A mobile productivity suite combining chat, documents, tasks, and spreadsheets, Quip makes collaboration on the go a lot easier, enabling you to effortlessly share documents from smartphones, tablets, and computers with others.
Effective office suite: By combining document creation and editing with social chatting and sharing, Quip spares you the trouble of having to keep switching between apps when you're working on a project with your coworkers. What's more, it allows you to keep in touch with your family by allowing private sharing and family chats.
Well-featured spreadsheets: The document and spreadsheet editing options are solid enough to enable you to make significant modifications to important work files on the go. Besides, it's possible to import all of your documents from Evernote, Dropbox, Google Drive, or Google Docs in just a matter of minutes.
Convenient all around: The offline mode that enables you to work on your documents without a connection, the overall accessibility and simplicity of the controls, and the fluid interface all make this app a handy office suite that strikes a fine balance between features and ease of use.
Not customizable enough: You can change the font but not its size, and you can't change the way in which the documents are displayed or switch from an icon-based view to a list view.
Small but annoying glitches: Sometimes, when you want to open some documents, they appear as blank until your restart the app. At other times the app freezes or crashes or appears slow.
In terms of functionality and especially document and spreadsheet editing on the go, Quip does an admirable job, being much more accessible and practical than other office apps. If you work with documents daily and want to view and edit them on your smartphone or tablet and share them quickly with others, this is a great app to have.
