    Hi Forum,
    I am a new member to this site but have had an IPad2 for 3 years. I have facilitated an IPad Users group at our local library having been a former teacher. For about 8 months I was without a laptop PC and used my IPad for everything. The only thing I needed was Microsoft Office which was not easily workable on the IPad. I do not use my PC as much with my IPad available.

    Hello! Welcome to iPF! Have a nice time here.

    Apple provides equivalents of the main 3 softwares of MS Office. Keynote is equivalent to Powerpoint, Pages is similar to Word, and Numbers is similar to Excel. All are available on the app store. You can also try Quickoffice, also available on the App store.
