    Look for CloudOn. Unless I have misunderstood something, thus seems to be pretty aggressively fully functioned for Office editing.

    When/if Microsoft releases Microsoft Office apps on the App Store you won't have to search and wonder. The announcements will be all over the place. Keep an eye on the news section of this forum if nothing else. It does a pretty good job of keeping up with the major stuff, and is rarely more than a day latter than the fastest feeds/blogs/tweets.

    Hi, I am using MS through Cloud On .. which lets you create, view and edit files ... It also lets you use Dropbox to manage your files .. open them, edit them, and save them right in your workspace using your Dropbox account ...

    I think they will announce it with the iPad 3. Best time to do it with all the media there to spread the word.

    Well, bill gates has been on one of these before! Stranger things have happened. I love Apple but MS is the one I use at work so no way of changing.

    Documents2go also works great. And is way cheaper than purchasing pages and numbers separate

    Office is the default system for all industry, government, and other major users. Apple has long accepted this, but they also have a program that is very much a contender for individuals. For the iPad to become useful for more users, it has to be able to work with major business applications. There has been issues on both sides of the fence with implementing Office on Macs for decades. Right now there is little bickering between camps because they need each other. I don't see MS and Apple as competing with each other any more, but with Google.

    I have Quick office pro HD and cloud on...they both do some of what I need, but have their own problems. cannot wait for the MS Office to make it here.
