I'm not sure about other devices, but I can't find an Out of Office setting on the iPhone.  I got used to being able to set my OoO from my Blackberry.  This is one of the few things that has felt like a big step backwards when I got the iPhone!
Seems like it should be simple to add a panel to the Settings -- just like TweetDeck and OpenTable have done with their apps.  This could be tied to the Lotus Companion app if ActiveSync can't accomodate it.

Oops, I should've withdrawn this after IBM added OOO to their Traveler app!

We actually ended up going with the Extracomm OOO because it allows junior admins to set OOO for end-users easily as well. They also recently added a Notes widget so users can lookup OOO status for other users...pretty cool.

I also saw the iOS 8 includes OOO via ActiveSync natively. Pretty simplistic but it should do the job, assuming Traveler will support it by the time iOS 8 launches.
