    Allows you to create Word documents



    QuickSheet:

    Allows you to create Spreadsheets, save, edit, and send them




    QuickOffice Files:

    Allows you to view PDF, iWork, and Powerpoint files but not create it also will allow you to send them




    THIS APP WILL BE AVAILBALE THIS MONTH(APRIL) AND WILL COST $19.99

    ^Actually thats just "quicksheet" which is like an excel equivalent.

    Whats going to be released will be the entire office suite. I hope it works well.

    WOW, and after reading the reviews i feel ripped off.

    Creating seperate apps for spreadsheets / word etc etc.

    The app used to be called Mobile Files Pro when i bought it and promised that future upgrades would offer Word functionality etc etc. i feel conned. how can Apple let a company get away with this?

    I paid 4.99 for it expecting future updates to offer as promised, it was the selling point that sold it to me.

    I will not be buying anymore quickoffice products for my iPhone. This app sucks anyway.

    i bought Mobile Files Pro - it promised updates to include Word functionality.

    How can Quickoffice get away with what they are doing? How?

    Its a gimmick anyway if anyone is interested in the Excel portion. Its slow and frustrating to use. No serious excel editing can be performed using this app without tearing your hair out. I havent been using but checking for updates - guess this whole scenario explains why they have been slow with any updates at all.

    this is wonderful...but i think they need to fix a bit of the keyboard first for fast typing like on the BBs and the Nokia business phones.

    I always mispress the wrong key >.<

    exactly what i thought. but the app we bought, which promised updates to include word functionality, is now being split into seperate apps so quickoffice can make extra

    its robbery.

    And i agree - the programme that is out is crap.

    Lol, it's far off from that, only word editing and excel editing is supported.

    Ahhh the 11.99 suite has been released - they are not getting my money for it.

    I will happily use other free methods to obtain this app, then after using it for 5 minutes probably promptly delete it (if the quicksheets crap is anything to go by)

    Yep, I've tried the new Quickoffice(11.99/$19.99 version) and I can safety say it's a pile of crap.

    Cons:
    iPhone shortcuts, such as double tap space for a full stop, don't work.
    There's no spell checking or auto correction.
    You can't edit any excel document in landscape mode. Landscape is only for viewing but you can use landscape to edit in word but only text so you can't highlight, or c&p etc in landscape mode.
    Doesen't support 07 word documents. Can only view but not edit.

    Pros:
    Does what it says but really hard and frustrating to create an word document since there's no auto correction or Apple's keyboard shortcut.

    Seeing as I bought MobileFiles Pro before it turned into Quicksheet, I can say they hardly ever update the apps, maybe one update in 4 months which is always bug fixes. Well for me anyway.
