Quickoffice Connect Mobile Suite for iPad – Pride Drop to $11.99

The pricing for Quickoffice has been pretty unpredictable since its initial release in June. At one time it was $9.99, then $11.99, then $16, then up to $24, then back down to $19 and now back down to $11.99. If you’re looking for an Office style app then I would act now before the price goes back up. I grabbed Quickoffice right at the end of September and think it’s actually a better choice than Pages. If you get it at this price you get a word processor and spreadsheet tool for about the same cost as the single Apple app.

The file manager is far superior with Quickoffice and navigating documents is much easier to understand. The integration with Dropbox is also much better and cleaner. Now before people get all crazy, keep in mind that heavily formatted documents aren’t going to show up correctly in either app. The iPad doesn’t support all those fonts and the apps can’t really support all those advanced features. It’s a little unrealistic to expect it to handle all that. But what you do get is an app that allows you to create, view or edit Word or Excel documents with ease and store them on your local device or share them through Dropbox. I’ve been quite happy with the feature set and after using both would recommend Quickoffice as the better solution.

I doubt we’ll see this one drop back down to the $9.99 level so now is as good a time as any to pick up a full blown word processor for the iPad. And it looks like a PowerPoint app will be coming down the line in the near future so you will get a full suite of tools for $12. That’s a pretty good deal!

I’ve opened both Word 2003/2007 docs and Excel 2003/2007 spreadsheets without any problem. Don’t expect to handle your company’s payroll and long term finances, but you can certainly write a document and do some calculations. It’s pretty impressive and I think it will only get better over time.
