At first I had hoped I could use google docs or similar, but that doesnt seem possible. I can connect to my home machine via wifi and LogMeIn and use Word on that desktop, but its a little slow (not horribly) so Im still interested in being able to do some work on the iPad itself. Any ideas? iMac 24" Alum 2.6GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 4G RAM, 640G Mac OS X (10.6.2) Fusion, Parallels, Bootcamp, Win 7...|word-processing-alternative-pages-ipad

its ridiculous I really kind of regret buying an iPad... the Internet is literally cut by like 60%... I understand apples concerns.. but come on now, HTML5 is hardly used on the web. I really cant do much on the iPad at all... no websites with any animation, no games, no videos really... its a serious draw back, and with other tablets coming out that DO offer it its a serious threat to the iPad. and with good reson.. this is a Serious problem.. whats the point of having a tablet that only allows you to use half the Internet?Message was edited by: mrcloudies iPad Other OS...|alternative-flash-ipad

I am new to the iPad and was curious if there was a app that will replace the hardware home button. I googles it but everything I find wants you to jailbreak the iPad (which I do not want to do). I just want an app that allows me to go back and not use the hardware button. It seems a bit flimsy...Thanks for any advice! iPad...|home-button-alternative-ipad

Ive been using this $2.99 app all day and I love it. Check it out in the app store if you are tired of opening and closing windows inside Safari. The tab interface and control you have over this browser is very nice. As close to a desktop browser as you can get without multitasking. It would be nicer if you could replace Safari with this app as the default but cant have it all I guess... 2.66 Intel iMac Mac OS X (10.6.3) iPad 3G 16GB, Pod Touch 8GB, 4G iPod Nano, 5G 30GB Video iPod, iTunes 9.11...|safari-alternative-perfect-browser-ipad

Fortunately Lotus Wordpro (Millennium Edition 9.8, not the current rubbish) can reproduce it, although in the wrong font. Why on Earth cant pages output in RTF ?
