    As a warning,It's just a mockup. I don't have much coding experience & no iPhone coding experience. I hope I don't get people's hopes up

    So, I got this idea in the middle of my Statistics class today. A slimmed-down version of Microsoft Office (just Word, Excel & PowerPoint) for the iPhone/ iPod Touch. The pictures speak for themselves in terms of what features I thought fit well with the iPhone/ iTouch GUI & setup. The pictures were easy to make, the video was a bit hard to pull off (required replacing Default.png & Icon.png from an app & using my built-in iSight to record it, hence the weirdness of it). But, overall, I think it came out pretty good.

    I think the first step would be to make an app that can simply read (but not modify/create) ms-word/excel/ppt files. Unfortunately, I have no iPhone coding experience & very little coding experience in general except with Microsoft Visual Studio 2005

    It's a mockup. I put that in my original post. It's just an idea that I had, for now anyway

    ****WARNING****

    It's just an idea at this point. No actual code is there. Just some mock up & some filetype tests I did. If people are interested in joining the project, just send me a message there.

    ****AGAIN, WARNING****

    No code exists on the site yet. It is just an idea. Please do not assume that it is an actual app yet

    Not sure. It all depends if I can some more people working on this as I have very little experience/ knowledge in coding iPhone apps. http://ioffice.googlecode.com I've got some Wiki pages up with some results of some filetype tests that I did. Trying to see which of the office formats can be opened normally & viewed
