    Greetings and happy holidays to all. I was blessed(?) with an Ipad 16GB wifi cellular for Christmas. I'm not doing well at all finding and loading various aps and trying to find out (for instance) how would/can you delete a map program and replace it with Google maps. So I expect I'll be a regular vistor here for the next year or so. Be gentle with me as I'm a non techie geezer.;)

    Hi there and welcome.

    If you want to delete an App that you have downloaded all you need to do is touch and hold any App icon, then touch the Red Cross on the app that you want to delete. To stop the icons jiggling just tap the Home button.

    There is lots of good advice and info on here plus plenty of members all too willing to help with any problems.

    Remember, search is your friend. If you can't find the answer you need and you post a question then give as much info as you can to help members help you i.e. iPad 1 or 2, etc. and iOS version and name of app if the problem is with a specific app........and please don't forget to read the forum rules

    These are the hacking section rules for all you jail breakers (and would be jail breakers)

    We also have an app for this forum. The link to download the app is: Discussion Forum for iPad Users for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad on the iTunes App Store

    You can download the manual for your iPad here and here and in iBooks search for "iPad user guide for" and you will find free comprehensive manuals for iOS 4, 5, 6, etc.

    If you have other Apple products or are interested in other Apple kit then why not join our sister forum too at and for iPhone users, come and join in the discussion over at
