    Greetings to all members of the forum from an iPad learner.
    I got my iPad at the end of June - a birthday gift from a very generous son.
    He has an iPad himself and is quite envious that mine is an iPad 2, whereas he has the original version!
    I have already installed a fair number of apps - most of them free. I find some are quite excellent but there are others that are not really worth keeping. Will probably have a bit of a clear-out soon to get rid of any clutter.
    Have you any ideas on what the average age of members might be? I don't mind admitting that I am an octogenarian and I do wonder whether there any other members of my generation who try to keep up with these modern times. I got into computers quite a few years ago - some rather less than fond memories of some of that early kit such as Commodore 64 and Amstrad PCs of the 1980s era!

    There is a thread which asks for average age and it seems there is a huge variation. I got my first iPad at launch but had an iPhone for nearly 2 years. I am 51 by the way.

    Welcome to the iPad clan so don't forget to use these forums to ask for help. We all need it sometimes.

    Hi there and welcome to the Forum. There is a thread here asking the age of iPad users, the results were a little surprising in that they showed that there's many many older iPad users amongst us. If you do a search you will find it as you will find many answers to any questions you may have. If you cannot find what you are looking for, then by all means post your question, there's many friendly folk here to help you. Enjoy!!

    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.
