I am loving my iPad more everyday. I went a little app happy just like I did for my iPhone but now I am finding + option on task bar next to bookmark is great. It gives the option down loading a lot of the web pages I enjoy such as Twitter and Facebook without using the mobile apps. In some cases safari is more workable and this way I don't have to into base computer to change options. I am regretting buying some of the apps when I did not need them. So for the newbies take your time with the apps. Play with your baby first. Try the free apps first. Don't misunderstand me apps are necessary to keep your iPad and I love most of them. I just mean this a computer and if you open webpages to safari and put them on your screen you will have access to some of the web pages without using app.
Love your iPad.
