For Seniors: Add Friends to iPad’s Game Center

Game Center is a one-stop gaming app for iPad 2. Game Center on iPad provides a place where you can add your gaming friends and play games with them online. If you want to play Game Center games with others who have an Apple ID and an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, add them as friends so that you can invite them to play.

  1. From the Game Center Home screen, tap the Friends button at the bottom of the screen.

    The Friends page appears.

  2. On the Friends page, tap Add Friends.

    An e-mail message appears.

  3. Enter an e-mail address in the To field and edit the invitation, if you like.

  4. Tap the Send button.

    A confirmation message tells you that your invitation has been sent. Tap OK. After your friend accepts your invitation, her name is listed on the Friends screen.

You will probably also receive requests from friends who know you’re on Game Center. When you get these e-mail invitations, be sure that you know the person sending it before you accept it — especially if you’ve allowed e-mail access in your account settings — or else you could be putting a stranger in communication with you.
