    I have been researching the best app for creating and editing documents, spreadsheets, and powerpoints and to me, quickoffice connect mobile suite looks like the overall best. It will allow me to sync with my google docs and dropbox accounts as well. Has anyone had any experience with this app?

    I use this app nearly every day. I love it. I connect it to by dropbox account. Very useful app.

    I've tried all of the office apps and ended up settling with Documents To Go Premium (currently $14.99). It seemed to offer the best compatibility of them all.

    No, I haven't used it with google docs. I also have Docs to Go Premium, but I like QuickOffice better. Just my opinion.

    Will quickoffice allow you to work on your documents offline and then sync it to your google account/dropbox when you are back online?

    Is it possible to use a stylus to make notes on a .doc or .xls with either of these apps?

    I want to be able to show a customer a service agreement, add notes to it and then have them sign the document.

    Yeah! This is a great forum. Taught myself everything I know about apple/iOS/iPad from here and hands on. A great place to learn about your device and learn new tricks and features that you might have overlooked.

    Sent from my Jailbroken IPad on 4.2.1 ;-)

    I'm not sure about that. I convert my files to PDF and then annotate on the PDF. Maybe someone else know the answer.

    As flttrainer mentioned, converting to PDF and then signing that is a good option. I am also not too sure, whether a signed word document would count as a legal contract. For signing and writing on PDF's, iAnnotate is a very good app.

    +1 for iAnnotate. You can then email your document from the app. I use Save2PDF to convert the files to a PDF.

    I don't need to edit MS Office files just Google Docs. Is there a good app that will allow me to do that. Or should I splurge and get DTG Premium?

    Confirm sync capabilities

    Just to confirm, you can not only download files from dropbox and google docs, but you can sync back up to them as well? In reading the documentation it says you can pick them up from said services but there is no mention of syncing with them.

    Thanks,

    Have a look at SignMyPad. It allows you to sign PDF documents and to integrate text boxes and radio buttons. It's been receiving great reviews from Forum members. You can 'flatten' the resulting PDF and email off the resulting document - say sending a copy of a signed invoice to a customer, on the spot.

    It's extensive as a summary but not as in what syncs best. What offers google docs and drop box. These are the intregal questions. I see on DTG, it says specifically sync, but QuickO does not. Hypothetically, quick seems to have the better specs, but i need to be able to sync and overwrite files.

    Another question: which of these recognizes writepad files, not as pdf's but text files??

    Don't know about google docs, but I do with dropbox all the time. I keep all my school stuff on it. I use it to access student grades, lectures, etc and then upload any changes. I can access all my docs from my iPad, iPhone, or home/work pc.
