Editable Documents on Tablets

Hi Everyone

I am currently developing a course that prompts people to complete an action planner document at various points. This document is currently in Word format. My client, however, has requested that there is functionality available to complete the planner on a tablet, specifically an iPad. 

Now, as we all know, Word docs and iPads don't play that nicely together. I have tired various formats (.DOC, .DOCX and .RTF) and it's a bit of a misery to behold. 

I have now tried Google Docs. This IS working but it's a bit of a faff. (You need to create a view only document. The learner has to open it. They then have to select the Google Docs app. Create an account if they don't have one already. Then make a copy of the document so that they can edit a personal copy of it.)

Has anyone found a smoother work around for this? 

Thanks in advance. 

James
