Re: PowerPoint
I am not an analyst or statistics intensive user so I am not able to comment much on Excel shortcuts. But I do love Office on iPad, especially the look/feel and usabibility. It will help business people a lot during traveling. But I have one doubt - if MS tries to put in a plug for Office on iPad, will it affect MS Surface business? The reason is that iPad can also have Office.:-)

Re: PowerPoint
The Excel enhancements on the iPad are definitely a huge step up for usability. We like to use Google Sheets for it's simplicity, but there are times when we want to do more advanced operations and that's where Excel on the desktop thrives. Good to hear that Microsoft is adding more advanced functionality to the iPad to make Excel as robust on the iPad as it is on the desktop.

Curious to learn more about the external keyboard with the "shortcuts." Has anyone seen the keyboard yet? We developed an innovative solution for helping people learn Excel keyboard shortcuts specifically for the Mac. We created a silicone rubber keyboard cover that shows the 20 most commonly used keyboard shortcuts as used by analysts and MBA students. Our goal is to make you more productive by not wasting time doing manual operations for data formatting and data manipulation.
