Tired of waiting for Microsoft to release a native version of Office for iPad? Unhappy with either Office Mobile for iPhone or Office Web Apps? Well, give Google's Quickoffice Pro HD for iPad a shot. It lets you create, edit and view Word, Excel and PowerPoint files (versions 1997 through 2010), as well as save files as PDFs, print using iOS AirPrint, and open, edit and save files from SharePoint. So where's the "cloud" angle in all of this? The $20 Quickoffice Pro HD works with a variety of cloud services, including Google Drive, Dropbox, Box, SugarSync and others.
