I started using Numbers shortly after I downloaded Pages because I needed something I could create spreadsheets on. I was never very good at creating spreadsheets when I used Excel, probably because it intimidated me. I fully understood how it worked but there was always so much to wade through to just get the job done. I was not looking for anything that was too high powered because I was creating simple spreadsheets for tracking prices, commissions and budgets. The app comes with some preloaded templates for your convenience but creating your own document takes no time. I found that the touch interface works much easier so that I can go from cell to cell, create new fields and drag and drop cells wherever I need them. I soon realized that Numbers was the only spreadsheet program that I would be using from then on. There was nothing intimidating about the app and with the ability to update these spreadsheets on the go it allowed me to get work done wherever I was.
