Audrey needs a tablet with the best voice recognition, that she can then email to her desktop for cleaning up. Her computer isn't Apple, would an iPad work? Leo says that doesn't matter. Word is about formatting, you can start with an email or even text file and dictate. Formatting doesn't matter. What Leo recommends is using a notetaking app that will automatically sync it to your desktop. Evernote is a good example. Microsoft's OneNote is a great example. All Android devices will use Google's voice recognition and that's excellent. Google Keep as well.
John wants to know if an Alcatel tablet will be good for streaming video. He can get one for cheap from T-Mobile. Leo says the price may indicate a subsidized two-year contract. And if he's going to do that, AT&T is currently offering a free tablet with a two-year commitment. Stream it from the store to see. If he can get it out the door for that price, it'll also work with MINT, an MVNO that offers T-Mobile service for less.
Sal wants a small tablet for displaying photos. Leo says that iPads are always the best tablets to get; far superior to Android tablets. An iPad Mini would work as well. In fact, Google has given up on tablet development. That's a clear sign.
John got an Amazon Fire Tablet and he'd love to wipe it clean to get rid of having to go into Amazon for everything. Leo says one thing he can do is put the Google Play store on it. Once done, everything else on Android is available. Leo says he stopped using the FireTV because it was all about Amazon as well. He could maybe "root" the tablet in order to make it Android only.
Yes, there's an app for that. For the first time in their six-year history, 3Doodler is going mobile. The 3Doodler App, launched earlier in 2019, features 10+ tutorials and projects. 3Doodler said there will be weekly additions. The App is designed to help kids and adults successfully construct their own 3D projects at home. Right on the screen of the device you used to download the app you'll find stencils, tutorials and step-by-step instructions in a mobile friendly format.
Vidac's sister lost her Samsung Galaxy Tablet. How can she find it? Leo says that she can go to Google.com/dashboard and she may be able to see where it is under location information. She could also look at her Google Maps timeline if she has it and it's on (it is by default). She can at least narrow it down. Google also has a Find My Device page... Google.com/android/find
Chris needs a new tablet that supports GPS. Leo recommends the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 with LTE. Leo suggests Chris to go to his carrier store (AT&T) and tell them you're thinking of going with the competition. They'll give you a good deal to keep your business.
Chris also asks how he can mount his tablet? Leo says to put a metal disc on the back and affix it to your dash with a magnet. It's perfectly safe.
Mark got a 2017 iPad Pro from a pawn shop for about $300, which Leo says that's a pretty good deal. Should he get an iPencil for the iPad Pro? He also wants to know how to wipe out the keychain password file. Leo says that he has an iPencil for his and he rarely uses it. If you sketch or annotate notes, then it's a good option. But if you don't, save yourself $100. Also, wipe the iPad completely so there will be nothing in the keychain. Turn on Keychain syncing and it'll sync to your Mac. Can he view his password list in the iPad?
Aaron broke his iPad and wants to know if it's worth repairing. Leo says probably not, and they're not really designed to be fixed. But they're getting cheaper all the time, so it's probably better to just buy a new one. Keep an eye out for sales, because consumers can get a new iPad for around $300.
Sidip is a doctor who wants a mini tablet to use with his medical data. He also wants one that will last 24 hours during a shift. Leo says that there are small Android tablets, but they aren't great. The iPad Mini is probably Sidip's best bet. He can import his data into iBooks on the iPad, and have annotation capability. But if he does not want to go iOS, Samsung has a 7" Galaxy Tab Nook that could work. Asus and Acer also make 7" tablets to take a look at. But Leo says the Samsung is probably the best option. He could also go with a mobile phone like Google Pixel 3 or Galaxy S10.
