    I may just go ahead with Pages but will ask once:

    I need to transfer WP. files from msworks to my iPad and be able to

    Store them
    Change font size
    Arrange them in any order to pop up next
    Flip to page two with a swipe

    What I am after is replacing my clip board with hard copy of song words.
    The iPad will sit on a music stand while I play guitar.
    If this can happen a host of problems will be solved for my lil show.

    Well instead of shelling out the money for pages you could either just make it a .PDF and put it on your iPad and view it for free. Sure you can't change the font size but if you wanna pay ten bucks go for it. Also if you download dropbox it is a free app that is a cloud that is an app for any smart device and computer. You can drag and drop the word files from your computer to your dropbox and then you can view them on your iPad anytime. I'm pretty sure it will view almost any text files.
