    For those trying to "do real work" on their ipads, there is an iPhone app worth looking at. Docs 2 Go premium. Yes, I know it's an iPhone app, but dataviz never got the memo claiming that all ithings are toys. I tried it and it opens ms office format docs as well as google docs. Once they make an iPad version I'll be all over it.

    I was able to pull word doc attachments from my email and I could have saved it to google docs if I wanted to. The only price is 15 bucks for the app plus staring at it in 1x or 2x.

    Me too, I am not sure about iWorks. Hopefully in the next few weeks DataViz will have a iPad ready app so I can compare.

    I should also admit I have iWork it's just that I already owned docs to go on my iPod touch but rarely used it. I installed it on my iPad to see if it offered more options to create content and it does. I'm hoping that dataviz offers an upgrade path so I won't be faced with paying full price for the iPad version when it comes out.

    Pages does everything I need and more. From short stories to novels I'm covered, it's pretty advanced.

    I'm sure Docs to Go is a bit more advanced, but for most people (99%) Pages will do it fine, and in a much more elegant, user-friendly way most likely.

    I would rather see a Office App for the iPad.

    Is there an app that will allow you to edit google docs in real time, the same way you do on the google website when using google spreadsheets?

    footnotes and basic formatting would be very useful -- and necessary to be even a lite word processor.

    I always preferred Quickoffice on my iPhone. Don't think they have an iPad version yet though.

    I voted a conditional yes. Documents to Go on mobile phones are the best in class. For the iPad it would have to approach Office type functionality.

    Dataviz says the iPad update is coming soon.
