    Has anyone heard of a BASIC spread sheet app for an ipad ?
    Can't seem to find anything that isn't over-the-top with bells and whistles or just doesn't seem to work all that well.

    I gave "Pages" a try .... wasn't too bad , but still seemed more complex then necessary for my needs.

    I really miss the old "appleworks" app ..... was disappointed when it was discontinued as I had become quite used to it.

    Cheers , Bilbo

    You mention 'Pages' but I assume you meant Apple's iWorks Excel app, 'Numbers'. This is a fairly basic spreadsheet app - in fact, the usual complaint that we get is that it's too basic!!


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

    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

    Simple Spreadsheets

    Have you looked at Google Apps, one is spreadsheet and being online lets you work on it from any connected machine. I am just getting stated with it and you can create online or push one up to the cloud an existing one. It is also capable of creating online forms that fill in the blanks and they have just added pivot tables so you can get quite complex.

    You will need a Google account but it may be worth a look.
