    Firstly thank you for accepting my registration.

    I'm Judith ( Jud ) and I live in the UK. At the age of 56 I'm not shy at buying new toys. Love my laptop and decided I would like to get an Apple iPad. It arrived today and so I'm here to have a good look around..see what I can learn..how to connect to Wi Fi..etc. so glad there are forums like this around, especially as this computing is new to me.

    Thank you for reading.

    Kind Regards

    Jud:)

    Hi there Jud and welcome.

    I'm also from the UK, we have quite a big contingent here from Blighty (we may even plant a flag and stake our claim on the forums!).

    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 http://www.ipadforums.net/forum-rules-help-info/2119-forum-rules-everybody-please-read.html

    These are the hacking section rules for all you jail breakers (and would be jail breakers) http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-hacking/2892-hacking-section-rules-please-read.html

    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 and a great tutorial/guide for using the IPF App here http://www.ipadforums.net/new-membe...sistance/107524-ipad-forums-app-tutorial.html

    You can download the manual for your iPad here http://help.apple.com/ipad/6/ and here http://support.apple.com/manuals/ 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 http://www.appleforums.net/ and for iPhone users, come and join in the discussion over at http://www.iphoneforums.net
