I just joined today after owning my Ipad for nearly 3 years. Lately some issues have begun with my 'Pad' that are a bit frustrating. I am not sure if this instrument is showing its age, or if this is something easily correctable. I am hoping the latter is the case. I am a retired Forester, and I use the Ipad for simple communications, and my PC/ Laptop to print docs and perform file construction and edit functions. I very much like the ipad, but have limited income, so purchasing MSOffice for my ipad is not likely to happen. I am interested in other editable apps to fill-in for Excel and Word. Thanks for allowing me on board!
