Welcome snazzy5168! I don't know how brilliant this family is, but it is friendly.

What kind of question? Just look at the different headings in the forum and take your best guess. This is a real nice group and no one will jump on you for posting in the wrong place. They may suggest a better place, but no one will be mean.

Hi Snazzy. I'm sorry that I didn't get back here yesterday, but am glad that you figured it out. I'm just as happy that it doesn't have a camera because the iPhone form factor is better for that. There are some programs that will let you use your iPhone camera with your iPad but I haven't tried any yet. If you try that be sure to let us know!

Dear Snazzy you are so cool

I have no doubt that if you can figure out the iPhone then you can figure out the iPad (perhaps with a little help but who doesn't need that)

Keepup the good work

AOL offers their chat app for the iPhone and iPad for free. Here's a link to the iPad version:

AIM for iPad

Enjoy,

Abrennen..you're sweet for that..thanks....believe it or not..even when one is over 60...they do function...lol...I still in retirement consult to business...and by a quirk, ended up with another business based on the book I wrote...You better believe one needs iphones and ipads in this lifetime lol....
I'm struggling a bit with documents on ipad...but did figure out..if one reads instructions, one usually solves the problem..lol...
Later today I'm going to sit with ipad and study..and jot down my 'how to's'....and get back to y'all later...
Have an ipad-perfect day...
