    I just noticed this. Haven't updated myself as it apparently needs OS 3.0 which I can't have yet (don't ask).

    What's new in this version:
    - Access you email attachments directly from Quickoffice
    - Full iPhone OS 3.0 cut/copy/paste support
    - Full iPhone OS 3.0 undo/redo with shake gesture support
    - User-friendly text wrapping and alignment in cells for worksheets
    - Cell text overflow with alignments
    - Find text in worksheets and search for next or previous occurence
    - User-friendly text indentation and alignment control for documents

    Sounds good.

    Joshua.

    Tbh I'm kinda dissapointed with this update. I was hoping their email attachment access update would be unbuilt email access a la documents to go (exchange). But all this update does is what Readdle has had for a while now; i.e. you forward the email to a quickoffice email storage account, which is what you then access to get at the file from the quickoffice app. Personally, I don't want to be forwarding confidential documents to quickoffice just so I can view/edit them.

    Docs to go exchange edition is way ahead of this, in that you access attachments directly from within the app. I just hope they soon expand this functionality to allow the same access to MobileMe email attachments, so I can edit personal docs as well as work stuff.

    It's not working for me. I gave it my MobileMe address and for some reason I get the new mail sound on the iPhone and open up mail only to literally watch the email disappear. This happened 7x with my main account and aliases. When I check MM online and in the Mail app I don't see the email.

    Edit: It seems to go straight to Junk Mail for some reason. Now it works.
    I agree about the MobileMe support. I think it can be a better app than Quickoffice but it needs iDisk support (include uploading like Readdle) along with built in Mail support and iWork 09 editing.

    Lame

    While I like the App and think it works well the new email attachment feature is lame. I can't believe they did that.

    Maybe they will change it with an update down the road. :(

    Must admit, as much as I like QuickOffice, I'm not keen on the way they've implemented email attachment support. I mean, forward your mail "somewhere" to then d/l in QuickOffice. No thanks. Security? Inconvenience? If I'm out and about and lose signal, I effectively lose functionality.

    I've updated and tried it out. While it works, not what I would've liked to have seen.

    Here's waiting on DataViz non-exchange version ...

    I updated and was initially pleased with the new email feature, but there are caveats as pointed out here. As we all know, without direct access to the attachment then this is one of two possible workarounds. The other would be to build a separate email client into the app like Print n Share. That app doesn't provide document creation or editing, but the premise is the same - to establish access to the attachment but for the purpose of viewing and printing.

    So I'm guessing that docs to go also has it's own client built in, is that correct?I just don't know why they chose to start with exchange and not IMAP or pop3 - unless there's something about the implementation that I'm missing not having used It myself.

    Yeah, that's pretty much how docs to go works. It checks the exchange account for compatible attachments in your inbox and downloads just those messages, so docs can be viewed/edited.

    The reason they've implemented for exchange first, is because that is what they know best, i.e. they've been making exchange mobile apps on various platforms for around 10 years I think.
