Architecture Review Board

March 20, 2013

  1. MS Office Editing Tools for iOS Devices
    We were asked to review 2 cloud-based editors, Astral Pad and CloudOn, for the iPad. Both apps are currently available for free and work ok on the device. AstralPad has the added feature of integrated video collaboration which we tested. Both apps work with third party cloud storage providers, including SkyDrive, DropBox, and, in the case of CloudOn, Google Drive. Based on the integration with Google Drive, we would recommend CloudOn as the preferred app for state users. CloudOn is also available for Android devices.
