Google has its own editing app for
documents called Google Docs, but this only works with Office files like
.doc, .xls and .ppt on a desktop computer. The search company currently
doesn't have a mobile editing program for Office documents, hence the
recent Quickoffice acquisition.
Quickoffice is a mobile app that allows users to edit Microsoft Office
documents on their devices like smartphones and tablets. This will allow
Google to offer both Google Docs and Quickoffice for all a mobile
Android user's document editing needs.
