    No. There are no viruses capable of attacking the iPad.

    Hi Mfoskey.. - welcome to the forum! :) Agree completely w/ the others about the need for malware protection, i.e. NO! :thumbs:

    Second, NO concerning MS Office on your iPad; however, there are other options (and a lot of choices); for myself, I have Apple's iWork (Pages, Numbers, & Keynote which simulate MS Office's Word, Excel, & PowerPoint) - before adding more, you may want to provide some more information concerning your own needs on the iPad relative to MS Office - please respond!

    Hi Spiro - welcome to the forum! :)

    Your are 'highjacking' another thread w/ an unrelated question which will confuse the responses here & may not address your issue.

    Please start a new thread and better explain your issue concerning watching movies on your iPad - my suggestion!

    I am in college and I use Microsoft PowerPoint and word for assignments. I just need something like that besides word processer because that program is terrible.

    Well, not sure which program you are referring to above? But, I used MS Office for years, especially PowerPoint - as stated previously Apple's Pages & Keynote are two (of others to consider) that can be used for the same purpose; Pages can save to *.doc, *.docx, *.pdf, or its native file format; Keynote presentations can be used w/ PP (and vice versa); both are easy to use but certainly do not have the depth & complexity of the desktop equivalents. Also do some searching here, there are plenty of other 'office apps' to consider - good luck in your choices! :)
