(airy musical tones) - My name is Jess Stratton, and welcome to Office for iPad and iPhone Essential Training. Office for iPad brings the feature-rich capabilities of Microsoft Word, Excel and Power Point all into your iPad to take your office on the go. I'll take you through the essential functions of each of the individual apps, but I'm going to first start by showing you how to install the apps, and then we'll explore some common features that they share.

I'll take you through features of Word, such as working with images and tables. I'll then move on to Excel, and show you how to manipulate columns and rows, insert charts, and work with formulas. After that comes Power Point, and I'll take you through adding slides, working with pictures, and inserting speaker notes. Finally, I'll show you how to collaborate on files including sharing documents and viewing comments.

There's a lot to cover, so let's get started.
