True iPad productivity and collaboration often requires the ability to not only read but also create and edit Microsoft Office documents, spreadsheets, and presentations. The Quickoffice Pro app does just that, delivering an easy-to-use interface for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint--all optimized for iPad's touchscreen. Recent enhancements include Airprint support and the ability to save files as PDFs. Users can access files via email and a variety of online applications, including Dropbox, Box.net, Google Docs, MobileMe, and SugarSync. File transfer capability via Wi-Fi or iTunes is also included. Quickoffice Pro runs $14.99 in the App Store, but the vendor offers volume licensing for organizations with 50 or more users.
