What Office Apps Do You Use on Your iPad?

"Last June I posted my iPad Office app showdown article looking at four available applications. This post has been extremely popular with readers and I have since received dozens of email inquiries for an updated article to see if my conclusions are the same or if there are more choices this year with the iPad and iPad 2 now available from Apple."

You can read the original article here, but with this new article he looks at six different office suite applications you can use on the iPad. His result? Well I don't think it's too much of a surprise that he chooses iWork (Pages, Numbers and Keynote) as the winner due to the functionality, although it is expensive. A close runnerup is Quickoffice Pro HD, which he says is "visually as good as iWorks, missing some functions in word processor, excellent cloud support." The article is well worth reading, especially if you are trying to find an application for your iPad, and you may find that his summary gives you just what you need in order to make a decision. I'm curious though, what do you use on your iPad?

The iPad, It's Not All Fun & Games!

"While television commercials for the iPad highlight all the fun you can have with it--watching HD movies, reading books, and playing games--Apple reminds us you can also use it to get work done."

And to prove it, the folks over at Laptop Magazine have put several productivity suites through their paces. They reviewed iWork for iPad, Dataviz and Quickoffice to see just how well they work on the iPad. Surprisingly, to me at least, iWork was the only one that didn't sync with Google Docs. As prolific as that is, I would think they would have added that functionality to their product. But if that isn't important to you, it has other benefits and you can read all about it in the reviews for each one, just click on the links for each one above.
