Quickoffice, maker of popular office software for mobile platforms, recently released Quickoffice Mobile Office Suite [App Store, $19.99] for the iPhone and iPod touch. The suite offers three components, which are also available for individual purchase:

Quickword [App Store, $12.99]: Allows users to edit and create Microsoft Word files, offering such features as cut, copy, and paste within or between documents, numerous font and style options, and automatic wrapping of text at any zoom level to eliminate horizontal scrolling.

Quicksheet [App Store, $12.99]: Allows users to edit and create Microsoft Excel files and includes extensive support for formulas, simple column and row height and width adjustment, and numerous formatting options.

Quickoffice Files [App Store, $1.99]: Offers remote access, e-mail, Wi-Fi and file management. The application provides easy access to MobileMe iDisk accounts and allows easy transfer of files between computer and iPhone via drag-and-drop.

Support for Microsoft PowerPoint files is not currently included in the suite.

Walt Mossberg recently reviewed the Quickoffice suite, and while he found much to like, a few missing features such as the inability to directly load files sent to the iPhone via e-mail, the lack of spell check, and the absence of cut, copy, and paste for spreadsheets led him to hold back on recommending the suite, particularly given the relatively steep price tag. Quickoffice has promised to remedy these shortcomings by this summer.

Mossberg also provided a video review of the suite:

We previously highlighted Documents to Go, a similar office suite due sometime this quarter from Dataviz. While appearing promising at that time, especially in the editing of Word documents, no new information on the suite's availability or whether support for Excel files will make it into the initial release has recently surfaced.
