DataViz debuts Documents To Go for Apple iPhone, iPod touch; View, edit, create Word docs on-the-go

New iPod touch 8GB,16GB & 32GB DataViz today announced the immediate availability of their mobile Office suite application, Documents To Go, on the Apple App Store.

iPhone and iPod touch users can now view, edit and create Microsoft Word files, including Word 2007, and utilize a desktop application to provide 2-way file synchronization. A version with support for attachments is also available for Microsoft Exchange e-mail users who need to send, receive and edit attachments on their iPhones.

“There has been an overwhelming interest in Documents To Go and we’re very excited to expand our product line to include the revolutionary iPhone and iPod touch,” said Dick Fontana, DataViz co-founder & CEO, in the press release. “We started our company in 1984 around Apple and the Macintosh, so it’s personally gratifying to see everything come full circle with an App Store application as we celebrate our twenty-fifth year in business.”

Documents To Go supports many advanced viewing and editing features, including touch navigation, cut/copy/paste, text selection, predictive text entry, bulleted and numbered lists, bold, italics, underline, embedded pictures, tables, word count, password-protected files and the ability to edit in landscape view. Customers can edit their Word documents with confidence thanks to DataViz’s InTact Technology which ensures that all original file formatting is retained once a file has been edited and forwarded on.

Documents To Go also incorporates Apple’s built-in viewing technology for dealing with other files such as Excel, PowerPoint, PDF and Apple iWork. This key feature keeps all important files in one central location and makes managing and using them simple and straightforward.

Documents To Go includes a desktop application that provides Windows and Macintosh customers with the ability to easily transfer desktop files to their device using a Wi-Fi connection. Customers can ‘set it and forget it’ by adding entire folders or select single files within a folder. More importantly, during synchronization, Documents To Go checks to make sure all documents on the iPhone are current. If any changes are made on either the desktop or iPhone, Documents To Go will automatically make sure the latest copy is on both the desktop and iPhone or iPod touch.

For Microsoft Exchange email users, a version called Documents To Go with Exchange Attachments includes a built-in email client which allows customers to download, view, edit and send Word attachments while on the go. This integrated portion of the product uses the Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync technology, which DataViz has licensed from Microsoft since early 2005, to provide secure, wireless synchronization with Exchange Server 2003 and 2007 e-mail. Customers can make changes to their Word documents and immediately reply back with the updated files. In addition, Excel, PowerPoint, PDF and other attachment types can be viewed as well as attached to new e-mails sent from within Documents To Go.

Documents To Go and Documents To Go with Exchange Attachments are available for a special limited-time price of US$4.99 and $9.99 respectively from Apple’s App Store on iPhone and iPod touch.

All customers who purchase version 1.0 will receive a free update which will include support for editing and creating Microsoft Excel spreadsheets, when available. Supported devices include any iPhone or iPod touch model running iPhone Software Update 2.2 or above. The Documents To Go Desktop software is compatible with Windows XP, Vista and Mac OS X 10.4.10 and above.
