I can't find iTunes player on my iPad

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
When I go to iTunes all I get is the store, no player. On my PC if I download a audio file it automatically goes to iTunes and shows up on playlist. Why can't I see it on iPad.

Thanks, I am brand new at the iPad just got it Saturday.

That's what the Music and Videos apps are for.

Read the pamphlet included with your iPad or play around with it.

Sorry, but the only pamphlet I got was a warranty statement and how hot or cold my iPad could get. There was a card that showed the buttons and switches. None of these spoke about downloading audio files to iPad.

*blink*

Really? Apple's certainly shirking their responsibilities these days.

Though the idea IS for the GUI to be as self-explanatory as possible.

I have the same problem and have spent an age trying to source info.

I want to acknowledge that's it's good of you to volunteer your time, and to say I am really grateful for your answer.  I just spent 3 hours searching for it, and it did not occur to anyone else.

 

I have been using iTunes on a PC for 10 years, but have never used any other Apple product until I got an iPad 4 months ago.  I have used the iPad daily on the internet and listening to music, but have never used Safari, nor iTunes, until today when I bought a song.  When I didn't see the sidebar, I figured it was part of iTunes 11, and that there would be a button somewhere to reveal the sidebar.  It certainly did not occur to me that Apple separated iTunes for iPad into 2 entities.  Nor did it occur to me to look for a pre-installed music button, and had I seen it, it would not have occurred to me that it housed a music player.  There was no button for the music player I do use until I created one.

 

Your suggestion to check the manual was also helpful, and would have given me the answer I needed.  I had down-loaded it initially, then forgot about it.  But I don't use manuals for anything anymore - my TV, satellite, DVR, phone, or iPad - because it takes too long and is sometimes fruitless.  I find it's quicker to Google the question, and to use forums.

 

I concluded this was part of Apple's streamlining iTunes, and that if I wanted to see my library I was expected to do that on my PC.

FWIW, the iPad User Guide web app is the bottom bookmark in Safari, though you'll need to have some sort of a data connection to use it.  Same thing on the iPhone.
