    While I love Numbers, it is not the best choice if you are going to keep moving documents back and forth between Excel and the iPad, especially using DropBox which takes some workaround to play nice with Numbers.

    Documents to Go is probably your better choice, though others like QuickOffice better. Here are a couple of reviews by other members that may help you make up your mind.

    Compare iWorks, Office 2 HD, Documents to Go, QuickOffice by richsdams

    Office Apps Comparison by RedCoil (details and examples, very long)

    And one member's ongoing experience with QuickOffice HD.
