How can I search my iPad for music / apps / files with Spotlight?

Spotlight makes it possible to search the contents of your iPad. To access Spotlight, swipe to the right or press the home button when on the first home screen.

You can see a small magnifying glass icon at the bottom of the home screen above the app dock. Another way to jump to Spotlight search is to touch the magnifying glass when on the first home screen.

A text box will appear that says "Search iPad." To find an app, song, artist, book, email or other content on your iPad enter a search term.
