The Profectus suede leather wallet/cases for iPhone 4/4S and 5 are slip-in style cases that include room for two cards. The cases, which provide a snug fit for the iPhones, are as soft and pliable as butter.
UX Write for the iPad is an excellent word processor for the iPad and includes Dropbox support. Last summer, it was reviewed by The Mac Observer and given a Solid rating. Since then the author has continuously improved this app, and now it includes the ability to export in the .docx format.
