When you are out on an extended trip, do you find yourself having a difficult time keeping your iPad from filling up with all of the movies, music, and T.V. shows you want to bring with you?

Welcome to PadGadget’s first edition of iPad Tips in 2014. We’ve been hot on the trail of all kinds of tips, tricks, and advice for iPad owners throughout 2013. Now, it’s time to ring in the New Year. Last week, we told you how to set up a new Apple ID on your iPad. It is hard to imagine that everyone in the U.S. doesn’t already have an Apple ID, but it is possible.
This week, we have some tips for iOS users who have a new device and want to add old content to it. If you’ve recently upgraded from an older iPad and didn’t transfer content, you can still download the apps, games, movies, and music that you have previously purchased in iTunes.
Apple has started the New Year off with a Bang. This is the first week of 2014 to have a spotlight for new and updated apps and games in the App Store. Each week, Apple gives a special nod to a collection of apps that are deemed worth of the Editor’s Choice award. Last week, Starguide received the nod. The recently updated app now features 64-bit compatibility for time-lapse imaging.
This week, Chillingo was honored once again for a fun physics-based game. This sequel has better graphics, improved game mechanics, and plenty of brand new puzzles.
According to a recent report from Ad Age, mobile advertising has finally hit a huge boom. The report shows that the mobile market drove nearly all digital advertising growth in 2013 and is expected to grow another five billion dollars in 2014.

The annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is set to take place this January 7 – 10. Each year, the gadget conference fills with hundreds of iPhone and iPad related products for us to look forward to in the following year. One of our favorite outdoor accessories, the iGrill, is getting an upgrade this year and iDevices will be on hand to demonstrate it for lucky attendees. Additionally, iDevices will be showing off a new propane level checker called iLP.
Yesterday, CBS announced that, for the first time, the broadcast company will live-stream coverage of the American Football Conference portion of the National Football League playoffs. The entire conference will be available to stream on laptops, desktops, and tablets via CBSSports.com.
If there were any game of 2013 that could be considered one of the top titles of the year it would be Candy Crush Saga. The deliciously simple match-three game won the hearts of iOS users all year long. It has steadily remained on the Top Grossing Games list in the App Store since it launched. This week, the game’s developer, King, has launched a new match-three title that is a little healthier, but just as fun.
Welcome to the first Flashback Friday of 2014. It is hard to believe that the New Year has already come. It seems like just a few months ago, we were voting in a new president. I guess what they say about time being relevant is true. That’s why we love to talk about the good old days. Last week, we presented our readers with a list of retro and classic games we thought were the best in 2013. It’s time to get a new list started for a new year. Read More »
Just before the New Year, NPD Group released a report showing that Apple increased its share of the tablet marked during the Holiday season by 2.6 percent. While those numbers could mean millions of new iPad owners, it is still much lower than Android’s success this holiday season. NPD Group reported an increase of 160 percent of Android tablet sales during Christmas.
About a year ago, rumors began to surface that Apple was working on wearable computing technology in the form of a watch. No one has been able to nail down precisely what the so-called “iWatch” will be capable of, but some analysts claim it will be a companion device to let you access certain things on your iPhone or iPad without having to be near it.
The company applied for a patent for a slap wrist style computer device earlier this year. In July, Bloomberg confirmed that Apple submitted a request in Japan for the iWatch name.
