The iPad’s pre-installed apps do many things, but they do not come close to unlocking the full potential of your iPad. Through Apple’s App Store, you can download a treasure trove of additional apps from Apple and from third-party developers, many of which are free or cost less than $5.
In this chapter, I introduce you to the App Store, and describe how to download, update, share, and delete apps.
Whatever your hobby, interest, or goal, there’s likely an app (or more likely, ten apps) related to it. Further, some programs on your regular computer likely have iPad counterparts. For example, the popular Dropbox file-sharing service has an iPad app, as does the voice-over-IP service Skype.
