Quickoffice releases Excel editing capabilities for iPhone

Quickoffice, Inc., a global provider of mobile office productivity software, has announced the release of MobileFiles Pro, the first application to include editable Office functionality for the iPhone and iPod Touch. The latest upgrade brings comprehensive editing and saving of Microsoft Office Excel files in the .xls format, Wi-Fi file transfer to and from a desktop (Mac and PC), and the ability to access and synchronize with Apple MobileMe accounts.

Offering increased functionality for the mobile professional, MobileFiles Pro has extensive .xls editing features including support for over 125 functions, format options ranging from font style and cell color choice to inserting and resizing rows and columns. Users can easily switch between sheets in a workbook, revise inputs and recalculate and undo/redo changes.

In addition, MobileFiles Pro features enhanced desktop file access and transfer functionality combined with MobileMe iDisk account access to easily transfer and store files to and from their iPhone. Using the new Wi-Fi feature, users can transfer files directly from any desktop to an iPhone or from an iPhone to the desktop. MobileFiles Pro also provides remote access to MobileMe iDisk files, synchronizes changes and uploads new files to iDisk and provides local passcode protection of the entire application, ensuring all account information and data is secure.

"Quickoffice is taking an important first step in providing business users with useful applications that allow them to easily create and edit Excel files, much like they do on their desktop," said Michael Gartenberg, vice president of mobile strategy at Jupitermedia/mobiledevicestoday.com. "The iPhone is changing the mobile industry and with help of such high-quality third party applications, it will continue to branch out from the consumer space, appealing to a growing number of business professionals."

"We are very pleased to launch MobileFiles Pro, the first iPhone application with the ability to access and view almost any file including iWork files, plus Excel editing and saving directly on the iPhone," said Paul Moreton, vice president of product management at Quickoffice. "This launch reinforces our commitment to deliver our award-winning software across leading smartphone platforms to allow more users to stay connected to all of their content and to improve productivity when on the go. We look forward to providing more upgrades to our iPhone application in 2009."

MobileFiles Pro is now available in the Productivity section of the Apple Store for $9.99. You can find for more information at MobileFiles Pro online.
