    Search for Documents to Go. Docs2Go is just a common abbreviation. Not sure where it came from.

    Nothing even remotely close to Word for the iPad.

    If you want a nice word processor to create good looking documents Apple offers a simplified version of their Pages program for ten bucks. It's designed for a touch screen.

    If you want to edit Word or other Office documents then Documents To Go is pretty good, but be aware that none of the programs that can edit Office documents support all the features and formatting of Office itself. Notably, Excel drop down lists do not convert.

    It's 'Pages' and it's reviewed in a link in one of the earlier posts in this thread.
