    Dear Apple Support,

     

    This is a user-to-user tech support forum. You're not addressing Apple here. You've already posted the question. There's no reason to repeat the post.

     

    There is no version of Microsoft Office that runs on iOS. There are other apps that will allow you to open and edit Office documents, including Pages, Numbers, Quick Office, Documents To Go. You'll need to review the specs to see if any of them include the features you need. I suspect not but, as I've never needed that feature, I can't say for certain.

     

    Best of luck.

    None of the Office-compatible apps I've used have Track Changes - Documents to Go, Quickoffice, Office2 HD, Pages, GoodReader

     

    It's a big ask - the level of compatibility needed with the MS file format would be a challenge

     

    MS themselves are rumoured to be launching Ofice for iPad, which might help

     

    I understand that Google Docs has a tracking feature - it should be worth investigating, and there is an iPad app for it.

    Actually, Documents to Go will do Track Changes.  As far as I can tell, it is the only word processing app with this capability.

    No. I've the same problem - to use a review facility like in word. Unfortunately any apps for iPad has not this facility. If importing a word doc on iPad, there is no  possibility (yet) to see the reviwing or to review.

    Folk, I was somewhat inaccurate when I said Docs to go does track changes.  What it does is DISPLAY track changes.  But you cannot "accept" them or add them yourself.  Obviously this is less useful to those who need to makes changes between various versions of a document.

    Thanks for your valuable input Tgara. i should download Document to go to review track changes.

    furthermore can you please also confirm do we have any third party apps to review\edit track changes in documents? or unfortunately any apps for ipad has not this facility?

    To my knowledge, there is no word processing app for the iPad that permits Track Changes functionality.  Walt Mossberg from the Wall Street Journal says that a new app, OnLive Desktop, will let you work with Track Changes, but I think this app is really a cloud-based PC emulator.  Not sure if that meets your needs or not...

    I have only the Docs to Go Premium with which I can see .docs. with reviewing text.
