Posted on July 11, 2010


This post is to update all the tips and tricks I have found in the course of using the iPAD. It’ll be continually be updated.

iPAD Manual :

Official manual : http://manuals.info.apple.com/en_US/iPad_User_Guide.pdf

This user manual is not included in the iPad packaging. This 154-page guide covers all the basics for using the iPad and understanding how it works.Because these manuals and guides are in PDF format, if you want to read them on your iPad, You can convert them to ePub format via a website called epub2go. After transforming the file to epub, just drop it onto your iTunes library and sync it to your iPad. You’ll be able to read the book using free iBooks application.

Easier way : Open iBook – search and download the following 2 titles ( Free )  :
– iPad User Guide
– iPAD Survival Guide

MacWorld free copy – an excellent guide  : http://www.macworld.com/article/150833/2010/04/ipad_starter_guide.html
First, download the file.  It’s in the iBooks ePub format. Double-click on it if your computer doesn’t automatically unzip the file.
Next, open iTunes on the computer you sync your iPad to. Drag the epub file into the library. Then connect your iPad and click on it in iTunes’s source list. You’ll want to click on the Books tab, and then make sure that books are being synced. You can choose to sync all books, or just select what books you want to sync. Either way, this book should now appear in that list.
