How to Send iWork Files Via Email with Your iPad

If you’re creating iWork files on your iPad there are several ways to get those files from the iPad to your computer and to others. I covered the use of iTunes to get those files in a previous post. In this how-to I’ll show you how you can email iWork files from within the application in several formats; PDF, iWork formats, and MS Office formats. By doing this you will be able to send the files as a PDF to yourself and to others.

Do you own an iPad? You might want to look into protecting your investment with invisibleSHIELD screen protectors. If you need any help or have questions please post them below.
