    I'd have to use it seriously first before I can form a real opinion. I hear it is quite good. As I use office for windows every day, I might have to give this a good look. One wonders if this is too little too late.

    When I opened up the App Store app to look for this, it was on the top banner, so I just clicked that. Do you not see it in the banner? You might have to wait a bit because the apps shown there change every so often.

    Also, these are three separate apps, called "Word for iPad" etc., not "Office...".

    Ammmm... No. There's nothing like that and I'm really think that there's no Hebrew support so that's why it's unavailable in the Israeli edition of AppStore

    Etc I didn't find specific application like 'word for iPad' or something like this

    If you already have an Office 365 subscription at work, this will let you extend your document editing from your desktop to your iPad. But $100 per year might be a bit too stiff for casual users, when there are free alternatives that offer enough of the basic functions to satisfy most folks' needs.

    If you have a microsoft account, and a onedrive tied to it, then you can use the apps in edit mode without paying anything. For example, I just drug several times into the documents folder on my Onedrive. Then I just logged in with my hotmail account info and I could see those files in the office apps. So, presentations and stuff can be played back just fine on an iPad. But if you want to edit, then you need to pay.
