Google has launched yet another conquest to expand its vast empire. Yesterday, we said that Google acquired social platform Meebo for an undisclosed sum. Google also bought KikScore yesterday in case you missed that part. But this time, the search engine giant has acquired the mobile productivity app maker Quickoffice. The latter is a productivity suite for mobile devices, which allows users to to create and edit Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents from their mobile device. And in addition to the QuickOffice Pro for Android smartphones and QuickOffice Pro HD for Android tablets, the company also offers iOS versions of the app for both iPhone and iPad.
So, how much did Google paid? Apparently the amount wasn’t disclosed. Both Google and Quickoffice confirmed the deal via their respective blogs. “Quickoffice has an established track record of enabling seamless interoperability with popular file formats, and we’ll be working on bringing their powerful technology to our Apps product suite,” Google said. On the hand, Alan Masarek, CEO and co-Founder of Quickoffice said, ” Now, we are ushering in a new chapter with Google. By combining the magic of Google’s intuitive solutions with Quickoffice’s powerful products, our shared vision for anytime, anywhere productivity can only grow.”
