That Was Quick As Google Buys Another iOS App Developer
Google’s acquisition parade continues as it was announced today that the tech giant has purchased Quickoffice for an undisclosed sum, according to the Google Blog (via iDownloadBlog.) Less than 24 hours after Google scooped up instant message creator Meebo, they have purchased one of the best-selling office suite apps in the iOS universe, Quickoffice. Stating their commitment to continue supporting a “strong base” of Quickoffice users, Google said they will work on making the app “an even more seamless, intuitive, and integrated experience.” What wasn’t mentioned, however, is what this news could mean for Google Docs customers on the Web and on Android. Quickoffice CEO and co-founder Alan Masarek states:
Now, we are ushering in a new chapter with Google. By combining the magic of Google’s intuitive solutions with Quickoffice’s powerful products, our shared vision for anytime, anywhere productivity can only grow.First launched for iOS in 2009, Quickoffice is available in two flavors depending on the iDevice, including: Quickoffice Pro (iPhone, $14.99) and Quickoffice Pro HD (iPad, $19.99).
