Last June 2012, Google acquired QuickOffice which is a mobile application drafted to work with Microsoft Office documents. It is available for both iOS and Android operating system users who want to access documents, presentations and even spreadsheets without having to open their laptops and going through a lot of hassles. More than a year later, Google is now making significant changes to QuickOffice to suit its needs in making the application more useful and the consumers’ needs for something new to try.
For smartphone users who never had the chance to try and use QuickOffice before, this is the best time to do it because Google has just released a free version which can be installed and downloaded from both the App Store or Google Play. To promote the application even more, the mentioned company has decided to give users a free 10GB of storage space on their Google Drive if they link their account with QuickOffice. This deal is due by September 26 and so Android and iOS users should now start in connecting their two accounts together.
To join the recent deal and avail of the perks, users are first required to download QuickOffice on their mobile devices, whether it is an Apple gadget or Android powered device. If there is already a copy installed, users are suggested to download the latest version and replace the old ones. According to Google, the version that they just released should be the version to download. This is to ensure that the application is and can be updated from time to time in the future. Then, when users are to open QuickOffice, they will be prompted to sign in with their Google accounts and recommended to do so before being granted access.
Google recently updated in its blog that the free 10GB will be seen in the users’ accounts a few weeks after they link their two accounts together. This can serve as another way for sharing files among colleagues without worrying about compatibility and converting. It seems that individuals usually have to go through a lot of complicated steps just to do this simple task. In addition, the giveaway space can last up to two years. For users who want to check their storage from time to time, there is a link that they can find on Google which they can visit while logged into their respective Google accounts.
