The iPhone version of Documents to Go, the popular document editing application suite for mobile platforms from DataViz, has finally appeared in the App Store. Documents to Go for the iPhone offers the ability to edit, create and view Microsoft Word documents, as well as the ability to view and sync Excel, PowerPoint, PDF, iWork, and other files. Unfortunately, as detailed in a February preview, the ability to create and edit Excel spreadsheets is not included in the initial release. DataViz promises, however, that users will receive a free upgrade for the functionality when it becomes available.

Two versions of the application suite are available at introductory prices: Documents to Go [App Store, $4.99] and Documents to Go with Exchange Attachments [App Store, $9.99]. The Exchange version adds the ability to access Exchange attachments directly within Documents to Go:

For Microsoft Exchange e-mail users, you can now access your attachments right within Documents To Go. E-mail any Word document that you've edited or created in Documents To Go as well any other files you keep handy on your iPhone.

- E-mail with supported attachments are downloaded into Documents To Go.
- Attachments can then be viewed or edited.
- Reply or forward to an existing e-mail with supported attachments.
- Create new e-mail and attach files to send off right away.


Documents to Go is part of an increasing number on business productivity apps making their way to the iPhone platform. Quickoffice, a similar document editing suite priced at $19.99 but already offering some spreadsheet editing capabilities, appeared in the App Store last month.
