    Hey, anyone have a suggestion for an iPad for making tables/charts? I'm a med student and I need to make a lot of very simple tables (e.g. 3 columns: Drug name, Indications, Side Effects.) Thoughts?

    Thanks!

    Quickgraph, and Easychart...But Numbers should do the trick, even if its a little high end for your needs.

    Numbers does a lot more than I need to do; I'm just looking to make some study guides with barebones columns & rows. (I don't need to convert the tables to graphs).

    I normally don't like to but items that offer more functionality than I need, but when it comes to software, more is usually better. You may not need certain functionality now, but I bet you can find a use for it or you may need it in the future and then you end up spending more on separate items.

    Numbers, Pages or Keynote will make charts and tables for you. Perhaps you could use the added functionality of one those?

    Which do y'all think is best for creating simple tables? Pages, keynote, or numbers?

    EDIT: Ok I went with Pages. Now if I download it onto my iPhone too (which I assume is free), will I see my iPad Pages documents there? (Thanks for all your help everyone).

    Ok so I see that it syncs with my iPhone - great! One more big question:

    When I'm working in a Table on Pages, I want to hit Tab to go to the next cell. But it doesn't work! (Instead it inserts an "indent-style" tab). Any keyboard shortcut to go the next cell, using an external keyboard?

    (Also, I can't see my iPad documents on my iPhone...)
