Quick Office for iPhone

Just see on The iPhone Blog that Quick Office have just had their Quickoffice app released into the iPhone store on iTunes.

This steals a march on Dataviz's Documents to Go which is still showing as "Coming..." on their web site, although I believe from an email I received from them recently and posted about , that it's due for a "mid-May" delivery.

Whatever, Quickoffice beats them to it, offering the following long list of features:

Quickword® (Advanced Word Document Processing)
  • Edit & Create MS-WORD Files
  • Intuitively Cut/Copy/Paste text anywhere, including to another doc

  • Enhanced Magnifier to accurately place cursor with ease
  • Extensive text formatting; Bold, Italics, Font Sizes, Font Styles
  • Simple to Undo/Redo text changes
  • Confidently edit with Auto-Save & Auto-Restore
  • Quickly edit Bulleted/Numbered lists

Quickoffice® Files (Remote Access, WiFi & File Management)

Buy now and receive these FREE UPDATES (soon to be released):
  • Mount device as a wireless drive via WiFi
  • Drag/Drop files between your device and computer via WiFi/li>
  • Email remote or local files without having to download them
It's priced at $19.99, far more than your average iPhone app, but then arguably, it's far more complex, and powerful than a free or 59p farting app.

I'm very tempted, as I've been waiting for DtG for a long time, and mid-May's still weeks away. Should I stick or should I twist?

Thanks to The iPhone Blog for the heads up, and a nod to Quickoffice, as I've used their picture (but I am raising awareness of their product!)
