    I have several mp4 files on the ipad. I use a PC (no a Mac). I transferred (camcorder's native mp4 files) from the camcorder to a folder on the PC. I then added those files to the iTunes library (PC app). Then connected the iPad and from within iTunes I dragged those mp4 files into the iPad folder (left column). No conversion whatsover.

    All except one mp4 played fine on the iPad.

    Interesting ... I was able to drag and drop the files directly from the PC folder into the iPAD folder (i.e. without adding them to the iTunes library first) ... that did work but the thumbnails ended up being generic.

    There are quite a few things about the iMovie on the iPad that makes it a dissappointment (google for recent review from a couple who spent an entire day playing with the app).

    Check this out...works on iPad as well with OS 4.3, sure it cost $5 bucks, but is so very convenient:

    It's free if you download xCode 3 from Apple instead. ;)

    :( you need a mac to use the software. But that is cool. Can't wait till they release it in an upcoming update.

    what do theses comments refer to?

    if it's xCode4 i presume you can download straight to your ipad without any computer interference and use the multi touch jesters straight away?

    That is a funny one. My iPad 1 needs to be shacked quite hard for it to work, perhaps the iPad 2 can measure the shack more accurately.

    My Ipad (2)'s a Kindle, Too?!?

    My Ipad (2)'s a Kindle, Too?!?!!!!

    I just bought my Ipad on March 11th - my first -- and admittedly am getting a small case of app-itis. Anyway, somewhere I heard or read that Kindle/Amazon books can be read on the Ipad. In fact, there's a specific Kindle app FOR the Ipad. I downloaded it and voilà! I was able to download a free book (which just came out that I coincidentally saw today and was considering checking out at the library today).

    In any event, I downloaded the app; then used their store (Amazon I guess) which had the book (actually I saw on HotDealsDigest it was being offered for a free Kindle download). Everything worked.

    So ultimately, I have an Ipad, but I also have a Kindle (withIN the Ipad). I guess, wha- everybody knows this already? I'm totally jazzed!!! :)

    Organizing app icons

    You can move your app icons from one field to another on your home screen so they are where use want them most. Enter giggly mode, drag an icon DOWN INTO THE BOTTOM TRAY. Swipe into a new field of your home screen and giggle it out. The bottom tray holds 6 icons and they don't have to be APPLE app icons. I don't like the safari main page so I inserted mine onto them bottom tray and moved the safari icon out.

    It's also a Nook, and can use Stanza to read other formats as well.
