Quickoffice Connect Offers Usable, Simple Document Access

by P. J. Connolly
It's awkward to have to break out a laptop in a crowded airport just to make minor changes to a document, but the Quickoffice Connect Mobile Suite makes it possible to get into the details from the screen of an iPad or iPhone. Excel spreadsheets and Word documents are easily created and edited, documents can be moved across WiFi, and cloud-based storage providers can be used with Quickoffice, without pain. Although there are many options for reading and editing documents created with the legacy file formats of Microsoft Office, Quickoffice Connect can also use the Office OpenXML formats introduced with Office 2007. For users who simply need remote file access and viewing capabilities, the company also offers the free Quickoffice Connect, and when advanced editing is on the menu but remote access isn't, there's Quickoffice Mobile Suite at $4.99; the full-blown Quickoffice Connect Mobile Suite is available from the Apple iTunes App Store for $9.99.
