    Hi Jamie

    I have tried nothing to fix the problem, mainly because I have no idea of what to do next.  I was kind of hoping it would just go away by itself (not very likely I know).

    Hi Jamie

    I have found this at our school too.  We are using configurator (but not wirelessly) and I thought it was just that the apps were unsupported.  I would be keen to find a solution to this problem as well.

    I have had a request from one of our teachers who work with special needs children.  She has asked about the best way to download videos from youtube on an ipad (i.e. without having to connect to a computer).  She wants the children to be easily able to access learning videos from youtube without always having to search for it on youtube, and always be connected to the internet.

    I have seen there are various apps that can do this, but many of them seem to have age restrictions on being downloaded. 

    Just wondering if anyone has got an app/method they would recommend in this situation.

    Many thanks for your time

    I am certainly no expert on configurator (or confounderator as I call it) but have you turned off find my ipad.  This has caused me no end of problems with configurator.  Depending on the update and operating system you are running find my ipad appears to send bugs into the system.

    I am looking in apple profile manager as well for when we start getting more ipads (we current have 50).  Sounds like from what I have heard you need to get a mini mac server for it to run well (but again I am no expert and could be wrong with the detail).

    Good luck.  I can feel your pain

    What version of configurator do you use to no longer have to buy additional licence copies?  I was having this issue the other day.  I think I am using 1.2 at the present, but I have been reluctant to upgrade after hearing some of the horror stories through this discussion group.

    To be quite honest, I am in two minds about using apple configurator, mainly because of the trouble in removing photos off the ipads.  We have very limited wireless within our school (hopefully to change in the future).  Would it be best to just deploy apps through configurator, but not supervise the device? Would we the apps we have paid for through VPP be lost if we unsupervised our devises?

    Any advice would be much appreciated.
