Quip was released today. Yes, today. And so we thought we’d get straight to work reviewing the iPad version of this freshly released app, developed by the ex-Facebook CTO and co-founder of Google Maps Bret Taylor, for your reading pleasure.
The app lets you collaborate with other users on projects that you’re working on — it’s a sort of word processor/project manager/ messaging system all rolled into one neat package. Quip also has a lot more features and uses that certainly make it worth your time checking it out. So, when you’re ready, click more to read on.
Apple seem to make almost everything possible, and now word processing doesn’t have to be a mundane task that is confined simply to the office. The iWork suite, which has already found its home on Macs all around the world, has finally been optimised for the iPad.

Typing on the iPad is somewhat of a mixed blessing. Sure, you can hammer out a quick email or two, or maybe edit a quick document, but can you really use it to write a full article?

Writing on your iPad might not be the most productive solution for your ten-page essay, but you may come to a point where, through choice or necessity, you want to get some serious writing done.
Most might just opt for using Apple’s $10 Pages app as it seems like the perfect companion to an iPad but, whilst that’s a great solution, there are some awesome alternatives you might want to consider before diving into a purchase.
