311490 now being used during the merger transition, it's throwing things off. Unfortunately the app isn't going to be able to know if it's a Clear site or a merger-related thing.. perhaps I'll just remove the default band for now, since newer devices will be able to figure it out anyway. These multiple PLMNs are going to be even more problematic than they were before, because they aren't being used the same way in every market.
    • Because just like any other network, they can't guarantee coverage everywhere.
