Quickoffice Pro HD Offers a One App Alternative to All Three iWork Apps
The Quickoffice Pro HD app ($19.99) from Quickoffice, Inc. offers a comprehensive file and document creation and editing tool that is compatible with Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, as well as a handful of cloud-based file sharing services and online-based software tools, like Google Docs.
Using this app, you can import, view, edit, print, and/or share Microsoft compatible files and documents with ease, or create documents or files from scratch on your tablet, and then share them with other computers or mobile devices that are running Microsoft Office software.
Quickoffice Pro HD is one app with several distinct modules, used for word processing, spreadsheet management, and digital slide presentations. The word processing module, however, is fully compatible with Microsoft Word (.doc and .docx) files, while the spreadsheet module is compatible with Excel (.xls and .xlsx) files. The digital slide presentation tools built into the app are compatible with PowerPoint (.ppt and .pptx) files.
All three Quickoffice Pro HD modules can export files or documents into PDF format, and all offer AirPrint wireless printing capabilities. The app can also be used as a PDF file viewer.
When it comes to creating or editing Microsoft Office compatible files and documents, the Quickoffice Pro HD app offers robust formatting tools that allow you to easily control fonts, typestyles, page and paragraph formatting, and other elements of a file or document. The app also works nicely when holding the iPad in both portrait or landscape mode, and it supports a variety of iOS features, such as select, copy, cut, and paste.
What you’ll discover when using Quickoffice Pro HD on an iPad is that the app offers many of the same features and functions built into Microsoft Office, but the user interface and menu layout of the app, for example, are vastly different from what running Microsoft Office software on a laptop or desktop computer looks like.
However, once you get used to working with Quickoffice Pro HD, you’ll find that it offers the features and functionality you need to get work done while on the go, yet be able to maintain file compatibility with other Windows PC or Mac OS X Microsoft Office users.
