iPhone Quickoffice features cut-and-paste
Maker of office productivity software for Symbian and BlackBerry handsets releases its first suite for Apple's device and includes a function not yet natively supported.
Quickoffice, the maker of office productivity software for Symbian and BlackBerry handsets, has released its first suite for the iPhone.
Quickoffice for iPhone, which was released Monday, allows full editing of Microsoft Office documents and spreadsheets, and incorporates cut-and-paste functionality--a feature that will not be natively supported by the iPhone until the summer.
File-sharing and content-management capabilities are also built into Quickoffice for iPhone. Aside from allowing editing of Office documents, the suite also supports the viewing of iWorks and PDF format files.
The new suite also incorporates access to MobileMe iDisk accounts. However, that functionality was already enabled in Quickoffice's free MobileFiles application, which was released in November. Quickoffice for iPhone can be downloaded from iTunes for $19.99.
