Oh my. CloudOn is finally available on the Apple App Store. CloudOn, in case you don’t know brings true Microsoft Word, Excel and Powerpoint to an iPad. It is fab. I downloaded it, setup an account, and attached to my Dropbox (you can also do Box.Net).

I know it’s not the same as running an app natively on the iPad, so don’t get me wrong I’m saying "Oh look, Office running on an iPad".. but it’s pretty close.
