Quickoffice Updates Its Android Smartphone Application With Additional Word, Excel and PowerPoint Editing Capabilities

Quickoffice Pro Version 4.1 Offers Enhanced Functionality for Android Gingerbread, Froyo and Eclair Smartphone Users Looking to Increase Their Productivity On-the-Go

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - Jul 27, 2011) - Quickoffice®, Inc., the global leader in mobile office productivity solutions, today announced a new update to its Android productivity application, Quickoffice® Pro v4.1, on smartphones running Android operating system versions 1.6-2.3. The latest user enhancements and features will be rolled out across its Word®, Excel® and PowerPoint® editors, Quickword®, Quicksheet® and Quickpoint® respectively. Quickoffice Pro for Android continues to evolve rapidly to include advanced editing features that improve the mobile Office experience on a smartphone. Among the top improvements, consumers can now view footnotes and endnotes in Word documents and leverage easy-to-use formula builder enhancements in Excel.

Quickoffice Pro enables users to access, view, edit and share Microsoft® Office files on the device or in the cloud through integrated access to Box.net, Google Docs, Dropbox, Huddle, SugarSync and MobileMe accounts. In addition to the application's advanced editing features, the latest update brings enhanced image rendering and improved document loading for 2003 and 2007 files for an improved user display experience. Within Quickword, pictures are cached to save memory, enabling faster document load time and enhancing scrolling capabilities.

Quickpoint offers a new range of editing features, including: undo / redo for picture insertion and deletion; shape background editing; improved bullet rendering; and insert shapes and render vertical text in a presentation. For users who mostly work on Excel spreadsheets, Quickoffice Pro v4.1 features a control redesign, which lets users actively edit inline, selecting and scrolling through different cells, rather that double tapping on different cells to make edits. Combined with the new formula builder that automatically activates when users edit inline and contextual input capabilities, consumers are able to quickly and easily revise cells for a more streamlined Excel editing experience.

"The Android market continues to be an exciting platform as new devices appear from various handset manufacturers," said David Halpin, VP of engineering at Quickoffice. "We continue to seek ways to innovate essential features that will enhance, streamline and evolve consumers' mobile Office experience. Our latest update does just that, building new and exciting capabilities into our comprehensive application."

Quickoffice® Pro is available in the business category for a promotional price of $14.99.
