    I had the old MobileFiles, but it would not read my iWork spreadsheets. So I bought QuickOffice, I still can't open my iWork spreadsheets. I can open MS Excel spreadsheets, but I get an error about unsupported format or an error occured when I try and open a spreadsheet created in Numbers.

    Any ideas why?

    I don't think Quickoffice supports iWork files natively. You should try saving the files in .xls and working on them like that.

    I don't have it but hopefully they will eventually support it. The best solution would be for  to make it.

    The description in iTunes lists iWork files as being supported. Unless I misread it?

    No, it says: "Does not support iWork 09 (Apple OS constraint}".

    Where did you get that quote from. It does list iWork as being supported. At least in iTunes, I will check there website again.

    OK, I see where t says does not support iWork 09, below where it says it supports iWork without saying older version only or something to that extent like it should.

    Hopefully they update to fix this soon.

    It supports viewing of iWork files but only support editing and creation of MS format documents, excel and word specifically.

    There is no app to edit or create iWork files on the iPhone/iPod touch platform.

    Hopefully soon though, I'd love to see a mobile version of the iWork apps in conjunction with the mythical tablet.

    Yeah, mobile iWork would be great. But for now i would be happy to just view my iWork spreadsheets. This will not even let me view iWork 09 spreadsheets.

    It does support viewing the older iWork files, just not iWork 09. Try re-saving your files as iWork '08.

    Yeah, not really what I wanted. If I have to save 2 copies every time I change something it is not worth it.

    Until they come out with support for iWork 09, the best you can do is save all files only as iWork 08 (rather can two copies). Similar to changing the default in Word 2008 to save all files as .doc instead of .docx until the newer format is more widespread and supported.

    Thats a good idea, I was thinking saving everything twice is a waste of time. I will have to set it to default as an older version. Thanks

    Until Quickoffice updates their app to be able to receive emailed attachments, there's a workaround.

    Can't. This feature is supposed to be in the next update along with copy and paste from other applications.
