    MICROSOFT OFFICE QUESTION
    Is there an app that would allow me to change/modify office documents?

    Hmm...well, as someone who wants to use my Ipad to write term papers (and yes, that's what I'm planning on doing with my Zagg keyboard combo), might anyone know of a different word processor that DOES make good footnotes?

    Not on the iPad, I am afraid.

    Google docs does footnotes though :)

    When I've used it, it has weird looking blue hyperlink style footnotes. :(

    Also, does it work in the iPad?

    I don't know if this is only available in the US and it's also US $9.99 but Documents to Go allows you to create Word documents. It's what I use. It's hardly free like you are seeking, but I got it for different reasons and I am a historic user of it from my Palm OS days. There is a more expensive premium edition too that I think allows stuff with drop box, but I don't need that-I have the regular one. But it is a word processing program so just figured I would mention it as an option. But no, it's not free though. For the record, I use Open Office on my MAC!! Would be great if it had a counterpart on iOS, right??

    So, as per my other demands...how are the footnotes? And does it swap back and forth from Open Office OK? :D

    I haven't had to insert footnotes, but it is my understanding that it does have that function. (you could write to Data Viz support to inquire)
    I haven't come across any huge compatibility issues with Open Office as of yet either, but I preface that with the fact that I'm not an everyday writer either.

    I have quick office HD, and I'm disappointed by the footnote formatting thus far!

    None of paid iPad office apps offer 100% compatibility with Microsoft Office files!

    If you need full Office support, you better ditch iPad and get a Windows netbook/laptop.
