In Review: Keynote, Pages and Numbers for iPad
Apple, yes, Apple. They have an online help specifically for Keynote, Pages and Numbers for the iPad. In addition, they also have an iPad support portal with information on the three iWork apps, iBooks, Wi-Fi, 3G, Syncing, Mail, Applications, Accessories, Enterprise, Service and Repair along with a Get Started page for new users.
Kevin Purcell over at Notebooks.com has a video on working with iWork.com (beta) and the apps: Hands On: iWork.com for Use with iPad iWork Apps. He then followed up with: Can iWork Make You More Productive?
I also liked Jeff Smykil’s The keyboardless Office: a review of iWork for iPad review on Ars Technica although I disagree with his final conclusion as to the usability of the product. I think that it is very useable “in the field” and that once you get used to the differences (and some inconsistencies) between the two apps, you can be quite productive with iPad’s iWork suite.
I will continue to work with the iWork for iPad suite and take notes as I learn tricks and tips to help us be more productive with our time.
If you have a link to a review or tutorials on using the iWork apps for iPad that you wish to share or if you have deep feelings about Keynote, Pages or Numbers (or File Sharing) on the iPad, please comment below. Let your voices be heard. Cheers!
