    Quickoffice Pro HD – edit office documents & view PDF files

    by Quickoffice, Inc.

    If you want to get the most out of your mobile office, Quickoffice Pro HD is the way to go. The app is incredibly easy to use without losing any of its productive value. Some may even want to ditch their computers and conduct all of their office work on the iPad because of how beautifully this app flows. The ability to create, view, and edit Word and Excel documents make this app well worth the price. The editing tools and features included are phenominal. You can even create, view, and edit PowerPoint presentations, though that area isn't as impressive as the previous two. There is nothing wrong with the PowerPoint editing offered in this app. Keynote just happens to be better at creating and maneuvering through presentations. If you're looking for a single app that does it all, is easy to use, and has a ton of editing features, then pick up this app.
