Quickoffice for Android and iPhone released for Google Apps for Business

by: Brendan LynchApril 3, 2013


As you may recall, Quickoffice was originally an independent app before it was bought by Google almost a year ago. Google then released Quickoffice to businesses that were using Google Apps, but  only users with an iPad could edit Microsoft Office documents using Quickoffice. Now, Android phones and iPhones will have the same functionality.

If your business uses Google Apps, you will now be able to use Quickoffice right alongside your Google Drive to make more powerful edits. You simply select a document from your drive, edit it in Quickoffice, and then save it back to your drive.

In addition, Google also made some subtle enhancements to how you can view files from your Google Drive. Now, under your drive files in Quickoffice, you will be able to select any subfolders that you currently have in your Google Drive, making fire organization easier.

While this release only affects business users, it is a still a welcomed addition, that removes the previous odd limitation to iPad users.

    So even if you paid for the app you don’t benefit from any updates unless you pay Google $50 a year per user for their “business apps” that are well so lackluster its not funny. I would like to see Google actually put some money behind Google Apps and take on M$ for the office suite.
