    Documents to Go is $11.99
    Office2 HD is $7.99

    Primarily I want word processing and spreadsheet capabilities, I have very little interest in presentations, but might be useful one day. If the Documents to Go has vastly superior word processing capabilities, I would choose that anyway.

    Opinions?

    Go for Doc2Go it's way ahead and integrates so well with other apps like Google Docs

    Gonna give my usual vote for d2g....

    It has been around over 10 years, which in the mobile app world is like saying you watched the Big Bang.....

    It is the ONLY thing on the iPad that handles the latest '07 office files....

    It is awesome when used with a cloud app...


    It's not great to look at, can be confusing, far from perfect.... but the best at least for now...

    If you can wait, Quickoffice says it will be out soon too. I think either quickoffice or D2G will be best, but not sure which will end up better in the near term. Both will likely have major upgrades in the next couple months after the initial version comes out.

    I have both of the apps listed and Docs to Go is the better of the two at the present time. As others have said, it integrates very well with cloud services like Google Docs, DropBox, etc. and supports Office 2007 formats.

    As I said before, d2g is the best available.... but for $12 don't expect the full MS office experience. You can do a lot with it, and it at least for me is 100% compatible (and that is most important) but it can be clumsy to work with. Futz around with it, and it will make more since......

    Tested both ... Docs To Go

    I tested both applications (means I hosed out extra dollars).

    I wrote a review of my experience at: dreamvent.blogspot.com/2011/04/cloud-docs-on-ipad.htm

    Executive Summary: Docs To Go wins the day.

    i'm an office2hd user - brilliant for excel. best ive used so far.
    pretty poor for word docs, purely because, and whatever format you import/export, it has problems saving and recognising your page layout and formatting style. keeps messing things up (like address positioning and indenting). very very frustrating.
