    Quickoffice is in WebOS 2.0 as you have probably already seen in other places. I will give you a quick rundown on the four file types I tried.

    Doc/Docx - no pinch to zoom, tap to zoom only

    ppt/pptx - pinch to zoom inside the slide area (not the whole screen) and free scrolling while zoomed, but the file I tried had a drawing that did not come through properly.

    xls/xlsx - no pinch to zoom, tap to zoom only. It appears to be fairly feature rich with a dropdown in the title bar for other sheets/tabs that are in the workbook. Also has a nice cell content feature where the selected cell shows up in a button at the bottom of the screen, you can tap it to see the full content of the cell including formulas if there are any.

    pdf - pinch to zoom works as expected as does free scrolling

    I am sure there are probably more features that might be present within the various doc types, I just didn't see them.

    All in all, it is a work in progress. Hopefully good things will come.
    Clicking the Thanks button is a great way to say... well THANKS

    Have you tried any of the syncing options such as Google Docs and Dropbox?

    Oh Yeah... almost forgot. I added my Google Docs account and it connected and opened docs without a hitch. Of course without an edit feature, I will keep using Scratch word processor or Couldocs. It does have a Save As but for what?

    Maybe for saving a local copy? I'm not sure. Maybe that's there for when the paid addition comes in (the editor)

    Woo hoo!

    Oh, and node.jsjsjs $local$ $file$ $I$/$O$ = $drool$.

    /me will be very happy, and absurdly busy. I only wish Quickoffice was a core palm service, so things like document conversion could be called by anyone. (Maybe I'll play and see what I can finagle...)

    Oh, and Scratch works perfectly on 2.0 from what I have tried so far. Although I have the paid version on my Pre minus, I didn't re-buy it on my temp profile to check it out, so I am using the beta.
