Google has acquired QuickOffice, a company that works on office productivity solutions software for mobile devices. QuickOffice lets users edit and share Microsoft Office files from their mobile devices. QuickOffice Pro HD from the QuickOffice stable was a top grossing iPad app in the App Store. It has a 4.1 star rating in the Google Play Android app store.

Quickoffice can enable seamless interoperability with popular file formats, and Google engineering director Alan Warren says the technology will be integrated with the Google Apps product suite.
