    I have an iPad, but I am struggling to understand why.

    Great as a photo viewer. Fine for accesing iTunes. Mediocre as internet brower. Pretty poor for email and ebooks (unless bought from iTunes).

    And actually quite difficult to use. I need a crib sheet taped to the back for (e.g.) our to kill the Mail app when it crashes (often) - info that I only obtained from forums like this.

    Am i missing something?

    Welcome to the forums. IPad has hidden potential. You will love it more and more.

    Suggestion, search the Apple site for iPad manual. Keep a bookmarked link. Bookmarks are accessed through Safari :)

    Hi ghaigh.

    I note you are interested in eBooks. You can get a free version of Kindle via the apps store. Free or paid books are readily available via the "usual suspects". Enjoy ;)

    Adding to Richard's point about Kindle, it's a great accessory to supplement iBooks in the event you can't find a certain title.
    Looking at my library - about 40% of my saved book content is from Kindle.

    I use my iPad to play games with my GF. I'm also using Evernote to take notes (man it's super cool app, also have it for my laptop). But mostly I use iPad to read. Pulse for news, iBooks, Kindle & PDF Max for ebooks.

    I'll use it for e mail, surfing the web, watch movies. I've had it for three days (a birthday present) and at the moment I'm terrified of it. I'm reading through an Idiots Guide to iPads and an iPads for seniors guide. As a total techno-phobe I'm finding it challenging but am looking forward to using it confidently in the, hopefully, not too distant future.
