Microsoft offers three office apps that are designed specifically for the iPad:  Word for iPad, Excel for iPad, PowerPoint for iPad.  Each iPad app is installed separately.  If you have a 3rd generation or higher iPad, you have the option to install "Microsoft Office Mobile" instead, which installs mobile versions of Word, Excel, and Powerpoint using a single interface.  The iPad must be running iOS 7.0 or later.

To install Word for iPad, Excel for iPad, or PowerPoint for iPad, do the following:

1)  Go to the app store on the iPad (you'll need to use your iTunes account)

2)  Select "Search" and set the filter along the top to "iPad only"

3) Enter the name of the app you'd like to install (Word for iPad, Excel for iPad, PowerPoint for iPad)
