    You'll have to be a bit clearer. Are you asking about making phone calls from an iPad? If so, the iPad cannot make regular phone calls.

    I only know Talkatone which is location based.

    Then there's Viber, but contacts also need Viber

    Hopefully others will chime in or a search of the App Store should yield some.

    It's all I got. ;)

    I am a student,and carrying multiple huge text books.Was wondering,if theres a App that an iPad user can obtain to download or even buy text books from?these will allow an individual to Off load their bags full of books and use iPad as its lite and slim. These is training me,im sure will be more than happy to carry just iPad around but still studying!

    There is quite a choice out there mike. It all depends on the type of book for topics.

    Then if the book is out of copyright - say over 80 years old as a rule of thumb - you can obtain copies from providers such as Google Books and Project Gutenberg. These providers are accessible via Safari. Then there may be titles available as eBooks through the Apple store.

    You normally download books into the iBooks app where you can organise your downloads into folders of your own making.

    It is also possible to load the Kindle app into your iPad.

    HTH, and welcome to the forum.
