Office2 HD by byte squared aims at managing word, excel and PowerPoint presentations in your iPad. First off all, we shouldn’t compare this app with the real office applications in our laptop or desktops, ALL of these apps have serious limitations compared to the native Office applications on our laptops. These apps are build mainly for lite editing and viewing documents on the go, and I would never recommend it for creating a great presentation.
This app has a simple UI, which you’ll get used to in a few minutes, and even though some may like it, I’m not by pleased with it. The UI is very similar to the native iOS user interface and I would have been happier if they were a bit more creative.
The editing and viewing is really simple, it renders most of the files well, and editing is just easy. It has a very useful toolbar at the top that allows me to quickly change formatting, and you can import photos and other content into the documents.
Importing and exporting files is excellent with cloud support (most of the major cloud services), it also supports editing files on the cloud.
It may not be the best app for documents, but still, there’s the $8 price tag (compared to Pages’s $10 cost). But even that price comparison is deceptive, since Office 2 HD actually combines not just a word processor, but also a spreadsheet editor, and a presentation editor, too. So this app is really worth your money.
You can download this app for 7.99$.
