    word processing app, syncing IOS4 and LION
    I am an amateur novelist. The ultimate goal is to be able to use a word processing program and syncing the work between my Macbook Air running Lion and my iPhone running IOS4. I need to be able to save documents in different formats on my mac, so that I can send them to editors. I have done some research, but don't want to buy a bunch of software to experiment. My thinking is that the current most simple way to do this is with google docs since iCloud is not out yet. Right now I am using open office because it has a really nice thesaurus. I do not have a problem buying pages for both machines, but I don't want to if that is not the best solution. Thank you so much for taking the time to advise me what would work the best. I am new to MAC.

    For now, you can use PadSync and use the word processing apps of your choice. Once iCloud is live (presumably with the launch iOS 5, expected in September?), you "shouldn't" need PadSync anymore, though who knows… maybe it'll still be prove to be more useful.

    Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).
