    Hi All

    I have just bought the new iPad and would like to know if possible which will be the best app to choose for working with word and excel documents?

    Any assistance would be much appreciated.

    Two in my opinion, Evernote is good as is 'docstogo'. Both have good/bad points depends on your needs.

    For what I need to do, the two Apple apps 'numbers' and 'pages' are a perfect match.
    Both import/export word and excel files.

    Hope this helps.

    Can you import formulated excel sheets? To numbers? I got the quick office app because it's an all in one app, rather than getting 3 separate apps for office. I wish apple just made a office all in one app rather than 3 separate apps

    Could you please tell me what you mean with formulated excel sheets? Sheets with formulas?
    That will depend on the kind of formula. As far as I know numbers can only cope with a limited set of excel formulas.

    Hope this helps.

    Simple formulas from excel spread sheets. Summation etc, basic functions nothing to complicated.

    Simple formulas, basic ones shouldn't be a problem for numbers.
    But if you want to be on the safe side send me your most complex sheet with dummy numbers and I will try.

    Hi,

    You tap on the attachment and a window pops up and says 'open in' and you can choose numbers or pages.

    So the answer to your question is: Yes, numbers and pages will open MS Office attachments in mails.
