introducing the ipad

The iPad is unlike any computer you’ve ever laid your hands on. For one thing, there’s no intermediary between you and what you’re trying to do; on a regular computer, you have to learn to manipulate a pointing device like a mouse or trackpad to move a cursor on the screen so you can achieve what you need to do. On the iPad, you’re already an expert manipulator since you just use your fingers directly on the screen to move and affect what you see. If you know how to point, you know how to use an iPad, and that’s the truly exciting thing about this device: it makes personal computing truly personal.

Because iTunes evolved over the years to accommodate more than music – movies, TV shows, podcasts and more. Now it’s a great way to transfer anything to your iPad. Why is it not included on a CD?

app store

What’s all this talk about apps? Do I need them? Apps are programs that run on a computer, like your browser or word processor. They increase your device’s functionality and you should definitely browse through them to see if there’s anything you might like. Where do I get these apps? Straight from the App Store, which you can access from iTunes or the iPad app. You might find some websites showcasing various programs, but you can only get them from the App Store. Can I only get them from my computer? No: there’s a program called ‘App Store’ on your iPad.
