For iOS users, rollApp has now graduated into public Beta and is offering iOS-compatible versions of OpenOffice.org (now Apache OpenOffice) and LibreOffice. The LibreOffice app seems to have a bit of difficulty opening files stored on Dropbox, but my own tests thus far with the OpenOffice.org app seem to have worked quite well. Although these apps run entirely on rollApp’s servers, and so require a fairly decent Internet connection to function, they do offer extended support for additional file formats (like ODT) not natively readable in iOS.

  1. I am so not satisfied with document production on the iPad. The only real solutions require network access, with no offline editing possibilities. That doesn’t work when you travel by plane, even with G3-4 capability; my iPad is wifi only. So far, I consider text editing the only viable option at this point. There are some nice text editors and one that even groks TeX syntax!
