  1. This WAS a great app until this update. I love the fact that they made the app Universal binary for the iPad, but the iPad version doesn't have the MS Exchange support available. For me, that is a deal breaker. I use this app primarily for work items that I retrieve from our exchange server. This app how now become virtually non-functional for me personally.

    Great app, but don't buy if you use MS Exchange until they release another update fixing the lack of exchange support on the iPad. (this is still a great app on the iPhone, just it's not very easy to edit excel files on such a small screen).

    Keep up the blog! I like how your articles are written and they are very informative.

    1. Thanks for the kind words.

      I've never used the app (don't need to work with MS Office apps) – but I thought the standard / premium separation had been around for a while, with Exchange support coming only in premium version. Have I got that wrong?

    2. Hi,

      They are saying the attachments feature has been left out of the iPad version because it is not required as the iPad supports loading attachments in the mail app.

      Apparently you can open attachments into Docs2Go in the mail app.


      1. Ian:

        This may sound dense, but when I attempt to attach a document or picture to emails that I am writing from my iPad, I can not figure out how to attach these items. Is there some method for doing this? thanks

          1. Generally, you do things 'backwards' to achieve what you're after. As in, when working on a document, you choose to email it from within the app being used – you don't use the Mail app and then try to add an attachment.

  2. Lots of complaints about the missing Exchange support on the iPad. I bought the Premium version and the option to set it up is missing in the options. I'll have to look and see if that option is there on the iPhone later. Thankfully I don't need the feature at this time, but I'd be rather upset to see it omitted if I did.

      1. I just took a look and the Exchange option IS present when running the same version on my iPhone.
