    I never thought I would like an iPad. Tried a couple of android tablets and they did not feel as polished. I will never give up my galaxy s3 as my phone, but apple has a pretty darn solid product.

    Anyway, my immediate need is for a good office suite. The reviews I read from various sites and in comments vary greatly. Price is not a determining factor. I want to get the best suite that has ease of use and excellent compatibility with Microsoft office. I will need to upload to a cloud service and save it to the iPad.

    After that I am open to any suggestion for favorite or must have software. I already have pocket cloud and it work perfectly so far.

    Thanks for the help.

    Someone must have had a good or bad experience with office productivity apps on the iPad. I don't want to waste money on garbage apps.

    Not sure if an iPad is the best choice for office suites. I would just google reviews if I were you, or the app store has reviews as well.

    Sorry, any time I need MS Office on my iPad I use the Citrix app to log into my work system. I have used DocsToGo for limited purposes. It works really well for what I do, but that's too limited to really give the type of review you're looking for.

    MS Office is coming to iOS "soon".

    Thanks for the replies everyone. I downloaded DocsToGo last night and Pocket Cloud will enable me to reach my desktop anytime for more demanding tasks.
