    Hi all from Germany (stationed here). I'm new to iPad and the whole apps concept and I had a few questions.

    1. What are some of the best apps for the iPad?

    2. What does jailbreak mean and what are the benefits?

    Thanks in advance

    There are good threads on the App Store section of the forum but may be worth going to the actual App Store, if you go onto the featured tab there are links for starters building up their apps for the first time.

    Welcome to the site Voodookills31!
    1) best apps - depends on what you are interested in, find the app and read over the reviews really well before buying (a good indicator)
    2)jailbreak - doing things with your iPad Apple would rather you didn't (my opinion)
