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

    Another comparison was undertaken here....

    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

    Check out Pages, Numbers and Keynote. Worth the $10 each. I've had them so long that I've truly forgot how I dealt with Word, Excel or PowerPoint documents before I had them.

    For 1/2 the cost of the iWorks (Pages/Numbers/Keynote) there is Documents To Go Premium which offers direct access to Dropbox within the app and it supports Excel, Word, PPT and many other formats including PDF and many image formats. Docs2Go Premium is $16. It has also been around supporting Office Doc Formats since the Palm Pilot days.
