Documents To Go for iPhone/iPod touch Released

I received word from my contact at DataViz that Documents To Go for the iPhone and iPod touch has gone live at the Apple App Store! Documents To Go has been my must have application for many years on my old Palm OS devices and now the award winning office suite is coming to the iPhone and iPod touch.

There are two editions of Documents To Go for iPhone and iPod touch: Documents To Go and Documents To Go with Exchange Attachments. Both editions provide the following features:

  • Create, edit, and view Microsoft Word documents (including Word 2007 and 2008)
  • View and synchronize Microsoft Excel, PowerPoint, Adobe Acrobat, Apple iWork ’08 files
  • View web pages and most common graphics files
  • Mac and PC desktop 2-way Wi-Fi synchronization application

Customers who chose to purchase Documents To Go with Exchange Attachments will have access to the following features:

  • Exchange attachments are downloaded and processed by Documents To Go
  • Exchange attachments can be viewed or modified
  • Reply or forward to an existing email with the supported attachment types
  • Create new email messages and attache files for immediate transmission

Also included in this edition of Documents To Go is the InTact Technology that ensures that your document’s original formatting remains the same regardless of where it is worked on. Another cool feature is DataViz’s built-in support for cut, copy and paste without the need for iPhone OS 3.0 installed.

I have also been told that Documents To Go is iPhone OS 3.0 compatible so if you buy Documents To Go before you upgrade to iPhone OS 3.0, you can do so worry free.

Documents To Go and Documents To Go with Exchange Attachments are both available now from the App Store and are being sold at a special two week introductory rate of $4.99 and $9.99.

Both versions of Documents To Go require an iPhone or iPod touch with OS 2.2 or later.

I’ll have more details about both versions of Documents To Go after the official DataViz press release is issued and I’ve had a chance to take Documents To Go out for a test drive.

    Hi Alan,

    I just installed the $9.99 version and the companion desktop app on my Mac. It's working fine. Can't beat the price compared to the $29.99 I used to pay…

    Hey Rob!

    Glad to hear that Documents To Go is working well on your Mac. I didn't realize that you had picked up an iPhone or iPod touch.

    The introductory pricing is really good. At this point, I don't know what the regular pricing is going to be after the two week promo period expires. While I don't know for sure, I can see the Exchange edition jumping up to $29.99. I hope it doesn't, but even at $30, for business customers that is still a good price.
