Is there a good free anti virus? I bought a Norton one for my grand daughter's Samsung Galaxy, but would prefer a freebie for mine. I use Avira on my desk and laptops.
Cloud storage. I tunes has a bit of free cloud but charge about £23 to swap between PC's. The Galaxy came with so called free 500 gig of cloud, but wanted a credit card no, so they could charge, I think, £50 or £30 next year. I would prefer to use one or more USB Hd's. Is it worth paying for cloud that charges? I know about dropbox for small transfers.
You will not need an anti-virus for the iPad. Of course the situation needs reviewing over time but currently the threat is nil as all of the apps are vetted by Apple. It is more secure than Android.
Not sure why you need a lot of cloud storage. I back the iPad up to my PC and then the PC is backed up. Cloud is useful for transferring docs and I find the free DropBox is sufficient for documents etc. PhotoStream supplied with the iPad means that photos taken on the iPad get transferred to the PC easily. If you have an iPhone then its photos also appear in Photostream.
Thank you. I realise that a tablet is an extension of a PC, as was and is the iPod, of which it is a big brother (Or sister). I will continue to do my back ups on other HD's as I do now. That way even a reset would not lose stuff. I agree re cloud but wondered why Samsung "gave" 500 gig with a Galaxy 7" tab - I think a gimmick to get people to sign up for a paid version next year, as I only have about 80 gig of data on 2 PC's!When I challenged the Currys sales guy he gave some bull** about cloud and the future, which I did not accept.
I am reassured re anti virus. If I could green tick, I would!
I will indeed get the find my phone app. I did have it on a grand daughters iPod but it only worked if the iPod was in contact with a wi fi, which most of the time it was not. An iPad will be more normally in a wi fi zone. PS I assume the apps that offer Sat Nav use that technology, not 3 or 4G?
