Spreadsheet software app for iPhone/iTouch recommendation needed.

I am very disappointed with the way Google Docs Spreadsheet works on my iTouch; it's virtually useless because of it's rendition of the SS and poor editability. Any recommendations for replacement apps or work arounds?

You can try zoho spreadsheets. However, I have no idea how they work on a iTouch.

I think Goodreader might be helpful for this - google docs usage is a paid add-on. It says you can download and upload but I'm not sure whether that means you can also edit. I haven't used this addon but I am liking Goodreader for reading large pdfs.

Response by poster: I was not aware of Zoho Spreadsheets, and it looks pretty cool. However, I was unable to do any editing while using the iTouch Safari app. I could be doing it wrong, too! Thank you.

Goodreader is useful, but I've found it can be pretty slow dealing with Google docs, plus, it doesn't let you edit spreadsheets and just displays them with the built-in viewer provided by the iPhone OS.

Zoho Creator lets you create "apps" using a desktop browser with forms you can use to enter tabular data on a mobile browser. I just tried it though and it is a little clunky.

A quick search for "Google Spreadsheet" in the app store turns up about a dozen apps at a variety of pricepoints (including a few with free demos) that look like they might fill the bill.
