    Hi all,
    I have a new Asus Transformer and aside from downloading games and apps (some of which I know what they do but have no idea how) I need help understanding the jargon that I've been reading here in AF so that I can use it to its fullest potential. It's really one of the coolest little gadgets I've ever owned but do not want to limit using it to playing games and watching movies (which I still have not figured out how to do).
    Is there a website/manual/tutorial for this darling thing that I can use and understand...and send me in the right direction?
    Thanks!:)

    I'm also new to Asus EeePad...You have made a good start by visiting this Android Forum, There are a few other Android Forums for you to learn from.

    Main problem I find is the Instruction Book tells you about thing, but not how to use them.

    There's no manual. As far as answering questions, you'll have ask something first. Check out the Tips and Tricks at the top of this forum. Also check out the XDA forum. It has a nice FAQ regarding the Transformer. Welcome to the community!

    Most of it is just playing around with it, learning the features. I had an advantage as I also use an Android phone at home, they're very similar.

    It depends on what you want to with it. I bought to it to, partly, read books, newspapers and magazines on. So I've got Kindle, PressReader and Zinio respectively to do that - which all work very well.

    I do a lot of web browsing on it, as do most other people, I suspect. I've recently downloaded the Dolphin for Tab browser, which seems to be very good.

    I'm also enjoying the pre-installed MyNet and SplashTop to remotely access my laptop.

    A quick search of google for rtf and android actually directed me back to androidforums for your answers. Coolreader was one app mentioned. Others had mentioned some other work arounds like loading to Google Docs which will change the file to a friendlier format. (Have to admit that this is the first time I've ever heard of that format myself.)
