    Hi, I'm new to this site and something of a novice when it comes to Apps of any description!

    Anyway I'm searching for a good Word App, something along the lines of Microsoft Word? I have trawled through loads of different apps and have tried some out but can't find one that simply allows me to Create word documents, invoices etc

    Any help or guidance would be appreciated.

    Kind regards

    Rob

    You also can create Word documents with Apple's Pages and CloudOn. I use both.

    There's also "Documents to go", it seems to have acceptable ratings.

    Welcome!

    I've used Evernote in the past for simple word doc creations. Since, I have purchased Pages which has worked nicely on my iPad. I have purchased on my Mac recently for some projects I was working on on my iPad and wanted it to sync to my Mac.

    There's an app that just turned free at the App Store called Wisdom Writer. It was regularly $4.99 and now free for a limited time. I have downloaded it and am impressed. Easy to insert pics, etc. so...have a look at this one and see if it fits your needs:

    I am impressed with it already! Glad it's still free, it seems to be a very good app.

    It is now .99 cents (in the US AppStore), but it is still a great value. I've been playing with it for a little while and it is certainly a lot easier to use than other note apps I own. Thank you!

    A big thank you to everyone who contributed to my query, wisdom writer seems to tick all the boxes.
