My New Yorker Ipad app is crashing and closing within 20 seconds of opening an issue. I wrote new yorker tech support and they sent these instructions but they don't work:
Please try resetting your app using the following instructions.
1. From the iPad home screen, tap twice on the home button and the apps
that are running on your device will appear along the bottom row.
2. Hold down the icons until they "shake".
3. Tap on the red circle to reset your application. This does not delete
4. Double tap the home button again to return to all of your apps.
5. Open the app and allow for your library to update. All of your issues
should now be available for download.
I think they addressed the wrong problem. I've rewrote them but because of the holiday there is no reply. Any suggestions of what to try next? I'd like to be able to read what I've paid for

What apps would a 50-year old Chinese or Vietnamese person have on their iPad?
I'm thinking of getting my parents iPads, since I've really enjoyed mine, think that it'd be simple enough for them to use, and easy enough to do technical support for. They aren't that technically savvy and don't speak English well so I'd like to get them started first on some easy to use apps where they could get content such as foreign news, music, and television shows.

OK, Batman, riddle me this: If an iPad the size of a writing tablet can hold up to 64GB of stuff and my iPod Classic that fits in the palm of my hand can hold up to 160GB of stuff, why can't an iPad hold up to 160GB or more of stuff? [more inside]

Nook for iPad filter: Is there a way to see a USABLE table of contents for a Nook book on the iPad? I can display the TOC for a book -- but each TOC line shows only ~20 characters, and that's not enough to make it useful. (Not worried about page #s -- they change with font size -- but I do need to see the broad TOC frequently.)

Very happy owner of a new Ipad2 (with 3g). Are you an Ipad user/owner? What are your absolute favorite apps? And why? I have looked at a lot of prior threads asking for best apps for particular purposes, including this one
about best apps for gifting, but I'm actually just interested in finding out the apps MeFi people love the most.

What connection kit and software do you recommend for amp modeling and recording guitar on iOS? I'd like to plug the guitar into the connector, pick an amp, record stuff, then get the audio files either off the device or into other apps for mixing.

I'm looking for a "flipping page" online catalog viewer for print catalogs. Hoping to find something that will work for iPad, iPhone and Android. Ideally I'd like something self-hosted, but that is not a deal breaker. The ability to add image map-like links to URLs is needed. The source file is a PDF built in InDesign.
