    thanks for the list. The first time i synced my new ipad, i lost all my apps that I had downloaded. ??

    and I am not able to figure out how to get my power point onto my ipad so I can run it in my new keynote app. ??

    thanks for any help you might have to offer.

    The question about "Can a camera be used with it" was not answered. I haven't tried it as yet - but you would probably need a USB camera app for that - which I don't know if there are any.
