    I am looking for an app to proofread and comment Word-dokuments (student and research reports/papers etc). I don't wan't autocorrection or something, just the ability to comment and manually proofread text documents smilar to the reviewing features in Word. Is there anything like this?

    A while back, I did a test for someone and found that the app Documents to Go can do this. You can edit a Word document and those trackers appear and save in the Word document. Then, you can forward or return the file and the recipient will be able to open it in Word and be able to see the changes (and any editing or tracking remarks).

    I am sure there are other word processing apps that can do this, this one is just one I specifically remember testing. Of course, now I can't find that post (think it was over a year ago). But, maybe it's worth a look?

    Thanks, I will look into that! I've tried Pages and Quickoffice but they only seem to handle the most basic functions of Word.
