Quickoffice for Android and iOS update rolls out

Quickoffice for Android and iOS has been updated, propelling the app to version 6.0.1. While the utility had earlier been compatible with the iPad, this upgrade has caused it to evolve so as to support the iPhone for the first time.

Solely targeted at Apps for Business customers, the revamped software authorizes users to interact with those who haven’t crossed the Google Docs threshold. It serves as a bridge between the office suite of Google and Microsoft. What’s more, it also draws together Drive contents falling under ‘Shared With Me’, ‘Starred’ and ‘Recent’ along with showcasing subfolders.

Moving on, the app in question permits creating, viewing and editing Microsoft office tools such as Word documents, Excel spreadsheets and PowerPoint presentations. By employing this, users can opt to modify colors, fonts and backgrounds as well as attach pictures. Over and above this, functions of this utility even allow crafting, altering and managing Drive folders, converting text to speech and vice versa, in addition to other such benefits.
