    Hi! Welcome to iPF!

    I'm extremely sorry to say, but there is high chance that you, being a new iTunes user are out of luck.

    There is no harm in trying, so try these steps and check whether it happens or not.

    1. Sign into your Apple Account from iTunes and iPad. If you don't have one, make it.

    2. Download the latest version from iTunes on your computer. (NOT iPAD)

    3. From App Store > Purchased, try to download the app on your iPad now.

    Let's hope this works. Please post back! Good luck!

    Apple no longer manufactures iPad 1. The only models currently are the iPad 4 and iPad Air and mini. It may be useless if the above mentioned steps don't work.

    Sorry to say, this will not work because the iPad was never backed up before, that it would back up the app data, which is what is mentioned in the link.

    But you could try these steps as I indicated in an earlier post.

    Whats given on page 2 is absolutely what I'm asking you to do. Only that your iTunes account is new and some new users have failed in this method. However, you should try that for sure.
