Hi!
I have had my Ipad2 for about three months now and love lots about it, however I am very frustrated that to date I have not been able to create a document in Pages and upload it to Dropbox, which is my primary goal in having this lovely piece of equipment.
I have downloaded Goodreader. I understood that would work but find it too complicated to deal with in my frantic life. I need it to be simple and straightforward. In fact I have downloaded a number of apps none of which work for me. It's getting expensive!
I truly don't want any more apps at present.
Is there a simple way I can upload a document with embedded pics into dropbox so that I can transfer it to word on my main computer?
I very much hope so, as that was my main objective,

That's in advance, glad to have found this forum!

Hi puanga - obviously from my post count, I am a newbie here, don't have a solution, but feel your frustration. I use Dropbox extensively between two PCs, my iPhone, and iPad, but usually just upload "parts and pieces" (like photos) to Dropbox and then create my final version of whatever on my PC. I do very much like Office HD on my iPad, but have never created a document embedded with pics for upload back to Dropbox. I may need to try that someday, but for now, don't have the need.

Good luck on finding recommendations from the others that meet your needs.
