iPad: How to Shop with the iTunes App

The iTunes application lets you use your iPad to download, buy, or rent just about anything you can download, buy, or rent with the iTunes application on your Mac or PC, including music, audiobooks, podcasts, and videos. And, if you’re fortunate enough to have an iTunes gift card or gift certificate in hand, you can redeem it directly from your iPad.

If you want to do any of that, however, you must first sign in to your iTunes Store account. Follow these steps:

  1. Tap the Settings icon on the Home screen.

  2. Tap Store in the list of settings.

  3. Tap Sign In.

  4. Type your username and password.

Or, in the unlikely event that you don’t have an iTunes Store account already, follow these steps:

  1. Tap the Settings icon on the Home screen.

  2. Tap Store in the list of settings.

  3. Tap Create New Account.

  4. Follow the onscreen instructions.

After the iTunes Store knows who you are (and, more importantly, knows your credit card number), tap the iTunes icon on your Home screen (or the Store button in the Music app) and shop until you drop. It works almost exactly the same as the iTunes App Store.
