    Hi,
    I'm going to college soon and I would really like to type and/or edit documents on my iPad at school. I am a windows user and not Mac. Right now I can't choose which word processing app to choose from. I'm stuck between pages, office 2 and quick office. Can people who have used one or all of these apps tell me which one they think is best? I know that these apps are still fairly new and still have a lot to be added on but could you guys also tell me which one has the most promise?


    Thanks a lot

    I have pages which is similar to a form of word lite. You can format, add chart symbols, and bullet points. It works pretty good, but I never tried the other two that you mentioned.

    I use pages and really like it. Seems to be the most intuitive to me.

    I've read reviews on websites and on the app store for these apps and they all kinda favor the other 2 processors rather than pages. At the same time I feel like pages will be better than the rest one day because it is made by apple and I don't see why they won't make the best one.

    Documents2Go is another app that hasn't been mentioned yet.

    Please keep in mind reviews can be subjective. Sometimes they have just tried it long enough to see how it works. Those of us that are answering have been using it a lot. That can make a difference.

    I've been using Quickoffice for a week now and really like it and it's only fifteen bucks.
