A versatile productivity app should integrate nicely with a variety of cloud services, not just iCloud. Take CloudOn, which lets you use Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint on your iPad to create, review and edit files. In addition, you can delete, rename and manage documents with a Box, Dropbox, Google Drive or SkyDrive account.

Two more options: the free Onlive Desktop, a virtual Windows desktop for the iPad that comes with Windows versions of Word, Excel and PowerPoint; and Dataviz's $17 Documents To Go Premium, which works with the same big three Office apps, and also lets you view, edit and sync files from Google Docs, Dropbox, Box and SugarSync.
