    "A simple to use app with great user interface. It definitely has it's issues though. Many of the features will work only some of the time and can be a bit annoying to have to fiddle with if you need to get something done quick. While it might be easy to use, there are better processors out there."

    "Google docs does work on your ipad (I use it all the time when I'm out - my ipad is my go-to instead of carrying around a laptop). I even use it to work on papers with colleagues. I would say that it can be a little persnickety, in that it doesn't do everything that I want, but it is getting better all the time. They roll out new features every few months and it's getting really easy to use. My favorite part is not having to hit the save button - it saves what you write automatically (never lose a word!). "

    "Totally impressed! There's so much functionality with Scrivener. It has been a total lifesaver for someone on the go like me. I don't know how I lived with out this these past few years. There is a bit of a learning curve, but once you pick it up you're golden."
