Excel on iPad

 

OnLive Desktop is apparently bringing Windows 7 and Microsoft Office to the iPad, according to a report in Macworld. This will be available from the AppStore from Thursday 12th January.To quote OnLive Founder and CEO Steve Perlman"OnLive Desktop is the first app to deliver a no-compromise, media-rich Windows desktop experience to iPad, opening up powerful new possibilities for consumers and businesses. iPad users will now be able to simply and securely view and edit cloud-hosted documents with full-featured Windows desktop applications like Microsoft Office, just as if they were using a local high-performance PC. Multi-touch gestures respond instantly and smoothly, while HD videos, animations and PC video games-never before usable on a remote desktop-play seamlessly." (quotation care of Macworld report).

I know a lot of iPad users want good spreadsheet functionality on the iPad, so this might be the way forward.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I compiled a guide to iPad spreadsheet tools in December, but as is the way of these things it was out of date as soon as I published it.

OnLive Desktop will be my next stop, and while I'm at it, I'll add it to our Apps directory.

If any other members of this group are aware of other useful Excel tools for the iPad, this is as good a place as any to let us know.
