Has your XOOM experience just been incomplete without the ability to view Power Point presentations and Excel spreadsheets? Well, hold on to your triple mocha decaf vanilla sugar free latte, then - QuickOffice Pro HD has arrived to super-size your productivity for maximum tablet utility.

Seriously, though, QuickOffice is a must-have if you need to view formatted documents as part of justifying that Honeycomb-tablet purchase. In addition to reading Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint files (both the old 2003 and 2007+ file versions), QuickOffice Pro comes with a powerful file browser utility that hooks into your Google Docs, Dropbox, Box, Huddle, SugarSync, and MobileMe accounts to make accessing your cloud-synced documents a breeze.

QuickOffice Pro (as opposed to the Basic edition) allows you to do all sorts of editing tasks while in various documents, and has numerous additional features and performance improvements. QuickOffice Pro HD is temporarily on sale on the Android Market for $14.99, 40% off the regular price of $24.99 - so now would be the time to pick it up if you're considering it. Please note, this version only works on Android 3.0 Honeycomb, and that makes the Motorola XOOM the only stock device that can make use of this app for now.

    How about a review?

    • David Ruddock

      I'd be happy to provide one - if I had a XOOM! Unfortunately, no such luck.

        I use it and it's passable, but lacks function. Until it gets some serious updates I would choose my Ubuntu LibreOffice.

        QuickOffice HD lacks many things such as spell check and the ability to print. Not a bad effort but a long way off, especially for £10 (GBP)!

    Why does a word processor come in HD?

      It just signifies that it's for hi-res screens, compared to their regular versions.

    What about GSlate? That should also easily run this app.

    For me I would like to know how does it compare to "documents to go"?

    • http://andyhall.org Andy

      Based on what reviews are saying on the market, Docs to go appears to trump this.

    So much for the ability to edit Excel spreadsheets. My 10" Samsung Galaxy tab (Honeycomb 3.0.1) can open every MS document except spreadsheets.
    Pls tell me if there is a trick or setting that I should change as I have incurred the US dollar costs based on their promises and remain unsatisfied.

    In using QuickOffice Pro HD on my G Slate, I found I needed to open a blank sheet first and then open the sheet I want to review/edit. When I attempt to open my saved sheet first, it won't open for me either.
