I'm trying to decide on which writing app to purchase. I have looked at
-docs to go
-pages
-quick
-office something

I'm totally confused now. Please someone help me with my decision. I must have spell and maybe grammar check. I hope to use all three features equally (word, excel and power point). I'm a new apple user so I have basic PC experience. I've never own an apple product other than my old iPhone 3. Please respond as soon as possible.

pages+goodreader+dropbox+evernote do me very well on the note taking side of things.

evernotes presentation could be a little more streamlined or at least offer it.
page is really nice for creating documents quickly. then export to my dropbox as a pages file and/or a pdf file.
in GR (linked to dropbox) i can then edit the pages file via opening it pages then exporting to my free webDAV account (linked to dropbox) or annotate it via GR as a PDF.

All this is synced to my dropbox on my mac/iphone/ipad AND i also have a few copies of the documents in icloud for good measure.

Could you expand on this please.

I'm trying to sync Pages with Dropbox but the "Share and Print" options do not include Dropbox :confused:

Sign up for a WebDAV account. I used a free one from otixo.com and it's been brilliant so far. Then just punch those details int pages.

Thanks.

For anyone not familiar with this, there is a good article here which explains how it works and how to integrate webdav with dropbox.

(the example uses other webdav providers, but I signed up to Otixo as suggested, which works seamlessly)
