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.

Nice to see i'm not the only one scratching my head. I mean why in the world would you want to edit Word docs on a phone or a tablet? Talk about the wrong tool for the job, on screen keyboards have never been great and watching folks use them i have seen how quickly they can slow you to a crawl.

I suppose if enough people just refuse to put down their phone long enough to use anything else there will be a niche for software like this but for me? that is what the netbook is for.
