    I've been looking at adding an iPad to reduce the need to take my laptop everywhere I go but I havnt been able to figure out the right solution to keep everything synced. First I consult with several companies and they all run on Microsoft Office and so do I, my laptop is a Windows 7. Right now I have a jump drive that I use sync toy to keep all the changes update wether I add, edit or delete files on the jump drive from another computer, works great but I have to bring my laptop or utilize a workstation at the company Im working at to get access the files. What I want to do is have the files which are spreadsheets, word docs, .pdf, jpegs to be saved(synced) on the ipad, a "cloud" service and my laptop. Im not looking for a seamless sync even if one of the devices had to have a push button sync it would be great. I dont always have 3g service or wifi when working in the field, or at a meeting but with the documents storage on the iPad everything would be at my fingertips, I want to be able to change 4 different spreadsheets on the ipad and have it show up on the files on my windows 7. I might be missing the obvious, if so please help! Im only looking at a max of 10gb active files at one time and that may be heavy, 5gb would work. Thanks in advance.

    Hi. I found the best app to use for documents and spreadsheets is an app called "docs to go" I have all my files and spreadsheets and pictures on this and all you do to sync is just connect up to your laptop when home and you have all your work in two places then so u have a choice it is so easy to sync up. I have paid a lot of money out on a few other ones but none are as good as this one.
    Hope this helps. :)

    Welcome to the forum! As far as "Cloud" storage, syncing, etc. Dropbox is the favored app/service. It can sync with all iDevices, computers (Mac and Windows), etc.

    With respect to office apps, there are already a number of threads on the subject. These two are the most active:
