Document Writer for Microsoft Office: Word and PDF is a high quality app with lots of practical features that will please users who need to move documents between PC and Ipad. The app is complex, yet easy to learn. Developers included a tutorial to make starting up a breeze.
While this app is not “educational” in and of itself, it’s very utilitarian for students. Writing projects could be completed and moved between devices. The app also offers the capability to open and manipulate PDF documents, including the capability to annotate and add comments. It can format its output in a variety of ways, including rich text, which can be transferred to MS Word with relative ease. It also can serve as an HTML editor, which is a nice plus for anyone who works on webpage design.
This app is not intended to be entertaining.
This app costs $5.99 on the App Store, which may seem pricy at first, but compared to its competitors, is a good value because it actually works as advertised. One aspect to be aware of, however, is that its advertised faxing capability requires users to be subscribed to a separate service that does have additional fees.
This app is not intended for use by young children. It does offer connection to the internet, access to various file-sharing services, and other useful features that are not particularly child-friendly. These features, however, are necessary to the app’s functionality.
