Re: Accounting Question

Here is the approach I have used for decades - started with Quicken in 1986.

Re: MS Word?

I suggest you read in the iTunes store and at the Microsoft site. I believe I read syncing is through SkyDrive only. You cannot create or modify Office files unless you use Office 365 on your iOS devices and several other user related issues.

Re: iPhone 6 users may want to know this.
