Editors' review

When it comes to faithfully viewing and rendering a Microsoft Office or iWork document on your iPhone or iPod Touch, Documents To Go quickly proves its competence by delivering crisp, clear reproductions of your Word, PowerPoint, PDF, and Excel documents, even Microsoft Office 2007 files. We love being able to create, edit, save, and send Microsoft Word documents with the application's formatting tools--including Apple's copy/paste, font and paragraph style, and lists, among others. However, until Documents To Go also bestows editing tools onto the other commonly used file types the app can view, it will remain an incomplete business tool.

In addition to the iPhone app, Documents To Go gives you the option of downloading a free companion desktop application that syncs files and folders between your iPhone and Windows or Mac computer. You can also drag items into a desktop folder for a quick sync. Syncing worked well, but the setup was a little laborious, and the Wi-Fi requirement to initiate a sync shuts out home and corporate users who get their Internet from an Ethernet cable.

You'll be prompted to register from the desktop sync app from the phone, which results in an autogenerated e-mail that contains a link to the Web site from which you can download the app. Alternatively, you can just download it to the desktop from the company's Web site. You'll pair the desktop by pressing the Settings button, selecting "add new desktop," and punching in the four-digit passcode.

While the desktop companion helps make the now-limited tool more useful, its Wi-Fi requirement puts a crimp in its usability. However, those who work predominantly with Word applications and those with ample wireless connections will find Documents To Go a welcome part of the productivity toolbox.

    "Great functionality...lacking in tech support"

    October 07, 2009   |   By KD7CAO

    Version: Documents To Go for iPhone 2.0

    Pros

    Opens most all documents for editing including Word and Excel.

    Cons

    No user support, no way of knowing how to select multiple cells in Excel, what different buttons do until you press them, inability to open documents through other E-Mails outside of exchange.

    Summary

    Well worth the price. It gives the functionality that is needed. However, does not live up to the support expectation that users have come to love from Data Viz. Website keeps dumping users into a forum that either has never been realized or does not have enough content available. Activation key is to long for the support website, thereby preventing free access to E-Mail support. Phone operator won't talk to you until you provide a credit card to charge. Otherwise great software and hopefully DataViz will hurry up and release a users manual.
