The following step-by-step guide shows you how to do it straight on your i Pad. On the right hand side, you will see all the top Free i Pad Apps. In our example, we have chosen the app from The Star, Malaysia.
This is what the verification from Apple looks like. Enter your Apple ID (which is your email address) and the password you chose earlier. Once the verification is successful, tap on “Return to the Store”. Locate the free app you wanted earlier and tap on “FREE” and “INSTALL APP”. You will be returned to the Home Screen and the new app icon should appear.
A status bar below it will indicate the process until it is done downloading and installing.
You can continue doing other things on your i Pad while this is going on.
One of the first things you should do after getting your i Pad is to create an Apple ID.
You can then use the Apple ID to start downloading apps/games from the App Store or get music/video from i Tunes.
While most of the stuff in the Malaysia version of App Store and i Tunes require you to purchase with a credit card before downloading, there are tons more quality content that are free such as games, books, movie trailers and so on.
The question is though, how do you create an Apple ID if you do not have a credit card?
If you do not see “None” as an option, double check that you chose a FREE app in Step 3 and not a Paid app.
If that still doesn’t work, you’ll have to try doing this whole registration process in i Tunes on a computer.
We have posted up an alternative tutorial here: “Create New Apple ID Without a Credit Card [Using i Tunes]“. You just have to check your email and verify your account from there. You have successfully created an Apple ID without a credit card.
Go back to the Home Screen and open “Safari” to browse to your email service. Let’s go a bit further from here and see what downloading+installing an app looks like.
