CloudOn for iPad Launches in the UK

CloudOn has been around for a couple of months now… in the US. In the last week it has now launched in the UK and brings Excel, Word and Powepoint to the iPad.

The application is free to download and when installed, it connects up to your DropBox account (also free) so that you can have easy access to your documents and spreadsheets whilst on the move.

After a few minutes of testing, the CloudOn app seems to be one of the best apps available for editing Word and Excel files as it uses an official version of Office which is connected to remotely. The service runs in the cloud which means to access it, you’ll need to be connected over 3G or Wireless. When documents are saved, they are update on your DropBox account automatically so you can resume editing when you get back to the desktop or any other device.

Use Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint on your iPad to create or edit documents.
Rename, delete and manage documents with your Dropbox account
Display, edit or create charts, change formatting, spell check, insert comments, into any Word, Excel or PowerPoint files
Track changes while reviewing Word documents
Use pivot tables and insert formulas in Excel workbooks
Display and edit animation or transitions in PowerPoint presentations
Present in full PowerPoint mode (not in PDF)
Open files directly from your iPad email accounts or Dropbox account
Automatically save documents to avoid losing changes

Overall, an impressive bit of software and well worth downloading if you need to access and edit those types of files while on the go.

Available in the iTunes store now.
