    I'm looking for a simple but useful word processing app. Here's the functions that I need:

    -Basic formatting (bold, ital, etc.)
    -saves files locally
    -also saves files in the cloud (Dropbox preferred over iCloud)
    -saves files as .doc or .docx (at least one)
    -can edit .doc or .docx file (but I don't care too much about preserving complex formatting)
    -doesn't crash like CRAZY
    -no type lag

    Any help would be appreciated. I don't want to waste money buying 50 apps to find the right one. If you want, feel free to list any pros/cons you see with the app you use. I prefer to hear from those who actively use the app they're recommending but all suggestions are appreciated.

    Pages is the best, by far. I use it on both my ipad and MacBook Pro for writing my novels. Well worth the money.

    Thanks! I don't think Pages exports to .doc format. Can I open a pages file in MS Word for Mac? What about Word for PC?

    Pages exports in .doc format. Get it. You won't regret it.

    Word does not exist for the iPad, and despite rumors, we have no idea whether it ever will be.

    Looking at your wishlist, Pages covers it all.

    Does a Pages show tracked changes in a word generated document?
