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.
