    Best document editor?

    Any recommendations on the best document editor? Cant decide between pages, office hd, quick office and docs to go. Leaning towards the last three since they also do powerpoint and excel. Will be using mostly to edit word documents. Thanks in advance.

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

    http://www.ipadforums.net/new-member...31-hi-all.html

    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

    In my experience "compatible" is a rather slippery word. Applications that can handle relatively simple documents often fail when the documents are large and/or complex.

    However, the problem (at least in my experience) is greater with spreadsheets than with word processing documents. Documents to Go and QuickOffice both handle Word documents relatively well. I haven't used it, but I suspect the same is true of Pages.

    Just be careful with complex spreadsheets and presentations.
