WiFi Password Stored, But For How Long?


After the mishap today with a crashing PDF-Notes 2.0.0 app on all 30 iPads, I immediately thought that I should do some app maintenance over the next few days.  You know, clean up the springboard, delete unwanted apps, add a few new ones, create folders, and so forth.  All I would need to do is setup one iPad with the newly organized springboard, create a backup of that iPad, and then restore the ...

PDF-Notes 2.0.0 for iPad: The Best Annotation App… Or is it?


Now that my WiFi issues have been solved using a secure SSID with a password permanently stored in all iPads from our class set, it was on to experimenting with pdf-notes.  After stumbling upon this free app in the iTunes App Store, I watched an advertisement on YouTube which was more than impressive.  A nice bookshelf setup with the ability to create categories for each of your classes throughout...

iPad 2s, Bretford Sync Cart, & MacBook have arrived!


About a week ago, our Apple order finally arrived!  Back in June, the original goal was to have all equipment delivered before the end of August in order to have enough time to dedicate to the setup process.  Although I am a pretty Tech-Savy individual and own other iOS devices, I knew that the setup, organization, and regular maintenance of this equipment would not be easy. We are a week in and ...
