Grade Recommendation: 2nd and up
Specific Skill: Word processing
For iPad, iPod, or Both: Both
While pricey, a powerful word processor is quite necessary on iPads in particular. (I'd probably skip this one for use strictly on iPod Touches.) Think of this app as Microsoft Word for Apple's mobile devices.
The app comes loaded with the following templates: modern photo letter, classic letter, formal letter, personal photo letter, modern photo resume, classic resume, project proposal, term paper, visual report, poster, syllabus, party invite, thank you card, recipe, and flyer. Of course, you may also choose to begin with a blank page.
Users unfamiliar with Pages can tap and scroll through the handy and comprehensive 'Getting Started' document.
Text, photos, shapes, tables, and charts can be added, deleted, and edited with ease. Students as young as second grade will be able to create fun and creative documents!
There are several options to share created documents or to save them for access elsewhere.
