    There are lots of good apps out there, but I have the iWork suite on my iMac and really like it. That said, I would get the Pages app from Apple and the Numbers app from Apple (both part of the iWork suite).

    You can't change the afvatar in the iPF app (well, you can but it's a pain). Go to the site and log in with a browser, click on the User CP tab at the top, and choose Edit Avatar from the column at the right.

    If you are on the iPad you can choose one of the supplied avatars. If you are on a computer you can choose to upload your own avatar. Pay attention to the size limitations.

    It is possible to upload a personal avatar using the iPad, but it's a lot of trouble. Use the computer if you have a choice. If not I'll list the hoops you'll have to jump though to so it using the iPad. Uploading files to web sites is one of the things it's not so good at, unless the site has an app for it, of course.

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


    http://www.ipadforums.net/new-member-introductions-site-assistance/22431-hi-all.html

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

    They can open some word documents but only basic ones. You can make and edit them but don't expect the formatting to work when they are exported unless again they are pretty basic. And don't expect to be able to view or create track changes or comments. If you want to do those fire up Word or Excel on a laptop or PC/Mac
