    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?

    Create a MS account if you don't have one, sign in, and click Create at the top.

    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.
