    I'm a new (to Ipad) user and can't seem to find an easy to use print shop program for creating text/graphics flyers. It's a very old program, but I've had the best results for years using PrInt Shop Ensemble III by Broderbund on my PC. It allows me to use separate text and graphics boxes which can be moved around easily but every word program I've found for the IPad are nowhere near as easy or useful. Is there anything out there like my Print Shop?

    I guess there isn't. It's back to the PC for that type of work.

    Pages can do straightforward documents with text boxes and graphics - drag & drop to move around and resize; how sophisticated does it need to be?

    I am also a big fan of PrintShop and can't find anything on Ipad to do the things I could do in Printshop. I have tried the free version of Pages but it doesn't work as well so not sure if I want to upgrade to the paid version. REALLY trying to find something to create signs, business cards, etc...

    You must be thinking of another app....there is no free version of Pages...this is a word processing app from Apple. Actually, Pages is very powerful and can create many types of documents...but the question then becomes were do you get all of the fancy types of clipart and such that the PrintShop is known for. Pages, AFAIK, does not come with that stuff.

    I also would like to have "The Print Shop" app for iPad. I am a prepress person for a printing company. I use Quark, Indesign and
    Pages. But I have to tell you..... I used "The Print Shop" app thinking the output quality would probably be crappy.
    Guess what I was wrong. I found this app to be very easy to use and blows pages out of the water. The output was just as good as all
    The pro apps on the Mac computer. It is fast to learn and you can create calendars, business cards, greeting cards and so much more and it does have templates and clip art. I have been searching for an app like Print shop but haven't found it yet.
    I wish apple still had the old art program they had many years ago before they created pages to match word on the windows side.
    Pages is for documents not an all open design program likethe print shop.
    Come on Broderbaum convert The Print Shop to work on the iPad......
