Need to get an Excel, Word or Power Point doc going while on the fly? Could mean the difference between a raise at your job or none, even perhaps gaining or losing a client! It's easy to create, edit or view the documents you need for these programs when you use CloudOn for iPad. This is a new app that lets you use the above applications easily, efficiently and just as simply as on your Mac or PC. The layout is almost identical and the files work well in the traditional format with which you are familiar. Some of the helpful iPad Microsoft Office features of this app are as follows:

- Use Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint on your iPad to create or edit documents.
- Rename, delete and manage documents with your Dropbox account
- Display, edit or create charts, change formatting, spell check, insert comments, into any Word, Excel or PowerPoint files
- Track changes while reviewing Word documents
- Use pivot tables and insert formulas in Excel workbooks
- Display and edit animation or transitions in PowerPoint presentations
- Present in full PowerPoint mode (not in PDF)
- Open files directly from your iPad email accounts or Dropbox account
- Automatically save documents to avoid losing changes

On opening CloudOn, you are required to enter your DropBox account info or sign up for a new account as this app must use Dropbox to function. Files will be saved using your Dropbox account. The bonus is that your files are available whenever and wherever you need them.
I tried both creating and editing Word and Excel files. All the toolbars and functions I would use on my computer were available to me, and working with my docs was a cinch. There is a helpful demonstration prior to using the app on where to find the tools you need to get things working. Additionally, the Help center at cloudon.com fills in all the blanks should you have any questions. In reality, CloudOn is rich with features, simple to use and a real bonus to my work habits and flexibility in producing docs at any time.
COOL CONCLUSION: "CloudOn uses Microsoft Office functions to create, edit and view documents neatly and efficiently on your iPad."
