One of the better iCloud or Dropbox synced text editor, and the one that I use is on sale for $0.99 for the Universal version. It’s a great app for keeping text documents synced over iCloud or Dropbox on the iPhone, iPad, and OS X desktop. Highly recommended.

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Last month Google introduced the ability to edit Google Docs directly from your iOS device. While the feature was welcomed by many users, they also quickly found it to be rather limited, and not really a true Google Docs experience. That issue has now been rectified, at least on the iPad, as Google has updated their service to allow for full desktop editing control on the tablet. This includes the ability to change fonts and formatting as well as insert formulas and tables, just like you can with your home computer.
In order to access the service users must first mosey over to the Google Docs homepage via the iPad’s Safari browser and then sign in as usual. You should then see all your docs pop up just like they always do and you can begin editing, formatting and doing all the other things you’re accustomed to doing on your home computer. One word of warning though, Google is reminding everyone that the browser editor still isn’t as powerful as the PC version so some bugs, glitches and other hiccups are to be expected. Folks experiencing troubles are also invited to head back into the standard mobile version, as it is specifically built for iOS devices.
When the mobile version of Google Docs launched, we were already excited – this news only sweetens the deal. While it’s nice to be able to edit documents and spreadsheets from our devices the service isn’t exactly all we dreamed it would be. Now, with this new browser version we get all the tools we’re familiar with easily accessible on the iPad. Once the bugs all get worked out we may never need to access Google Docs from our computers again, what a glorious day that will be.
While Apple was undoubtedly first with their top quality office productivity apps for the iPad, I hear they had an inside advantage, Documents To Go and QuickOffice haven’t been but a couple months behind.
Documents To Go was updated recently to a universal version — meaning it’s optimized for both the iPhone and iPad. So if you had the iPhone version, you would get the iPad version for free. QuickOffice decided to take a different route. But, what they’ve added may make it worthwhile.
Released just earlier tonight, QuickOffice Connect Mobile Suite for iPad has all of the features of the iPhone version, but rather than just expand all of the on screen controls to allow the app to fill the screen, QuickOffice have made redesigned it somewhat to take advantage of the iPad with newly redesigned controls.
QuickOffice have made it clear that they are not done innovating and adding new features to this app. And I look forward to see where it goes. QuickOffice for the iPad is available now at an introductory price of $9.99.
