Quickoffice Pro for Android gets cloud storage, improved document editing
Quickoffice has updated its paid Pro app for Android yesterday, bringing it to version 4.0. The company says this is the biggest update of its Android application yet, and many new features have been added. Perhaps the most notable is the added ability to save files in the cloud. This works Box.net, Google Docs, DropBox, Huddle, SugarSync, and MobileMe accounts.
Additionally, Quickoffice Pro now has better editing features, it loads files faster, and scrolling and zooming have been made seamless. Contextual search has been integrated throughout the app, and the overall performance of Quickoffice has been improved. You can also easily share files via email or Bluetooth now. All three of the app's integrated editors -- Quickword for text documents, Quicksheet for spreadsheets, and Quickpoint for presentations -- have received support for text cut/copy/paste and undo/redo actions.
Quickword has also gotten a floating contextual toolbar, the ability to insert images into documents directly from the camera or from the gallery, paragraph alignment, and a find and replace feature.
Quicksheet now has shortcuts to math calculations, and lets you insert and remove rows and columns. You can also add, rename, and remove worksheets, as well as follow and edit hyperlinks. The new find and replace feature has also made its way into the spreadsheet editor.
Quickpoint now lets you insert, remove, and rearrange slides, edit text inline on a slide, insert, remove, and resize images, move or resize shapes, edit speaker notes, follow hyperlinks, as well as select and format text.
Quickoffice Pro 4.0 works on devices running Android 2.0 or newer versions, and costs $7.99 for a limited time (the normal price is $19.99). You can download it from the Android Market.
