    I've had my first iPad2 for a few days, and it's driving me mad! When I try to order a new App, I tap on FREE and nothing happens. I click again, and again. . . and it changes to a green INSTALL. I click that, and nothing happens. I tap again, and again, and again . . . and it changes back to FREE. Having gone in circles like this for ages, eventually it may say DOWNLOADING. I'm asked to enter my password, which I do, correctly, and it says it's incorrect. Aaaaargh! Any suggestions, apart from extreme patience?

    This is not the usual experience. I would start by getting the apple ID and password straight. You can't buy anything if they are not correct. As for the non-responsive screen, you may need to reset the machine to address that. It is not normal. Do you have an apple store nearby? If so, I'd take it in.

    Thanks. I think I've sorted the password/ID problem, but is there some way to set the pressure used to tap the screen -- ?

    There's no way to adjust the pressure. Normal tapping should work fine.
