Google makes Quickoffice app free for Android and iOS

Google has made Quickoffice mobile app free for both Android and iOS users, following Apple’s announcement to offer its iWork apps, Pages, Numbers and Keynote free to people who buy new iOS devices.

The Quickoffice suite allows viewing, editing and creation of Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents, and allows users to store them on Google Drive, Google’s cloud storage solution.

It’s interesting to note that after acquiring Quickoffice in June 2012, Google had made the iPad version of the app free for its Google Apps for Business customers in December. Earlier this year, it extended the same perk to Android users and made the iPad app compatible with the iPhone.
