Quickoffice Replaces Office on Smartphones and Tablets

Who cares about Microsoft Office anymore? -- if you need it on your iPhone or iPad (or Android tablet or smartphone) just get the FREE Google Quickoffice -- 

Google makes Quickoffice for Android and iOS free for all, bringing Microsoft Office editing to the mobile masses - The Next Web: "As we’ve said before, however, Windows Phone and BlackBerry users are out of luck. Google is simply not interested in supporting either platform. Meanwhile, you can bet it will continue to improve Quickoffice for Android and iOS."

Quickoffice for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch on the iTunes App Store: "This free app from Google lets you create and edit Microsoft® Office documents, spreadsheets and presentations on your iPhone and iPad. Once you sign in with your Google Account, work can be saved in Google Drive, which gives you up to 15GB of free storage and lets you access your files from any mobile device or computer. "
