Slick office suite for Android devices
- Supports Word, Excel, Powerpoint and PDF documents
- Several useful features
- Supports cloud-based document sharing services
- Very easy to work with
- Functionality limited compared with MS Office
There are four main different elements to Quickoffice Pro: a word processing utility, called Quickword; a spreadsheet application called Quicksheet; a tool for creating presentations, known as Quickpoint; and a PDF editor called QuickPDF. These allow you to import documents created in Microsoft Office (in Word, Excel or Powerpoint format), or Adobe Acrobat, in the case of QuickPDF. You can also export documents you've created or edited in Quickoffice Pro into these formats.
Working with Quickoffice Pro is surprisingly straightforward. You use the on-screen keyboard to enter text, data and numbers, and access each utility's tools using the Menu button.
Features of QuickOffice Pro
Although many of the formatting options and advanced manipulation tools from Microsoft Office are missing from Quickoffice Pro, there's enough features in the suite to allow you to create decent documents. For instance, Quickword boasts things like a word count, spell checker (available as a separate download), find and replace and the ability to insert tables, images and bullets.
Another useful feature of Quickoffice Pro is a tool that allows you to retrieve and edit documents that you have saved in the cloud. The app supports Google Docs, Dropbox, SugarSync, MobileMe , Evernote and more. You can save files back to the cloud, as well as sharing them via email, SMS or Bluetooth from within the app.
If you're looking for a word processing or office solution for your Android phone, you'll struggle to find anything better equipped than Quickoffice Pro.
