Office for iPad review

Updated: Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint apps are now on the iPad. Are they any good?

Word

The iconic word processing program is the most downloaded free app in the App store as of 4 April 2014.

There's less functionality than on the desktop version but this is to be expected. The ribbon includes tabs for home, insert, layout, review and view.

File is in the top left corner and allows you to toggle the AutoSave feature on/off, as well as duplicate or change the name of the document. 

Being an Apple product, the iOS keyboard is locked down so typing relies on the standard onscreen keyboard. Using this keyboard is sufficient for creating or editing smaller documents, but if you want to make serious headway with your work, we recommend getting a Bluetooth keyboard.
