Games, productivity.

Games: I would recommend 8 ball pool, deer hunter, or bridge construction (if you enjoy the engineering-type form of entertainment). And for productivity, the only business-oriented apps that I use are "piikki" which organizes all of my business receipts with photos and generates beautiful expense reports. Also, "check" has really helped organize all the bills in my life. Having every due date, all account info, and even the ability to pay (with a small convenience charge) right from the app is incredible.

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.

Not sure if it still exists but there used to be a Microsoft office equivalent via jail breaking (from a legal repo too).

Apple's productivity suite is free now. Pages, Keynote, Numbers. Fully functional, no need to pay like with Office. 

 

The normal Sprint iPad Mini is B25, while the retina is B25+B26, right?

Yep, the Mini retina is 25/26

Already own Plants vs Zombies and I look forward to the game play. :) As for Angry Birds, I lost interest early, but might give it a try on the bigger screen.

Yeah, I'm not going to jailbreak my iPad mini. And I'm going to pass on the Microsux Office for now. I have a lot of good uses for Numbers on there and plan on using it for a number of spreadsheets.

The GBA4IOS is also a lot of fun to play on the iPad.  Goto www.gba4iosapp.com from Safari on your iPad to get it.  You have to set your clock back to before 2/18/14 first, but once you launch it, you can fix the time without issue.

Since this thread isn't dedicated to apps only, what do you think of this case?

Well, my iPad mini has run it's course. I'm calling to cancel it today, and will most likely keep it as a wifi device, but I don't see me using it much anymore.

    • Thanks! I build non carrier compliant but still compliant machines so if you need one before T-Mo builds one I am here.     
    • I just found this out myself on the s10e. Download the Samsung Band Selection app and you can set it back to wifi if you want. Dumb that there is no menu option for it natively.
    • So I got the Pebble from Sprint, I'm waiting for the damn VoLTE to enable. I harassed Sprint and they said it is a limitation of the device (which they still can't explain why) and waiting is the only option. They also told me every time there is a power failure the wait for it to enable begins again.... really? Does anyone know how it works and why there is a 2-3 week lead up to VoLTE enabling? So now my voice calls drop down to 1x and I can't receive MMS when I'm on a call. No problem I thought, I'll just switch to wifi calling for now and I can still get MMS over LTE while I'm on a call. Not so fast. For some damn reason wifi calling doesn't work on my SM-G970U1 (unlocked s10e) when I'm connected to the Pebble. If I turn airplane mode on, wifi calling pops right up. If I unplug the pebble, wifi calling pops right up. That leads one to believe the Pebble is preventing wifi calling from activating for some reason. However, my dad's LG V20 has absolutely no issue using wifi calling while connected to the Pebble and can therefore receive MMS just fine. Do you have any idea what in the hell could be causing this? Is this some whack setting on the s10e which I'm not seeing? Phone has the latest updates, 911 is updated, I did PRL and profile updates. I'm stumped....   UPDATE: So I found the answer in the wifi-calling menus and googling that took me to a post here. Apparently starting in April of 2020, Sprint decided it knows what is best for you so it sets calling over the network to preferred and only if signal is too weak will it default to wifi calling. There is no visible option in the phone to change that setting. I had to download Samsung Band app to set it to prefer wifi and bam.... now it is enabled. I'd still like to know WTF the Pebble is doing with VoLTE though.
    • LTE or LTE B? would be good.  I personally prefer to know that it is unknown.  Thanks!
