I have an iPad and use it daily but I'm a stay at home mom so don't need office apps but my mother in law just received an iPad from us for her bday and she wants word. Basically using iPad as her main computer. We bought her a wireless printer and it can eprint or iprint but I came across onlive desktop I loved it exactly what I wanted until I tried to print so couldn't do that then an option of email...nope couldn't do the either. You have to go on PC then download it then go from there. She is 58 and too many steps would be too hard for her to remember every time. But I don't think she needs a expensive app just something like Word because she is used to it. She likes writing a paper"card" to make as a card then pasting pictures to it.
