Google today announced its Business Apps subscribers can get the QuickOffice app for iPad for free. Other users will have to pay to buy QuickOffice Pro HD version that is priced at Rs 450 as this version requires users to sign in with their Google Business App credentials. Google will bring the same functionality to iPhone and Android devices soon.
Google acquired QuickOffice earlier this year to improve its online Google Docs suite of services, which was renamed to Google Drive. With QuickOffice on iPad, users will be able to access all Office files stored on their Google Drive and edit them. They will also be able to access Microsoft Office files and edit them without converting them to Google Docs.
