Quickoffice Mobile Suite for iPhone First Impressions

Yesterday we posted that Quickoffice Mobile Suite was (finally!) available in the iTunes App Store. Well, our good friend Matt Miller from sibling site NokiaExperts went one step further and provided a great overview via his ZDNet column.

After a couple hours of usage, I have to say Quicksheet is quite good while Quickword needs a couple of immediate updates.

Why does Matt feel this way? Check out his complete post for details as well as a comprehensive image gallery and video.

Do You Ever Leave Positive iTunes Reviews For iPhone Apps?

We know our readers are far too savvy to ever fall victim to the "greater internet ****wad theory", but a couple posts today made us stop and think about App Store reviews, how the system works (or doesn't), and whether we ever take the time to leave positive reviews for developers of our favorite apps, or just tear off in a fury when we think we've been badly done by?

Tweetie for Mac Shows Where iPhone Twitter is Headed?

We generally don't cover Mac or Windows news on the site, even though most people who have an iPhone will at some point plug it into a laptop or desktop. And we almost never cover software that isn't directly involved with that plug in connection. Why the exception? Tweetie for Mac began as Tweetie for iPhone, one of the most popular and robust iPhone Twitter clients in the App Store, and as much as the iPhone version set the foundation for Tweetie for Mac, it looks like Tweetie for Mac rebuilt that foundation for the next iPhone release.

ngmoco Unveils StarDefense for iPhone

ngmoco just sent over their latest trailer for StarDefense, coming in May for the iPhone and iPod touch, and we've uploaded it to YouTube and embedded it above for all to enjoy.

In Star Defense, players take control of the captain's chair and travel to a series of planets invaded by alien S’rath forces. Twisting and spinning complete 3-D planets, players must examine the terrain to plan tower defenses, selecting from a broad range of turrets that unleash everything from burning hot plasma to high voltage decimation. With seven planets, five upgradable tower types and three difficulty levels available at launch, Star Defense will challenge players of all skill sets, from sci-fi fans to tower defense champions.

If this really combines the skills of ngmoco with the addictive qualities of tower defense, we're already predicting a massive slowdown in postings here as we play review this baby for hours on end.

Screenshots after the break!
