When you first open the app the option to add accounts is similar to that of adding emails to your mailbox.
Linked accounts have never been this easy to use. Most apps force you to save a document on your phone or have the Dropbox app installed. You would have to open the document from your Dropbox (or possibly open an email attachment) and select the editing app to open it with, but when you save it, you can only save it to your account within that editing app. With Quickoffice, not only can you choose where to save it (in any of your linked accounts or on the device itself) you can also choose the folder and name of the file. You can also select multiple files to email out at one time. It sends an email from “Quickoffice” with your document(s) attached to it. I would like to see the option to email it from one of your own email addresses through the mail app though.
Quickoffice allows you not only sync your accounts such as Dropbox, but also manage your accounts. You can save files to a different location, delete multiple files at once, easily rename files, preview files (including image files) and add/delete/manage folders within accounts. Quickoffice allows you to do more with your account than the actual Dropbox app does. The only thing Quickoffice is missing in managing your accounts and documents is an option to “Move” files rather than having to save in a new location.
Quickoffice is 10 times faster than any of the free apps like Document 2 Free or the ones I have previously bought such as Documents To Go.
The compatibility of the files modified or created in Quickoffice is perfect. When you save a new file in Quickoffice, you have the choice of what type of file you want it saved as. You can also choose which version software you want it to be recognized as created from (for example, Microsoft Word 1997-2004 or 2003). When I use Open Office on my desktop, no matter how many times I select the software type, it always reverts back to Open Document (.odf) which can’t be opened in Microsoft Word. Therefore, unreadable by any computer that doesn’t have Open Office installed on it.
When creating a new document, it allows you to choose what document type you want. You can also edit any previous documents from your accounts. When editing, you can change the font just as you would in a desktop program.
Unlike the iPhone or Android devices, when you hold to select where to enter text in a field, it does not show a little area magnified in a circle or box, but zooms the whole screen. This takes a little getting used to. However, the keyboard is easily turned on and off by a button on the bottom of the screen. So you don’t have to have the keyboard blocking half your visibility of the project; you can turn it off and it will reappear when you turn it back on.
When creating Power Point Presentations, you can arrange slides, insert text, edit text, insert shapes, and insert photos from your phone and albums. The only two things you cannot do is change the slide background and change the transitions between slides.
