Connect Mobile Suite Version 3.0 from Quick Office for iPhone OS

From now, to work while on road, you don’t require iPad. From past one year, documents of Microsoft Office are been edited by Quickoffice company for iPod and iPhones. Now a new version has been planned by the company, which works better than older one, for iPad. Still it has to work more to meet its contender DocumentsToGo from DataViz.  Connect Mobile Suite version 3.0 from Quick Office allows access services (cloud storage ones) like Drop Box, iDisk from MobileMe’s, Google Docs, and Box.net. This app is priced at $9.99 as introductory price. This is cheaper when compared to DocumentsToGo. Hopefully, price shouldn’t be increased as the functionality of this app is not very powerful as DocumentsToGo app from Data Viz.

When this app is tested on iPhone 3GS, it supported file formats of Microsoft Office version 2007. The product lineup of the Quick Office is kept shuffled, and hence we straightened it up. This app from Quick Office is flagship type. Issues like document creating, viewing, and editing for Excel and Word files (via Office 2008) along with integrating to Quickoffice connect. Sharing of e-mails, viewing attachments and transfer of desktop file over Wi-Fi is also featured by this app. This app costs about $7.99 and stands as the accepted Office app of the company for Apple’s iPhone.  Quick sheet and Quick word are local, standalone office applications which just offer Excel or Word editing, correspondingly. Lastly, Quickoffice Connect just allows the user to see documents that are stored online and is a standalone app available free.

Connect takes just 2 minutes to sign in to the cloud service of Quickoffice. The setup display appears clumsy with lot of icons showing many handsets in which none was iPhone. File transfers on local wireless is also very simple.  This app, unlike Data Viz’s app does not require a desktop client separately. There was no problem while working with many file which are kept in the account of Google Docs.

Editing files and user interface:

The look of the user interface is unproductive all over. There are 6 icons on the fixed toolbar in Quick word.  Texting is very easy as a typing experience as on other apps of iPhone. Toolbar cannot be swiped from side to side.  On landscape mode tool bar will not be visible and it reappears on portrait mode. QWERTY keyboard can be seen by simple tapping the screen.

Same problems are found with Quick sheet. It supports many excel functions that are advanced which includes many formulas, cell formatting and spreadsheet recalculations. Users prefer landscape mode to work to see many columns. PowerPoint presentations cannot be edited in Connect Office’s mobile version. Instead viewing them is allowed either from e- mail attachments or standalone files. Saving and opening intricate documents is not problematic. While showing graphics on spreadsheet Quick Sheet staggered. On the whole, opting for Quickoffice is surely a good decision if already Mobile Me is taken for the phone. When compared to DocumentsToGo suite, Quickoffice may have small gripes but not major problems.
