    Hi, I'm new here and have already had a question answered! Thanks so much. Am very new to "tech" and my son (13) finds it hilarious and embarrassing that I know so little! Hoping to gain more gems on here...

    Warm welcome to the forum Cornishlass. What do those kids know?:) A bit longer on this forum and you'll be able to dazzle him with your knowledge of your iPad. Ask away if anything puzzles you and make any posts you feel like in any of our discussion areas. Many questions have already been tackled here which can be found with the Search function.
    I see you are from Somerset. I'm from South Australia myself. I remember when touring your beautiful, and historic, area your region had really great B&Bs and wonderful scenery.

    Regards, Andrew

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    Your son sounds the same as my girls were when I first received my iPad. I was a constant source of merriment for them.......that all changed when they received iPad Minis for Christmas and needed my help. ;)

    3 very informative threads from which you will learn many tips and shortcuts for the IPad.

    Kids are great. They ask a dozen questions, and only remember the one you couldn't answer.

    Keeps you on your toes, though.
