    All,

    I just received an email from QuickOffice asking me if I'd be interested in purchasing the application for my smart device. Is the app on our phone a demo or is it the full application?

    No one replied? I think it's the full version, I use it all the time and it seems like the full version. I also downloaded the trial of the newest full version, but couldn't find anything more in that, so I deleted it after the 14 or 30 days.

    I haven't seen that, but I skipped registering it. I prefer the free version that came with the phone to Documents To Go paid in how it shows Word Docs and Excel.

    Thanks MonkeyTime and aaf709 for responding... I almost forgot I posted this! I'm guessing too it is a full version since I still have the ability to use it and I've had the phone since September.

    It's a custom Moto version. In order for it to update Moto has to do it.

    Besides that you can't update it without buying it.

    What is custom about it?

    I downloaded iit this morning and love it! However now there are 2 icons in the app drawer & you can't uninstall the old one. I might use TB to freeze it...

    Custom probably wasn't the best term. You get the full version, but you can't update it without either buying it or having Moto do it.

    What's the better app: OfficeSuite pro or Quickoffice pro?
    I have Officesuite pro but since quickoffice pro is free on amazon, I'm might get that.

    I have OfficeSuite, Documents to Go and QuickOffice Pro...they all have benefits & cons...Docs 2 Go allows you to log into Google Docs but the interface seems clunky...OfficeSuite I had some FC's...right now I'm liking QuickOffice Pro...no lag, runs good on my Lapdock 100 with the Bionic

    This. At the normal price of these office apps, whenever one shows up on Amazon as free app of the day; I snag it.

    In the App itslef there is an upgrade button. I think if you upgrade from there it lets you buy it from the market... I'm guessing if you do it through that update button then you won't get the double app issue.

    Mixed reviews on this free app of the day. For instance, here's a review on Amazon from earlier today.
    Installed, found out it was a "limited functionality" app without a paid "upgrade". Now I have can't completely uninstall it. Could contain malware. At least was able to force stop it. Was still apparently running after attempted uninstall
    And that's not the only negative review. Also, the version number is lower than what comes on the Bionic, which may/may not be relevent if they are really two different versions.

    I dunno - think I am passing on this one.

    I used Docs 2 Go on my OG Droid, but when I looked at a Word doc it almost looked like it was done in Excel as there were boxes grouping things together. Quickoffice makes it look like it does on my computer. I was tempted to buy the full version until I saw the announcement that it was free today.

    But if you do it that way, you'll pay for the app. If you get it via Amazon today it's free. One says "Pro" in the name so you can tell the two apart.

    There's a couple of ways to fix that without rooting. You can use folders (or Apps Organizer) if you want to create an Office spot on your phone. Or, and I haven't tried this, you can create a folder inside the app drawer, label it something like "Apps I Use" and stick the ones you want in there. If you use Go Launcher or Launcher Pro+ you can hide the built in version from showing up in the apps drawer.

    That person is trying to uninstall QuickOffice that came stock on his DX, not QuickOffice PRO.
    They are seperate programs.

    LOL one crazy review and you're passing on a free app that has been around for quite some time? Read the reviews on the Market since the market has been around MUCH longer than Amazon's app store so MORE reviews...and show me the malware? I love how reviews accuse every program that doesn't work for them as Malware or virus! LOL...you're missing out on a GREAT app!
