Re: Any suggestions for making use of first generation iPad?

I asked a question concerning my iPad 2 about downloading the Kindle app to read Kindle ebooks on the iPad. I tried a suggestion posted on that thread and I went to the Apple Store and put in the Search window, "kindle app for ipad" and I get, "Your search had no results. Try searching again." Huh? How could I be more obvious?

So I tried "kindle reader for ipad" and got the same response! I know I'm not the king of internet search understanding but what am I missing here?

BTW, Amazon's reader doesn't support the older versions; my iPad has version 9.3.5.

The Apple search engine for the App store is horrific.

Thanks for that Ram. What did you input to get there?

But it's a moot point anyway. Needs iOS 12 or newer. I guess I'll just use the iPad for a drink tray or a cutting board or something...

I put my old iPad in the kitchen where the wife uses it to look up recipes while cooking.

That’s why your search turned up nothing — I’m pretty sure iOS App searches do not return hits for apps with OS requirements newer than the installed OS.



It is what it is.

Some people, like me, use an older iPad as a digital photo displayer. Have 1600 pics on it that randomly display pics. The hardest part is finding an app that will display the pics randomly that will work on older iPads. We have ours setting just below the TV - something to watch during commercials, etc.

Of course, it has to be plugged in as the battery won't last all day. Ours is on 14 or so hours a day. LyleH

I just typed in what to search for. There was no request for any info of the device I was going to use the app on. But it still wouldn't surprise me...

Is it possible to score an old version of Kindle that will work on an old iPad?
I still have Kindle on 2011's fire sale HP TouchPad, and it still works.

IIRC, the iPad 2 only came out a couple of months, or so, before the HP TP.

The App Store doesn’t need you to tell it what OS you are using to access it...
