    I don't need Office often enough to pay the subscription fee.

    I use it and absolutely love it. I used to use the iWork suite but my company uses office so it was a hassle. I would recommend it to anyone....and the $100/year cost is well worth it with the fact that you can share that license with 5 other people.

    I mostly use it for work purposes but I love it. The subscription cost is not a factor plus I can download it on other computers, which is very helpful.

    Don't use it through my iPad. I also have a Surface...Office comes free with it so any busy work I need to do is done on that device.

    I don't. I have Office Mobile on my iPhone for testing purposes, but I rarely use it.

    I don't see the need. I've discovered that the iWork suite on my ipad is a good replacement and is very compatible with Microsoft Office by uploading to Google Drive. I can access my excel spreadsheets and word documents this way on my windows pc or my ipad using the different programs without paying the office subscription.

    I still use google docs for all my typing and spreadsheets. No reason going to office since I never used it on my PC. I do think I will have to use iWork for PowerPoint though.

    No MS office on my ipad, iWork instead on iPhone iPad and on MBP, with iCloud enable so I can pick it up where I left it on any of my Apple devices

    Same here. I have it on my MBP, so if I need to edit docs, I do it there. The cost for the subscription is way more than I want to pay, no more than I would use it.

    I am thinking about getting 365 on an educational discount - $79 for 4 years (less than $20 a year).
    Question for those that have it: do you need to be online to use it?

    You do not need to be online to use it but you will need to be online if you keep you files in OneDrive and not on the iPad if you want to view and edit the file.

    I use and really enjoy it! I haven't been able to replace Office in my life and the subscription covers my fianc and I for a Mac, PC, and two iPads. Editing in the app is pretty top notch and the experience is far better on iPad than the new Google Docs app.

    For those who use Office 365, how do you initially activate it on the iPad? Do you download it from Microsoft or just open it through the individual Office apps?

    I use it on my iPad 4th Gen, not to bad for proofing documents and some light excel work. I only downloaded because i got a subscription from work, so it's free for me. As with Windows and Mac OS X, I don't like Word much but find it easier for to use it for calibration, since everyone else I work with uses it. Excel is a must for me, I find the competition to be only adequate for very elementary tasks.

    Personally I prefer text editors to word processors for writing.

    Did you download it directly into you iPad from a Microsoft link? Or did you just go into the Word app and put your Microsoft account info in?

    I am not using MS Office for iPad, too pricey, but I did need an Office compatible suite and luckily stumbled upon a temporary free deal for OfficeSuite Pro, which is meeting most of my needs (compatibility, speed, ease of use, working with miscellaneous cloud accounts).

    Other apps I tried but didn't like:

    iWorks - beautiful design but modules are huge, very poor Office compatibility, Office docs comversions are slow and lossy, iCloud apps on PC are very slow, Numbers is limited a bit vs Excel. Good if you don't have to collaborate with MS Office users, don't use MS Office file types often, and aren't concerned with storage size.

    CloudOn - probably the best direct compatibility with Office files, even supports macros, but slow start up and needs internet connection to do anything

    QuickOffice - only good for Google Docs

    Olive office - buggy

    I thought about using MS Office, but I have really been happy with Pages, Numbers, and Keynote. I haven't had any issues and if I want to email a document, it allows me to convert it to Word or Excel. That's all I really care about.
