Don’t Upgrade: Documents To Go, v.5.0

Ok, iPad users. Many of you know I have strongly supporting the DataViz product Documents To Go as the best office suite available for your device. They have recently updated to a version 5 release.

Avoid this update!

From everything I’ve seen, you will loose a lot of capabilities. Cloud access is broken. If you have purchased the Premium upgrade, there are problems in restoring you Premium status. I’ve seen reports of numerous other problems.

I am keeping a watch out for a bug-fix release and will let people know when one comes out. It’s been a few days, though, and still, “crickets.”

This is particularly disappointing because the products greatest strengths have been it’s compatibility with MS office. No other – not even QuickOffice – comes close and it’s ability to handle larger documents. I was really looking forward to seeing the improved presentation support.

Keep watching.
