The iPad Apps Starter Kit (iOS 8.1 edition) will help you to pack your iPad with apps, games, e-books, photos, music, and movies, synchronise your data, text with iMessage, work with Siri, import pictures and launch slideshows, get organised with Reminders, download apps from the App Store, make video calls with FaceTime, find your way with Maps, work with the Calendar, protect your information, organise and search for your apps, and much more. Your iPad comes pre-installed (or bundled) with a large number of these apps, and most of them will become part of your daily iPad schedule.
