A couple of years ago, the technology giant known as Google picked up Quickoffice, and after making it available for free to iOS and Android users, it is time that the curtains are brought down on this “servant” of theirs. After all, the folks over at Google has since managed to successfully port over plenty of Quickoffice’s range of features all the way to its Google Drive service, and with this in mind, Google no longer has any need for Quickoffice, discarding it in the same way that a stick of chewing gum has lost its flavor. Basically, Google will retire Quickoffice, so you will not be able to find it on Google Play as well as the App Store.
For those who will require native document editing and creation while they are on the move will be able to continue to do so thanks to Google Drive’s standalone Docs, Sheets, and Slides apps. This particular removal of Quickoffice will no doubt affect iOS as well as Android users, although we do not see it to be that big of a deal. Just a quick show of hands here – how many of you folks out there actually use Quickoffice on a daily basis, and do not mind switching over to Drive? [Press Release]
