    I will be a new ipad user. I want an app that allows me to view documents, create them, edit, etc... I have heard of both godocs and goodreader. Any suggestions on which app is better? I have a google account and use google docs frequently and I know godocs is exclusively linked to your google account.

    As far as word documents go, does Pages seem to be the most advanced app. But it isn't integrated with Google Docs, so you would have go import/export documents via email.

    I use docstogo for syncing to my google account. But you have to have the premium version which is like $15. It works great though, reads and creates files compatible with ms office 2007 and 2003, which is why I chose it. not many apps that read ms office 2007. Pages is definitely not the app for google docs.

    GoodReader is a great app for downloading, uploading, organizing, and viewing many file types. It also has some decent pdf annotation features. What it will not do is create or edit Google Docs, or any other office type program.

    It is worth getting, a kind of iPad file multi-tool, but it has nothing to do with Google's apps.
