    I am a new user of an iPad, seeking any suggestions !

    Hello
    I am a new owner of an iPad, and would welcome any suggestions anyone might have to get the most out of my iPad. I have had an I touch for years and would really like to get my music from it on to my iPad without loosing what I have on my iPad now. I lost my iTunes library file for the music on my iptouch when my laptop was stolen and have been told that I will not be able to transfer it without loosing the apps and what not, on my new iPad.
    I would also welcome and suggestions for my iPad, with respect to apps and so on, that are "Apps to have"
    Thanks very much
    Jake

    No, most of the music came from multiple sources over the years.

    Well that makes it a lot harder, I'm guessing that you have no backup of your laptop hard drive?

    There is software out there that will allow you to drag all the media from one device into your computer/iTunes. I have done this before and I did it with free software, it was a long time ago and I can't remember what the software was called but a bit of googling should get you what you want. Once it's back in a computer you can sync it to your iPad.

    All is not yet lost!

    Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!

    Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.

    Have fun and enjoy your iPad


    If you don’t already have it you can download a copy of the iPad manual for free.
