UPDATED 12/30/09: Since this review, the developer hasn’t updated the app once. I had uninstalled it a while back in favor of a more robust Documents to Go. I had hoped QuickOffice would update the app to work with Office 2007 and PowerPoint. Glad I didn’t hold my breath. Sad I wasted $8 bucks.
Since there is a 24 hour return policy, I went ahead and downloaded QuickOffice for $7.99.
It’s worth the money IMO just to be able to save .doc, .xls, and .txt files from GMail to the SD card, which it does. I have a few e-mails in my inbox with attachments, which I kept in hopes of saving to the SD card someday. Now I can.
- Can save .doc, .xls, and .txt to SD card, which couldn’t be done before.
- Can view .doc, .xls, and .txt files.
- Can edit file names.
- Minor. Can’t choose which folder to save to when downloading attachments.
- Minor. Can’t download right to card, rather you have to “view” file first, then save.
- Doesn’t support .docx or .xlsx. “Yet” anyway.
- Can’t edit the files. Again yet.
It appears from the description on their site that Office 2007 support, PowerPoint, and file editing are coming at some point.
Worth the money? Yeah I guess. I’ll keep it. I’ll only regret it if someone comes out with something better for less.
