I really haven't paid too much attention to that yet. I do know that having wi-fi on uses more battery though.
Though for me, I'm not too worried about that stuff yet. I want my SD card to work properly first and get the G-sensor working correctly.
I also need to the wi-fi to be consistent also. It seems that here and there I have trouble connecting unless I go into my router settings and change the channel.
Sometimes I power on the tablet and wi-fi hooks right up and other times it is disconnected for some reason and takes ages to connect again.
Not sure why it disconnects on it's own anyway.
Are you still using the same ROM that came with the FT3? from another forum I got this link for an update that is supposed to be great, supposed, heh, I did not try yet as I am waiting on Battery info before I buy one, but if you want it you can download it with instructions here: http://www.********/apadforum/showthread.php?416-Hybrid-ROM-(rooted)
So I found a little interesting deal ...
I was tired of taking the Micro-SD card out of the USB adapter so I thought to just leave it in and plug the USB/w card in the tablet.
Well it worked and it worked great. No messing with that tiny little card and trying to insert it in the slot and never mind taking it out. You need tiny fingers.
I noticed one thing though. If you go into MY PAD while it is plugged in, it has an unmount like you do with just using the card alone. But guess what. IT ACTUALLY UNMOUNTS !!
I find it strange that you can use either way to load movies or music or whatever, but only one (USB) will allow you to unmount. This is still an issue I think needs to be addressed though. Not everyone wants a USB dongle sticking out. Problem is, you cant unmount the card by itself for whatever reason.
I'm going to be needing to swap cards from time to time and don't want them getting messed up due to not unmounting or ejecting properly.
I'm not sure if this is a firmware issue for this tablet or not. I haven't seen any other posts about this. There are so many different Flytouch III / SuperPAD II out there.
Like have mentioned. The box mine came in said ANYPC. Now if that even means anything, I don't know. These could all be the same pad only shipped in different boxes due to place of purchase.
I do want to try a straight flash drive. As it is now I technically just have an SD card in a USB adapter. SO it sorta doesn't count.
I'm trying to see if one of my brothers has a large USB flash drive.
Even so, I still want to use just an SD card as it is smaller and out of the way compared to the flash drive sticking out. Problem, as I have mentioned, is there is no "eject" or "unmount" that actually works for the SD card. You can click unmount until your blue in the face and it doesn't actually do it. You get the error "SD card is not inserted in"
You dont really want to have multiple microSD cards for the external slot as android starts to install stuff onto them eg: titanium backups, game data, app data, etc. When the microsd dissappears (If you swap it with another one), these apps will not work. You are best to load up your movies via a USB key or over the network and copy them direct to your microsd in your external or internal slot.
I am also a new owner of a Flytouch III and was hoping somebody would be able to help. The main thing I want to be able to do with my device is view and do some very basic text editing of simple, but large MS Word documents.
However, I am struggling to find a free app that will allow me to do that. I've tried Olive Office, but it just crashed all the time.
So I moved onto Documents to Go by Dataviz, which I've used before on my Palm Treo and was very happy with. The free version loads my biggest document just fine and seems able to comfortably scroll around it. The problem is, while I'm happy to pay for the full version which allows me to edit, I'm unsure of whether I can get it working because Dataviz don't just give you a license key, which would be ideal, but expect you to download the "Documents To Go Full Version Key" from the Market (which doesn't appear on the Flytouch because it's a paid app) or use the option to send an email to my Android device with the download for the Full Version Key. However, I tried that before when I was first trying to install the free version of Documents to Go and the Flytouch III doesn't seem to capable of handling that type of link.
Basically, I don't want to pay the $15 and find I can't install the thing.
So really, my question is: is there a way of making my device install apps from anywhere other than the Android Market? Or does anyone know of a good document editor that will handle large (over 80,000 words) MS Word documents that is free and/or installable on the Flytouch III?
