I recently bought a IPad. I'm hopping to use it with my kinder report card that uses drop-down list to put into cells (numbers app). I was wondering if I bought a Mac with IWorks and used the drop-down format in numbers. Than e-mailed the file and retreived it on my IPad if it would work???. I realy like the IPad's multi-touch screen. I have a tablet PC that already uses the Excel version with drop-down list and it works great. I have to use a stylus instead of touch. My Excel card uses a assesment sheet that teachers fill out on each student and automaticly fill in the report card for them using calulation formulas. All the teacher has to do is type in comments. Last year the dist. wanted teachers to fill out another paper sheet that basicly had the same info. So made the assesment records fill this out also. If the teachers didn't have enough stress during report card time. Its amazing in this age how much duplication we do. I beleive the IPad if this will work will do the trick and save lots of time. Teachers can do the assessment anywhere they choose without being tied to a computer or paper doc.
If any one would like to do me a favor and e-mail me a numbers file with a drop-down list. I could test it out on my IPad. I would aperciate it!!!
