    You'll need to be more specific about what type of documents you want to work with and where they are currently stored, or if you're going to create them from scratch.

    In general, you can find an app (usually many apps) to edit most document types. Depending on the app you can either copy the documents directly to and from the computer with a cable or wi-fi, or you can use a cloud service like iCloud, DropBox or Box.com to copy the files.

    While you can copy files between GoodReader and the computer (by various means) it only has the ability to edit basic .txt files and annotate PDF's. Other file types can only be viewed. You still need a third party app to edit them, and since most of those apps also have the means to copy files between the computer and iPad, buying GoodReader for this reason alone is of little use.

    Not so say there are not plenty of other reasons for getting GoodReader. It is a very useful app.
