iPAD: The day to day ACTIVITIES or SETTING for an iPAD

Hi,
Today, I just got my mini iPad.

I am used to with Microsoft Windows; it seems there quite big differences with Apple.

My questions: What kinds of ACTIVITIES or SETTING that I should know related to this iPad for DAY to DAY basis.

Please list them.

Thanks,
tjie

That is a very large question because there are a lot of apps that can help you.

What I do is keep my Calendar, Contacts, Notes and Tasks in Outlook in Windows and then sync this information to my iPhone (iPad) with iTunes. This keeps me on top of my activities.

But there are other ways as well. The above is not the only way. So take a look at other Apps in the iTunes App Store.

There are hundreds of Apps for iPad.

In Settings, you should find the Wi-Fi connection setting and it is fairly simple to set up Wi-Fi.

Now I also have Cellular on my iPhone which you may not have. Given that:

I have Local Transit Schedules, Stock Market indices, Local news, Dropbox with my Documents, some Games and lots of other things.

See what is there, go to iTunes Apps and look also for things that interest you.

But get Wi-Fi set up first. You should find this in settings.
