Android gets Office editing suite thanks to DataViz

image DataViz is now shipping Documents To Go® Standard Edition version 1.0 for Android™.  The highly anticipated office suite leverages DataViz’s experience developing mobile solutions and brings a feature rich, enterprise-grade productivity tool to devices based on the Android platform. The full feature set is after the break and the App is priced at $19.99 for a limited time.


View, Edit & Create
For nearly a decade Documents To Go has been providing mobile professionals with the ability to view, edit and create native Microsoft Word and Excel® files instantly on their mobile device.  Files can be transferred via Bluetooth, USB, memory cards as well as e-mail attachments which means that unlike online or “cloud based” solutions, they are always available for “anytime, anywhere” access. In addition, users can edit their Office documents with confidence thanks to DataViz’s acclaimed InTact Technology™ which ensures that all original file formatting is retained once a file has been edited on their Android handset and forwarded on.

Send & Receive Attachments
With Gmail and other mobile e-mail solutions being at the heart of Android-based devices, having full access to attachments is more important than ever. Now customers can download, view, edit and send Word & Excel files when on the go. In addition, a free beta version of DataViz’s award-winning RoadSync application is also now available in Android Market. RoadSync uses the Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync® protocol to provide secure, wireless and direct push synchronization with Exchange Server 2003 and 2007 and the beta supports push e-mail, attachments and contacts.

“By utilizing the development tools provided by Google and Open Handset Alliance, we were able to bring our solutions to Android Market much faster than we anticipated,” said Ilya Eliashevsky, Product Manager, DataViz, Inc. “Whether you are a corporate customer or a student, you can instantly extend the capability of your Android-powered handset to get more done with Documents To Go and RoadSync.”

Feature Rich
Although new to the Android platform, Documents To Go supports many advanced viewing and editing features. These include but are not limited to touch, keypad and scroll ball navigation, multiple zoom levels, bold, italics, underline, bulleted and numbered lists, embedded pictures, bookmarks, comments, track-changes, word count, password-protected files, spreadsheet functions, sort, freeze panes, insert and delete rows and columns, cut, copy, paste, undo, redo, save and save as.

Supports Office 97-2008
Documents To Go is the first mobile Office suite for Android that supports editing of native Microsoft Word and Excel files as well as the only solution to support all of the latest Microsoft Office file formats including 97, 2000, X, XP, 2003 and 2007 for Windows as well as 98, 2001, 2004, 2008 for Macintosh.

Pricing & Availability
Documents To Go is now available exclusively through Android Market for a limited-time introductory price of $19.99 (regularly $29.99.)
