Like the iPhone and iPod touch, the iPad can download and use "Apps," or small applications. These are games, access to Facebook and Twitter, or even productivity software like word processing and image manipulation.

One of the main uses of the iPad is to play back movies and TV shows downloaded from the iTunes store.
