Do anyone know a app where you can word search for a word in multiple word documents? Also called index search.

Like, search for "dog" and all the documents in the app that have dog in it shows up.

I will first ask a question...

Do you want this app to also be able to edit the documents? Or is read/view only OK?

I ask because it appears that the Box.com app will do it (at least from a brief test). It, however, will only allow you to view Word documents, not edit them.

It does, of course, require you to have a Box account and have your documents on Box (i.e. "in the cloud").
