In Pictures: The best office apps for your iPad, round 5

In the heated competition for native and cloud-based iOS productivity apps, InfoWorld chooses the winners you should own

Runner-up spreadsheet editor: Numbers

Apple's Numbers spreadsheet editor makes data entry easy, especially around numeric, date, and formula info. The keyboard adjusts based on the type of data you're working with. Excel users may dislike Numbers' approach to creating worksheets; Numbers allows several on a page, which can confound experienced Excel users.

Also, like all iWork apps, Numbers supports cloud storage services such as Box and Dropbox, but messily: You must copy your documents via Open In, which creates version issues. Only in an all-Apple workflow does Numbers avoid this messiness, using iCloud to keep your documents current on all your devices. But it does support AirPrint and PDF export.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
