This Week at 148Apps: June 4-8

This week, 148Apps was all about Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2012. Take, for instance, Carter Dotson's report on new Xbox 360 features that may allow iOS integration: "At Microsoft’s E3 press conference, they revealed an interesting new feature that will integrate smartphones and tablets to the Xbox 360. Called SmartGlass, this is designed to operate a second screen during games, movies, and TV shows. This means that hypothetically, a game could display a map on the tablet screen, or even integrate interactive game elements like maps and play-calling in sports games.

Our kids-centric site, GiggleApps, reviewed Give A Day HD, which, as reviewer Amy Solomon states, "is a thoughtful children’s book app that helps create discussions between children and their adults about the world bigger than their families, as this app brings the topic of less fortunate children to the attention of young readers. This app is also available as an app for iPhone as well and is also part of the PlayTales Reader application."

And finally, 148Apps.biz covered the big news that Google acquired iPad app QuickOffice. Writer Kevin Stout states, "Quickoffice, the mobile document editing software (that particularly handles documents from the Microsoft Office suite well), has been acquired by Google. Announced on Google’s official blog, Google plans to intergrate Quickoffice‘s technology in to their own Apps product suite."

Connect by Quickoffice Synchronizes All Documents and Devices to the Cloud

Posted by Carter Dotson on April 17th, 2012

Quickoffice has a new app available, one that promises that no document will wind up lost on one device, or in the wrong cloud storage service.

Connect by Quickoffice is designed to let users access their data from anywhere, with automatic file synchronization. Connect comes a free-to-download native app for iOS and Android, with PC and Mac clients, and a web portal available from any web browser. Connect supports a dozen cloud services at launch, including but not limited to Dropbox, Evernote, Box, Basecamp, and Microsoft SkyDrive. Files can be accessed from any device synchronized with the service, with remote access available to these devices as well. Files can be shared to social networks, and there is peer collaboration available through a commenting system. Importantly, all files created and edited through the service will retain their support with Microsoft Office formats.

Connect by Quickoffice comes in three tiers of service. Basic lets users view documents, access cloud files, have five shared folders, sync two devices, and sync up to 5,000 files for free. Premium adds document editing, an aggregated search, unlimited shared folders, 4 device synchronization, remote access, and 125,000 synced files, for $44.99 per year, with a $19.99 per year sale price at launch. Professional will add six devices for synchronization, file versioning, and 250,000 file sync capacity. That's a lot of files! The app is available now.

Quickoffice Launches ProSelect HD

Posted by Brad Hilderbrand on March 16th, 2012

Most businesses are struggling with the concept of enterprise mobility, or rather, how to keep track of data and keep it secure when your workforce is scattered and working from phones and tablets rather than office computers. Quickoffice is offering a whole suite of solutions with their new ProSelect HD app.

This new app support WiFi file sharing, cloud storage services, cut/copy/paste, ‘Open In’ support and SaveBack™, Quickoffice’s patent-pending API. One of the most useful features of ProSelect HD is its ability lock files in their original location, preventing users from saving files and documents in unsecured locations and potentially causing loss or leakage of data. The app also supports native iOS file encryption and email, which makes it very easy to integrate onto an iPhone or iPad.

The app is available via Apple's Store Volume Purchasing for Business and costs $29.99. Anyone interested should get in touch with Quickoffice via email and send along their Apple Program ID.

Quickoffice for iPad Adds PowerPoint Editing

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.

It's not as complete an office suite as its primary competitor, but Quickoffice is clearly the winner in terms of overall usability.

QuickOffice Connect Mobile Suite for iPad Released

While Apple was undoubtedly first with their top quality office productivity apps for the iPad, I hear they had an inside advantage, Documents To Go and QuickOffice haven't been but a couple months behind.

Documents To Go was updated recently to a universal version -- meaning it's optimized for both the iPhone and iPad. So if you had the iPhone version, you would get the iPad version for free. QuickOffice decided to take a different route. But, what they've added may make it worthwhile.

Released just earlier tonight, QuickOffice Connect Mobile Suite for iPad has all of the features of the iPhone version, but rather than just expand all of the on screen controls to allow the app to fill the screen, QuickOffice have made redesigned it somewhat to take advantage of the iPad with newly redesigned controls.

QuickOffice have made it clear that they are not done innovating and adding new features to this app. And I look forward to see where it goes. QuickOffice for the iPad is available now at an introductory price of $9.99.

QuickOffice to bring e-mail attachment editing in their next update

Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: SOLID BUSINESS APP :: Read Review »

We've just heard from QuickOffice, the leading giant who provides office software for mobile phones, that soon iPhone and iPod Touch users should be able to edit their e-mail attachments on-the-go. This a feature that has been lacking on the iPhone natively since day 1.

Currently, Documents To Go can "talk" to mail and retrieve attachments for editing (only .doc and .docx supported at the minute - excel promised soon): however, only through Microsoft Exchange. Whilst this should accommodate many, QuickOffice hopes to accommodate all. For those who do use Microsoft Exchange for their mail, Documents To Go with Exchange Support is available for $9.99 (£5.99). For those who don't, the best work-a-round at the minute is provided by QuickOffice themselves, who take on an Air Sharing-avec-Office role where a user can add files from their computer onto their iPhone for editing provided that they are on the same wireless network. I spoke to the QuickOffice team, and they said that "we understand the ability to open email attachments is an important feature many users want and [we] are excited to be adding this capability."

This is rejoicing news for Blackberry users who have long had the ability to receive an attachment, edit it and send it back within a matter of minutes. Whilst the App Store's "Business" section has been flourishing of late (as has 148Biz), it is surprising to see that it has taken this long for this feature to be available to the public.

We'll keep you posted as we get more information - and we'll have a review ready as soon as we can. QuickOffice is currently on the App Store for $19.99 (£11.99) and - of course - the new update will be free.

Note: current review is of an older version.

Quickoffice emulates what we think of as an office suite on a desktop. While you probably won't wish to constantly edit documents on the go, it is definitely an office suite that is robust enough to meet most users' mobile needs.
