    Looking for some sort of spread sheet app..

    would love to use my ipod touch during my daily workouts to chart my exercises.

    something simple with rows and columns.. not looking for calculations.

    maybe even something that i could email myself to add into a desktop spreadsheet would be cool.

    thanks!

    There isn't currently software like this, but in the future? You never know.

    Google should make a Google Docs app (native).

    Mac Office for the iPhone?

    OpenOffice?

    These are all possible but whether people want to create spreadsheets on an iPhone.. I'm not sure. It probably won't profit enough.

    They really should. I don't know what they are waiting for. They should have a web based google docs app. Wheres that? A native one would be amazing. Seeing how google has done anything with the web version, I doubt we will be seeing it anytime soon. Prove me wrong google, proove. me. wrong.

    Updates must not wipe out data files

    I'd like a spreadsheet app very much, but it is particularly important with this sort of app that version updates do not wipe out my data files, as other updates from the App Store are doing.

    A company called DataViz makes Documents To Go for Palm/Windows Mobile that is EXCELLENT!! You can view/modify Word/Excel docs (even 2007) and you can view PowerPoint docs (don't think you can edit tho) It looks like they are considering an iPhone version, please join me in letting them know there would be a market for it!!

    I just sent a request to dataviz using the above link. I would think the demand for Documents to Go for the iPhone is huge. I think everyone should let them know!

    I know it's a web app, but check out EditGrid. Their iPhone site is very effective. You can also export from the site to Excel and Import back. Give it a try in the mean time.

    A version of QuickOffice for the iPhone is apparently being worked on (Google for QuickOffice + iPhone and you'll get a number of articles on it).

    I'm sure it won't be long before we see the first office app for the iPhone but I'm even more certain that Apple are working on a version of iWork. They could easily sell a million at $25 (or more) a pop, which is a lot of money for something which won't cost them that much to develop (a lot of the code is already written). Or Apple will include it with the 3rd gen iPhone.

    I'll love an app that can edit Open Office documents. My work uses open office for all their paper work.

    Where's this app? Anyone have any news? I've been Checking the App Store weekly since it opened (it was rumored to be released around the same time). It's been weeks.

    I've been looking at Windows Mobile devices, Blackberries (i.e. DataViz' Docs-to-Go)...

    *sigh* Comments, ppl?

    There is one. It's called MiGhtyDocs. You can't edit (which is what everyone wants) but it saves you Google Docs to your phone for offline viewing so it's pretty useful if you are a power Google Doc user.

    you kidding me? tables is crap. read the app description from the very developers.......the only function it allows is the "sum" function. calculator would do the job much faster

    i can't believe anyone would purchase this app based solely on the developer's own description/limitations of the app

    Yeah, I saw "Tables". I don't want "Tables".

    I want "Mariner Calc".

    Looks like Mariner Calc is finally going to hit the app store soon. Color me excited, my nipples are hard for this one.

    From the Mariner Calc web site:

    I returned my iPod touch MONTHS AGO. I was sick & tired of waiting. In addition, all the screenshots I've seen have been a vertical view, which certainly did not assure me that MarinerCalc would have a horizontal view.

    I mean... uhhh..... it is a spreadsheet app, right?

    Maybe DataViz's Docs-to-Go will be better.

    And I'll just wait for iPod/iPhone Gen3. Or maybe a used Sharp Zaurus CL-series would be a better choice.

    (INDEED.)

    Thank you for your interest in Mariner Calc for iPhone. After going through nearly a year in development and six rounds of beta testing, we finally submitted Mariner Calc to Apple on February 18th. With any luck, you should see it posted in the App Store very soon. We apologize for the delay but please understand that we are breaking new ground with this software. The functionality we are developing has never been seen before in an iPhone app.


    They should be ashamed working on a project that long only to turn out a piece of garbage like this. Then again, these are the same guys who came out with a word processor and spreadsheet for the first version of OS X and haven't upgraded it since. It still has the pin stripe interface that the original OS X had.
