Google makes Quickoffice free for all iOS and Android users

Quickoffice is now free for all iOS and Android users thanks to Google's generosity

Google acquired Quickoffice back in 2012, and has since been hammering away at the application over at Mountain View. The search giant has just announced that Quickoffice is now free for everyone on iOS and Android.




Quickoffice is optimized for both smartphones and tablets, allowing you to edit and view Microsoft Office documents that are stored on your device without compromising the format. The latest version of Quickoffice allows you to work on documents that have been saved to your Google Drive account as well, which is a huge help for anyone (like myself) who works with Microsoft Office documents, but stores them on their Drive account.


Google has done one better, offering 10GB of extra Google Drive storage for two years if you download Quickoffice from the Google Play Store before September 26 and link it up to your Google account. You know what? I'm going to do that right now - thanks, Google.
