    Hi,
    I was trying to download the Microsoft Office package to my iPad but the customer reviews are bad. Can anyone suggest any alternative?
    Thanks

    Eh? Microsoft hasn't released Office for iPad yet. There's only talk that they may do so at some point next year. They're still developing it. But I can tell you...a LOT of people are eagerly awaiting Office for iPad.

    Anyway, could you please elaborate? Perhaps you've gotten the product names mixed up?

    Okay, I searched the App Store using "Microsoft Office". I think I found what you saw...look here at the pic I've attached (tap on it to get a bigger view)...in the "iPad Apps" section...is this what you're referring to?

    I believe you may have been looking at a user manual or guide to the use of Windows Office.

    That's what I am prepared to tell him, but I wanted to make sure, per my previous post. Maybe he's looking at something else.

    You can take a look at QuickOffice HD. I just recently scooped it and really like it thus far. Hunt around for reviews both here and elsewhere to see if it will fit your needs.

    I second that. I too use QuickOffice and that seems to be doing a decent job working with my Miceosoft documents and files.

    Depends what part of Office you want but

    I use Apple's Pages and Numbers all the time. 100% compatible with MS Office equivalents.

    Apple's iWork (Keynote /PowerPoint, Pages /Word and Numbers /excel) works fine on iPad.

    If Office does come out for the iPad will it be just as insanely expensive as it's Windows software counterpart?

    See P.T. Barnum for guidance.

    Not according to rumors but the entire Office for the iPad notion is a rumor. In any event, it's likely to be far less feature laden than the PC counterpart. That, of course, is also true of the iPad versions of Apple's own office apps such as Numbers, and Pages.

    Actually the official news on that is they may price it the same as the Apple stuff ($9.99) per component.

    IMO, Microsoft is a little late to the tablet office game. If they were gonna do this, why not a year or two ago? I'm sure there is still a healthy market for a good office suite but many of us already have one or more components of an office product and are pretty happy with them.

    Let's face it...they're late with everything. They're like that neat guy who's great at parties but he's always showing up just as everyone is going home.

    Try onlive in the app store. Released a few days ago. It puts a mirrored windows 7 on your iPad.
