Experiment with multi finger gestures.

Great. Just what I need is further password grief. I remember how the iCloud program on the computer wouldn't recognize my Apple ID ... until I signed in via the web browser. After which, it suddenly was OK with the same exact password it had rejected like five times before!

Anyway, thanks for the heads up on the password business! I'm dreading it after my initial experiences with both iCloud and getting the iPad connected with wifi, but at least it won't take me by surprise.

I'm still confused about how to add my Google stuff like contacts and have that sync with my Android devices (if that's possible), likewise for Chrome bookmarks. I don't see a Google contacts app in the app store. It would feel more useful as a tablet if I had access to all my regular stuff.

I also have a non-Google email that I need to access. But my Android mail program I love isn't in the app store and I'm not quite sure what to use for that yet. Guess I'll have to explore the App store. Except I'm kind of spent out and apps seem pricey.

Also have to find something like Metal, the app I use to avoid having any official Facebook apps on my device. It looks a lot like the Facebook app, you can access ALL your Facebook account stuff, but is actually a kind of wrapper for the Facebook website. Very light on resources.

Does the built-in mail client not work well enough for you?

@graycyn, google has a ton of apps in the app store, all free. Just do a search inside the store on google and they will turn up. Use the built in mail client for your non-google mail. I actually use that for all my mail including gmail.

It will work with non-apple accounts? I didn't know that, I guess I can try it out. I thought it was just for Apple emails. I need for it to be able to delete mails from my server when I delete them in the app, if it can do that, maybe it can work!

I could not find the Google Contacts app. All my other Google apps I have installed.

Do Apple even have a mail service?

It'll work with any POP3 or IMAP mail server, and will handle multiple email accounts. It works well.

Yes, the icloud mail accounts.

I have accounts with gmail, icloud, two different domain providers and my cable company. Apple mail handles all of them with no problems.

I'm going to set it up then!

Just finished got Libby signed into this morning. And my other cloud accounts that have more storage than Dropbox. I may need them when I start putting more image projects on the tablet!

I'm getting used to the gestures to pull up my control center, so things are going smoother. I may need a different keyboard, Gboard doesn't seem nearly as good at predictions on iPad as it does on my Android devices. May try Swiftkey.

No image editing happening today, I finished cleaning up 19 photos and I'm putting them in the ebook I'm making. Once I've backed them up, I'll take them out of iCloud to make room for the next project.

Does anyone know how to make the Files app show file extensions? I'm really frustrated with it, because I can't see whether an image file is an Affinity file (.afphoto) or a .tif file I've exported to go into Photoshop for a final look-see on my big monitor.
