    Hi all,
    I've been issued with an iPad at work for testing and evaluation purposes and I won't lie, I am not a user of functionally clumsy fashion accessories bearing half eaten apple logos by choice.
    On opening the box, I can only find two small multi-lingual booklets continaing CYA notes and disclaimers about EU and FCC compliance plus two half eaten fruit stickers; no instruciton manuals issued and since this is a test, no IT help desk support; thus I fear I shall need all the help I can get to find my way though the myriad of counter intuitive menus and pointless 'features' on the iPad and hopefully can find some help easing the pain via this forum.
    Despite being disdainful of my newly issued accessory, I shall be as courteous in asking for, and most grateful in receiving, whatever helpful advice possible while this test continues. Hopefully my questions aren't completely gadget illiterate :)
    To answer some of the background questions from johnny Apple, I don't have too many gadgets, I use an android bat-fone (only to make calls and occassionally read e-mail, but I admit a preferrence for pre-'smart' Nokia and Ericcson telephones) and use a laptop (Intel with Win7) for email, searching the inter-web for information, wasting time on YouTube, storing and viewing digital photographs and everything else an iPad claims to do.
    The next gadget I aim to procure is a GoPro camera with a car and helmet mounting kit in order to produce YouTube friendly videos.

    Hello! I joined today. Thank you for the welcome message.
    Does anyone else find that, if left in monthly mode, the iPad Calendar lags a day behind with its blue TODAY label? Powering iPad down or switching to a different calendar view and then back corrects it temporarily - until the next day? Best wishes.

    Hello again. I only joined yesterday and I think I posted my first question in the wrong place, without introducing myself. I am sorry! Thank you for the welcome.
    I have had my iPad since last December and could not live without it. I am retired and rely on my iPad, with occasional resort to library computers.
    I look forward to be being a Member of the forum.

    Hello Everyone

    I bought my iPad 3 a few months ago and thus far have been very happy with it. I mainly use it for business purposes but after the wife got a hold of it, she wants to change everything we own over to apple. It looks like we will each be getting an iPhone 5 in the fall thanks to the simplicity of the iPad.

    I have a ton of questions on how to better use my iPad and will be searching for answers here as well as talking with the people at my Apple Store.

    Hi Ginnytogs here, I have had Apple since 2008. I did a lot of travelling and wanted to make movies of my trips so, of course, the iMac was the best way to go. While at work I was using IBM, but now I am retired I just love my Apple products. From my iMac I converted to an iPhone and just love it, I would never have anything else. My daughter and her partner have and iPad each and I just love to have a play, I think I am addicted!
    Anyway another holiday was planned and I thought an iPad would be just ideal for transferring my photos while travelling. I have the 64GB WiFi only as I use my iPhone for connect to the internet. It worked like a treat, I bought the Camera Kit and used both the USB and the SD Card device without a hitch. My sister is also now using the Camera Kit on her iPad and she is learning new stuff every day.

    I hope to learn a few tips by joining this forum, and maybe can help someone else with my knowledge.

    Hi I am a relatively new owner of an iPhone 4s and an iPad 2. Still learning tips and tricks for both. My newest favorite trick is using the 4 finger swipe on the iPad to move between apps. This is AWESOME! Especially when looking at emails and putting dates on the calendar!
