I got iBooks for my iPad. Very shortly after going through the download process (on my laptop) the iPad made a sound - I think indicating that the app was indeed on it. And if I look in "App Store" iBooks is certainly there. But outside of "App Store" there is no indication on the iPad that it exists.
Is this because I have not yet managed to get any content downloaded for it? I've tried to do that but have thus far been unable. I have to use iTunes for that, right? But the iTunes help is not clear about whether it will work at all. I just want to download one pdf file, it happens to contain sheetmusic, to see how iBooks handles sheetmusic. So I think that I want to manually "sync" something. The iTunes help says what kinds of files you can and cannot manually sync but doesn't identify the files by file types and doesn't indicate one way or the other, in what I've read so far, whether you can download a pdf file.
I read a post which said that you have to use iTunes File>Add File to Library. I went through that dialog, but after I selected the file the dialog just ended. As if it had done everything it was going to do. But it had never given me a change to say the the file was destined for iBooks.
Where's the iBooks icon? How do I get some pdfs downloaded to it? I have Dropbox on the iPad and it contains many of my sheetmusic pdfs. Is there some way Dropbox can provide one of the pdfs to iBooks?
