    Has anyone used Google Docs on the iPad? What's your thoughts? Is it good enough to hold out on purchasing numbers, pages?

    As far as I know if you try to use Safari to go on Google Docs you can only view text documents. You can still edit sheets buts thats about it. I was going to look into Office (2) Pro since its a word and .xls editor plus it connects with Google Docs. Thought that might be nice to try out.

    Well one of the problems with a lot of google apps is that frames don't work on the iPad browser...so it kind of a pain to use. I bought numbers and I've been using it and it's great. I did an invoice last night on the couch while watching prison break and emailed them a PDF without ever turning on my computer.

    I really like the touch controls.
