    Holy smoke folks - I'v been struggling with what to do with sharing my docs between my computer and the iPad. I even wasted the money to buy iWork for my MacbookPro and iPad.

    I heard about this new program on a podcast - and it works great. It's called Office2 HD. Costs about $6. It allows you to link to either your Google docs or your Mobile Me account - and then either copy docs over - or open them directly from you iPad, make whatever changes you want - and then save them back to your mobile me cloud disc. So far very impressed - I think I've found my documenet management solution.

    Thanks very much! I have several files, not including billing, that I would like to work over on the iPad.

    I've been playing with this for the last few weeks. I mainly wanted it for the excel functionality, all my bills are updated in excel. I noticed it really lags though when you start putting formulas in it. I guess I'll have to work on minimizing the file and tabs so I can use it easily on the iPad. I still have a hard time getting to the tools bar to hide rows or columns.

    GoodReader for iPad

    Take a look at GoodReader its .99 cents and will do everything you want, including syncing with google docs, plus much more including the ability to upload documents via wifi to your ipad if your own the same network as your pc.
    Its one of the top selling apps right now for ipad. Highly recommend.

    Hardly new, it's talked about in several post here..... But could be s good solution.

    I have owned documents2go since the Palm days, and use it on my iPhone. On the iPad the iPhone version is just unusable. But, they are in the process of updating it for the iPad. If the update is not what I need, then I will buy Office 2

    It also doesn't work with 2007 versions of MS office. But as far as I can tell, nothing does. Several programs can view 2007 versions of files, but I cannot find anything that can edit them.

    Odd that no one supports Office 2007, which is an open format, but they do the obsolete and propriety .doc/.xls format.

    I'm hoping the Documents To Go upgrade works as well as their other versions. I've been a customer since my PalmPilot days, so of course I had to buy it form my iPod touch.
