    I use GoogleDocs a lot. My business PC's are all Linux powered, my personal laptop is a Macbook and my girlfriends PC is Windows. Not to mention my iPad and iPhone.

    I use all of these for editing documents and need to be able to view and edit the same docs on all of these platforms.

    So GoogleDocs seems to fit the bill nicely.

    However trying use use the Spreadsheets on my iPad brings up all sorts of errors and the formulae sometimes throw up errors. I have no issues on anything else, just the iPad.

    Does anyone have a good App that brings in all the functionality of GoogleDocs to the iPad. There seem to be many that make the claim but almost all of them seem to be Microsoft Office aimed, rather than focusing on the cloud computing aspect.

    Any alternatives also willingly investigated with open arms!

    Tim,
    Do you know if there is a good GoogleDocs app for the iPhone? I use Gmail app for iPad which allows me to edit, but I can only find the GoogleDocs manager app on the iPhone that only reads. The gmail app on the iPhone doesn't access the docs like it does on the iPad. Thanks for the help! Julie

    The Google Search app is universal. You can access many of the google apps through it. When you access Google Docs this way they are editable on both devices.

    App Store - Google Search
