Google has acquired Quickoffice, developer of the popular Microsoft Office compatible document editing suite for iOS devices and other mobile platforms. The Quickoffice series of apps allows iOS device users to view, edit and share Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents while on the go with seamless access to online file services such as Dropbox and Google Docs. While it is unclear exactly what this acquisition means for Quickoffice’s mobile application business, Google Engineering Director Alan Warren notes that Google plans to integrate Quickoffice’s “seamless interoperability with popular file formats” into its Apps product suite, and will continue to support existing Quickoffice users while it works on a more integrated experience.
