Best of the bunch
This new release fixes issues on the new iPad! I primarily use Docs To Go for Excel spreadsheets. I find it works better than Quick Office and is far better than Numbers. Numbers is great if you want a pretty sheet and don't care about Excel compatibility. I digress, the things that I like about Docs To Go spreadsheets: 1. Cells locked in an Excel spreadsheet stay locked. This allows you to prevent accidental overwriting of formulas. 2. Supports [h]:mm (times over 24 hours) as well as h:mm format. 3. Supports sheets with frozen panes. In other words you can freeze the title row or column in Excel and it will work in Docs to go. I do wish it was easier to navigate between sheets within a book like the tabs in the other programs. I am posting this in the basic version section due to app store restrictions. However, I use the premium version via in app upgrade.

March 27 update
Thanks for updating. I use docs to go for excel and keeping track of my exercises while I work out. After the update to IOS 5.0 opening docs to go was very slow, as I close it after saving inside excel. However I gave the docs to go excel spread sheet a go around after updating and it is back to normal by opening up quickly again. Thanks for the update. Docs to go is one of my lifeblood apps that is very integral in my life. Docs to go is a cheap way to keep and take care of word, excel and power point. People quit crying the program is not very expensive and works for what promises.

Toolbar gets covered
Why does the toolbar get hidden when you use the onscreen keyboard? It is such a pain to close the keyboard, make a bullet, reopen the keyboard, close the keyboard, indent, open the keyboard...it goes on and on. The Bluetooth keyboard doesn't seem to work either. I am using an apple BT keyboard that works for everything else, but seems to refuse to work for docs to go. Awesome app otherwise! I love the way tire formats the text when you zoom in so you don't have to scroll from side to side to read a page that's zoomed. But, until the toolbar problem is fixed, I don't think I'll be using this app much.

Dropbox makes this great
Forget about the sync app. Built in Dropbox works perfectly and seamlessly. This opens and edits all my docs and spreadsheets, even the password protected ones.

Let me down when I needed it most....
I bought this app years ago when it was the 1st and only MS Office document editor on the App Store. It has always 10x longer than it should to edit a simple Word document. After all these years, it still has glitches and other little quirks that haven't been worked out since version 1.0.... I've sent emails about glitches and the have never been fixed... I finally made the $30 plunge and bought Pages, Keynote & Numbers....That was the best $30 I've ever spent in the App Store! Don't waste your time and money with this app....

Not what I expected
It does most of what it claims. Good for quick last minute fixes on word docs. Allows you to save and email files from dropbox. Con: If the excel file has a formula it doesn't support then it will open in READ ONLY!
