    Just amazing

    So .... I have to use an office app

    Which *one* office app would you choose , the cheapest one within existing ones , that would do the job. Repeat do the job .... Though the interface etcetera may be a little difficult


    Regards
    The only one I use is Pages (plus Numbers and Keynote). It's great for creating documents on the iPad, and does a pretty good job of importing/exporting Word (.doc and .docx) files. However it is ill suited for passing the same document back and forth between itself and Word, or other Office compatible apps, multiple times. If you need to be able to edit the same document on both the computer and iPad you'll probably be better off with one of the other apps.

    If you do decide to use Pages, and there is no need for the recipient to edit the attachments, I recommend sending the file as a PDF (one of Pages' export options). That pretty much guarantees the recipient will see exactly what you see on the iPad.

    The other Office apps listed here are popular with a fair number of other members. I can't recommend one above the other based on personal experience, and the only side by side comparisons I've seen are too old to be meaningful. If your edits are simple ones, just about any of the apps recommended here (by myself or TheRealRiley) will work.

    However; I would consider buying the best based on your possible needs, rather than worrying about the price. Any amount of money you pay will become a waste if you find out later you needed a more capable app, and end up buying it also. Once you have an Office editing app on your iPad you are likely to find more uses for it than what you currently plan.

    Just got and played with the Textilus app. You still have to do the copy paste workarounds for what you want, but the editing UI is better, and you can choose HTML or RTF formatting for a wider range of possibilities.

    Seems to work best if you start to email the document in Textilus, then copy and paste from the body of that email to the one with the attachment.

    I am unable to find the app you are talking about using the information provided. Do you have the developer's name?
