Quickoffice® Unveils Custom-Built Mobile Office Suite for Latest Android Tablet Devices

Optimized for Larger Screens, Quickoffice® Pro HD Utilizes Smarttouch™ Technology and Delivers Powerful Microsoft® Office Editing Features, Visuals and Graphics

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - March 28, 2011) - Quickoffice, Inc., the global leader in mobile office productivity solutions, today announced a newly designed application for Google's Android Honeycomb OS, catering to the tablet's larger form factor and touch user interface. Called Quickoffice® Pro HD, the mobile Office suite delivers desktop-like creating, viewing and editing capabilities of Microsoft® Word, Excel and PowerPoint files. Utilizing both Quickoffice's proprietary SmartTouch™ technology and the unique capabilities inherent in Google's Honeycomb platform, the app offers a compelling single-screen, multi-pane document view for a richer user experience on tablets.

In addition to feature-rich Office viewing and editing capabilities, Quickoffice Pro HD comes complete with a proprietary and custom-built Connected File Manager with integrated access to cloud storage partners, including Box.net, Dropbox, Google Docs, Huddle, SugarSync and MobileMe, all within an intuitive file browser. The newly designed user interface leverages native Honeycomb elements, like an action bar, contextual toolbar, fragments, text-to-speech and dictation with speech input functionality. The action bar provides users with quick access to common functions, contextual options and navigation. The contextual toolbar changes to reflect options based on the context of what the user is currently doing. Quickoffice also integrated Android's fragments to enable users to interact with multiple panes independently of each other, all within a single screen view.

Quickoffice Pro HD offers three powerful editors within one easy-to-use application, including:

  • Quickword® - page layout editing; quick page scrolling to jump to pages in large documents; insert/resize/rotate images from camera and gallery; text-to-speech; undo/redo; and dictation with speech input
  • Quicksheet® - formula builder; edit directly in cells; add/remove/rename worksheets
  • Quickpoint® - format text; create new presentations; insert/remove slides; full screen mode with manual flick scroll and automatic change of slides; rearrange slides; and insert/remove/resize/move images from camera or gallery

"We are excited to debut our innovative custom-built Android Honeycomb tablet application, as its distinctive user interface takes advantage of both the latest OS capabilities and the tablet form factor," said David Halpin, VP of engineering and product development at Quickoffice. "We recognize that tablets are creating a new mobile Office work paradigm, and our application further enables this by offering a comprehensive experience with streamlined creation and editing of Microsoft Office files, as well as integrated access to cloud storage providers."

Beyond integrated cloud access, tablet users also have the option to access and share files via email or Bluetooth. Within the file browser, consumers can drag and drop to send, delete or move files. Quickoffice also supports local and remote search of files with its integrated Quicksearch function to help increase productivity on the go. Consumers can also leverage the tablet's HDMI output to present presentations when a larger screen is needed.

Quickoffice comes pre-loaded on Motorola's XOOM tablet and consumers have the option to upgrade for full editing and cloud access functionality for an introductory price of $14.99.
