    Yes, install iTunes and then install napster.

    any MP3's you purchase on napster should automatically get added to your iTunes library. To add the music to your iPad you would then have to just open iTunes and click the sync button to transfer the songs to the ipad.

    you can go to itunes.com right now and download it from apple and install it on your computer.

    When new songs are downloaded in napster they should automaticaly get added into iTunes as well. If for any reason a song doesnt show up in iTunes you can simply just drag the MP3 File into iTunes.

    Once you plug your iPad into your computer a new option will show in iTunes that shows your iPad. When you click your iPad in iTunes it will have a sync button that will take all the music on itunes and transfer it to the iPad.

    Napster. Wow. The golden age of digital free music downloads in the 90's. Brings back great memories.

    You have to install Napster on your computer, NOT your iPad! Download to your heart's content, but you may have to remember where your music is beings saved. Open iTunes and you can go to Files then select the option to Add file to library... or Add folder to library... The next time you sync your iPad, those items will be added to your iPad.

    The same basic principle applies if you buy music from Amazon or places like LimeWire.

    Clear as mud, eh?

    If you can download it on your iPad, you can run it on your iPad but it may not necessarily by an "HD" version made specifically for the iPad. The biggest difference is the image size on the screen. An iPod Touch/iPhone app will only be as big as the screen on an iPod, but there is a 2X button in the lower right corner of the screen that will enlarge the image to fill the screen on your iPad. Since it may be a little fuzzy, you can change it back to the normal smaller size by hitting the button that will change to 1X.

    Good luck!
