Here is a review of some options. I have been using Pages and it works well for my simple needs.

Those are OS X apps... and it appears OP is looking for iOS apps.

I would recommend Pages for iOS, got everything covered for basic needs, and works with a variety of flavors of document types. I'm use it a few times a week, I'm not a daily word processor.

Why not just use Word?

I think Pages is the best one out there right now, give it a try.

Microsoft needs to pull their head out of their ass and make an actual iPad version off Office. They're missing out on a HUGE market.

Microsoft is missing out on $2.5 BILLION per year.

CloudOn is perfect for the job as it runs M/S Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, and it is free.

Pages is the best word processor on the iPad, but there are lots of great text editors for the iPad like Byword.
