    What is the best app for excel and word docs for iPad. Need something for editing and creating. Main purpose is for work.

    Thanks.

    There are a few decent choices around. Quick Office and Documents to Go have been around on mobile platforms for many years. Office2 HD is a nice one with connections to Google Drive and Dropbox plus ability to edit the two file types you need.

    Apple's own iWork apps, Pages and Numbers can import and export in Word and Excel formats. They're both very nice apps but you may find more formatting and similar compatibility detail type issues with these.

    good luck with trying to get the ipad do everything natively. (as if you were on a windows machine), i know i could never get it to
    work right.
    and if you do get it to work right let us know. i'm dying to find out which app will do it.

    Oh, two other good options are CloudOn and OnLive Desktop - which offer access to shared Windows virtual machines running latest Office versions.
