It works. That's the highest praise I can give for an app that really does nothing exceptional. It handles all standard Office formats, but does so in a very clunky way. I understand the iPad is not ideal for spreadsheet editing or word processing, but this app truly makes it frustrating. For $9.99, I expect more. Even the aesthetic of the interface is unappealing and dated -- totally inconsistent with most iOS apps. As an example of the small things that fluster -- when using an external keyboard, you cannot shift between editing and scrolling without tapping a new cell. Excel and Word hotkeys and iOS shortcuts are totally gone, except for the most basic ones. The worst part of the app is the saving, uploading, and syncing. It interfaces with Dropbox very poorly. When you hit "save" while editing a file saving to Dropbox, it does not actually upload it until you exit to the menu or go up one level. For word processing, I never use this app anymore. Try another app for 99 cents that is featured in the Apple Store that is a dedicated word processor and you'll be light-years ahead. For spreadsheet editing, I now resign myself to not using my iPad because this app is so incapable. Sorry, DocsToGo, but you really need to improve the capabilities of this app before justifying a whopping $9.99 compared to your competition.

Great for my needs
I have found this app to be perfect for my needs. It does simple documents, spreadsheets, and PowerPoint. I also love that it syncs to Dropbox. I would love some more formatting features in word and to be able to have a selection be read aloud after it is highlighted as many other apps do.

Stays behind
This app fails to open Office docs for me 90% of the time. The company does not keep it up to date. Poor product.

It's been hit or miss with this. I've had great experiences and it's worked as it should, but I've also lost mulit page documents due to crashes, and with the new update, I can't load/sync anything to gDocs. For a company that's made this product for so long, it should be the best on the market, but it's overall unreliable, so it's not worth using. This another review from the April 2013 update. Still terrible. Cannot access my cloud documents at all; app crashes everytime. Tried reinstalling....no difference.

Works but is painful to configure
The app is good about showing / allowing me to work with Excel speadsheets and Word docs, but is painful to select the ones I want to sync. You must navigate the path to each subdirectory and select the files to sync. When you want to select files in a different subdirectory, you need to follow the path all over again, from the highest level to the specific directory. If you have files organized into a number of subdirectories, this is very, VERY time consuming. What is worse, is if Documents to Go experiences a "bump in the road", you need to go through the process all over again. They need to allow you to select subdirectories without having to follow the path from one end to the other. Support is not "nonexistent" but generally takes 7 to 10 days ro respond. If you need this for business, find a different app.
