Google Offers Free Quickoffice For Android & iOS

Wednesday, October 2nd, 2013 by | Filed Under: Android, iOS, Smartphones

Google wants you to use Quickoffice on your mobile device and they’re willing to give it to you for free.

Quickoffice was previously a paid app, though it had been made available for free a few month ago for Google Apps for Business Customer.  Now Quickoffice is available as free download for your Android or iOS device. The only catch is that you have to have a Google account.

In a statement on the Google Drive Blog, the company said, “Everyone likes free stuff, which is why starting today we’re making Quickoffice available for free, for everyone. With Quickoffice, you can edit Microsoft® Office documents across your devices, giving you the freedom to work with anyone no matter what hardware or software they’re using. Quickoffice also integrates seamlessly with Google Drive storage so you can safely access your files from anywhere. And while the easiest thing to do is simply convert your old files to Google Docs, Sheets and Slides, Quickoffice gives you another way to work with people who haven’t gone Google yet.”

The app allows users to create and edit word processing, spreadsheet and presentation files and access those files from Google Drive across multiple devices. Users can also open and view PDF files and attach files to e-mails.

 Google also promises a number of new features including the ability to creat .ZIP folders and view Excel and PowerPoint files. The one app will work across both tablets and smartphones.

To download for an iOS device, click here. This version will work on iPhones and iPads.

Previous versions of the apps have been removed from  Google Play and Apple App store. Google says those with previous versions can continue to run them, but suggest that they move to the new app to take advantage of the new features.

They also warn that the earlier versions of Quickoffice Pro and Pro HD are not fully compatible with iOS 7 and some features may not work.

After March 31, 2014 cloud storage services will not be available for Quickoffice Pro and Pro HD.
