Open, edit and save Office documents using your iPad with this extremely useful freeware app

Review Rating: rating

Type: Free for personal use only

Platform: iPad

Manufacturer: CloudOn

Price: Free

CloudOn brings Microsoft Office to your tablet. All of it. Of course you can format text, change fonts and catch that typo, but imagine being able to track changes while editing Word documents, use pivot tables and insert formulas in Excel and present your PowerPoint slides complete with transitions.

Another nifty little feature is the ability to view PDFs (including 3d PDFs) and fill out PDF forms on your workspace! You also have a universal viewer that lets you view virtually any file – from raw Photoshop images to everyday image files like PNG, JPEG and GIF.

With a simple tap you can connect to your Dropbox or Box accounts and have your files magically appear in your workspace! Need to create, copy or move files between folders? Done, done and done! CloudOn lets you do all of that with the ease that you would expect.

CloudOn lets you open Word, Excel, PowerPoint and PDF email attachments directly in your workspace. Throw in some comments, format a picture, do whatever you need to get it right. Then, email the file without ever leaving your workspace. And, breathe easy because your changes are saved automatically – always.

None of your files are stored permanently on any of CloudOn’s servers. They are pulled only when you need them, saved back to your original storage provider and then wiped from our system. Your credentials are encrypted using secure hashing technology and all communication between your workspace and our server is secure using 128-bit/256-bit encryption.
