A document program is a must-have for any educator who plans to use their iPad for instruction purposes. There is a multitude of these programs available for the iPad and it really comes down to preference and the features required.
A personal favorite is Quick Office Pro as it allows you to not only open and work with Microsoft Office programs, it also allows you to open and save documents to a variety of locations. You can save locally on the iPad’s memory, but you can also connect it to Google Drive or Dropbox which allows you to easily work on files both on your iPad or on your desktop.
