Documents To Go Premium – Office Suite: Another Option for iPad Users
The Documents To Go Premium – Office Suite app ($16.99) from DataViz, Inc. is another well-established app that offers document and file compatibility with Microsoft Office. This single app is designed to offer the same core functionality and features you’d get using Microsoft Office on a desktop or laptop computer, but it’s designed for the iPad. This includes the ability to create, view, edit, print, and share Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents and files.
This app also makes it easy to share (import/export) Office-compatible documents and files via email, or one of several popular cloud-based file sharing services, including Google Docs and Dropbox. Documents To Go Premium – Office Suite also comes with free software for a PC or Mac to make file syncing and transfers within a wireless network easy.
Like Quickoffice Pro HD, the Documents To Go Premium – Office Suite app has its own unique user interface and menu layout. However, once you become acquainted with the layout of the app, you’ll be able to utilize many of the same tools and features you’re used to when using Microsoft Office on your PC or Mac. The app supports Office 2007, 2008, and 2010 version files and documents.
Documents To Go Premium also offers the “InTact Technology” feature, which helps to automatically compensate for formatting incompatibility when a file or document is transferred from a computer to an iPad (or from an iPad to a computer), and a font or typestyle incompatibility issue (which will impact document or file formatting) arises.
When visiting the App Store, you’ll discover several versions of the Documents To Go app. Only the Documents To Go Premium – Office Suite edition allows you to create, edit, and view Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and PDF documents and files, plus utilize a handful of cloud-based file sharing services. The less expensive version of the app does not allow you to edit or create PowerPoint-compatible files, for example, and has other limitations. Both versions, however, are compatible with Apple’s iWork software.
