    “create an iTunes account”!
    Charles, I thought we hated iTunes and didn’t want to have it on our computers. Are we going forward with the iPad/iTunes use in the classroom or not? Bill

      Bill, Creating an iTunes account isn’t the same as installing iTunes on a computer. You are required to have an iTunes account in order to install any apps on your iPad.
      Although we don’t hate the iTunes application we dislike what it does to our computers and applications, we’ve had numerous issues with the application including Outlook hangs caused by an iTunes add in. Because these issues greatly affect computer performance and reliability we cannot support iTunes installations as our number one priority is to ensure that your computer is fully functional and doesn’t interfere with your work.
