iMore Compare Office Suites For iOS


And the iPad has several excellent office suite options to choose from. Apple’s iWork comes as three separate apps, Pages, Keynote, and Numbers. BlackBerry-maker RIM’s Documents To Go is an integrated, Microsoft-like powerhouse. And Google’s newly acquired Quickoffice Pro HD likewise offers everything all in one place. But which is the best for you and your workflow?

A very in-depth, well illustrated, breakdown of document creation apps for the iPad.

My takeaway is that the iWork competitors really need to hire designers. They look horrible. For instance, Apple includes a styled segmented control for navigation bars, yet Documents to Go opted instead for the “bezeled” style. Ugly.
