Hi there and welcome.

If you have a jail broken iPad you can hide apps but if it's stock then normal apps can't be hidden, you could try to disguise them by putting them in a folder or on a different home screen but that's about it I'm afraid.

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/

If you want to move it from the 'home' screen ( I presume you mean the first page), then hold down the app for a few seconds (until it starts 'jiggling' then press and drag to the side of the screen, which will open a second page. If you want to put it in a folder, do the same but overlay it on top of another app to create a folder. Both apps go in to the folder, and you can rename the folder to whatever you want. If you want the other app out of the folder, get the jiggle activated and drag it out. Folders can Be moved in the same way. Hope this helps.

If you just don't want the app anymore, jiggle it, then the option to delete appears. You can always redownload it when you want, by returning to the app store and finding it in your Purchased folder.

No real disadvantages, you can jailbreak without adding tweaks and apart from the Cydia App icon you wouldn't know it was any different.

Now there are a few apps which can tell if you are Jailbroken and not function but as I understand it they are few and far between.

If you don't like the jailbreak you can always restore your iPad to the way it was before and no one, not even Apple can tell that is been jailbroken.
