    Just got my new iPad Air and I Love It! Still have my 2 but this feels so much lighter, I'm carrying it around with me.
    Anyway, am now getting serious about using it during the work day and thought those of you who already use it for work can advise on some must-have apps.
    BTW, I have an iPhone,but my computers at home and work are PCs.
    Thanks!

    The productivity apps are all FREE with your new iPad air! Pages, Numbers, Keynote....as well as iPhotos and GarageBand. Just log onto the App Store and grab them!

    Thanks for your input.
    Is there a tutorial on how to transfer documents in Pages, Keynote, etc to Word, Power Point, or is this even possible?
    I would hate to create a presentation in Keynote and not be able to use it on my PC.
    Thanks

    When you create a file in Pages (just as an example), tap the "Share" icon, to get these options:

    Choose "Open in another app"

    Tap "Word"

    Here, tap "Choose app"

    And apps installed on your iPad that can open the newly created Word file will be visible. Select the one you prefer.

    You'll have to go to the AppStore (on your iPad) and download the app. Then, after opening the app, sign in with your Amazon account Information and you'll be able to browse your books.

    Hope this helps. Let us know how you get on.

    The Kindle app is not one of the standard pre-installed apps, it has to be downloaded from the AppStore. It is a free app. Here is the AppStore link. https://itunes.apple.com/ca/app/kindle/id302584613?mt=8

    If your wife has already purchased Kindle books from Amazon, she can download them to the app and read them on her iPad.
