iPad 2 office software choice?

Here I am,half past four and playing with my new toy. An expensive toy I might add, so looking to put it to some use other than playing games and surfing. By the way this site works very well on the pad.

Anyway I am looking for iPad office application reccomendations, I have looked at few but all have varied reviews, if possible I would like it to work with Dropbox but not essential.

Hi geniscant, I too bought iPad2 about 3 months ago, I simply use the apps "Pages" and "Numbers" They work perfectly well for me. I think the total cost was about £14. Unless you are wanting presentation capability it's all you need.

I use Pages and Numbers plus Keynote. Pages and Numbers handle Word and Excel.

Thanks, have bought Pages. I have come across this which I have just set up which enables me to work on documents stored in Dropbox, very handy.

Dropbox app. Have you looked under app store for the app starter kit? This gives a very good selection including iplayer, etc.

I have the Dropbox app but as far as I can see you cannot edit the docs,hence the link to Otixo.
