A quick look over the Word for iPad features,

Here’s a look at the major features in Word for iPad, looking over the four main tabs. The buttons will be familiar in most cases though the underlying menus/galleries are different and limited compared to Word for Windows or Mac.

Shameless plug:
Office for iPad: The Complete Guide is now available.  Every tab, ribbon and menu in the detail that Microsoft’s own documentation/help misses out.  Only $4.95 for Office-Watch.com readers and available to read today.  Click here.

 

Below each image is a list of the buttons / menus from left to right.
