    So I finally got a decent phone and I have a need for some business apps.

    Is there a recommended PowerPoint viewer/editor?

    Also, can you recommend me a way to view Excel sheets and still have search/"Find" capability?

    Anything else I look at?

    Thanks in advance. [​IMG]

    Yes, but what does that have to do with this? I need to search a 3,000 row spreadsheet.

    If you're using the iPhone for Excel and Powerpoint editing, you're doing it wrong!

    Why not get a tablet PC?

    No sir, that is wrong. I am using an excel sheet with my CD database in it, on album per row. Dataviz' Documents to Go allows me to search the sheet for artists, titles, record labels, etc. Also I need to review ppts on the road as a consultant.

    I will probably get a tablet or better yet a Macbook Air eventually.

    AF, The native PDF / Word / Excel reader on the iPhone 4 is pretty damn good IMHO. Don't forget to get the following free Apps:

    Bloomberg
    Reuters
    FedEx
    UPS
    LinkedIn
    XE Currency converter

    and Angry Birds (I kid, I kid)

    Yeah, they really mimicked the website well on the app, one of the best free apps out there (Gilt has a great GUI too).

    Goodreader is a great pdf app if you need to read long books or text books. It has a great search function and hundreds of other great functions. Unless someone has a better alternative. I know we kid about you a lot, but I really do hope you like your new phone. I didn't peg you for the type of guy who would buy Apple products.
