So you've got a gift card or promo code for your iPad and you would like to redeem it. Now what?

Well, it's actually quite easy. In fact, you don't even need to sync with iTunes on your computer if you're in a hurry.

Basically, just open the App Store from your iPad home screen and scroll down to the bottom of the App Store main screen. You'll see a "Redeem" button. Just tap on the button and you can enter the code you have.

If your code is for a particular app (I recently got a review code for Toy Story 2, for example), the app will download automatically after you enter the code.
