I have been using Logos for 10 years now and working between a PC at church, an iPad and an iMac at home. Over that time, I have cut and paste my verses, quotes, etc into MS Word and saved it on Dropbox to access my sermon notes from the iPad, iMac and PC.  

I recently purchased a MacBook Air and I am looking at simplifying things.  I plan to use Logos primarily on the MacBook and am considering moving away from MS Word and using Apple Pages or Google Docs.

Any suggestions?  Does Logos work okay with Pages?  Google Docs?

Appreciate the input.

Google Docs. You can access them offline now & importing previous word documents to Google Doc format works great.

I would say Pages, you can open any old word files. and if you need the on the between pc and Mac you can always just say to a SD Card that is formatted to be used with pc not the Apple format.

I use the MacBook Pro with Pages, and a Galaxy tablet save files to .docx and transfer them to Dropbox.

Are you using this for larger academic documents or more for lighter stuff? For larger academic documents, Nisus Writer Pro is hard to beat. Very flexible, powerful, and excellent performance. It also defaults to RTF format, so documents open practically anywhere.

I would second Nathan's thoughts on Nisus Writer. There is a non-pro version that is half the price. It does everything Pages does and more. As Nathan said, the beauty of it is that its default format is rtf, so you are not locked into a proprietary format. It even opens and saves .doc and .docx files better than Pages and most other programs. I have used them all and this is my word processor of choice. It isn't the only one I use, depending on the project needs, but it is usually the first one I go to.

There is Microsoft Word available to Mac as well, I use it and have no issues at all.

Pages is great. If you are creating personal documents using the PBB tool, you will need to use the Word .docx format. I stick with word for that.
