We loved Quickoffice Connect Mobile Suite for iPad when we reviewed it this summer (and boy, isn’t that a long name?). Now there’s even more to love: the app has added support for PowerPoint editing, making its feature set even more robust.
Let’s backtrack a bit. Quickoffice is a mobile productivity suite (pardon the bulky term) that allows you to edit documents on the go. It supports viewing and editing all of the main Microsoft Office file types: Excel, Word, and now PowerPoint. (Note, however, that PowerPoint editing is only supported for Office 2003 versions; the new format, .pptx, cannot be edited.) Additionally, you have the option to sync your files with a number of online services, including Google Docs and Dropbox. So the addition of PowerPoint editing adds a welcome functionality to an already robust app.
There are plenty of reasons why having a document editor on the iPad can be useful—not only does it give you access to all of your documents when you’re away from the computer, but it also lets you edit them if you find yourself with free time. On the other hand, now your iPad brings your office with you…but, c’mon, there are worse things than being a workaholic, right? If you’re interested in Quickoffice for iPad, I highly recommend reading our review. A premium-priced app, Quickoffice is available for $14.99 in the App Store.
