QuickOffice, Box.net Updated -- Now Play Great Together


You may want to look at HyperOffice for iPhone. A mobile office web app. Rather than bundling third party tools, it has its own tools for mail/calendar/contacts synching, task management, document access and collaboration, workspaces etc.

QuickOffice access to google docs pretty much solves the storage problem. You can upload all sorts of documents to google docs without conversion. This means those seldom needed PDF manuals that you never have handy are always close at hand. And the spread sheets that you share with company members can be edited from anywhere.
QO has been aggressive with the upgrades. Its well worth the price for business use.
My only complaint is that the last upgrade quietly dropped my passcode lock which I didn't catch till some days later.
