iPad Apps

Apple and iOS

Apple’s walled garden App Store, where applications are fully vetted before being made available to customers, has prevented widespread malware infection of iOS users. As a centralized point of distribution, the App Store provides users with confidence that the apps they download have been tested and validated by Apple.

iPad Apps
The iPad comes preloaded with only a very basic applications (apps). We recommend you purchase more apps to enhance the use of the iPad.

Purchase of Apps
To purchase apps, we recommend crediting your itunes account using iTunes gift cards. These are available from most big retail chains, including Woolworths, Coles, Big W, K-Mart Target etc. You can also use a Credit Card in iTunes. However, to keep a track of how much your child might spend, we recommend the use of the Gift Cards.
