    Hi I'm looking for an app for the iPad that will pretty much do word, excel and all that good stuff. Is there one out that that will do that or will I need one app for each task? Any recommendations??? Thanks...

    The iWork suite of Pages, Numbers, and Keynote. There are some others, too. I doubt there is one app that does all within the same app.

    ok but are they compatible with files coming from a PC? This is for a non Mac user.

    There are several suites.

    iWork
    DocumentsToGo
    QuickOffice

    iWork requires that you buy each application individually ($10 each x 3 applications), but the other two integrate word processing, spreadsheets, and presentations into one app. Each has a different feature set, but I've had the most like with DocumentsToGo.

    IMO the absolute best is Docs to Go if you are integrating with MS Office ... great cloud support and excellent ability to open even complex files.
