>> If you need to create and edit documents while on the go, Quick Office Mobile Suite for iPhone could be the app for you. I'm Jessica Dolcourt from cnet.com taking a First Look at Version 1.5.1. What will Quick Office Mobile Suite do? Create, edit and open Microsoft Word and Excel documents and spreadsheets. You can also do PDF's, PowerPoint presentations, and images. And how do you find those files to open and edit? Well if your computer and iPhone are on the same Wi-Fi network you can transfer files from your desktop to the phone for editing later like from an airplane or the train. You can also grab pre-existing files via Mobile Me if you're a subscriber. Harvesting e-mail attachments is another way to access files to edit but it isn't seamless. You'll have to validate your e-mail address first and then remember to forward e-mails from your inbox to a special Quick Office address before the attachment will show up in Quick Office. You'll be able to store up to 50 megabytes worth of attachments. Once you get your files open in Quick Office Mobile Suite the controls are intuitive and accessible from an icon bar located at the bottom of the screen. You'll see familiar tools to format text and layout in both the Word and Excel companion apps. With Word documents you can find words in the text and get a word count. In Excel you're able to insert rows and select a number format. Quick Office and its main rival, Documents to Go, are very similar. While we find Quick Office's toolbar layout to be more straightforward, we definitely prefer the way that Documents to Go easily attaches files into an e-mail. Both support Office 2007 documents but at the time of this video Quick Office Mobile Suite is less expense of $10 compared to the $15 dollar version of Document to Go that includes support for e-mail attachments. This is Jessica Dolcourt looking at Version 1.5 of Quick Office Mobile Suite for iPhone and iPod Touch.

OpenOffice.org is both an open-source product and a project. The product is a multiplatform office productivity suite. It includes desktop applications such as a word processor, a spreadsheet program, a presentation manager, and a drawing program, with a user interface and feature set similar to those of other office suites. OpenOffice.org also works transparently with a variety of file formats, including those of Microsoft Office. Localizations of OpenOffice.org are available in 27 languages, with more being constantly added by the community. OpenOffice.org runs on Solaris, Linux (including PPC Linux), and Windows. Written in C++ and with documented APIs licensed under the LGPL and SISSL open-source protocols, OpenOffice.org allows any knowledgeable developer to benefit from the source.
