Re: Compatibility
Sooner or later, you'll run into a richly formatted Microsoft Word document that you won't be able to read properly, or read at all. Gaining access to it through other means will be such a schedule-buster that you might very well consider Office for iPad, whether you originally planned to or not.

Re: Compatibility
As someone who works with just about every platform, one of my biggest issues is that I still view iOS as a consumption platform, rather than a device running Windows which makes it easier to actually create office documents.  The ability for users to create meaningful content on a device such as presentations, rich text documents, has definitely hindered iOS adoption from a tablet perspective, especially in environments which are standardized on Microsoft Office.

Re: Compatibility
That's part of the limitations of working on a mobile device. Of course you can't expect to have all the features of the desktop version of the software, but I think with time and with more tweaks, the experience they're giving users is pretty good already.

Re: Compatibility
In my opinion, OS environment is the tie-breaker. I use all Oses and on Android and Windows, I have more options for opening, editing and sharing documents than on IOS. On Android particularly, the back button is a productivity gain over others. Mobile apps have many limitations versus Windows or Mac apps. For true productivity, a laptop cannot be surpassed.

ipad charger
A portable ipad charger is the best charger that one can purchase. There are so many types of chargers for ipad, but the portable one is the perfect choice. You will be able to carry this charger with you and use it whenever your ipad runs out of battery. You do not have to miss capturing those special moments simply because the ipad is out of battery and it has been totally drained since you do not have access to a power socket. The portable ipad charger is, thus, a convenient and easy to use charger. The charger I am talking about will be fine here CHOETECH Amazon http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00HZF6UD4
