    Default Anyone posting with an iPad ?

    I'm posting on my shiney new iPad2

    I have a question for any more experienced users,

    How the hell can you scroll up and down in the text input window ??

    You know if you have written something long like a review and want to re read it by scrolling back to the top ?

    Also can you right click, so to speak ? To view properties on a pic or is there just the long press option ?

    Hold your finger on the text till the blue cursor appears then move your finger up and down the screen till it's where you want it to be.

    Hope that helps mate, enjoy your new toy.

    What about the spell check !!!

    I thought these things were supposed to be clever... Android phone gives you an option for it to learn new words as you type.

    Can you add words to it's dictionary ?

    I'm assuming the ipad is the same as the Iphone where java isn't supported hence why the scroll bar on the side of a text box doesn't appear, this is only a problem when you are replying to a post or creating a long post and wish to go back to edit, easiest way around this I have found is to hit the little arrow in the diagram which increase the box size, eliminating the scroll bar.

    Not quite sure yet I'll have to live with a while before I would recommend.

    For web browsing the Motorola Xoom may be a better machine.

    But I went with iPad because I want to rent movies on it, Android have yet to get this end of the Market sorted.

    But I'll put up a review in a few weeks if it's any help.

    Why not just install VLC media player App on your Ipad, then you can just transfer films from your PC and play them without the need to convert, I know HD .mkv files struggle on the iphone but standard avi play perfectly.
