Question by jeff g: Why is the typing input super slow in my Pages document on iPad? I imported a Word document to Pages on my iPad. It’s about 7 pages long. While editing the document on the iPad the input while typing is very slow. Is this just because the iPad isn’t powerful enough or can I fix this somehow? Thanks!
Answer by iDevice.mobiI edit and create larger document on ipad without a problem. You are running low on RAM and cache. Make sure you keep 10% of memory free. If you have 16GB make sure you have 1.6 GB space free. 3.2 GB Should be free if you have 32GB.
Go to settings, then SAFARI , clear all cache.
Press sleep and home button at once and let it completely shut off, redraft after 1 minute.
I am sure your ipad will faster after taking these steps.
iPad has enough power for what it’s used for.Keeping 10% memory free applies to even top of the line laptops.

While the humble touchscreen has become the standard interface for most smartphones, and capacitive displays make it a painless experience, the folk at start-up Qeexo think things could still be improved. It’s developed a technology called FingerSense that could add even more functionality. Essentially, by using a small acoustic sensor, it measures the vibrations as objects tap the screen, and can tell the difference between them. So, for example, a knuckle tap could be used for “right-click.” The tech is able to spot the difference between materials, too, so even when no finger is involved, it can register input, a great assistance to those with longer fingernails. The fun doesn’t stop there, though, with the demo video after the break showing a Galaxy SIII with a modified display, able to register stylus input, even without official support for it. More input options can never be a bad thing, and if nothing else, it could certainly make those GarageBand drumming sessions a little more interesting.
Using Microsoft’s Kinect to replace a mouse is often considered the Holy Grail of developers; there have been hacks and other tricks to get it working well before Kinect for Windows was even an option. A lead Technical Evangelist for Microsoft in France, David Catuhe, has just provided a less makeshift approach. The 1.2 update to his Kinect Toolbox side project introduces hooks to control the mouse outright, including ‘magnetic’ control to draw the mouse from its original position. To help keep the newly fashioned input (among other gestures) under control, Catuhe has also taken advantage of the SDK 1.5 release to check that the would-be hand-waver is sitting and staring at the Kinect before accepting any input. The open-source Windows software is available to grab for experimentation today, so if you think hands-free belongs as much on the PC desktop as in a car, you now have a ready-made way to make the dream a reality… at least, until you have to type.
Question by mike j: Is there an Android app where I can input my own data of local store prices to compare? Does anyone know of an Android shopping app that will allow me to input my own prices on items from local retailers? It seems like most apps scan the barcode and then search the internet for it. I would like an app that I can input my own data about products to compare local retailers. Thanks!

You can use as complex as a password as you like, but that won’t do you much good if someone’s able to watch or record you entering it. Researchers Andrea Bianchi, Ian Oakley and Dong-Soo Kwon have some ideas for overcoming that little problem though, and recently put together a video demonstrating a few of the possibilities they’ve come up with. All of those rely on haptic input systems — either on their own or in conjunction with some audio output (through headphones for privacy). That includes things like a dedicated haptic keypad or haptic wheel, and different methods that could take advantage of a haptic display on a smartphone. As you can see in the video after the break, some of those options could be a bit more time consuming than an easy-to-remember password, but there’s certainly plenty of potential applications where security would trump convenience.

Manual Deskterity is a prototype digital drafting table that supports both pen and touch input. We explore a division of labor between pen and touch that flows from natural human skill and differentiation of roles of the hands. We also explore the simultaneous use of pen and touch to support novel compound gestures. We advocate a division of labor between pen and touch: the pen writes, touch manipulates, and the combination of pen+touch yields new tools. This articulates how our system interprets unimodal pen, unimodal touch, and multimodal pen + touch inputs, respectively. We contribute novel pen + touch gestures that leverage the strengths of both pen and touch; utilizing both modalities to complement one another also enables us to largely sidestep the weaknesses inherent in each modality as well.Related Posts:
