View many document types in Mail on 2.0 iPhones iOS devices
Although a first solution for this problem is already available in the App Store, there are still some shortcomings (no landscape, no iWork docs) apparent in this app. I'm fully convinced we'll see this app in much better shape soon, but until then do this: Simply send the docs via email to yourself.

That's it - you can view a lot of document types in Mail -- even in landscape mode.

I'm running FileMagnet on my touch which works well but lacks landscape and some file formats. FileMagnet is available at the store and is cheaper than ReaddleDocs.

I've been using Filemagnet also and find it works very well. They have promised more file types, landscape mode, and so forth. Good price, also. Works only from a Mac, so Windows and Linux users are out of luck. Costs $5.

Windows users are out of luck in soooo many ways beyond not being able to use FileMagnet!!

FileMagnet

I also use FileMagnet, and it works very well! I'm looking forward to the developer improving it (but not over-complicating it) over time. One obvious shortfall is the lack of landscape mode, as previously mentioned.

Sounds like making a gmail account for file storage for the iPhone might be a good idea. Is there any way to ensure that attachment files are downloaded to the iPhone?
