Documents to Go

by on June 7th, 2010

I’ve had so much fun over the last week with my new iPad and I’ve also spent a few dollars downloading and trying out new apps. One of the apps I’ve downloaded is Documents to Go. I have been using Documents to Go since the “Palm” days and was really happy to see that they finally came out with a version for the iPad. Documents to Go is produced by Dataviz and is a mobile office productivity suite that allows you to create and edit Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint formatted documents on your iPad.

You can create new documents on the iPad, sync with your desktop (PC or Mac) or connect to a few different web services in the “cloud” which enables you to edit your documents and save it back to the cloud. Documents to Go supports these cloud type services:

  • Google Docs
  • Box.net
  • Dropbox
  • iDisk
  • Public Disk (iDisk)
  • Sugar Sync

Document editing is easy and most documents are retrieved properly with minimal formatting impact. The bottom of the screen gives you all of the tools you need in portrait or landscape including formats, spacing, inserts, bookmarks, slide types, formulas, indents, tabs and more. Need to send an email with attachments? You can do that directly from within the app too, you can even pick your outbound email account and it will accept and attach multiple files.

The following bullets highlight some pros and cons for the Documents to Go app:

Pros

  • Create and edit Word, Excel and PowerPoint
  • Several cloud based services for syncing
  • Excellent format compatibility
  • Multiple desktop syncing options
  • iPhone OS document handling

Cons

  • No enterprise network drive access
  • No attachment syncing with email
