does anyone use the iphone5 ? or ipad mini?
« on: May 05, 2013, 09:18:31 AM »

  I was wondering if any techs on here  use  the iphone5  or the minipad when their out in the field?

  Me and my son have the older iphones  and  we where thinking of upgrading because  when we pull

  up documents  and service manuals  the we have uploaded  to our   older  iphones  we  cant  see  the

   whole page??   

   Does  the new  iphone 5  or  Apple  mini ipad  work for better viewing?   :thanks:

My iPhone 5 works great. I use the google drive app with it all the time to view service manuals.

I have an Acer tablet with Android and I can expand and search just like an I pad and such. What I like is where I am located cell service is poor, so I can just insert a flash drive and look at downloaded manuals. Can't do that on an Apple. When I have cell service it works great as well. I really do like Apple products but that was a defining point for me.

That is something I wish you could do with Apple products. Not so much for when I can't get online, but so I would not have to worry about storage capacity on my iPhone.

I use an Acer tablet as well, but as the man said, cell service is spotty at best, DL to flash drive works best and avoids the laptop to viewing files, though that is in the truck if needed.

I use a samsung galaxy 3 and it works great for drive.  Also have an android tablet that works well.
