iPads do not have an external drive, so how do you back it up? The answer is the same way you back up your iPod, you sync it with iTunes on your PC or MAC computer. Or you can purchase space on MobileMe, and sync it to there.
iTunes also allows your iPad access to the iTunes store. If you are not familiar with iTunes, iTunes gives you the ability to download music, movies, TV shows, podcasts, rent movies, stream video and internet radio to your iPad. Do be aware that iTunes requires a credit card to set up your account.
When you open iTunes you will be see a list of top listings for the type of media you have chosen or were last looking at. There are different icons for each type of media (video, music, classes, etc.). You can also search each type of media.
The App Store is part of iTunes but uses a separate icon to open and is the place to download free and for pay applications known as apps the programs give you the ability to do even more with your iPad. An app is a computer program like a word processor, game, internet browser, book reader, or purchasing application.
So what apps should you have on your iPad/iPad2? That depends on what you are using your iPad for, but here is a short list of apps to check out.
