Quickoffice Connect Offers Usable, Simple Document Access
by P. J. Connolly
Work with Word Documents, Excel Spreadsheets and Text
Quickoffice Connect Mobile Suite allows users to work with documents in a variety of formats, and access cloud storage services including Dropbox and Google Docs.
Work with Microsoft OpenXML Documents
Quickoffice Connect can use the XML-based formats introduced with Office 2007, or the binary formats used in earlier versions of Excel and Word.
Change Appearance on the Fly
Quickoffice Connect allows users to change the appearance of data in a worksheet by modifying the type style, data color and format, or cell background and borders.
Select Fonts and Weights
Although limited in its font support, Quickoffice Connect for iPad makes it a simple matter to change the font for a block of cells, or for just one cell.
Clean Up Text with Ease
The contents of cells can be formatted at the flick of a finger, allowing users to easily align text in a range of cells, invoke word wrap functions or reset to the default for the spreadsheet.
Functions at Your Fingertips
The logical and mathematical functions in Quickoffice Connect are easily accessed, and are classified for quick reference by users.
Make File Transfers over WiFi
Devices running Quickoffice Connect Mobile Suite can transfer files when connected to a WiFi network; a user ID and password can be required if a slightly greater level of security is desired.
Select a Sheet
Multisheet Excel documents can be used with Quickoffice Connect; flipping through the individual sheets is done through tabs on the iPad version, and this option page on iPhone.
Insert or Delete Columns and Rows
Inserting and deleting columns and rows from a spreadsheet is a basic operation, and Quickoffice Connect makes this task simple.
The Quickconnect Settings pane in the iPhone version of the app allows users to choose a default format for new documents: either "classic" Office binary or the Office OpenXML formats introduced in Office 2007.
