QuickOffice have today released a new offering in the name of “QuickOffice connect” and by the first glance, it’s not even needed and appears to be really bad in terms of value for money.
The new offering appears as a “free” version which allows you to view documents, sync up to 1GB of files on their own “Drive” offering between 2 devices. This seems okay, except if you actually want to edit anything then you should upgrade to the $44.99/year offering for the premium version. Yup, that’s a year (currently at $19.99 for a limited time) and that gives you 25GB of storage.
However, you may think “it’s a good product, surely it’s worth that”, well it’s not. You can still buy the unlimited QuickOffice pro for a one-time payment of $14.99 which already beats this new offering, plus if for some reason you wanted to pay for storage then Dropbox offer enough for documents for free. (99.9% of people won’t be creating 1GB PowerPoints).
If you are still crazy enough to have a look at the app, here you go
