You Don't Need Microsoft Office On Your iPad When You Can HopTo
There’s a new app that helps you search, create, edit, and share your files and documents quickly and easily. HopTo allows you to be productive with Word, Excel, and PowerPoint on the iPad. You can also share photos, read PDFs, and access any file you have on an external source. The first time HopTo starts, you’ll need to create a free HopTo account, and then login. Once that’s completed, you’ll be asked to attach your Box, Dropbox, and/or Google Drive account. At launch, Windows users can download and install a free HopTo application. In doing so, users can also access their computer files on the iOS app. This capability is coming to Macs in the near future.
