    I've tried some of the free prod apps - they're junk. Can you guys recommend a good, reasonably priced (doesn't have to be free) office simulation, e.g. Excel & Word, app. I am not going to mention any names, but I'm tired of being ripped off. I am runningiOS 7.1 on an iPad 3. Thanks.

    I use Documents by Readdle and it works great here. Have you tried this app?

    Quickoffice is junk?

    How I feel: I haven't needed to open MS Office files very often on my iPad, but when I have, the free Quickoffice from Google has always been adequate. Not fancy, but not junk. If I need more capability, I use Libre Office on my iMac.

    Maybe I'm looking for something that doesn't exist yet. I would like to do all of my document creation, viewing, editing, & printing on my iPad as I have a real keyboard. We travel a lot and because the iPad is so much lighter, more versatile, & easier to manage than my netbook, I prefer it.

    Pay the $99/year and get the real deal, Word for iOS, Excel for iOS, PowerPoint for iOS, and OneNote for iOS. It is in the App store now.
