which app is best for reading Word docs with track changes?

I've noticed track changes/ comments inserted into a Word doc disappear when I open them in Pages. Are there any apps that display these well?

Have you tried DocsToGo? It tracks changes that are done in MS Word.

No it actually shows inserted comments.

See screen shot. I am using the premium one so I don't know if this is the case with all their apps.

No worries! DocsToGo is a great little app. It was well worth the money I paid for it as I use it a lot for work.
