A relative came from US and gave my father a ipad. I tried to install free apps on it but failed to do so as it asks for verification of payment options and it asks for a valid credit card which i can't provide. As there are no apps he can only surf the internet on his ipad which is very limited. He wants some spreadsheets or office capabilities but as there is no app installed by default which can do that i had to try installing apps from the ipad market but haven't find any way to do that. Find an app named marked enabler but that is for rooted ipad only.
Is it possible to install at least free applications for ipad without jailbreaking/rooting ipad?
Is it possible to download and install free applications for ipad other than for the ipad market?
Is there any solution to installing free apps?
Note: I don't want to jailbreak the ipad as i don't want to risk that if something goes wrong my father won't to able to use his ipad and as he doesn't have a laptop won't be able to access the internet.
