    Talking Hi from Sandhurst, UK

    Hi. I recently bought an iPad for no good reason except that I like trying new technology.
    It joins desktop, laptop, HTC Desire HD, Kindle etc as my extending communication suite

    Main reason I got it was that The Daily Telegraph give a free download of the paper, including crossword, to subscribers.

    It turns out to be a great device - I now have the family tree installed to join Facebook, twitter,etc.

    joined the Forum because I would like to be able to handle Excel 2010 files and Google pointed me here. (maybe word too)

    Bob

    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

    One of our members carried out a survey of Office apps for his company; you can see his conclusions in this thread...

    Thanks, TIM. It seems that none of them quite do even all the basics

    Ah well, no doubt

    Useful study though.

    No - they're definitely 'stripped down' versions of their desktop counterparts. There are workarounds for some of the issues - but, for sure, there are some insuperable problems.....
