Lots of attorneys want to be able to work with Microsoft Word (*.doc or *.docx) files on an iPad, but they don’t know what is available to allow them to do so. There are a number of programs for the iPad that are essentially the equivalent of a mobile version of Microsoft Office.
Blogger Randy Singer at www.macattorney.com compiled the following list that he graciously agreed to let us share with our readers. Each of these programs can read, edit, and create MS Office documents on your iPad:
OfficeSquared from ByteSquared (www.bytesquared.com)
Documents to Go from DataViz (www.dataviz.com)
QuickOffice from Google (www.google.com/drive/apps.html#quickoffice)
OpenOffice on iPad from RollApp (www.rollapp.com)
Textilus by knowtilus (twitter.com/knowtilus)
UX Write by UX Productivity (blog.uxproductivity.com)
Pages from Apple (www.apple.com)
iWork for iCloud (beta) (www.apple.com/iwork-for-icloud)
Thanks to Buffalo, MN attorney Joseph Bazan for this tip, which he shared via the solo/small listserv.
