    If it is anything like Pages, I could not find a way to access my Dropbox documents. I ended up using Quick Office Connect.

    If you have the dropbox app installed or something like readledocs, good reader etc. These allow you to access you dropbox docs, then rather than using open, which opens them in the apps native reader, you use 'open in' option and it will give you a list of compatible apps you can open that file in. E.g pages etc.

    That is really useful thanks. One question, how do I then save my edits in Pages back to dropbox? I have tried but so far I have failed.

    Don't think you can. Pages supports WebDAV but dropbox doesn't support that. I having been using iworks.com with pages which is free, until such time they add dropbox support.

    Unless there is a util that can read both iworks and dropbox, in the way readdledocs can for somethings.
