iPads for School. iPads do have schoolwork apps made by Apple ® not an unknown company. They have an equivalent for Word, PowerPoint and Xcel. The apps look incredible. They are called Pages (Word), Keynote (PowerPoint) and Numbers (Xcel). These apps can be saved in it’s own file, PDF file or a normal Microsoft file. These apps may be compatible with iPhone and iPod Touch but it will be better to keep school work away from personal use and its big screen will help seeing the text easier and easier editing.
