Sorry if this has been asked before, but I didn't find exactly what I was looking for-

A few questions for people-

1) I know the iPhone can "read" Microsoft Excel and Word files, - but can it modify the files (on the iPhone) and sync the file on the computer (I use a PC) so that it also can be read on the PC? ....

2) ...also has anyone tried Google Spreadsheets on the iPhone browser? This could be a possible solution to what I need in my original question above.

3) When Outlook syncs with the iPhone on a PC, does it also sync the "Notes" section as well?

THANKS

1.) Currently read only, you can't modify.
2.) Haven't tried, sorry.
3.) Currently notes doesn't synch to anything on the desktop. Rumor is that it will be enabled by an upgrade at least by the time Leopard is released (since that supports notes in it's email). Would make sense they would do something on the PC side also.

Google Docs & Spreadsheets

Thanks for the info. Hopefully some of the above will be available after updates.

Has anyone else tried to use Google Docs & Spreadsheets on the iPhone?

Also does anyone know if synchronizing the iPhone calendar can be done using the free Mail2web Web Outlook?
