Editors' Review


First things first: iPad has absolutely no relation to Apple's tablet computer of the same name. Its nearest relative is actually Microsoft's Notepad, the bare-bones text editor that comes with most versions of Windows. iPad is a slightly fancier rendition of Notepad and similar programs, delivering a lightweight word processor for users who want a few extra features but who don't need a program as heavy duty as Word.

iPad's interface is sleek and attractive, reminding us a lot of newer versions of Microsoft Office. Its features are laid out in an intuitive toolbar at the top and include all the basics: clipboard functions, formatting for fonts and paragraphs, and undo and redo buttons. iPad lets users save files in a variety of formats, including a proprietary iPad format, rich text files, and plain text files. A Notes tab lets users record comments about the file they're working on. The program also supports Book It!, a separate program that allows users to create "books," or collections of files. Unfortunately, instructions for using Book It! were not particularly clear, and we never did figure out exactly how it works. iPad has a built-in Help file, but it's pretty sparse and not all that helpful. Overall, we found iPad to be a nice-looking, basic word processor, and we think it's a good choice for anyone who's looking for something that's just a bit more fleshed out than Notepad.

iPad installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.

"Book it! Help"

August 09, 2010  |  By ccr05

 |  Version: iPad


This should clear up any confusion you have about the Book it! feature.


We made a mistake when publishing iPad by not including a help file about Book it! that went into further detail. We hope that this has helped any confusion, in the next update of iPad all of this will be included.


Instead of making an update for a simple error we mad ( CR Developments ), we will just fix the error here. How do you use Book it? In the text box you see when you first open Book it! that contains the text "New book it! Name" is the place where you add the title of your "Book" of files. Such as you could put "iPad Files" then click New. Now you see the "Book" titled iPad Files, when you double click the book, it will open the book. Now you can add files to the book, simple click add and select the files. Now when you run Book it! all of your books will appear and you can open each and modify any of them at any time.

Please note : When you click the delete button ( need to have a file selected ) you only delete it from the "Book" not your computer.
