    Hi everyone, I have several questions.

    1) I've been emailing powerpoint/word files to my email to open them on my ipad 2. I've read that you can sync files using itunes but I don't know how to do it. Do I need an app for it? Where will the documents be stored on my ipad?

    2) In order to edit documents, I would need to download an app right? Any recommendations?

    3) Also, some people have told me that if you buy the camera connection kit, you can use it to plug your usb in and access the files on it. Is that true?

    THX!!! :)

    1) To sync files (for apps) to through iTunes you have to connect your iPad to the computer, select it in iTunes, and go to the Apps page. The File Share area is at the bottom. Files will transfer when added or removed from this section without a need to sync. The files moved this way will be in the app they were moved from/to.

    2) The most commonly recommended apps are the iWorks suite (Pages, Numbers, Keynote), Documents to Go, and QuickOffice HD. The first offers the most flexibility and ease of use (admittedly an opinion) in creating documents. The second and third offer better compatibly with Office files.

    3) The camera connection kit can only be used to move document files on and off the iPad if you jailbreak. Otherwise it is for importing movies and pictures from compatible cameras. It will also allow the use of a USB keyboard and a few other things.

    I thought Apple kill this feature by reducing the power output. I have never since I read this, but I am JB does this mean this feature is available to me now?
