    So... I'm playing around with Numbers, and although it's highly functional, it's not the most intuitive product I've ever used. Here are some things I've noticed that may help someone, and also some issues, as well.

    1. When you are using the number pad to fill in the contents of a cell, the keyboard no longer clicks
    (it emits a clicking sound when using the qwerty, but NOT when using the 10 key. And that's just silly.

    Quick tips:
    1. If you want to "fill" cells, you first click on a cell, then pause. Click on it again, and you'll have the fill option (as well as others)
    2. To select a row, tap the area to the left of the row. Same goes for columns
    3. The form that Numbers generates may not work as expected, if you do not format your spreadsheet first

    One more thing- there is a built in help, hiding under the settings menu (the one shaped like a wrench)
