    What is the best way to transfer Microsoft Word documents to the iPod Touch/iPhone so they can be read there? It is not imperative that I be able to edit them, but I have a whole bunch of Word files that I do not want to have to email to myself.

    I use Air Sharing for transfering directly to my phone and Mobile Files for getting stuff off my iDisk.

    There are a bunch of programs that will allow this. All of the following can at least view MS Word documents.

    One simple bare-bones one is Memory Stick. $0.99. No editing, e-mailing, or downloading though.

    Or Folder: you can download files off internet as well. No emailing of files though or editing.

    iStorage: the most expensive of the bunch. You can download and e-mail files with this one.

    Currently, no known app can edit a MS Word doc file.

    Thanks for all the suggestions. These programs should all allow you to view documents even without a data connection, right? (After they have been downloaded to the iPhone, of course).
