For myself, I am using iWorks which is Apple's office suite; includes Pages, Numbers, & Keynote (tablet equivalents of Word, Excel, & PowerPoint although not w/ the diversity & power of the desktop versions).
Finally, if you are planning to do a LOT of typing & data entry, I would strongly encourage you to purchase a BT (bluetooth) keyboard; I use the Apple version, but other stand-alone options & ones built into covers/cases for the iPad are available. Good luck on your choices!
Thanks for your warm welcome
