Default What Office Apps Do You Use on Your iPad?

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.zdnet.com/blog/mobile-gadgeteer/2011-ipad-office-apps-showdown-who-says-you-cant-work-on-the-go/4819' target='_blank'>http://www.zdnet.com/blog/mobile-ga...-on-the-go/4819</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"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 Appl</em>e."</p><p><img height="123" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/wpt/auto/1302277750.usr105634.jpg" width="600" /></p><p>You can read the original article <a href="http://www.zdnet.com/blog/mobile-gadgeteer/ipad-office-app-showdown-four-apps-to-help-you-get-work-done/3445?tag=mantle_skin;content" target="_blank">here</a>, 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 (<a href="http://click.linksynergy.com/fs-bin/click?id=VoxLcfp5Si4&amp;subid=&amp;offerid=146261.1&amp;type=10&amp;tmpid=3909&amp;RD_PARM1=http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/pages/id361309726?mt=8" target="_blank">Pages</a>, <a href="http://click.linksynergy.com/fs-bin/click?id=VoxLcfp5Si4&amp;subid=&amp;offerid=146261.1&amp;type=10&amp;tmpid=3909&amp;RD_PARM1=http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/numbers/id361304891?mt=8" target="_blank">Numbers</a> and <a href="http://click.linksynergy.com/fs-bin/click?id=VoxLcfp5Si4&amp;subid=&amp;offerid=146261.1&amp;type=10&amp;tmpid=3909&amp;RD_PARM1=http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/keynote/id361285480?mt=8" target="_blank">Keynote</a>) as the winner due to the functionality, although it is expensive. A close runnerup is <a href="http://click.linksynergy.com/fs-bin/click?id=VoxLcfp5Si4&amp;subid=&amp;offerid=146261.1&amp;type=10&amp;tmpid=3909&amp;RD_PARM1=http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/quickoffice-pro-hd/id376212724?mt=8" target="_blank">Quickoffice Pro HD</a>, which he says is&nbsp;<em>"visually as good as iWorks, missing some functions in word processor, excellent cloud support." </em>The article is well worth reading, especially if you are trying to find an application for your iPad, and you may find that his <a href="http://www.zdnet.com/blog/mobile-gadgeteer/2011-ipad-office-apps-showdown-who-says-you-cant-work-on-the-go/4819?pg=5&amp;tag=mantle_skin;content" target="_blank">summary</a> gives you just what you need in order to make a decision. I'm curious though, what do you use on your iPad?</p>
