For example, you can decide whether or not to accept cookies in Safari, synchronize your calendar with your email account, choose which messages (notifications) to display, set up home sharing in iTunes and set volume controls for the Music app. Apart from the tips this book provides for the standard apps on your iPad, we also give tips for apps that can be purchased or downloaded for free in the App Store. Although this is but a small selection of relevant apps, some of them may really be of value to you. The online store contains so many apps. We highly recommend you visit the store regularly and stay on the lookout for information about other useful apps in blog articles, newspapers or magazines.
