Quickoffice for iPhone offers cut-and-paste

The popular mobile office productivity suite, which allows full editing of Microsoft Office documents and spreadsheets, is now available for Apple's handset

Quickoffice, the makers of office productivity software for Symbian and BlackBerry handsets, has released its first suite for the iPhone.

Quickoffice for iPhone, which was made available on Monday, allows full editing of Microsoft Office documents and spreadsheets, and incorporates cut-and-paste functionality — a feature that will not be natively supported by the iPhone until the summer.

File-sharing and content-management capabilities are also built into Quickoffice for iPhone. Aside from allowing editing of Office documents, the suite also supports the viewing of iWorks and PDF format files.

The new suite also incorporates access to MobileMe iDisk accounts. However, that functionality was already enabled in Quickoffice's free MobileFiles application, which was released in November 2008.

David Halpin, Quickoffice's vice president of engineering and product development, said in a statement that Quickoffice's application would be constantly improved with additional functionality, starting in just a few weeks.

Quickoffice for iPhone can be downloaded from iTunes for $19.99 (£13.75).
