Microsoft Word: Familiar and powerful. If you like Word on the PC, you’ll probably be pretty happy with Word for iPads. Impressively, the app is both instantly familiar to users of other versions of Office, yet also wholly an iPad app. The ribbon interface adds surprisingly little clutter, with a clean interface and touch-friendly icons, but offers a deep set of tools.
