    I need 2 display 2 word documents on my iPad mini 1. Which app can do this?
    If an app can display another format, possibly PDF, I can easily convert the documents to PDF.
    Thanks.

    I think this app called File Notes can but i'm not sure. It seems it can show a Word or PDF file on one side and you can enter notes on the other side (but maybe not another Word file) within the same app. It's free (with in-app purchase for removing the ads) so you could try, i will also try tonight on my iPad mini2. Let me know also when you have news or found another app which can do this.

    That one looks nice. I will also try that one out.

    File Notes does not have a feature to show multiple Word/PDF documents i discovered yesterday night.

    I did found another great app called Easy Annotate which is free but I decided to do the in-app purchase of 4,99 dollar and can now get my documents side by side directly from my Dropbox or Google Drive and the ads are removed. I really like it alot.
