    Hello people! Lol
    So as you can see my username is kryptonick and I joined this forum to learn everything I need to know about the "I Pad"
    This is the first time I bought an apple product beside their iPods and to be honest I have no single idea how to work this thing beside browsing and organizing my emails
    The reason I bought the ipad is because of the simplicity in it,I see people do their works here and play games too,so I hope all of you guys here can help me out because I literally don't know how to work this thing lol

    Greetings and welcome to the forum!

    When you get a chance, you might want to download a copy of the iPad User Guide. It is available for free in several different formats.

    a) As a free PDF download from the Apple website --

    Apple - Support - Manuals

    [​IMG]

    This can (and should!) be saved on your computer and your iPad.

    b) As a free iBook once you download the free iBook app from the iTunes App Store.

    c) Online using the link provided in the Safari favorites on your iPad.

    The answers to many questions, especially if this is your first Apple mobile "iDevice", can be answered by spending some quality time with this handy document.

    So I downloaded this game from pre game.net but why doesn't it show up in front of my home screen ?
    And do i really need to create an apple id to download apps both free and priced ?

    If you are not jailbroken, the ONLY place you can download apps is through iTunes on your PC or through the App Store on your iPad. If you are jailbroken, you can also download apps from Cydia.

    And yes, you must have an Apple ID to get anything from Apple.

    If you bought your iPad brand new from an authorized Apple reseller, then it is not jailbroken. Cydia is another place to get apps if you are jailbroken. If you don't know what jailbreaking is, I do not recommend it for you.

    And how do I switch between emails when I have more than one address registered in my iPad ?
