Now it's time to go beyond upsizing all your iPhone apps and get to the nitty-gritty of iPad awesomeness. Check out our list of tips and tricks that'll have you wowing your friends and working more efficiently with your new device.
Check your App updates
If you have an iPod touch or iPhone, check for app updates with iTunes. There's a good chance some of your apps are ready to to be updated for the iPad.
Where are My iPad Only Apps?
iTunes pulls a cruel trick by putting your iPad only apps at the bottom of your apps list. Just scroll on down to the bottom. There they are.
You can also put iTunes in list view to scroll quickly through your apps and organize by Kind. Also, you can transfer apps to ipad from you PC/Mac is avoidable
You're Not Trapped in the iBookstore
There are gazillions of public domain books in the ePub format on the web. Some of those free books are available in the iBookstore for free, but not all. All of them should work with your iPad and show up in iBooks.
Here are a few places to get books:
Once you've downloaded those books, just drop them into iTunes and sync them to your iPad.
Don't forget, you can also use the Kindle App for iPad.
Just because you don't have a phone in the iPad doesn't mean you can't send SMS to friends. There are tons of free sms apps in the App Store you can try out. Also, you can send SMS with AIM. Just fire up AIM and to send a text message to a friend, just send the message to your friend's phone number with +1 at the beginning.
My Old iPod/iPhone Dock Stuff
Bad news, we couldn't the iPad to work with some of our old iPod /iPhone dock stuff. Obviously, it wouldn't fit in some, but in others it just gave us a warning that the product wasn't made for the iPad. We even tried hooking it up to our car stereo via the dock connection. Maybe a software update will allow us to dock in the future.
Copy and Paste Photos Instead of Sharing
You can only email five pictures from the Photo app using the Email button. You can copy far more and paste them into the Mail app. Need to send 15 pictures? Copy and paste them from the Photo app into a Mail document. Just transfer photos to ipad and have a try.
Create Your Own Wallpaper
iPad wallpaper images should be 1024x768, or you can just use this super rad one. To assign your image to your home screen background or lock screen, launch the Photo app.
Tap to enlarge the image you want to use. Tap on the share button. Tap Use as Wallpaper. Resize the image to your liking and tap Set Lock Screen, Set Home Screen or Set Both.
Safari Quick Scroll

Tap Home to Get Home
Press the Home button while on navigating your Home screens to return to the main Home screen. Tap it again to get to the search page.
Rearrange Your Search Results
When doing a global search on the iPad, the default results display is to put contacts first. If you'd rather have apps or songs or even podcasts first, you can adjust the results by navigating to Settings>General>Home>Search Results. Tap and hold on the three light grey bars to the right of an item, then drag it up and down to suit your needs.

6:08 AM - Jacket for iPad 2 Review
Incase Magazine Jacket for iPad 2
When the iPad 2 first came out there weren't many available cases for owners to buy because Apple had kept information about its dimensions and specs under tight control to ensure the hype didn't die down. At the time of the iPad 2 debut, only the Apple Smart Cover was available to offer some degree of protection of the tablet. In the weeks that followed the release of the iPad 2, I'm sure Apple made a few cool million dollars just from Smart Cover sales alone.
However, iPad 2 owners now have many choices to protect their beloved Apple tablets. And the jacket can helps you enjoying songs, movies well, you just need to upload movies to ipad 2, transfer pictures to ipad. And, to be fair, Apple's iPad 2 Smart Cover doesn't include a portrait stand.
The Incase Magazine Jacket offers the iPad 2 protection through hybrid elements. It has a front flap similar to the Smart Cover, without the magnets. It has a hard back to encase the iPad 2 with full exposure on the top and bottom of the tablet (easy access to the power button, headphone jack, and sync port). The speaker and the volume and mute buttons are exposed on the side and bottom corner.
The back case also has an elastic band which can be used to keep the front flap securely covered as needed. The back also has two plastic notches to catch the flap in order to turn the Magazine Jacket into a stand for better viewing angles.
Similar to the Smart Cover, the front flap can be manipulated to tilt the iPad 2 into a comfortable typing position.
I've been using the Incase Magazine Jacket for several weeks now and found it a good compromise between design, style, and practicality. It's not a beautiful or stylish case, but has the professional folio appearance. It more than adequately does the job of protecting the iPad 2, as well as offer the flexibility of multiple viewing angles.
If the front flap had microfiber lining to buff the screen when closed and a magnet to enable the instant-on feature - both features of the Smart Cover - then it would be a great case for $50.
iPad Sleeves & Bags - Incase Book Jacket for iPad 2
iPad 2 version of Incase's popular Convertible Book Jacket. Complete protection, and allows for multiple viewing angles. Suitable for iPad 2.
Don't let the new shorter name fool you. We've redesigned our famous Convertible Book Jacket for Apple's iPad 2. Now dubbed simply the Book Jacket, it gives your iPad 2 complete protection and enhanced functionality. The new Book Jacket opens to convert into a stand with three viewing positions and has a low-profile working angle that's perfect for comfortable typing. A durable elastic band secures it closed for easy carrying. We've also added a precision-cut camera hole so it's a snap to take pictures with your iPad 2 still safely protected.
* Travel case opens to function as a stand
* Three viewing angles and one working angle
* Complete iPad 2 protection
* Suede lining for better protection
* Secure elastic band closure
* Camera lens cutout and direct access to all iPad 2 features

