    Are you sure you're in the right forum? There's no Google play store on an iPad.

    On your home screen, tap the AppStore icon.

    image-3273023541.jpgThen enter the name of the app you want in the search box, then tap the search key on your keyboard, your app should show up onscreen.

    Making a wild guess:

    The App Store can be hidden (turned off) in Settings > General > Restrictions. If Restrictions are set you'll need the 4 digit passcode that was used. When you set Restrictions make sure you do not forget the passcode. Like all good security codes, it's difficult to recover from when lost.
