  • Documents To Go
    DataViz's £5.99 Documents To Go Office Suite lets you view, edit and create Word and Excel files, and view PowerPoint, PDF, iWork and other file types. The £9.99 Premium version adds PowerPoint to the edit/create roster, and also supports the downloading, viewing and editing of files from Google Docs, Box.net, Dropbox, MobileMe iDisk or SugarSync accounts directly in Documents To Go. The latest version (4.0) delivers speed enhancements, external keyboard support, freeze panes and sort in Excel, multitasking and retina display support.

  • Dragon Dictation
    Nuance's Dragon Dictation is a free speech-to-text app that, the company claims, is up to five times faster than typing on the iPhone's on-screen keyboard. Once your text is dictated and edited (using the voice-driven correction interface), you can send it by email or SMS, copy and paste into other applications — or even deliver it straight to Facebook or Twitter.

  • Evernote
    Available on a wide range of client devices and synchronised in the cloud, Evernote lets you capture, save, organise and search ad hoc information, or 'notes'. There's a free service with a limit of 40MB-worth of note uploads a month, limited file type synchronisation and a 25MB single note limit; the premium offering gives you 500MB of note uploads a month, synchronises any file type and has a 50MB single note limit, plus extra security features.
