Video: Full 290 Megabyte American Magazine PDF On iPad Air 2 With iOS 9

I’m in a state of shock.

Not only did it download the PDF that iOS 8.x couldn’t, it opened in iBooks and worked as above.

The video is short because the nearby Mini I used ran out of capacity for the video(!).

I will now go wander the bitter streets of Manhattan in a daze.

More maybe later…

iOS 9: Today Is The Day To See This Multitasking Video

iOS9SlideoverYT01001

That’s frikkin iBooks up there under his finger!

And since Safari also does split screen, I should be able to have Safari open to the Google Books page and iBooks open next to it. Ideally, I should be able to open a Google Books PDF in iBooks without exiting Safari.

I will find that out later today. It’s my plan to try it at an Apple Store on an iPad Air 2.

Fondle: Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0

Alas, no video.

The 9.7 kept opening the YouTube app instead of the site in Chrome.

Just came across that.

I don’t know if it’s a new front page or one from the beginning of ScanOps.

Same tests as yesterday, minus CBZ file, and this time on the iPad Air — which has a more powerful CPU than the iPad Mini, plus 2GBs of RAM.

Thunderbirds Are Go 1966 [48 MBs]

The Thinking Machine [3.5 MBs] [Google Books PDF]

Secret Service: The Bradys: The Queen of Chinatown [8.7 MBs] [Google Books PDF]

LIFE July 1969 Moon (Retina?) [31.5 MBs]

Comic Books

App via APK Downloader: Comics Reader app (Kervala) [Google Play Store link]

Google Books PDF Test: Insignia Flex Elite 7.85, Again (And A Word About The Asus ZenPad S 8.0).

I wanted to see if Best Buy’s stock had changed.

It hasn’t.

Only one out of the four has the Insignia Flex Elite 7.85. And only one has the Asus ZenPad S 8.0. And they are located miles apart.

It’s taken this long for all four to finally stock the Samsung Galaxy Tab A!

Anyway, on a lark, I decided to download SmartQ Reader to the Insignia. It’d been recommended to me previously by Vis1-0N in a Comment months ago.

I figured, why not?

I’m soooo glad I did!
