Ipad numbers review 2012


Apple’s Numbers is the spreadsheet component of their iWork productivity suite of software, and a companion app to Pages for word processing and Keynote for presentations. Universal apps that work on iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, all three have proven to be popular choices for document management on the go and have just recently been updated to support for iOS 5.1 and the new iPad’s Retina display.If you’re a new iPad or iPhone owner and need a way to create and edit spreadsheets on the go, Numbers is Apple’s iCloud integrated solution. The question is, how easy is it to use and how much can you really do with it?Apple’s Numbers isn’t Microsoft’s Excel. That’s the first and most important thing to remember. Apple’s goal wasn’t to copy Excel, Lotus, or Visicalc, but to come up with a spreadsheet program that was easy to use and could produce great looking documents fairly quickly.That said, if you’ve used Excel in the past, you should feel pretty comfortable with Numbers as well.To add content to a spreadsheet in Numbers — whether it be text, a table, an image, or something else, you simply tap on the Add button (looks like a + sign) in the top right corner.Once you add an object, you can move on to editing and formatting it.

Numbers also makes it easy to format content with the formatting brush. It’s represented by a paintbrush icon in the upper right hand corner. In order to use it, you’ll need to highlight something you’d like to format. From there it will smartly choose options based on what kind of content you’d like to edit..For example, if you select a table full of data, it will give you the option to turn that data into charts or graphs quickly and easily. If you’re selecting a block of text, it’ll give you options for format that text as a header, change the font, place borders around it, and many more options.
If you’ve used past versions of iWork on your iPhone or iPad, you may have noticed that the formatting icon and menu have changed a bit in the updated version.Numbers gives you a few ways that you can share your content directly from your iPhone or iPad. You can share your work via e-mail, send it to iTunes (where you can open it via the desktop Numbers app for Mac), and print it.Currently Numbers still gives users the option to share it to iWork.com or iDisk as well. Given iDisk and iWork.com will be discontinued this summer, I’m not quite sure why Apple is still allowing them as options. I’d advise new users to stay away from them and just enable iCloud from the beginning to avoid having to transfer documents over before Apple turns off these services.iWork Suite by Apple comprises of the astonishing Keynote, Pages and Numbers app. We have shared detailed reviews of Keynote app and the Pages app but Numbers app was left.
