Thinking about getting an iPad....
As the title suggests I am thinking about getting an iPad. I currently own an Android based tablet, a Motorola Xoom, and whilst I am very happy with it there are some apps that I have seen that are only available for iPad, predominantly newspapers and magazines, so I am starting to consider buying one. I'm tossing up whether to get a 3G/4G version or wifi only - my Xoom is wifi only and I connect to a hotspot that my mobile phone runs (a Samsung Galaxy S) - would this be an option with the iPad? I'm sure I will have other questions so please bear with me

Hi there, I had an android tablet and whilst it was very good, the apps were rubbish compared to those on offer from iOS.
I now have a wi-fi iPad and use my Galaxy S2 to provide a hotspot when I need one.
If an app has stopped responding or closes on launch, try the following: *
Home screen *
click the Home button twice *
Tap and hold on the app *
When it jiggles, tap the (-
) to close it *
Double-click the Home button and re-open the app

Hi and welcome to the Forum!
Another reason for getting a 3G/4G is to have true GPS ability. As the chip is built into the iPad itself there is no need to have a charged iPad sim to use it and the size of the screen is just brilliant for this! Just another thought!
2 very informative threads from which you will learn many tips and shortcuts for the IPad.
iOS5 Tips and Tricks
I have so many GPS devices it isn't funny, my phone, my car and my Garmin Nuvi 255! So I take it that the non 3/4G doesn't have GPS functionality, or did I read that wrong?

I had a "play" with my mothers iPad 2 and was impressed with the interface.
