Not the Only Office App
Quickoffice isn’t the first app to allow the iPad to work with Microsoft Word and Excel files; it’s just the latest one.
Apple itself makes a collection of software for working with Office files: Pages, Numbers, and Keynote. And DataViz recently released an app called Documents To Go for the iPad.
