I'm New iPad2 user.
Hi I am a new iPad 2 owner. I have never even owned an Apple product before. So, needless to say I am a real rookie. Trying to make it my own. Overwhelmed by all the apps. What is the best app for simple spreadsheet? I have a few files in Office, and want to view and use on my iPad. Excel files mostly.
Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!
Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.
Have fun and enjoy your iPad
