If you’ve got an iPad, you’ve no doubt found it to be a decent replacement for a netbook, in addition to being a tablet. One good use for a netbook is creating and editing text documents. I’ve yet to break down and buy any of the iWork apps for my iPad because to be honest, I’m cheap. Between OpenOffice and Google Documents, I haven’t paid for an office suite in a very long time. I figured if was patient enough, a good free one would come to the iPad eventually. My patience, it seems, has paid off.

Yesterday Google announced that they would be releasing both Android and iPad versions of their Google Documents suite sometime in the next few weeks. These versions will allow for full editing of documents, as well as the collaborative functions seen when using them on desktop operating systems. I’m definitely glad I held off.
