    Hi Guys,
    Daff signing onto this excellent forum...
    I resisted grabbing an iPad for years - I thought Windows was all I needed... Wrong!
    I bought an iPad 2 a couple of weeks ago and it's pretty amazing stuff. I know absolutely nothing about the iPad, so this forum, in the company of experts, is the obvious place to learn.
    I'm looking forward to picking up all sorts of tips and tricks as I've read that an iPad is so much more than just, well, an iPad!

    Regards
    Daff.
    :)

    Oh, first question... I notice that I'm an iPF Noob. Does someone wish to tell me what one of those is then? :eek:

    Hi there and welcome.

    A noob is just a tag to show that you are new......as you contribute more on the forums your tag will change.

    There is lots of good advice and info on here plus plenty of members all too willing to help with any problems.

    Remember, search is your friend. If you can't find the answer you need and you post a question then give as much info as you can to help members help you i.e. iPad 1 or 2, etc. and iOS version and name of app if the problem is with a specific app........and please don't forget to read the forum rules http://www.ipadforums.net/forum-rules-help-info/2119-forum-rules-everybody-please-read.html

    These are the hacking section rules for all you jail breakers (and would be jail breakers) http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-hacking/2892-hacking-section-rules-please-read.html

    We also have an app for this forum. The link to download the app is: Discussion Forum for iPad Users for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad on the iTunes App Store and a great tutorial/guide for using the IPF App here http://www.ipadforums.net/new-membe...sistance/107524-ipad-forums-app-tutorial.html

    You can download the manual for your iPad here http://help.apple.com/ipad/6/ and here http://support.apple.com/manuals/ and in iBooks search for "iPad user guide for" and you will find free comprehensive manuals for iOS 4, 5, 6, etc.

    Hi Daffo,

    You have made 3 smart moves IMO.....
    1. Purchased an iPad
    2. Joined this forum
    3. Chosen a great Avatar.

    Welcome aboard. As an actor (Cannot remember whom!) used to say "You'll do!" :)

    Sent from my iPad using iPF
