Improvements: iPad ELN is now integrated with Evernote.
The hosted evaluation allows you to evaluate iPad without having to install the iPad Server (the Server is hosted on our computer). Simply download the iPad Editor and connect to the remote iPad evaluation server. Note that a hosted evaluation is limited since you do not have administrative rights for the evaluation server.
Windows: download iPadEditorWindows.zip, unzip the file, and click on iPad.exe to start iPad.
Mac: download iPadEditorMac.zip and unzip the file. Make sure that you have Java already installed on your Mac before proceeding to the next step. Open the Terminal utility (located in Applications/Utilities), enter cd "path"/iPadEditorMac (where "path" is the path to the folder where iPadEditorMac is located), and run the command ./install_java5.sh. Finally, run the command ./iPadEditor.sh to start iPad.
Access to the iPad Evaluation Server: login using the guest account: username=guest, password=guest. You can also view stored information on the Web via the iPad Portal: http://ipadeln.com/portal.html.
If you have problems starting iPad, it is likely that you have not fully unzipped the downloaded folder. For example, clicking on a zipped folder usually only shows the folder contents but the folder itself remains zipped. Make sure to fully unzip the folder before starting iPad.
Note that the speed of interaction with the evaluation server is likely to be lower than if the iPad server were installed in your lab (due to the lower connection bandwidth and the higher number of concurrent server connections by other evaluators).
To install the full iPad system in your lab, you need to install the iPad Server on a dedicated lab computer (see below). If you prefer, we can also host your iPad server on one of our computers.
The full evaluation allows you to install iPad Server on your computer. You can then install iPad Editors linked to your own iPad Server and try the complete iPad installation with up to 5 users within your laboratory.
1. Download iPad Server, unzip the file, and follow the installation instructions.pdf
Linux: partial (requires third-party components, can be used for updates).
2. Install iPad Editor on the users’ computers: iPad Editor Installation Instructions.pdf - for Mac or Windows. Note: the hosted evaluation version of the Editor is not compatible with your server.
