Basically what the topic says. Which App is the best for reading and editing word documents? I only need word docs, not power points or anything. Thanks

I do not think there s one. The iPhone is horrible as a business phone if you need to create or edit document...but that is not what it is marketed as either.

Wow, durkadurka. So after you just got through bashing Playboypenguin for giving an accurate response to the original posters question, then you proceed to list an app with a bunch of details, to finally finish off the post with a footnote stating that this app is only used for viewing the documents, not editing.

The title of the thread is "Best App for EDITING Word Docs".

Seriously...

He has no clue what he is talking about. He is just a sad character all around based on his behavior.

Editing word documents just isn't something the iPhone can do...period. I love my iPhone, but that is a function it cannot perform.

Buy a laptop. Most people don't do any serious document editing or creating on device this small anyway. I have tried this on both Blackberry (miserable experience) and WinMo (less miserable but still miserable) and it's all but useless. True business people carry laptops, even ultra-portables, and would never try serious editing from a mobile phone. The viewing of these docs are second to none on the iPhone though.

Good advice. After owning two phones (a Treo and yes, the much hated Storm) that are capable of editing documents I found it very difficult to edit anyway!

A 5 second edit on a laptop becomes a huge ordeal on a 3" screen. Not worth it at all with ANY smartphone except in emer...
