    Hi,

    I use my Ipad for study, work and play. An iPad2, 32GB with 3G - really happy with my purchase except for the below.

    I brought myself an early Christmas present - thought I had done all the research but found out that I cant use a memory stick to move my files around (apart from photos). And its not that user friendly to move files around when you have been used to the windows environment - first time user in the apple environment. A little disappointed with that outcome as I constantly have files to move around. I am sure there are some work around's that I haven't discovered yet. Hopefully this site will help me put things to work they way I would like them.

    Dont get me wrong I love my iPad, just didnt look into file transfer options and operating system thoroughly enough. I dont have an Iphone yet, or Ipod etc the budget cant quite stretch that far.

    Looking forward to investigating business software, study helps and non moving games - yep get motion sickness even on a screen. Currently studying in the field of Emergency Management / Planning / Risk Assessments etc. So any app suggestions that are useful in this field are welcomed.

    I hope that one day I can contribute back to other new members once I get a handle on things.

    Cheers!
