    Hi everyone!

    This IPad thing is all very new to me and quite lost! There are a couple of things that I am finding quite confusing at the moment. Can someone please tell me which is the cheapest and best app's for writing documents and using flash?


    Many thanks

    Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!

    Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.

    Have fun and enjoy your iPad

    One of our members carried out a survey of Office apps for his company; you can see his conclusions in this thread...

    Another comparison was undertaken here....

    The Apple iWorks Office suite for the iPad has a set of useful Help pages that show their capabilities here...

    Pages is Word compatible and can read .doc and .docx files and save in .doc and .pdf

    Keynote is PowerPoint compatible and can read .ppt and .pptx files and save in .ppt and .pdf

    Numbers is Excel compatible and can read .xls and .xlsx files and save in .xls and .pdf

    The iPad cannot play Flash and there is no real solution to this. Some third-party browsers 'sort of' support it by hosting the content on their web site but it's generally less than satisfactory.

    If you don’t already have it you can download a copy of the iPad manual for free.

    Thanks Tim that is a great help , I have chosen the pages app which seems quite adequate for my needs. But now I have headache that my HP photos smart C4780 wireless printer doesn't seem to be able to air print. Have you any suggestions, as finding it all very stressful getting the basic stuff on my iPad !!!
