    Can anyone suggest for me a word processor for the iPhone 6 that meets the following criteria:

    *is relatively cheap
    *can save documents in doc or docx format
    *can save these files directly to phone storage and can be synced back and forth from within iTunes. I do not want my docs synced to the cloud.

    I own Docs To Go because I had used it for so many years on BlackBerry, and while it meets my needs otherwise, it is presently unusuable in landscape mode on the iPhone 6, so I apparently need to try something else.
    Thanks folks.

    Sorry folks, tried those. MS Office on iOS is strictly cloud save only as linked to a Microsoft account, and as for Pages, unless I missed sonething it doesn't let me save files locally either (not to mention I actually think it's interface is awful and messy.) At any rate, thanks for replying.

    Pages can transfer through iTunes without iCloud. http://support.apple.com/kb/PH3567

    Can't help with your interface preference though. There are tons of office apps, not sure which were updated for the 6 yet though

    You could try Quickoffice. Although I'm not sure they are still around since Google bought them a while ago.

    I've been using "Documents to Go" for a while and, in my opinion is the best Word processor.

    Of course could be a little cheaper, but gives you full MS Office features.

    hope it helps!

    I don't know about pages... I have probably used it like once or twice... i say Open Office, which is a good alternative to Microsoft Office. Also, Libre Office is a good option . Happy downloading

    Documents to Go is a great app and links into DropBox and other cloud services if that helps.
