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.

They are actually decent.

I paid for both the phone and tablet version. They were worth the cost. This new version is even better. Good job google. It sucks that it took this long, but you can actually be somewhat effectively productive on a smart phone. Actually producing, rather than just consuming.

While, I could be angry that everyone gets what I paid for earlier, I'm so glad its usable and actually makes me more productive, I consider my earlier payment a good investment.

I am looking forward to just buying a small keyboard and using my smartphone to type up some documents instead of lugging a laptop with me.

Yeah, I would love to do that as well. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find a decent keyboard in a small factor. Anyone have any recommendations?
