In Pictures: The best office apps for your iPad, round 5

In the heated competition for native and cloud-based iOS productivity apps, InfoWorld chooses the winners you should own

The rest of the word processors

Apple's $9.99 Pages is good at layout, and it recently added revisions tracking (though not notes). But lack of support for style sheets makes it unusable in many workflows. Like Quickoffice Pro, Pages supports AirPrint and PDF export.

ByteSquared's $7.99 Office2HD has a very capable word processor, similar to Quickoffice, but it doesn't support text replace, live spell-checking, PDF export, or AirPrint printing, and the suite outside the word processor is slow.

BlackBerry's $16.99 Documents to Go Premium offers only the basics. It's languished for several years, and can't print or export to PDF.

Picsel's $9.99 SmartOffice 2 is, in a word, unusable due to a very poor user interface and limited capabilities

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
