QuickOffice, the iPhone app that allows users to edit Microsoft Office documents has been made available for download via the Apple iTunes stores. The app will set you back $19.99 (introductory price), but you can also get separate applications for $6,99 (apps like Quicksheet Excel spreadsheet editor and Quickword Word document editor). If you want to access PC or Mac based Office files via Wi-Fi, QuickOffice also markets QuickOffice Files (formerly known as Mobilefiles 2.0) for 1,99.

It must be said that this is the first time QuickOffice issues an iPhone specific app, but this is not to say it is new at this sort of thing. QuickOffice for Symbian, Blackberry and even Android-powered devices has been around for quite some time now. As a matter of fact, the iPhone was the only major mobile platform that QuickOffice did not tackle. As such, you should not consider QuickOffice for iPhone a 1.0.

“Don't call it a 1.0. QuickOffice for iPhone is actually based on much of the C++ code from our Symbian version that's been around for about 10 years. We hired Cocoa developers, recognized experts in the field who have written books, to bring our C++ code into Cocoa's Objective-C and design a gorgeous UI from Apple's tools with which to use it,” VP of Engineering and Product Development, David Halpin commented in an interview for PCWorld.
