Documents to Go for iPad

Sure, new and notable iPhone and iPad apps isn’t a theme, but with so many new and such a large swathe of notable, who needs a theme? Join us after the break to see what’s going on in the iTunes App Store this week!

Documents to Go 3.3

Documents to Go, one of the leading mobile office document creation and editing tools, has gone universal binary which means, for no extra charge, you can now use it not only on the iPhone but on the big iPad screen as well. It includes the same great Excel, Word, and PowerPoint compatibility, but it higher resolution on the iPad, and supports iPhone OS 3.2 for iPad features like inter-app document sharing and iTunes document transfer (which the iPhone should get in iPhone OS 4). They've also added support for SugarSync and iDisk, rounding out DropBox, Box.net, and Google Docs as online repositories where you can open and save back files. Round-trip glory attained. [$14.99 - iTunes]

DocumentsToGo was great for iPhone and now awsome for iPad. I rarely pull out laptop to create and edit Excel & Word 2007 documents. I give huge kudos to DataViz for not charging more $ for previous iPhone users. Other app vendors gouge by charging again for basicly the same app in larger format. Like a popular RSS reader, I will not buy that one again.

What's the difference between Docs to Go and the likes of Pages then?

Wyatt says:

DocsToGo just rocks. I held out for it even though QuickOffice made it to the AppStore first and have never looked back. This new version just rounds out the product. Anyone whose serious about doing real work on the iPhone or iPad should have this app.
@P Grayson, Pages is only for documents and the iPad. DocsToGo is a complete Office suite (documents, spreadseets and powerpoint)that works on both the iPhone/iPod Touch and iPad with lots of extra functions & features not forund in Pages. Plus it's cheaper than buying Pages, Numbers and Keynote which are all sold separately.

Not a regular app. It's our newest app - Faces iMake Creative Craziness !!!
Developed in conjunction with internationally renowned author and illustrator Hanoch Piven, Faces iMake provides you with a huge selection of random objects, the canvas and tools with which to create your masterpiece.
Mac life magazine called it - "Collage art that will inspire both kids and adults of all ages"
Planned for the iPhone but plays wonderfully on the iPad - appsto.re/facesimake
