    Apple's word processor is called Pages and costs $10 from the app store. It will open Word documents, which you can then edit and email in the same format.

    As for learning about the iPad and iOS, you are in the right place. Most of your questions can be answered right here on iPF. Fire away with your questions and we will see what we can do to help.

    As Kevin...I also have the Pages App...and I love it. I have been using it for work related documents and research papers and it has really been easy to convert to a word document!

    Also, if you have an iPhone or iPod touch as well as an iPad, Pages will automatically sync documents between the two.

    You only have to pay for it once, by the way.

    Yes-look at numbers.

    That is the current operating system for your iPad. Check to see what you are running on yours by going to your settings/general/about. Check to see your version.
