In Pictures: The must-have iPad office apps, round 7

The revamped Apple iWork suite changes the game for tablet productivity

Best word processor (tie): Pages Apple's $9.99 iWork Pages is good at layout-oriented documents, and it offers revisions tracking, tables, spell checking, search and replace, text formatting, graphics insertion, and both AirPrint printing and PDF export. The newest version adds ePub export and comment support, as well as multiuser editing via the Web (but with no revisions tracking or file security).

It does have some limits: You can't work directly with documents in cloud storage services, just those in Apple's iCloud. You must copy a file before editing; there's no Save As feature once you begin editing. You can't create or apply character styles, and you can't create paragraph styles.

App: Pages
 Price: $9.99
 (free on new devices)
 Developer: Apple

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.
