iPad Tutorial: Add a contact to your iPad

We show you how to update your contacts on the iPad


Now that you’ve finally got your hands on a shiny new iPad, one of the first things you’re going to want to do is add a contact to the sumptuous Contacts app. It works in much the same way as the app on the iPhone.
It still has easy-to-find buttons and an intuitive natural feel, but rather than having the screen shunt to the right through each menu, you get nice pop-up boxes that make even more sense than the iPhone ever did. If you’re new to the whole touch concept then this process will be a revelation in simplicity. Not only can you add all the pertinent information you need, but there are cool little extras that make the system very slick and easy to use. The Contacts app will work in both landscape and horizontal mode, but we found that having all that screen real estate was suited better, in this instance, to the horizontal mode. The app is designed to look like an actual physical book and it gives the whole process a cool old-world feel. You can literally feel your way around all of the apps on the iPad, and the Contacts app is no different. Even if you make a mistake, you can go back and edit anything you like over and over again. You can also sync existing contacts from iTunes into the app.
