iPad question
« on: March 02, 2015, 10:51 AM »
I have a first generation iPad.  It is quickly running out of memory.  Does anyone know anything about using the Cloud external hard drive?  I need to figure out how to get my iBooks stored somewhere else.  Does anyone else use an iPad??

Thanks so much in advance for any info you can give me!

Susan

I have an iPad Air. So not sure how close this will work.

I have all my books, okay fanfiction epubs, on my Google drive. I have an app to access the drive. I also have iBooks. Most of my stories are epub format. PDFs can be read directly by Google, but you have to have a continuous connection.  The epubs give me a message that Google can't read them and would I like to open them in another program. IBooks is always an option. So I choose it and read.

Now after I'm done I can delete it because it still is in my Google drive if I want to read it again.

I'm also sure this would be easier with Apple cloud drive. But Google gives me 15 GBs free and I have multiple accounts Which I can link to the drive app.  Hope this helps

You are quite welcome!   :-*

It was my one pet peeve about Apple is that they don't take an SD card.  >:(
