Popular mobile Microsoft Office suite Quickoffice has announced an update to the iOS version of its software. And the most notable new feature among the list of improvements included in this update is the new PowerPoint editing support.
It has taken Quickoffice almost one year to deliver full PowerPoint support to its iPhone app, but now mobile Apple users will have the same PowerPoint functionality as Android users.
What’s New in Quickoffice iOS Update 4.0.1
The biggest addition to Quickoffice version 4.0.1 is the aforementioned added ability for users to view, edit, and create PowerPoint documents. Past this major step, other notable new features include more advanced text editing options that allow users to alter font type, color and size; underline, italicize and bold text; and insert bulleted lists and adjust paragraph alignment.
Version 4.0.1 also lets users view presentations as a slideshow and run these over external monitiors. A built-in laser pointer will be included, to aid presenters.
There will also be support for manipulating and editing graphics, including common shapes, textboxes and images. Users will be able to rotate and resize these objects, layer them, and change fill color.
The newest version of Quickoffice has also added two new cloud partners: Huddle and SugarSync. Only Pro users have access to cloud services through Quickoffice.
Availability and Price
Quickoffice is available in two versions, Quickoffice Pro and regular old Quickoffice, in the Apple App store. Both versions feature the PowerPoint support delivered by update 4.0.1.
Quickoffice Pro costs $10, while not-pro costs $5. Existing Quickoffice users will receive the update free of charge.
