    Hi All,

    Well I've taken the plunge, I've purchased my 1st Apple product, the ipad 64GB 3G. I bought it in Dec to take OS to have access to emails and the Net.

    So now I know how to use it to access emails and get on the web I would like to explore some of it's capabilities.

    Being from the darkside (Windows) I am wondering how I can use it for business purposes such as viewing Word docs, Excel spreadsheets and Powerpoint presentations.

    From trolling around on the site it sounds like I need Pages, Numbers and I'm not sure what else. From what I read it appears there is more than one app that one can use for these.

    Can you please give me some guidance as to which are easier for a Newbie to use?

    You may want to check out DocsToGo - the premium version allows for cloud sync. Dropbox, box.net etc - read some reviews, watch some tutorials, and buy. I went back and forth for awhile finally settled on DocsToGo and really enjoy it. I cannot speak for pages, keynote, numbers, or office hd.
