Yes, Skinmonkey, I started with the IPF app, and did the Search there first. Then I Googled my questions and one time was directed to the iPad forum site (right to the right topic), and the next time, I was directed to an Apple support discussion. That's what prompted my question.

Hi Madreliz, I wondered about that with the app-because I had done the same with the app and went nowhere.

Well if you can't find the topic you are searching for I always say just start a new thread. It doesn't hurt to ask and the mods here are too nice and won't come down on ya.
At least you made an effort to search. Most people don't and that's why there are so many topics that are repeated.

iPod Touch 4th Gen-Black-8G-WiFi
Like I said, it's a forum, not a search engine. Even if a question has been asked before, it may have been under a different version of the OS, or the posters problem might be subtly different. There are new members joining all the time, and someone may have an answer.
There are certain subjects that have been done to death, mentioning nothing in particular (Flash), but the majority of questions are fair game.
Don't forget, most people don't search for unanswered questions either, so it makes sense that a question will likely only get an answer while it's in the first couple of pages of the new topics list. And that is one reason we are so heavy on the bumping rule, which I'll repeat here. Too much bumping can wreck the forum so here's the reminder.
Reminder - Rule 4.3
4.3. Do not “bump” a post to attract attention to it. If, after 48 hours, you have not received a response on a question you may bump your post one (1) time. If you still do not receive a response send a private message (PM) to a moderator and ask for assistance. Bumping posts may subject the post to deletion.Please review all our forum rules here
