Google says that Quickoffice is meant for business users who haven t yet started using Google Docs and still depend upon the traditional Office suite on their PCs. Using Quickoffice, these users will be able to create new or edit Word files, Powerpoint presentations or Excel sheets when on the move and save it in Google Drive.
In addition to the above, Google has also made it easier to access your files from within the app itself. All you have to do is sign in with your Google Apps for Business account and you will be able to view your files categorized under Shared with Me , Starred , Recent and any subfolders in the Drive. Google also adds that Apple device users have the added advantage of being able to open and edit Office files directly from the Drive app.
Google has moved in fast to capture the market for an Office suite on mobile devices as it is widely known that Microsoft too is planning to launch a mobile version of its popular Office sometime this year.
