Almost a year after Google acquired popular mobile office suite QuickOffice, Google opened the app up as a free service to Google Apps for Business users. A short three months later, and the app has been updated on Android, becoming free to all users in the process. (more…)
For users of Google Apps for Business, today’s release of a free version of Quickoffice is great news. Once downloaded and logged in, you can start editing Word documents and Excel spreadsheets like the boss you are, then save directly and share through your Google Drive account. Until Google Drive can natively open those types of files and edit them, this is a fantastic workaround that paying Google Apps users will appreciate.
If you fit into that category, go grab it from Google Play.
QuickOffice, one of the top office suites on Android, has been acquired by Google, the Mountain View based company announced this morning. Your immediate reaction is probably the same as ours – “Time for Google Drive to get some much needed love and polishing.”
Google wouldn’t mention Drive specifically, but they did have this to say:
Today, consumers, businesses and schools use Google Apps to get stuff done from anywhere, with anyone and on any device. Quickoffice has an established track record of enabling seamless interoperability with popular file formats, and we’ll be working on bringing their powerful technology to our Apps product suite.
We aren’t sure how much longer they will continue to keep QuickOffice up and running, but Google is looking forward to welcoming their team and users to the party.
Quickoffice Pro is one of the most popular, yet highly priced Android apps available. For $15 it gives you access to many cloud storage services for grabbing files on the go, editing documents, and a list of features that is sure to get any office readers we have excited. For today only, Amazon is offering the application for free. You don’t want to miss this one.
Any thoughts on which apps Amazon should promote for free next?

We sat down with the folks at QuickOffice yesterday at CTIA to preview the newest version of the tablet and smartphone app dubbed version 5.0. It’s a pretty massive upgrade that introduces a variety of features for the business travel in all of us.
Along with some UI tweaks that add to the polish, QuickOffice is including a new sharing feature. That’s right, you will be able to share your work with colleagues on Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, etc. They also tossed in some additional cloud services to help round out their portfolio – most notably are Evernote and Catch.
They told us to expect the update in mid-November at the same prices you are seeing right now. More pictures after the break. (more…)
QuickOffice Pro HD for Honeycomb came out yesterday, and already the 30% off coupons are starting to roll out to those that signed up when we told you to. And remember, this is an additional 30% off of the $14.99 introductory price, so you end with a final price of just $9.99. Not a bad deal on a $24.99 full office suite for your Motorola XOOM.
And I’d drop the coupon code right here in the post, but I want to make sure that everyone who signed up early has a chance to get their order in first. As many of you know, when we post up coupon codes, they tend to get squashed by the host within a matter of minutes. If someone were to post it up in the comments though, I cannot stop that. (Hint…)
QuickOffice Pro HD for Honeycomb is now available for the business users in the building. It’s starting out at an introductory price of $14.99 (regularly $24.99), but if you signed up for that 30% off discount we shared a week or so ago, you may be able to get it even cheaper once those codes are sent out since they claim it will work on the “introductory” price.

Quickoffice Pro HD for Honeycomb is nearing a release, and if performing work actually sounds like something you want to do on your XOOM, then you may want to take advantage if this opportunity. If you sign up at the Quickoffice site to receive notification of the release of their Android 3.0 office solution, you should see a 30% off coupon when the app goes live. From what I’ve been told, the app will be on display at CTIA next week, and then available to everyone just a few weeks later.
