Google to Remove ‘Quickoffice’ from App Store Soon [iOS Blog]
Google today announced that it will be removing its Quickoffice app from Apple’s App Store in the coming weeks. The move comes as Google looks to integrate Quickoffice into its Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides apps. Current users of Quickoffice will be able to continue using the app, however new users will not be able to download the app once it is removed.
Quickoffice for iOS was originally introduced in 2013 and was designed to allow users to view and edit Microsoft Office files, with its launch coming after the announcement of Apple’s iWork suite for iOS. Quickoffice also featured integration with Google Drive storage, along with the ability to create .ZIP folders and view charts.
For users looking to continue using Google’s web-based office suite on iOS, the company’s Google Docs [Direct Link], and Google Sheets [Direct Link] app can be downloaded from the App Store at not cost. Google Slides for iOS will be released in the near future.
