    Well, at $7.99 it is less than the price of Pages & Numbers ($19.98)... and Pages and Numbers are also riddled with bugs right now, it is nearly impossible to open or import Excel or Word documents without some kind of error.

    I am using Office2 HD and it is ok. But I think that office equivalents are the big app weakness right now. Someone has to make an app that will edit Office 2007/2010 files natively and maintain the majority of formating.

    I have had no such issues....so far the only problem I have had with numbers is it closed on me while using it twice....and I use it weekly.

    Are you just not using it and going on something you read or heard?

    I've tried opening about 50 various Microsoft Office documents (2003/2007) on the iPad on several occasions. Heavily formated pages or large documents seem to have the most issues, I've had about a 30% crash rate. With about 10% of the documents not opening at all... and ones that do open can have severe formatting issues. Conversely, when I've saved documents on the iPad and tried to open them in Office the formatting issues still exist, but are fewer.
