Top-Grossing Mobile Office Productivity Application Quickoffice Connect Mobile Suite for iPad Brings New Functionality in Time for the Holidays

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - December 23, 2010) - Quickoffice, Inc., the global leader in mobile office productivity solutions, today announced the addition of PowerPoint editing to its complete mobile office suite for the iPad. Quickoffice Connect Mobile Suite delivers integrated editing capabilities for Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint files. Version 2.0 seamlessly integrates rich viewing, editing and creation of Microsoft Office files, an advanced file manager and mobile cloud access within one easy-to-use application. Its exclusive SmartTouch™ design technology takes advantage of the iPad's large screen display and touch interface, and ensures the application is fully optimized for mobile productivity.

Quickoffice Connect Mobile Suite for iPad delivers three powerful editors within a single application and provides mobile cloud access to Box.net, Dropbox, Google Docs, Huddle, MobileMe and SugarSync. In addition to supporting the editing of Word and Excel 2003 and 2007 files, the suite supports the viewing and presenting of PowerPoint 2007 files, and now, the extensive text formatting and graphical editing of PowerPoint 2003 files. Users are able to manipulate font type, color, size and style, along with adding, deleting and reordering slides in a presentation. Graphical editing allows users to insert and rotate common shapes, change object layering and insert and edit text boxes. Quickoffice's PowerPoint editor also enables the insertion of images, which have been saved within the app and from the iPad's built-in Photos app. Professionals can view presentations in slideshow mode on-device and on an external monitor.

"Bringing PowerPoint editing to our iPad application has been a top priority for our team. We are excited to deliver this new functionality, and improve the user experience on the iPad," said David Halpin, VP of engineering at Quickoffice. "As a company we continually strive to innovate and excite our customers, and feel it is important to differentiate the user interface between our smartphone and tablet products to address consumer expectations and take advantage of specific device capabilities. We look forward to bringing even more functionality over the coming year."

Quickoffice's proprietary SmartTouch™ design provides a series of user interface enhancements, including advanced touch controls and an intuitive way to navigate horizontally and vertically through folders and files within a single-screen view. The application also supports an external keyboard and offers a built-in laser pointer and a filmstrip preview of slides to assist professionals with making presentations on external monitors at work or on the road. Quickoffice's iPad app is currently available for promotional price of $14.99 in the Business category in Apple's iTunes® App Store.
