Google Makes QuickOffice free for everyone

Google QuickOffice is an application that lets users view and edit Microsoft Office files on their mobile devices. Previously, the app was only free to Google Apps for Business subscribers, and everyone else had to pay $14.99 for the pro version or $19.99 for the pro HD version.
Now students, businesses, nonprofits, governments and consumers can all download the app for free on Google Play and in the App Store. Users can simply sign in with their Google Account to start editing Microsoft Office Excel, Word and PowerPoint files on their iPhone, iPad, Android phone or tablet.
"Quickoffice has been a part of the Google family for over a year now and we’ve been focused on making it easier for you to get work done in Drive - no matter what type of document you need to work with," said Alan Warren, Engineering VP at Google Drive in a blog post.
"Converting old files to Google Docs, Sheets and Slides is still the easiest way to share and work together, and we’re working every day to make the files you convert look better."
Quickoffice is integrated with Google Drive, so users can access their files across devices. There are also a number of new features including the ability to create .ZIP folders and view charts in Excel and PowerPoint files.

An update notification to upgrade to the new version will be sent to users who currently have the Quickoffice for Google Apps for Business app.
