Google’s Quickoffice is now available on both Android and iPhone users to edit their files on the fly.
The Quickoffice app debuted in December and was first available on iPad users only. It allows the users to make quick edits in their Microsoft Office files saved or shared by others without having to purchase expensive Office apps in their devices.
Now, the Quickoffice maker is expanding the availability of the app to Android and iPhone Users allowing them to do the same capabilities or edit their Microsoft Office files while traveling or in cases that they don’t have their laptop computers with them.
According to a blog post by the Quickoffice product manager Mark Beaton, the most convenient way of sharing old files and collaborating with peers is to convert them to Google Docs.
But the Quickoffice team are also considering people that are not on Google yet, so to aid this, “Google Apps for Business can already edit Microsoft Office files using Quickoffice on an iPad, and starting today they can do the same on iPhone and Android devices.” Beaton said. Everything from Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, quick edits is very possible whether you are in the back of the car, airports, or restaurants and save it on Google Drive.
The Quickoffice app is available in Google Play and Apple App Store for free. Files saved in Google Drive is also easily found in the Quickoffice app.
“Sign in with your Google Apps for Business account and your Drive folders view will now include Shared With Me, Starred, Recent and any subfolders.” Mark Beaton said.
