Quickoffice is a popular "office" program for Android and iOS which allows you to easily open and edit office documents and in the past has cost $20 bucks. Now that Google has acquired Quickoffice a few months back they've decided to make it free to anyone who has a Google account and saves you having to buy a Office365 subscription or pay for some other "office" suite. Quickoffice might not be the most powerful office suite out there, but the price sure is right. Arstechnica has more details.
Today Google made Quickoffice—its app for creating and editing Microsoft Office documents—free to all users of iPhones, iPads, and Android devices.
Quickoffice was bought by Google a year ago, and it has provided editing of Microsoft Office documents in their native formats on mobile devices for more than a couple of years. The app cost $20, but Google made it free to companies that are paying subscribers of Google Apps for Business. With today's update, it's free to everyone with a Google account, whether you pay for a Google Apps subscription or not.
