    Hi, I'm a long-time Android user, and the iPad Mini that I got yesterday
    is the first Apple device that I own. The two systems are quite different
    and there's seem to be a lot to learn, so I'm very happy to have found
    this Forum while searching the web for answers to some setup problems.
    Thanks everybody.:)

    Hi, welcome to iPF! I'm sure you'll learn a lot here, and if you need help, don't bother to ask. Yoi'll get it in no time. The members and moderators are very friendly and helpful.
    It's really a big difference between Android and Apple, but as soon as you get to know your device a little better, you'll discover that it's easy to work with. So enjoy your new iPad and this forum!
