A New Take on the Spreadsheet. Permanent is designed to make spreadsheets usable with touch. You can Sort, Move, Fill---all of the actions you're used to performing in your old spreadsheet---using gestures specifically designed for touch. If you already know Microsoft Excel™, then you'll have no problem using Permanent. An iPad spreadsheet so good you'll use it at work.
Features You Expect. Permanent supports all the spreadsheet features you would expect: Number Formatting, Formulas, Borders, Fill Colors, Merges, Text Styles, Freeze, et cetera. Permanent also supports some features your old spreadsheet might not have had, such as reordering columns or rows. Copying and pasting data between Permanent and your other applications works seamlessly. Permanent supports printing on all AirPrint compatible printers.
Support for Office® Documents. Your existing spreadsheets will work with Permanent. Permanent is compatible with Microsoft Office or Microsoft Excel spreadsheet files. You can open and edit XLSX files directly without changing the format. Permanent is compatible with XLSX, XLS, CSV, TSV, PMT, and more. Permanent also allows you to preview Adobe® PDF, Word® DOC, and DOCX files.
Cloud Support. Permanent supports opening and editing your files from your favorite cloud services. Unlike other spreadsheets, you aren't limited to one service. Saving happens automatically. Edit your files and the changes are immediately reflected in your cloud account. Select files as you would normally via Permanent's file browser. Permanent supports Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive/SkyDrive, and Evernote. You can also export files via Email or by saving to iTunes.
Permanent is free. Formulas and nearly all features are free. Most people will never need the Pro version. Some features (Dropbox, OneDrive, Email XLSX) are available by unlocking Permanent Pro via In-App Purchase. Existing Permanent 1 customers upgrade to Permanent 2 Pro free (app must be installed).

Impressive software (and developers!)
I wanted a simple spreadsheet for on-the-go diet logging, and Permanent turned out to be way better than I was expecting. It is designed specifically for touch screens, so it works really well on the iPad (I'm using a mini).
I have to call out the great responsiveness of the developers: I used their in-app support screen to ask some questions, report a bug and ask for a new feature - and they emailed me back with responses to all these within the hour (by which time they had already fixed the bug, ready for the next update!). These guys seem really sharp and customer-focused. I see great things ahead for this software and whatever they release next!
[EDIT: all of the above still applies several months and many great updates later!]
Seems like a good app but your files are in jail until you pay ransome
Despite the innuendos and half truths in marketing info, the files cannot be exported/ shared without paying a fee. The only format you can share is their proprietary format that is useless outside of iOS environment.
I have rewarded the developers forthright by deleting the app and not looking back.
This is the best spreadsheet app I've found. Very user friendly. Easier than Excel!
