Additionally, the use of a similar service provides for the need for access to the internet quality, an option not always available.

Re: How to use OpenOffice on iPad
iWork app is very beautiful in its interface and of course, perfectly appropriate for the iPad. But 3 separate apps and thus possibly switching, limited browser capabilities file, cloud processing is limited (not dropbox). So in that case i tend to Quickoffice HD, but doubt. Keynote can sometimes be important and that I must still be purchased. This is the one I should consider and then the price difference is zero (4 Euros). Exchange within text and spreadsheet, rarely, so I will not miss. Both do not work with ODF files (I would really appreciate it).
