Quicksheet 5.0 by Cutting Edge Software

>> Read Review (Rating 5/5) <<

As I began experimenting with Quicksheet, I had a gut feeling of what my response would be: amazed. The first good sign was the installation. Simple, clear. Quicksheet will work as a stand alone application, but like the basic Palm OS applications (address, calendar, to do, memo) it really is only a supplement to a desktop application. Quicksheet works only with Excel the program that stole the spreadsheet crown from Lotus 1-2-3 way, way back.

Yes good spreadsheet
Excel interoperability is excellent.

Not perfect, but pretty good
Not as powerful as MiniCalc or Tinybits, apparently; but the interface is EXTREMELY easy to use, and the synching with Excel works great. Note: I use it mostly for tabular text formatting, and not calculations, so take this with a grain of salt. (I wish one could store more than 75 characters in a cell!)

It does what it supposes to do. Works well.

Brilliant piece of work
This was the first app I purchase for my Palm 2 years ago (v3.0) and it's remained "Cutting Edge" since. Now into v5.0 (love the free upgrades), it's does everything I want effortlessly and does it with ease.

Excellent use of Palm!
Quicksheet really puts some serious computing power in your hands. Just like the real world example in the review, I use it daily for negotiations and cost management as a buyer for a manufacturing firm. This is top notch stuff. I've tried the many cheaper apps and always come back to Quicksheet. Even the charting is useful sometimes.

Keeping score with Quicksheet
I use Quicksheet to keep track of golf scores and a ping-pong tournament I am involved in with some friends of mine. After each round, I beam the current statistics to the other players and we all have the latest standings.

Excellent Product
I do not have a need for a spreadsheet for my VDX. However, I downloaded the trial to check out the capabilities. If I ever have a need for a spreadsheet, this is the product I would purchase. Well worth the $39.95.

Even pushing the envelope, it's great
I am an "excel geek" for about 8 years. I have been able to import two sort-of large spreadsheets (one containing mileage records for two cars and the other a list of references for reading the Bible in a year). The only gotchas I have encountered are certain formulas that don't fail gracefully (e.g. trying to do a standard deviation on more than 30 entries will cause a "FATAL ERROR" reset) and occasional "freezes" (which forced me to do a warm reset). Be advised however that both of these problems occured when I was trying to create rather large sheets, when I was editing new equations. Once I finished entering the formulas for the two sheets I mentioned above, they have been working great. One sheet calculates averages and standard deviations for more than 100 data points. The other does a table lookup through a table that is over 300 entires long. Also, the desktop interface works great! This is in my top 5 pieces of software for my Visor.

Absolutely Stunning
This is an amazingly well thought out package. I used it to calculate the costs of moving house, and it highlighted an overcharge by my convayancer, whilst I was sitting in his office.

Excellent Product
I use Quicksheets 5.0 to do estimates for construction jobs. No need to haul around a laptop. With all the features of Quicksheets, I can quickly provide an estimate to a client. I keep my inventory, employee information, vehicle and equipment information, price lists, and job lists on quicksheets. It's there when I need them. $39.00 is a reasonble price for this kind of convienence. Thank you Cutting Edge.
