We've had a chance to get a close look at each of the iWork apps and have found them to be extremely useful on the new platform.

Numbers for iPad is Apple's spreadsheet program, and we were pleasantly surprised with how easy it was to interact with the app. Creating spreadsheets and graphs is incredibly easy on the touch-screen interface, and Apple has streamlined the job of using your spreadsheet data through smart interactive tools that tie your information together.
