Quickoffice for iPhone
Quickoffice has released its Microsoft Word and Excel editing application for the iPhone and iPod touch, Quickoffice. The software provides users with document spreadsheet editors, along with file access and content management tools. Users have the ability to modify documents in landscape mode, and can insert and resize Excel rows and columns within the application. File-sharing is also available, that enables users to transfer files to and from a desktop using Wi-FI, and can remotely access their MobileMe iDisk account.
Several Microsoft Word document tools allow for font formatting, content selection, bullets, and cut, copy, and paste functions. The software also supports auto-save and auto-restore features. In addition to the Word and Excel editing, users can view iWorks, PDF, and other common media files.
Quickoffice for the iPhone will be on display at CTIA from April 1-3, at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The application is planed to be released in early April for an introductory price of $20. Users will have access to separate applications including an Excel spreadsheet editor for $13 or a Word document editor for $13.
