Hello all from a new user in Columbus, Ohio. My name is Grant Davis and I just received a new 64G Ipad for my 46th birthday thanks to my girlfriend, mom, kids and sister. My girlfriend orchestrated this without my knowledge and I could not be happier.

I am an avid book reader and game player and thought this would be all I would use the Ipad for. However, I am finding myself more and more enamored with the capabilities of this thing and want to unlock its potential and mine as well. I am not completely technologically challenged but pretty darn close. So, I have sought out this forum as a way to help me with learning from the experts what I can and can't do with my little wonder.

Currently I only have a few games (Angry Birds is my favorite) and three book reading apps (Kindle, Ibooks and B&N ereader). I have been looking for a way to add my google calendar to the Ipad but have not been having much luck (HELP). I was able to get my contacts, pics, music from my Ipod Touch and books transferred. I have also added Pocket Money as I am terrible about keeping track of my check book. I am hoping this will entice me to be a better money manager.

So in closing, I am darned happy to be here and look forward to conversing with some of you to help me with my non-knowledge for using my Ipad to the fullest extent.

Grant Davis

Grant, welcome to the forum. It's a great place to learn about the new things for the iPad and get some friendly help as well. I unfortunately can't help with the google calendar sync as I use Microsoft Exchange (Offuce Outlook 2007) at work and for personal stuff. However, I did find this but don't know if it will work. Try this:

Welcome again and good luck.
