    I use LebreOffice on my iMac all the time. Mostly for spreadsheets. I have finally convinced myself that I can't live without an iPad. However, if I read correctly, there isn't a way to use LebreOffice on an iPad and there isn't an app that comes close to being as useful. I'm going to be traveling soon and will need access to my spreadsheets. Any advice would be appreciated.

    Does Apple's Numbers app work with your spreadsheet?

    Good Question

    I'm not sure. It's worth a try. I think I have Numbers on my iMac. Thanks.

    FYI Apple did extensive changes to Numbers recently, they actually removed some features in the update. On the plus side it's now feature equal on both OSX & iOS.

    I just confirmed that I do have Numbers on my iMac, but at first glance there doesn't seem to be a way to simply open my spreadsheet in this application. Were you thinking I would recreate the spreadsheets in Numbers? Thanks.

    Does LebreOffice have a way to export the spreadsheets to Numbers or to Excel?

    I don't know but that's a good thought. I'm rather new at LebreOffice and haven't explored all its possibilities. Thanks so much for your help.

    Assuming he meant LibreOffice, then yes, you can save to Excel format.

    I think apple is doing the right thing with numbers by trying to reimagine it to have a better work flow.

    I use Google Drive for spreadsheets on the iPad. Works quite well, and could very well support LibreOffice spreadsheets.

    Google Drive also will sync to server when it's online, meaning the newest is on all your systems.

    And it's free.
