Google Acquires Mobile Office Solution Quickoffice

Hmmm… I wonder what this means?  Really I am surprised something like this has not happened sooner.  Its another strike at Microsofts cash cow as well as Apples iWork Suite and it is a missing piece of the Chrome OS notebooks.

Quick Office

Google Acquires Mobile Office Solution Quickoffice:

Google has announced its acquisition of leading mobile office solution Quickoffice. Quickoffice has proved to be one of the most powerful mobile office suites available and has shared success across multiple mobile platforms including Android and iOS. It’s tough to tell what Google has planned for the office suite but we’re sure it involves Google Docs, Google Drive, and a host of other productivity apps.

There’s no telling what the future will hold for the Quickoffice suite currently on iOS, as well as platforms other than Android — but one has to wonder: will Google simply kill them off or keep them after they integrate its features into their own apps? Details are bit scarce at this point but we’ll keep you updated.

Looks like Google is on another acquisition kick, as they’ve been scooping up companies left and right over the past month. We certainly welcome this latest addition and look forward to the Quickoffice integration.
