    Welcome to the forum!
    You'll need to rebuy the program as it is for a different platform, sorry. It's worth it though.

    Thanks for the quick reaction! I'll know what to do with my next payment! If I have it installed, can I share my documents from my MacBook on ICloud with my iPad?

    No problem, sorry this second one took slightly longer ;). iCloud only works for its devices so you can't use it in conjunction with your MacBook. Apple provides a different solution. When you buy an iWork app you get a document space on the net that allows you to upload. Documents from your iPad to the iWork website and then access them from any other device that has a browser and document facilities (I use it all the time for moving school work from my iPad to the school servers). Another solution is to use Dropbox. If you're unsure quite how this works a quick search on this forum will give you the answers you seek.

    You can also use icloud.com in a web browse to import/export files between the Mac and iOS devices.

    Hold in mind that while anything done on iOS will easily work on the Mac, not all of the advanced features in the OS X version of the iWorks suite will work on the iPad. When you import them to the iPad it will warn you that it is removing features (if necessary) and list what it removed.

    I just posted some in info on working with DropBox and iWorks in this thread. You may find it useful.
