How can we improve Excel for Mobile Devices

add CELL function

some functions are not working on the iPhone app since the most recent update. The CELL function and the FILENAME function no longer work with the most recent update. Please reinstate the functions that were dropped with the most recent update.

        can't the filename (or alias, there is a "name" for the file, whether or not it's the literal filename of the file you are looking at) and the sheet name be kept?

        I understand the security fears for showing folder structure, but there shouldn't be for just the file name and sheet (both of which are visible on the screen when people are editing files)

        The variability of what is and is not implemented across platforms becomes a barrier to true platform portability and independence. It is very desirable that basic built-in functions should operate the same regardless of the platform.

        There is often a desire to be able to place in cell the name of the worksheet - the use of Cell("filename",A1) is a clumsy way of doing that … but at least it works in most settings. Please make (at least) the built-in functions which are there operable on all platforms.
