Platform(s): Android, iOS

Since Microsoft refuses to release mobile versions of its Office Suite, third parties will have to pick up the slack. One such company, CloudOn, Inc. did just that with its CloudOn app. Available for both Android and iOS, CloudOn allows you to create, view, and edit Microsoft Office documents on your iPad or Android tablet. The only catch is you need to be connected to the Internet while doing so, but if you need to handle Office docs, that's a small price to pay.
