The ipad does not allow you down apps like you would on a desktop computer. The only apps you can run officially are the ones available on the app store that can be accessed on the ipad or in itunes through the itunes store tab. You should not that adobe flash is not available for the ipad as well.
Apple has made their devices so that viruses and worms can't infect them. Part of this protection is done by blocking users from downloading things in Safari.
If you want to download music and other things, go to the app store and get Download Manager. There is a free version that will allow you to download up to 10 files at once. Downloaded songs WON'T be available in the iPod app but you can go into the Download Manager app and listen just the same.
Go into Cydia and add the following source:
Now, search Safari Download Manager and tap the one that is NOT Blue! Install, respring, and thats it!
Downloads save to var/mobile/Documents so you may need to use iFile to place them where you want them.
The authorised way of downloading apps on the ipad is via the app store. Go to the app store and find the apps using the search facillity that you are trying to download via safari and they will instal properly. You must remember that safari is not really a fully functional browser as it would be on a desktop machine. You will not be able to download things like flash games or use flash enhanced websites. Hope this helps.
You have to download an app for documents like Open Office to download and open on your iPad. Safari won't let you download certain files from the internet. Apps like Downloads HD are one of those apps that lets you download almost anything from your iPad and open it from within the app or from another app that can open that file you downloaded.
I don't know about Yahoo messenger, but you can certainly download Skype onto your iPad. Search for 'Skype' in the App Store, and you'll be able to download it free. There is no iPad specific version of Skype, but the iPhone one runs and works fine.
As for Yahoo messenger - do the same thing, run a search in the App Store to see if you can get it for iPad. If not, see if you can do it via the web - Safari on iPad is a very capable browser, much more so than Internet Explorer, at least.
Hope that helps!
.exe files are Microsoft Windows Executable files, that can only run on Microsoft Windows. They cannot be run on the iPad, so Safari doesn't download them.
The place to get apps for the iPad is the App Store - have a search, there'll probably be something that can do what you need. Out of interest, what are you trying to do? I may be able to suggest an app.
Hope that helped!
Microsoft Silverlight is a plugin that only works on some desktop browsers. It is never going to be supported in Safari, because it is rapidly becoming outdated - content providers should be using more modern, efficient and faster technologies. Depending on what you are trying to do, there may be a native way of doing it - search for it in the App Store.
You cannot download IE because Microsoft do not make IE for the iPad. You cannot run MS Windows programs (.exe files) on the iPad. If you don't want to use Safari to browse the web, just search 'browser' in the App Store, and you'll find soma alternatives.
Just remember: The App Store is the only place you can get apps for your iPad!
Hope that helped!
