Are you using Excel app on your iPad? How do you like it?
It has been just a week since I started using Excel app on my (wife’s) iPad. I love it so far. It is a quick way to look at a spreadsheet, see what is going on and explore the information. I think creating a workbook on it would take a lot of time (or a good keyboard) though.
What about you? Have you downloaded and tested the app? Please comment your experience.
If you have not downloaded it, time to get it.
