    Ave many people used docs to go? I have used it quite bit for work and it is quite good but as the formatting changes, I have to be a little creative. Great for downloading power points, charts, excel spreadsheets though. Can anyone recommend anything better? Cheers....

    I think I'm with you on this. I bought it as a "safety net" incase someone emailed me something I couldnt otherwise have been able to access. So its come into use a few times but am waiting for something better to come along.

    Cheers

    I use Docs to Go with Dropbox integration, I've really liked the functionality.

    great article comparing apps! I'd noticed only Numbers could display excel graphics, it is odd.

    How do you use Docs to Go with Dropbox? I want to open a file that is in Dropbox, then amend with Docs to Go then save back to Dropbox, but am a new user and having trouble. How do I check what version of Docs to Go is on the Ipad?

    If you have the Premium Edition of Docs2Go you can use Dropbox. Have a look here...

    Glad to help. The two versions are:

    DocsToGo Office Suite

    DocsToGo Premium Office Suite

    The word "Premium" should be in the App's name.

    Thanks - very grateful for the help & have it working now! Is it possible to amend a file in Docs to Go and save with the same name? I keep getting the message that the file is read only.

    I don't have it on my iPad at the moment so can't test it. Perhaps others will chime in.

    Why do some of my MS Word files appear as 'read only" files? Is there a fix for this? I'm not very tech savy so please forgive me if this is a stupid question.
