When a student volunteer volunteers to write and share a review of her favorite piece of software, you gotta pay attention. This week, Stephanie shared with me her love of Pages for the iPad. And she wants to share that love:
With the 2010-2011 school year now in session, the biggest problem facing students is their homework. Especially for students on the go, finding a time to sit down at a computer equipped with Microsoft Office to type a homework assignment isn’t always easy. The answer to the solution for students with iPads is an app called Pages. Pages is a part of a series of apps that make up the iWork suite for iPad, these other apps include Keynote and Numbers.
Pages might be a scaled down version of Pages for Mac, but it gets the job done. Basic features needed to create a document are readily available at your fingertips. Easily insert media from your saved photos and videos on your iPad, add a header, spell check or count the number of words in your work, and more with Pages for iPad. This app also comes with 3 easy to use templates, writing a letter was just made easier with Pages.
When using Pages you no longer have to worry about constantly saving your work. Your work is saved every time you make a change. Pages doesn’t leave your work stuck on your iPad, you can export the file in 3 different formats and send it to an e-mail address. For students who have a subscription to MobileMe, files can be exported to your iDisk.
Although Pages has a somewhat hefty price tag of $9.99 in the AppStore, it’s more than worth your money. For any student on the go, Pages for iPad is the answer to your homework needs.
