    Have not had a problem with this in the past, but now, today, my pictures won't upload. When I select one, it's like the system is hung.....all the little indicator thingys are turning, but nothing happens and I eventually have to cancel to get back to my post.

    Now, we did upgrade the iPad to IOS 8 last night, so I don't know if this is a problem with the GPF site or something with my iPad.

    @Ian or anyone else have any solutions I can try?

    Until you get the problem fixed try uploading to photobucket. if that works, you can share those photos on here.

    Can you move over to your PC? Is it Windows or Apple?

    PC is windows. Actually, at Boy Scout camp at the moment, so iPad & iPhone are all I have access to. I can try using the iPhone.....tomorrow. Too sleepy to worry about it........ YAWN!

    Mmathis, good luck with your tech issues. Did you hear the very first person to buy a I6 I phone dropped it? A reporter asked him about it outside the store and he opened up the box to show it and it fell out! He said it was fine but it really wasn't :(

    Thanks for letting me know!

    It could be a problem with iOS8 and the forum software, so I'll do some digging on the official forums and see if I can find a workaround :).

    Let me know what you think of the update. I haven't gone to 8 yet. Waiting to see how it all shakes out.

    I have an iPad Air and an iPhone 5 [I think it's a 5 -- hard to keep up]. Hubby and DS are Android users, but they tolerate my Apples, LOL! I love having and using the devices, but Hubby is the "techy" one in the family, so he is in charge of downloads, upgrades, and figuring out why something doesn't work, etc. He doesn't like Apple at all, so has to complain about the hoops he has to go through to get a simple task accomplished [but who knows if they are real or perceived hoops -- he's a guy.....]. But, it WAS an issue that we had to get rid of LOTS of accumulated "stuff" before iOS8 would even install -- NO! I love my "stuff!" But it was OK in the end, LOL! It was mostly moving all my thousands :eek: of photos onto the computer hard drive.

    When we first upgraded to iOS8, all was OK until some of my apps started crashing, and things happened like this issue with uploading pics. There were some changes to screens or the way an app appeared on-screen, but they were mostly subtle things, easy to get used to. If there was anything significant, I've either gotten used to it, it hasn't applied to me, or I haven't encountered it yet. I can't tell yet about battery life since they get sucked dry anyway...... Plus, I have a Mophie battery case on the iPhone, so I don't pay as much attention to the phone's charge.

    I hope that helps -- I'm happy with the update so far, but what do I know......

    LOL I appreciate it. I had read that upgrading you Itunes and then using your computer to upgrade your phone is a work around for the amount of storage involved in upgrading. My hubby is an Android guy as well. And I agree, Apple makes even the simplest things tough sometimes. I am working on turning off my icloud so my daughter can have the additional storage and it's been a PITA to get done. But I love having my music and phone all together so until Android can play Itunes, I'm stuck. :)

    That's what Hubby did -- what you said about using the computer. I think that was the first good comment he's ever made regarding my phone, LOL!

    Hubby & DS do a lot on SPOTIFY and PANDORA, so storage & playlists aren't that big of a deal for them. But I have my music from iTunes. Another Hubby-complaint is what is or isn't available from iTunes, but then there are JUST as many things that come up that I have available to me that they [Hubby & DS] don't have via Android -- so it's often a trade-off. I do wish I had FLASH, but then I really do like the "lightening plug"......

    My biggest complaint, and I don't know if it's an iPhone problem so much as a Mophie problem, but it has to do with the earphone jack. You have to use a pig-tail [short extension] in order to use earphones since the jack is where the case plugs in at the bottom, and so far every single pig-tail I've gotten -- even a Mophie branded one -- starts to cut out after a while and esp if you're moving around a lot. They're not expensive, but it is a pain. They are supposed to be making a newer version that comes with built-in extra memory. But I'll be due for a phone upgrade soon, and I don't know if they are making any battery cases yet for the iPhone 6 -- the new phone may have to wait. I do like my Mophie case, and it's even red like the pic :) image.jpg

    Get wireless earbuds!! I use Jaybird Bluebuds and I LOVE them. I use them at the gym and in the backyard while working on the pond. I don't have to carry my phone and I can still take phone calls. They have a good battery life, (they usually last longer than I do). Highly recommend them! But then again, I hated the cords from regular earbuds.

    I may have to consider that. Hubby just got some kind of little wireless speaker that we use when outside, but hadn't thought about the earbuds. But one of my uses involves the noise-canceling feature and not sure if that would be something available on wireless ones. Wouldn't hurt to check it out -- Hubby is always looking for some new gadget to buy for me :)

    They have the over the ear kind that might have the noise cancelling feature. I prefer the earbuds for running and these work great. They have these little wings that fit into your ear to hold them in place. I just love them. Hmmm, what kind of wireless speaker? Now that's a great idea for entertaining.
