Top Apple iTunes business application adds the most user-requested feature enhancements, including auto-correct in Word and copy and paste in Excel

Dallas, Texas - June 02, 2009

Quickoffice, Inc., the leading global provider of mobile office productivity software, today released additional features for its iPhone application, increasing Microsoft Office functionality while on the go. Quickoffice’s latest 1.2.0 update adds important capabilities to all four of its applications, which include Quickoffice® Mobile Office Suite, Quicksheet®, Quickword® and Quickoffice® Files.

Quicksheet enables users to view and edit Excel documents. The increased functionality now allows landscape editing, direct double-tap cell editing in both landscape and portrait mode, copy and paste columns, rows and cells, faster and easier ways to build formulas, as well as the ability to add a new sheet within a worksheet. The Word editor, Quickword, adds auto-correct, auto-capitalization, find text, adjusting indentation level of bulleted/numbered lists and paragraphs, and double tapping space bar to enter a period. New features for Quickoffice Files include slideshow viewing of images in remote and local directories and the ability to bookmark last viewed position in documents.

Quickoffice has a continued robust product roadmap and will be adding important new features such as editing support for Office 2007 files and the ability to access email attachments sent through the iPhone’s email system.

Quickoffice Mobile Office Suite, Quickoffice Files, Quicksheet and Quickword will each receive the same applicable free updates. This allows consumers the ability to choose an individual functionality with the same feature set as the full suite. The updates to the separate applications were submitted to the App Store and are expected to be available soon.
