Ipad docs

Does anyone know a good app for the iPad for writing? docs, spreadsheets etc.? Sort of the microsoft office equivalent?

Thank you!

I know it's available on Ipad as well though I use it on my Android tablet and phone but I can recommend Google docs.  It's got a good spell check, better then word sometime, and it can be used online or via the app.  You can use it for word processing and spreadsheets, though I have to admit I've never used the spreadsheet function, but I hear it's good.

I use Polaris Office. It's not free, but cost under 1 Euro. It has a nice spell check as well and connects to Dropbox, Google drive and others.

I reccommend Documents. It's never crashed and is extremely reliable and easy to use - I've written novel-length pieces on it, it couldn't be easier to use. I use the free version which has everything I need but there's also a paid version if there's extra features you want.

Is it the Documents Free (Mobile Office Suite)?

Writing as in documents, writing as in journals or writing as in authoring?   I know you mentioned office, but if its a different approach, a more specific app might be more suitable.

Have you considered Google Drive?

I use an app called DayOne for Journals, which supports Markdown, and can syncronise.
