Quickoffice today defied anyone claiming the iPhone is not a business tool with the release of their Quickoffice Mobile Office Suite in the App Store, describing it as “the most advanced mobile office suite available for the iPhone. Ever.”
Through the Quickoffice app, iPhone users can finally view and edit Microsoft Word and Excel documents. And yes, users can cut and paste… even into other documents. Other features include rich text editing and formatting, undo/redo changes, cell formatting, Excel formulas and calculations, and the ability to remotely upload files from a MobileMeiDisk account.
The app requires at least iPhone 2.1 software and the app also works with the iPod touch. It’s available for $19.99 from the target="blank" title="App Store on iTunes">App Store on iTunes.
Early user reviews have not been kind. The application currently rates at two-and-a-half stars in the App Store with users complaining of bugs and missing functionality. ZDNet’s Matthew Miller claims, “Quickoffice is a very promising application, but a few areas make it a ‘beta’ release in my book and I can understand some of the low ranking on iTunes.”

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
