    Amazon is offering QuickOffice Pro and QuickOffice Pro HD as today’s free app of the day in the Amazon Appstore for Android. Normally the smartphone version runs $15, while the tablet version of QuickOffice Pro costs $20.


    The popular office suite lets you view, edit, or create office documents on a smartphone or tablet. It’s compatible with Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint files, and supports integration with Google Docs and online storage services including Dropbox, Box, and SugarSync.


    You can also use the app as a file manager, ZIP file viewer, and PDF viewer. While a number of Android devices ship with a stripped down version of QuickOffice for viewing documents, the Pro app is much more powerful, which is why it’s typically one of the pricier Android apps on the market.

    This isn’t the first time we’ve seen Amazon offer this kind of app for free. Last month OfficeSuite Pro had its day in the spotlight as Amazon’s free app of the day. That app also normally costs about $15.


    You can “purchase” Quickoffice Pro[​IMG] and Quickoffice Pro HD [​IMG] from the Amazon Appstore. If you click those links using a desktop web browser, you can add each item to your account, which means that even if you don’t have an Android tablet today, you’ll be able to download the app for free if and when you get one in the future.

    Thanks for the tip: tjk629

    Thanks for the heads up!!! My OG Droid is ready and waiting for its substitute to arrive - most likely the Galaxy Nexus, although I've held the Razr and it looks and feels like an amazing option. Plus, my Kindle Fire should (hopefully) be here any day now. And now I've got office software, for when I actually have to work - which, unfortunately, I'll be doing a lot of hours in the next several months.
    Thanks again! :hail::hail:

    THANK YOU!! :icon_ banana:

    I have Documents To Go (paid) which was a holdover from my OG Droid. I've been tempted to pay for Quickoffice as even the free version show documents better than Documents To Go.

    This is neat. I'm not thrilled about manipulating spreadsheets on my phone unless it's something personal but even if you don't use it all that often, having MS Office (basically) on your phone is just another feather in the hat so to speak.

    I can't get it to download on the Bionic. Other apps work fine. Maybe it's the fact that the Bionic already comes with a version on it??

    I had to go in and change 1-click payment settings to get it to work, but I've got it now. :)

    Yep. I had to do this as well. I was wondering why it wouldn't work for me at first, but then I just enabled one-click and added a valid payment method and it downloaded right away.

    Two things you want to make sure of if you've never used Amazon to download apps.
    1. Make sure you have an Amazon account first and foremost and that your payment information is correct/up-to-date otherwise the purchase/download process will fail every time as it did me until I checked.
    2. Download the Amazon App Store for Android APK from their site, not Amazon Apps or whatever from the Market - I got that and it still told me to go get the other one.

    After that, downloaded and installed fine. As I pointed out, I don't ever use Amazon for apps, so I'd have probably never seen this. Good lookin out indeed Shadez!

    No it should work. I downloaded it on my Bionic. I just had to make sure 1 click payment for my credit card was working on Amazon.

    I got it to work. I've had 1-click setup forever, but something had changed with it and I don't know why. I just went in and added a different card and set it as the default and it was good to go.

    OP, thanks for the tip. I just downloaded it and tried it for a few minutes. I have had Documents to Go for almost 2 years. Got it for $10. The one thing that it allows that Quickoffice Pro does not seem to allow is password protected documents. At least Quickoffice Pro gave me an error message when trying to open a password protected Excel file. On another Excel file that Documents to Go has no problem with, Quickoffice Pro gave me a message that "sheet type is not supported". I'm not sure what the problem was, as it did open the file. I also haven't found how to zoom to get more data on the screen, but perhaps I just don't know where to look.
