iPad word processor

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Can anyone recommend a good word processor app for the iPad. I need it to take notes. I have no problem typing on it but all the free apps kind of suck. I don't mind paying for it but I want to know I'll be getting a good one first. Only requirement is that it allows horizontal view/typing. It would be nice if it had google doc or .odt file format output.

I use pages. I know its a bit pricey at $9.99 but its really the only well thought out word processor. If your looking to take quick handwritten notes penultimate is great as well. inClass is free and pretty damn good for taking notes as well, it just lacks features but will work well if all you're doing is taking notes in class. Give that a shot before buying anything.

EDIT: Also if that Ferrari logo is for support of Scuderia Ferrari F1, we may have a fight on our hands...just kidding haha.

Yeah I'm using documents now but the interface is really really basic and it doesn't work so well. You can't save without exiting the document and the googledocs upload doesn't always work. If I could find something good enough I might even type papers on it. I'll try some of the others you suggested.

Also I was quite disappointed to see Hamilton on the podium at the Australian GP and not Alonso.

I hear pages is alright. It gives nearly the same function as word.

Ok so I got Doc2HD. I really like it so far. I chose it over pages since it sounded like it was more compatible with microsoft and open office. The free ones just didn't cut it.
