In Pictures: The must-have iPad office apps

Microsoft Office does its best to challenge the reigning Apple iWork.

The rest of the iPad word processors DataViz's $16.99 Documents to Go Premium offers the basics, but no more. A recent update made it run slower and added none of the key missing features: graphics insertion, paragraph styles, and revisions tracking. Its only advanced feature is its extensive support for cloud storage, including iCloud.

Google's Quickoffice (free with a Google account) remains a midlevel word processor if you edit local files, but its functionality is too limited for cloud-stored files.

Artifex's $9.99 Smart Office 2 is, in a word, unusable due to a very poor user interface and limited capabilities. And accessing cloud storage requires signing up for spam.

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.
