What's a good alternative to Office on the iPad?

stephenb

Office is apparently not coming out this year for the iPad. I would prefer to stick with Office, since that's what I've used for years and my desktop is a Windows PC, but since that's not happening for a while, what is a good alternative productivity suite?

I use Apple's iWork apps. You can get Pages, Numbers and Keynote for your iPad.

They work great for me.

I think QuickOffice is pretty good. It handles Word docs fine, and you can access password protected Word docs. I would rather have Office, but QuickOffice works well enough for most things I would do on a tablet.
