They came back and created a “personal” pricing plan where you could install Office on 2 machines – a computer and a tablet. The $6.95 a month ($70 a year) plan actually made more sense. It comes with Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Access, Publisher, and One Note. It also comes with 20 GB of OneDrive storage, Skype with 60 minutes of calls each...

Cartamundi has some project cards where you place, tap the sequential numbers, and the “sticker” shows up on the scene. We placed a series of smurfs on the screen, which we could easily remove with a tap. The next type of card was a 3D visor. You move the card around the iPad and it finds hidden items.
