Interesting to see Google doing more with Quickoffice, which it acquired in June; the suite is currently available for $2.99 for smartphones (regularly $14.99) and $7.99 for tablets (regularly $19.99; also free for the iPad, as noted in the excerpt below, for Google Apps for Business customers). Check the full post for more details on Quickoffice/Apps integration.

“Using Quickoffice to edit Office files on your iPad
Converting old files to Google Docs, Sheets and Slides is the easiest way to share and work together, but perhaps not everyone you work with has gone Google yet. To complement what you can do with Google documents, we’re also making it easier for you to make quick edits to Microsoft Word, Excel and Powerpoint files without conversion. Starting today, the Quickoffice iPad app is available for free to all Apps for Business customers, and iPhone and Android versions are on the way. With the app, you can open and edit any Office files you’ve stored in Google Drive right from your iPad.”
