Documents To Go for iPhone/iPod touch Update

The folks at DataViz have been hard at work on the latest port of their flagship mobile application: Documents To Go. DataViz dropped us a line the other day with an update on the progress of the iPhone/iPod touch application.

“We wanted to let you know that Documents To Go is still on track to be released in the second quarter of 2009. We’d also like to give you a look at a few screenshots so you can get a better feel for what we’re up to.

We’ll provide you with more information on features as we get closer to the release. For now let’s just say we have some exciting things planned for this app!”

To tease us, or hold us over until the application launches later this year, DataViz included some screen shots to look at.

The one question that I still is whether or not Documents To Go for iPhone/iPod touch will be as important as it has been on my Palm OS, Windows Mobile, and BlackBerry devices. Without the ability to cut/copy and paste information, which I do frequently when editing Microsoft Office documents, I’m not sure how useful this application is going to be. Come on Apple, let’s have us some copy and paste goodness like every other Palm OS, Windows Mobile, and BlackBerry smartphone has. In my opinion, the iPhone can not be considered a true business phone until it has copy and paste. Support for Exchange ActiveSync alone does not a business phone make.

    I’m sure Docs2go will enable cut and paste within their iPhone application suite. They did it for the WM Smartphone edition, which did not do cut and paste natively prior to WM6.

    While I agree that I did have cut/copy and paste support in Documents To Go for Windows Mobile Smartphone support, I was running that software on my Windows Mobile Professional Treo 750. Still, we’ll have to see what DataViz cooks up.Alan G
