I use the iPad for school. It's great, I have all my text books on it and can use it for almost anything. But there are some short falls that hopefully can be fixed by purchasing the right apps. One major issue I'm having is every document from school has to be in .doc or .docx. That's fine for .doc but there is no option to export in .docx format. Also, many times pages omits parts of .doc documents, which means I must double check every assignment on a pc in order to make sure I don't miss anything. I wish there was an ms office suit for the iPad, but sadly I doubt that will ever happen. But in the meantime can anyone offer ideas on apps that have good ms office compatibility? Because although pages says it's compatible, it only barely cuts it.
