Google announced today that Quickoffice will be free for all users on iOS and Android. Users who download and sign in to Quickoffice before September 26 will get an additional 10 GB Google Drive storage for the next two years.
Quickoffice has been available for free to Google Apps for Business customers, and starting today, will be available to all users on iOS and Android for free. All that is required is a Google account to sign into the service. Quickoffice can create and edit documents, and handles Word, Excel and PowerPoint document extensions. It also allows you to view charts on charts in Excel and PowerPoint, along with the ability to create .Zip files.
Better integration across various platforms means that you can seamlessly switch from editing a document on your mobile device to your tablet. Files created using Quickoffice will be automatically saved on Google Drive, and you can also save an offline version of the file on your device’s local storage. Android users get a widget that allows them faster access to their files.
