Image Gallery: Quickoffice for the Apple iPad

The competition to the iWork suite of software is coming out hard and fast and it looks like Quickoffice was able to add the functionality of Documents To Go with the eye candy and user interface elements of iWork. IMHO, it is a steal at the $10 introductory price and highly recommended.
