Editors' review

Quickoffice gives you the ability to open, create, or edit Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint files on your iPhone or iPad. With this app, you can complete any task on the go, no matter what MS Office created the document you're working with.

Pros

Full editing features: This app offers a complete set of editing features for MS Office documents. In Word, for instance, you can track changes, or accept or reject changes made by others. Spell-check and Dictionary features are both fully functional, and you can quickly edit PowerPoints or make notes about each slide as you go.

Email integration: You can email documents straight from the app, and attaching multiple items is as straightforward as it could possibly be. Also, all documents attached together are automatically zipped to save space when they're sent.

Cons

Excel on iPhone: While the iPad screen gives a good view of Excel spreadsheets, opening them on the iPhone is almost pointless. The screen is too small, and it's impossible to resize the document to make it functional to look at. Switching to a horizontal view doesn't improve viewing much, and it also makes the toolbar across the bottom of the interface disappear.

Bottom Line

Quickoffice is free, and it works well, with the minor exception listed above. Overall, it's probably more comfortable to use this app on the iPad, but the iPhone works fine for everything but Excel. If you often need to create, view, or edit MS Office files on your Apple device, this is a great option.

    "Fantastic App!"

    October 21, 2011   |   By TheTechGeekster

    Version: Quickoffice Pro for iPhone 4.1.0

    Pros

    This app can read all of my microsoft docs. It's perfect for when I'm in between sales meetings and have to edit a spreadsheet or preso.

    Cons

    I really wish I didn't have to buy the iphone application separately.

    Summary

    It's worth the money

    "Can only view graphics, cusomer support non-existant"

    June 05, 2010   |   By skypilota72

    Version: Quickoffice Connect Mobile Suite for iPhone 3.0.1

    Pros

    What little it can do is very intuitive and user friendly.

    Cons

    Cannot import/export/edit graphics
    Customer support is non-existant
    Updates to App are almost non-existant

    Seems like this company has gone belly-up. Short of an automated presence online, no human presence can be found.

    Summary

    It is very sad that such an easy, intuitive and user friendly app as this isn't maintained or given even the most basic of operations and capabilities. At one time, they could have easily Been the premiere of office apps. While not quite perfect, Dataviz's Documents-To-Go is a far superior product for the iPhone.

    "It doesn't transfer"

    December 25, 2009   |   By Jabberwokkie

    Version: Quickoffice Mobile Office Suite 1.5.1

    Pros

    Looks very nice...

    Cons

    Looking good is all it does for me.

    Summary

    I can't say much about the program, because I can't use it to view or edit any of my Office documents. And the reason I can't is because it doesn't "import files via a USB plug" as your review says - it only transfers files using WiFi. Clearly I'm not the only one who has problems with this method - there are many pages of advice at the Quickoffice website on how to make it work, none of which has helped me one whit. Why can't I plug in a USB cable and transfer files between PC and device like practically every other gadget on the planet? And here I was thinking that electronic obscurity ended when I finally bought Apple. I suppose it's my fault for taking CNET's review literally. At least I'm only out $10.

    Oh, forgot to say that naturally I assumed there'd be a ton of other applications which would allow me to transfer my office files from PC to phone. But no, evidently Apple has some idea that this is the work of the devil, or the thin end of the wedge, or some such nonsense. You can use your device as a removable drive, but then you can't access any of the files from an app on your phone. It's completely bizarre!

    This is fun - I wonder how often you can "update your review"? So... it turns out my cellphone, a Nokia E52, has Quickoffice - but without any of the restrictions of the iPhone (which is actually my wife's). No problem transferring files, reading, editing etc. Come to think of it, the Nokia does pretty much everything the iPhone does - except play games - with half the bulk and cost, twice the battery life, and upgradeable memory. Oh well, my wife is happy, even if she can't use her iPhone for any of her work-related documents.

    Updated on Dec 28, 2009

    Okay, hopefully my last update. I found the email support offered by Quickoffice was very responsive, even if they weren't able to resolve my wireless connection issue. However they did finally reveal the million-dollar fix - you can email an attachment to a special server (you get 50Mb free) and then download it into the Quickoffice ap, where you can edit it and email it onward (to yourself again, if you want to move it back to your lap/desktop).

    If I could go back and change the numbere of stars I'd give them four - holding one back because, FGS, why can't you do this over a USB cable?
