  • You can buy/download the Apple apps (Pages, Numbers, Keynote) mentioned in other postings from the App Store. I have not heard of Microsoft coming out with apps for iOS/iPad but these apps do almost everything those apps do and you can open the files on your PC when saved in a Microsoft format.

  • You can sign up for an Outlook.com (free) account. It has a web version of Office. You can also opt for Google Apps.

    If you want a local option, I recommend QuickOffice HD.

  • As of a few weeks ago, Microsoft released "full" iOS versions of Word, Excel, etc. as part of the their Office 365 membership. So there's a monthly fee, but you get the iOS versions of the app as well as being able to load Office 2013 on up to 5 devices. It's $12 per month as of this time.

    I'd say they work pretty well, but like any new release they have some issues. But for basic functionality it's fine.

  • Yes, there are alternatives for word and excel on the iPad. However, a lot of them a really bad. For word, use 'Pages' and for excel, use 'Numbers'. Don't use anything else. These are the leading, best sellers for alternatives of word and excel for iPad. I highly recommend you get those two. I've heard some rumours about the other apps. It's not looking too good...

  • I'm using Pages for word processing. I have it installed on my MacBook, iPad and iPhone. All three are synched through iCloud. That means I can do some editing on one device and pick it up later at the same place on another device. For me as a writer, that's fantastic!

  • apple apps do their job very well, almost as good as microsoft office, and without (or so less) any compatibility matters. It is even cheaper than the microsoft pac office. Just my point of view.
