EditGrid for iPhone Spreadsheet applications have long been used on mobile devices, but according to Team and Concepts Limited, the company behind EditGrid, none have been successful because of the lack of file synchronization and screen size limitations. EditGrid has been integrated with salesforce.com, Infoteria's OnSheet, Central Desktop and ThinkFree Online Office. Offered on a software-as-a-service (SaaS) basis on editgrid.com, EditGrid is also available in licensed packages for installation behind the corporate firewall.
