    Office Apps and the iPad

    I know there aren't any currently. Although there was a brief discussion about a OneNote version for the iPad ( the concept makes me giddy - think it could be the "killer app" for the iPad)
    In the meantime I am experimenting with various apps to make my iPad into a work as well as play tool. I'm wondering if others have comments or suggestions regarding apps they've tried and what you've used them for.

    I'll start off, I've been comparing Quickoffice with Numbers for data collection and imputing that data into an Excel spreadsheet. Right now Numbers is my choice because you can make forms to speed data entry. Unfortunately what is missing is the ability to make drop-down lists.

    The free OneNote app is back in iTunes again. I'm going to have to test it out.
    Also, check out the PDFExpert app for pdfs that can be read and annotated.

    I've been working with FileBrowser. It does exactly what I need. I've moved to having music, photos and other shared files on a network drive. Now I can access them via FB without having to sync everything to the iPad.

    You should be able to use Office Web Apps in conjunction with SkyDrive.
