Starting today we’re making Quickoffice for Android and iOS available for free, for everyone. With Quickoffice, you can edit Microsoft Office documents across your devices, giving you the freedom to work with anyone no matter what hardware or software they’re using. Plus, it’s integrated with Google Drive storage so you can safely access your files from anywhere.

And unlike Microsoft Office, it's completely free. Good move by Google.

This might blow your mind, but some Android devices (like Asus Transformers) have keyboards. There's also bluetooth.

BTW: Is this app actually free, or is it ad-supported? Big difference.


Just tried it on my TF101 and there are no ads. I don't like that it forces me to link to my google account in order to be able to even start using this program.

As for usability, its about the same as other android office programs out there. However, I prefer the one that comes with TF101 more though.

Also, not that I want to complain about free stuff, but I think this is actually a bad move by Google. They are essentially killing the small guys that try to sell their office apps.
