Our big brother site iPhoneInCanada reports this morning that the Google app for iOS has been updated to bring push notifications for both GMail and Google Calendar. This brings both web-apps more in line with the familiar pop-ups we see from the native Mail and Calendar apps in iOS. As before, the updated Google app still brings the rest of Google’s web offerings [Reader, Buzz, News, etc.] to … Read More
If you haven’t heard of OtterBox, than you haven’t heard about the strongest cases you can get for any device. OtterBox cases for the iPhone have been used widely for people who work in extreme environments such as construction. Now, the popular Commuter/Defender models have been updated for the iPad.
We got a couple sample units from OtterBox and we tested out each case on installation … Read More
Feeling the frustration trying to add an apostrophe? Switching between the ‘QWERTY’ and number keyboards slowing you down?
Try this next time you need one: press and hold the comma key and you’ll see a blue square magically appear containing a white apostrophe, let go and, there you have it, apostrophe inserted.
Alternatively, simply press the comma key and quickly flick your finger upwards. Voilà! There’s the little guy.
Got a favorite keyboard … Read More
Devour is a very simple and very effectively executed idea: a curated list of YouTube videos to watch on your iPad (or iPhone). What’s brilliant is that it isn’t even an app, its a website designed with iDevices in mind.
Here’s how they aptly describe their site:
Devour is here to help. Using a scientifically technologically artificially intelligently awesomely robotically humanly system (we hand-pick every video on the site), Devour … Read More
The best game I never finished was Riven. The sequel to Myst by Cyan Worlds took the eerie, other-worldly puzzler to new levels of beauty and complexity.
So I am extremely excited to hear that Riven HD is coming to the iPad later this fall.
Riven is perfectly suited for the iPad since the gameplay basically consists of point and clicking your way through environments. Being able … Read More
When the iPad launched, one of the more interesting accessories was a separate keyboard. At first, it seemed odd but as accessory stands for the iPad started to roll-out, users began to see how the iPad could turn into a portable iMac.

The HexaPose iPad Stand essentially turns your iPad into a mini, portable iMac. The stand is almost identical to the iMac stand and the iPad … Read More
The new writers just keep on coming, and so do the awkward virtual introductions. Here’s mine: I’m Chris (@cmsauve), I’m an accounting student, nice to meet you.
Phew, now that we got that out of the way, I can talk about something you care a whole lot more about: that magical slab from Apple. I rushed down to the States early to pick mine up, and have throughly enjoyed every … Read More
As a new writer here at iPadinCanada.ca, I now run the risk of making my first post a political polemic, but I read this article from the U.K.’s The Independent, and the gears in my head started whirring.
It talks about the struggle of Chinese workers to gain basic human rights and a fairer salary while working at companies like Foxconn, makers of electronic goods such as the iPhone and … Read More
Apple makes a great iPad case, but the neoprene material is rather thin and the cover has the tendency to get dirty very quickly. As an alternative, the Roadster Folio case from Logiix is a very similar designed case to the official Apple iPad case.
The Roadster Folio case is a 3-in-1 carbon fiber designed case that converts into a vertical stand to display the … Read More
Seems like there’s a new writer introducing themselves to the site every day, and today is no different!
I’m Sam, and like all the other writers here, I’m definitely in love with my iPad. It’s probably the last thing I put away before bed, and the first thing I wake up to. I use it as my primary computer while I’m traveling, and I’ll be happy to share and discuss productivity … Read More
