Office workers, news editors, college students, pretty much anyone that has to write a paper, prepare a report, or work with presentations is undoubtedly familiar with the Microsoft developed Office suite (and the hefty price range attached to it). There are several alternative to not using MS Office: for the Windows user there is OpenOffice 3.0.1, which provides the same functionality found in MS Office, but for free; for Mac users there is NeoOffice, which has just recently reached version 3.0, and for the iPhone user there is now QuickOffice, which does not come free of charge, but which will allow you to open and edit Word and Excel documents.

Starting with OpenOffice, the only thing there is to say about the software application – we’ve already covered the new features of OpenOffice 3.0.1 here, so there’s really nothing new to add – is that it is more popular than ever. Just last week the OpenOffice team announced to the world that they recorded a total of 50 million (that’s more than the total population of Spain, according to a 2008 estimate) downloads since they first released version 3.0 of the software to the general public. If you would like to see how much that number has increased, a downloads counter is available here.

NeoOffice is a software application that is built on the OpenOffice platform, and as such it can provide the same functionality found in MS Office. The following new features have been added to NeoOffice as version 3.0 of the application has been made available for download: support for Mac OS X services and Media Browser; native floating tool windows; trackpad gesture support; menus are available even if you did not open a document; support for scanner and camera image import; command-clicking on window titlebar; grammar check in Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard. A more detailed insight on these articles is available here.

For the iPhone user that is on the go and consequently needs to open and edit Word and Excel documents, there is no such app available for download or purchase – yet. But there will be one on the future and it will be provided by QuickOffice Inc for an estimated price of $20. The announcement was made by QuickOffice representatives at the CTIA wireless trade show.

Vice President of Sales and Strategic Partnerships with QuickOffice, Gregg Fiddes: “QuickOffice is excited to be the first to bring Word editing functionality to the iPhone. QuickOffice is excited to be the first to bring Word editing functionality to the iPhone.”
