TiPb Apps 2.2 -- QuickOffice for iPhone and iPad (Macworld 2010)


Why don't these links ever work when you see the site from the iPhone? This article sucks anyways where's all the info on iPhone 4.0?

I'm thinking about getting this app, has any one used this app yet that can let me know if it's any good???????

It's very good for accessing and editing existing documents, but pretty useless for creating new ones from scratch (depending on design complexity of course). It has very limited colors and text selection is awkward and somewhat uniPhone-like (using 'zoom in' rather than the magnifying glass).
It's frequently updated and getting better each time.
I bought it for $12.99 and although I don't use it very often, I have no regrets. It's nice to have when needed.

works pretty good however google docs fail to update , gets server errors all the time.

I like it except for the flick scrolling on excel is annoying and should be changed. Other than that I like it. Can't figure out the email attachment part.

I'm excited about the iPad version. Wondering how it will compete against the apps Apple is releasing (Pages, Numbers, etc)

lol the guy has a blue laser on his head for a good portion of the interview...anyways, i have the app and now im gonna update it, havent updated my apps for quite awhile. looks like a great update as well.

I hate that I can not just transfer documents to my iphone but with this app I can and I can edit them on the fly. Great for that time in between meetings.

I've seeing the videos on this and Box.net I'm going to try both and see how much easier I can make getting my work done on the move.

QuickOffice has been a godsend since day 1. The sheer versatility and maneuverability is invaluable when you need to do some editing and transportation but don't want to clunk around a laptop. I got it wayyy back at it's $4.99 induction and it's hands-down the best money I spent on an application. I just saw more about the box.net app a moment ago, and I can firmly say that this is a match made in heaven. Also, I think that QuickOffice is really going to give the iWork iPad suite a run for it's money. I love iWork, but these guys have been on top of the game for a while now. Good show guys!

Wow! I'm impressed by the slick, sexy interface. DataViz's alternative is more expensive but perhaps more capable and compatible, though D2G's interface leaves much to be desired. QuickOffice seems to have more of an intuitive, Apple-like interface.

Waiting to see who will be first to offer a universal (both iPad and iPhone optimized) set of Office apps at a reasonable price. Apple has the iWork apps but they're iPad only. Can't wait for April 3rd (I hope that's when iPad apps begin to appear in the app store).

It looks very useful, especially with support for services such as Box.net and Dropbox.

I'm not sure how much use I'd get out of Office Editing on the iPhone, but I suspect for the few times I'd need it, it would save my bacon.
