Can I print with my iPad in the field?

Yes. Please view our Printing Instructions for more information.

How do I backup my comments and reports?

There are a couple ways. First, when you send your reports to your clients, your email address is automatically carbon copied to the email, so you instantly receive a backup copy of your reports when you send them. The other method works via the Dropbox cloud service. Spectacular integrates with your Dropbox account to provide a clear backup and restore capability. When you backup within Spectacular, a Backup folder is created in your Dropbox that clearly shows all the backups you performed. If you ever need to restore one of these backups, just choose Restore from within Spectacular on your new iPad and you're back where you left off.

Do you charge for support?

No way. Support is always free whether you're a paying customer or not. Even if you're just learning Spectacular with the sample report, shoot us an email or phone call, and we'll be glad to help. Most likely though your question is in this FAQ or in our Help Manual, but if not, definitely don't hesitate to connect with us.

Does Spectacular have voice recognition?

Yes. Actually, voice recognition is built into the iPad and Spectacular utilizes this capability. Tap the microphone button on the keyboard and talk your text in rather than type it. Also, if you are offline, you can instead record a voice note to review later.

How do I take pictures in the dark with the flash-less iPad?

The smaller iPad Pro is the only iPad that has a flash. Otherwise, you'd use your digital camera for a flash photo. Apple sells a camera SD card adapter that plugs into the iPad, and then it's like choosing the photos from the iPad picture library.