8:44 AM - An answer to backup ipad
iPad is the most popular gadget in all over the world. You can
play or watch HD movie, capture HD Video, Play high graphics game
etc. It has also very large storage capacity in which you can
stores thousands of songs, pictures, videos, games and many more
information. In this situation it becomes necessary to keep a
backup of iPad in MAC or Windows.
Is it necessary to backup/sync the iPad to iTunes?
The short iPad backup story is that Apple wants you to make your iPad backups through iTunes. And as far as I can tell, this is currently the only way to make an iPad backup.
To make an iTunes iPad backup, just follow these steps:
1.Connect your iPad to your computer,
2.Select your iPad device in iTunes, and then
3.Choose the 'Sync' option to make a backup.
You can also right-click your iPad under the itunes Devices section, and select the "Make a Backup" option from the popup menu. If you want to copy files to ipad without itunes and transfer apps to ipad, follow this guide.
That's the short story to making an iPad backup, but there's much more to learn about making iPad backups, and the iPad restore process.
Where are iPad backup files stored on my Windows computer?
The folder where your backup data is stored changes depending on the computer's operating system. Since iTunes only keeps one backup per device, you should ensure the backup folder is included in your periodic data-backup routine.
iTunes places the backup files in the following places:
•Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup/
•Windows XP: Documents and Settings(username)Application DataApple ComputerMobileSyncBackup
•Windows Vista: Users(username)AppDataRoamingApple ComputerMobileSyncBackup
How to Restore Apple iPad Backup and delete a backup?
To restore information from a backup, use one of the following methods after connecting your iPad to the computer with which you normally sync:
•In iTunes, select the device, then select the Summary tab and click Restore (this deletes all data on iPad and restores to factory settings). When prompted by iTunes, select the option to restore your settings.
•Right-click (or Control-click) the device, and choose Restore from Backup.
If you want to delete a backup created by iTunes, follow these steps in iTunes:
1. Open iTunes Preferences:
Windows: Choose Edit > Preferences.
Mac: Choose iTunes > Preferences.
2. Click Devices (iPad does not need to be connected).
3. iTunes will show the serial number and IMEI (iPad 3G only) of the backed up iPad when you position your mouse pointer over a backup. Use this to locate the backup for the iPad you want to delete. Select the backup you want to remove and click Delete Backup.
4. Confirm you wish to remove the selected backup by clicking Delete Backup.
5. Click OK to close the iTunes Preferences Window.
Every aspect should be considered. Do I make everything clear?
So the iPad 2 is been launched now and will be available for sale soon. If you own iPad and are too excited by the launch of iPad 2, go on reading the difference between iPad and iPad 2, from which you can find the details.

Only a slight different in the design, iPad 2 has angled edges. The edges are tapered to reduce weight.
