My name is Allan and I have just bought a new iPad 3. I know a little about windows computers and am a member of the local senior net group in Auckland, new zealand. I have an old power pc Mac that I play around with sometimes but it is no good for my iPad.

I need a lot of help with this new tablet. It is certainly not the same as a pc or a Mac.

I have a laptop running windows 7 which is a big enough mystery so I hope I am not taking on too much.

A technician told me a while ago that I would not need iTunes to download my music from my pc and that I would be able to use the cloud or dropbox. Is this right?

Hi there Allan and welcome.

Whilst there are probably ways to download music without iTunes on your PC, if you have iTunes on your PC then you can share the music in it with your iPad without a physical connection. So for me having iTunes is a must because despite all the negative comments, it just works.

There is lots of good advice and info on here plus plenty of members all too willing to help with any problems.

Remember, search is your friend. If you can't find the answer you need and you post a question then give as much info as you can to help members help you i.e. iPad 1 or 2, iOS version and name of app if the problem is with a specific app........and please don't forget to read the rules http://www.ipadforums.net/forum-rules-help-info/2119-forum-rules-everybody-please-read.html

These are the hacking section rules for all you jail breakers (and would be jail breakers) http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-hacking/2892-hacking-section-rules-please-read.html

We also have an app for this forum. The link to download the app is: Discussion Forum for iPad Users for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad on the iTunes App Store

You can download the manual for your iPad here http://support.apple.com/manuals/ and in iBooks search for "iPad user guide for" and you will find free comprehensive manuals for both iOS 4 and 5.

If you have other Apple products or are interested in other Apple kit then why not join our sister forum too at http://www.appleforums.net/

Thank you for all your information. That link for creating posts is the one I needed. I could not find where to post a question but I think it was because I was not going to a particular thread. It takes a while but I will learn. I'll be back.

Allan
