    Reading excel spreadsheets on ipad

    Hi,

    I would want to be able to open and read Excel (both xls and xlsx) files on my ipad.
    It is not necessary for me to edit those files, just to be able to read them (most of them are sent by email or through dropbox)

    So i don't think I need Numbers or Office HD.

    Is there an other (cheaper) app for that?

    thanks for any advice

    Patrick

    One of our members carried out a survey of Office apps for his company; you can see his conclusions in this thread...

    The Apple iWorks Office suite for the iPad has a set of useful Help pages that show their capabilities here...

    Pages is Word compatible and can read .doc and .docx files and save in .doc and .pdf

    Keynote is PowerPoint compatible and can read .ppt and .pptx files and save in .ppt and .pdf

    Numbers is Excel compatible and can read .xls and .xlsx files and save in .xls and .pdf

    Do you have GoodReader (it's $4.99 USD in the App Store...)?

    You can't edit the files with it, but it'll open .xls and .xlsx Excel files. You can read as is (including switching between tabs) or zoom & pan.

    It's not awesome, but it'll do the job. Plus, Goodreader is such a jack-of-all-trades app that you can end up using it for lots of other stuff.

    Just a thought.
