Default Discussion of eOffice & Docs to Go?

Please Login to Remove!

There hasn't been as much discussion on eOffice and Docs to Go, considering how much anticipation there was for their latest releases. I have both, and they both have their advantages. I can't decide which is the better. One thing I have an issue with is that eOffice comes with a spell check application, and I don't mind using it from within eOffice, but it also shows up in other applications menus. This is redundant, since those other applications use RIM's built in spell check. I don't know how to turn off the eOffice spell check menu without deleting that application from the Blackberry.

Aside from that, each suite offers features the other doesn't have, and I like both GUI, evn the small icons in eOffice are well made. Has anyone really used both of these applications extensively, that can offer some insight?

eOffice and Docs To Go have been discussed a lot....

I found DTG to be quicker and more stable, I used the trial for eOffice and found it slow and not very user friendly.

I did like the fax feature in eOffice but that was about it. (it worked but it was delayed about 10-15 minutes back.)

Docs To Go also have a spell check but it is only available in the Premium version.

I also thought eOffice has way too many peices to installed and you have to install it on your desktop first, while DTG can be installed OTA and operate completely from your BlackBerry making more mobile friendly.

Fair critique. Although, eOffice can now be installed OTA. I wonder when they'll release a 5.0 version?
