In an announcement on their blog today, Google unveiled the purchase of popular productivity suite- Quickoffice. The application, which is available for iOS and Android, includes support for text, spreadsheets, presentations and is compatible with Microsoft Office.
In the blog posting, Google's Engineering Director, Alan Warren, writes that "Quickoffice has an established track record of enabling seamless interoperability with popular file formats, and we'll be working on bringing their powerful technology to our Apps product suite." In addition, Google looks to capitalize on the application's large userbase and add them to the Google fold.
While Google has recently made great strides with their Google Docs apps, this latest acquisition is likely a response to Microsoft's upcoming Office 15 which should support Windows PCs, Phones and ARM-based tablets. As such, the combination of Google Docs and Quickoffice should only serve to provide a great productivity solution for mobile users everywhere.
