Lots of attorneys want to be able to work with Microsoft Word (*.doc) files on an iPad, but they don’t know what is available to allow them to do so. There are a number of programs for the iPad that are essentially the equivalent of a mobile version of Microsoft Office.
Randy Singer, one of the deans of Mac legal technology, compiled the following list that he graciously agreed for me to share with my readers. Each of these programs can read, edit, and create MS Office documents on your iPad.
