    Dear friends!
    How do You work with all types of texts and data on Your iPad Pro? Ulysses, Scrivener?
    What else do You use? Acrobat, MS Office?
    10.5 vs 12.9 - what is the most appropriate device for Your targets?

    On my mbp i always use MS Word + Grammarly. I use MS Word a bit on my Air, but once I get a Pro I won't have any access for editing, so I'm gonna have to say goodbye to that app. Ulysses and Pages doesn't have grammar correction, therefor I won't use it! I'm a terrible speller and Ms Word has been the only one helping me with that. If only Grammarly became mobile, I'd happily be using it!

    I think, that there are some addings for grammar and punctuation.

    I use MS Word. It is still free for my IPP 9.7. But, since I already pay for an annual personal subscription for using MS Office on my MBP, it also allows for a second device for free if ever I want to upgrade to an IPP 10.5 or 12.9.

    I'm moving to Google Apps more and more. Unless you want complex formattings, Google Docs works really good, and it is good platform for collaboration. Also, you can download local copy so you can use without internet connection.

    It's very limited though. For instance, Pages can only detect individual misspelled words and you have to manually highlight the word for suggestion.

    Google doc seems very good with grammar on a computer, but I'm having issues with it on the iPad. It marks a lot if words as misspelled but cannot suggest the right replacement.

    Word and Excel are still the standards at my work and with virtually everyone one of our customers that we collaborate with so I have an O365 subscription. Using OneDrive to store projects on alleviates some of the big limitations with file handling.
