Got an original iPad running IOS 5.1.1

Is there any software that will allow me to drag and drop avi, mp4 etc on it to watch without using itunes? Some software that will turn it into a removable device or something? Then software to play it? It's jailbroken.


From the PC you can use iFunbox.

From the iPad, VLC player

I've just started playing a game called Monument Valley. Really enjoying it.

Costs £2.50 but well worth it in my opinion.

Has anyone managed to get Fifa 2014 working on an iPad Mini?

Since the latest 7.1 updates the app just crashes immediately, as soon as the first screen comes up, any way round this as the game is good on my iPhone?

Switch you ipad off then on again


If that doesn't work,

Delete it and reinstall it.

My Ipad Mini is arriving sometime today special delivery and I am off on holiday tomorrow. I wont have much time to play with it or do any research whatsoever but really want the Ipad ready for music and films for my hols.

What is the best App for watching downloaded films on the Ipad Mini.  Film formats will probably be MKV, AVI and MP4

Also, I have read it's great as an E-Reader, so what is the bet app to use to download a few of the latest bestsellers?

cheers :wave

I use CineXplayer for playing my movies on it.

Apple have their own apps for music, videos and books though, so could just use those for simplicity to be honest.

Pete, if you're going to be using books which you've 'acquired' *wink wink* I would suggest a non-official reader like BlueFire or CloudReaders.

Bluefire is very good.

To be honest mate I didn't know you could 'Acquire' books.

I 'acquire' films from the usual torrent places.  Are books found in the same places?

Absolutely. The New York Times bestseller list which is updated every month is well worth 'aquiring', also there is a 500 great novels torrent on there somewhere - loads of modern stuff on there - crime thrillers, Bourne books, Jo Nesbo etc etc.

Just depends what version you acquire of the book-you-already-own-in-hard-copy-format-that-you-bought-from-Smiths-in-88 though :)

I like Bluefire, lots of extra functionality and display options.

What network are you on?

Are they both 'constantly on' as in run fairly battery intensive processes all the time?

Very likely. I pared down my iPhone to just a few essential apps, games and the podcast app, and I would reckon that the battery was 25-30% longer lasting.

I turned off that parallax effect and noticed an improvement in battery.

It's under settings > general > accessibility > reduce motion (set it to on)


Also I try to keep my brightness low depending or where I am. Screen brightness will have a big impact on battery life.


If that doesn't help then time to get a replacement battery.
