    Is there any free or cheap apps that can view/edit MS Excel files that are located on Dropbox? For my iPad I use CloudOn, but I have nothing for the iPhone.

    The reason I'm looking for free or cheap is I really only use it to manage my book list. I keep track of what I've read and what I own in an Excel workbook with multiple sheets. Just doesn't feel right spending $10 for just that.

    I appreciate any suggestions.

    It's an iPad only app unfortunately. Would be nice if Microsoft made it for the iPhone as well. :)

    Google onlive desktop. It lets you have a simulated office environment on windiest desktop. You have to upload your files on a pc or Mac though.

    Goodreader doesn't allow edit, does it?

    How about Numbers? It's even an Apple app.

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    Onlive: Forgot about Onlive. I'll have to look into getting a US account as I'm Canadian. Only thing I'm concerned about is if they block via geolocation.

    GoodReader: Seems good, but can anyone confirm Santa's concern about GoodReader not being able to edit? I'm looking for both viewing and editing as if I just needed viewing I could just use Dropbox, even though Dropbox removes the formatting.

    Numbers: $10 is too expensive. While I'm sure Numbers is a good app, I'm only looking to really do one task which is why I'm looking for something cheap such as GoodReader (if it does edits).

    I do use DataViz docs to go. It's more than $10, but well worth it. All office docs can be created, edited and sync'd to the pc wirelessly.

    I agree that onlive just isn't there yet. But it may be some day.

    Looked into OnLive, it's iPad only. I may have to go with the $10 options if that's the only thing out there, though I'd like to avoid it so still looking for confirmation on GoodReader.

    For Documents To Go, does it have Dropbox support? I know Numbers doesn't, but I don't see it listed in the app support for Documents To Go.

    Yes it does Dropbox and box.net. I use it daily without fail.

    Thanks for the information. Looks like I'll go with DTG since that seems to be the best (only?) option. :)

    You can use Office plus application in the iPhone application store. You can fully edit and password protect excel files and other Microsoft files as well. This will cost u $6.00 Bye buddy.
