iPhone spreadsheet app

Mariner Software has released Mariner Calc, a spreadsheet application for the iPhone and iPod touch that enables users to view and edit Microsoft Excel files. The program provides a number of functions, with categories including math, finance, trigonometry, statistic, and lookup. The document dates, content or plus-logic information can also be edited, with support for splitting panes, freezing, border creation, font and color customization, or alignment. Users can view documents in either portrait or landscape mode.

Files can be transferred wirelessly to and from a desktop or notebook computer, including multiple spreadsheets and documents containing up to 32,000 by 256 columns. The app supports viewing and editing of Excel files in .xls format, created with Excel 97 and up.

Mariner Calc can be purchased from the App Store for $10.

    So what?

    There is already a spreadsheet available from the APP store called "Spreadsheet" that does this, albeit it only exports an .XML file. When are developers going to create an APP "for the rest of us" that use Numbers? What is that, rocket science? Actually, both of these will shortly be relegated to the history section of your local archive when Documents To Go is released shortly. I got an e-mail from them stating "soon to be released". I had this on my Palm E2 and it handled both Word and Excel files, and was customizable as to which (handheld or desktop) would take precedence when synching, or you could select at "true" synch so both would be updated. I'm amazed it's taken so long to get here, but if it is bug-free it will be worth it. It will spur me to get Office 2008 for my Mini.

    Mac Mini 2.0Ghz, 4Gig Ram, 320 WD HD, dual monitors.

    So you're complaint is that it doesn't support 'Numbers'? Isn't that Apple's job to make that App, not other companies?
