Can you suggest a Good MS-Office Like APP ?
I am looking out for a powerful office APP which predominanly supports excellent use and editing of MS-WORD, MS-EXCEL and in general all Microsoft Office Applications. I have done my own bit research on it and have come to these two APPS that I think suits me the best But I am now totally confused on which one do I choose between these. Both of them have equal amount of fan following and both of them have equal amount of positive and negative reviews and it is becoming difficult for me to find out which one should I go for.The one's that I have selected are
1. Quick Office PRO HD
2. Documents to go
The Plus and Minuses that I have read about both these Apps are Documents to go has a solid funtionality, support for MS-Word so anyone wanting to work on MS-Word I think Documents to go looks promising. Quick Pro HD in totality is a good APP with very intutive interface.
Many Thanks all of you.

But there are some who believe that Documents to go in terms of functionality, utility is far better in D2GO but in terms of an user experience and ease of use like an true iPad experience it is Quick Office Hd Pro ? I haven't used any of those don't know which one to go for. But just quoting some people who have told me so...

Ok, Let me put it differently. I am mostly gonna be importing .doc and .xls from my computer. So I would prefer that the format of my files especially with .doc if bullets and stuff is used remains as it is and intact when opened in the iPad. So in that sense out of Document2Go and Quick Office PRO HD whcih one keeps the format as it is ?

I also noticed some weird memory full warnings when opening PDFs, big ones indeed, but that has not affected my workflow, since they worked pretty well in the end.
Everything is positive on my end.

Yes, the bullets and layout feels more like I am working in Office than in docstogo.
As for the other Poster re: Everyone, yes Evernote is fine, but not to edit and manage .XLSX and .DOCX files.
I was doing my bit of homework and reading all this while, and what I have been made to understand is QUICKOFFICE has a great UI it is very intutive and easy, It is just perfect and optimised to be used on a iPad. But if you want more features DOCS2GO is the best option but it does not have a UI as good as the QO. Quickoffice lacks in High end features, may have only basic features but has a great UI.
Correct me if I am wrong !

Just as a follow-up, today I tried creating a simple slideshow using Smart Office 2. Let me tell you: what a headache. The default file gives you ten slides, each with the exact same "format" (for lack of a better word). After some time experimenting with it, I gave up in frustration. Smart Office 2 might be (have been) free, but in my opinion, it's not worth the hassle. I have Pages and might purchase Keynote as well.

I have used both extensively. Quick Office has a better interface, but if you want maximum file compatibility, Docs2Go is the best. Quick Office consistently gave me issues with compatibility, often destroying formatting, etc. Docs2Go seems to preserve the original file better. I read a few reviews that state this also.

For presentation, I would recommend Keynote and SlideShark. Keynote renders most ppts well with only a little fidelity loss. It's the best slide program for creating sides as well. SlideShark is great for giving presentations, but that's it.
For word docs, most programs have issues. I have used Quickoffice but it is a nightmare when editing and creating word docs. There is so many issues with file conversion and rendering that it's not worth it for serious doc editing.
I'm happy with keynote but I can't wait to get a real ms word on the iPad.
