    Unless you Jailbreak (unlock) your device you won't be able to load apps that don't come thru iTunes . At least, that is my understanding. I haven't done it...no reason except that I'm perfectly satisfied the way I am. Someone with lots more knowledge than I will have to advise you. Good luck!

    There's lots of videos on YouTube that explain how to jail break, it's all safe as far as I am aware, just make sure you back up your iPad.

    Lol the great majority find the iPad very useful without having to jailbreak it.

    That said there is a section of these forums devoted to jailbreaking so have a good read before you start.
