Maybe I'm expecting too much from a tablet but here goes: I have an iPad 2. I like it, but I am utterly frustrated by getting non-iTunes movies onto the device, and the associated poor playback. The third party video apps are largely bad. WiFi transfers are dreadfully slow, 500KB/s is typical--my WiFi can manage about 2500KB/s on my PC. I paid $4 for It's Playing and the app doesn't work with my WiFi share and the developer offers no support to help. The playback itself is choppy as hell at random points through a video. I don't get it. I have tried other free apps and they seem to all suffer from stuttering issues. These are movies less than 2GB in size, I wouldn't think they are of a bit rate too high for an iPad to handle. Furthermore with virtually all apps having lost their AC3 audio playback, many videos just won't have working audio. Is there anything I can do? Are there better apps available on the Cydia store for jailbroken iPads? Am I better off with an Android tablet with this sort of usage? I remember with my old Android phone I could just plug the phone in and drop a movie right on and play it without hassle. I didn't have to do that weird sideload the movie into the app directly through iTunes (which is super slow). Anyway, I know this is a negative post but I'm a happy iPhone user and I want to like my iPad, but I'm very frustrated. Ideas? Is an Apple tablet just not for a guy who wants to watch a ton of movies and TV shows?
