QuickOffice Updated for Honeycomb.

Readwriteweb.com is reporting that QuickOffice, the mobile software suite that allows users to manipulate and edit documents on their mobile devices, has been updated to work on Google’s Honeycomb version of its mobile OS, and will be shipping a free trial version on the Xoom tablet, as well as many other devices.  The article from RWW goes on to talk about how quickly QuickOffice developed the Honeycomb version of it’s suite: it only took them two months!  A quote from the article:

To roll out its Honeycomb app this quickly, Quickoffice actually had to sent its developers straight to Google’s headquarters where they worked on the new app during the months of January and February.

That is a pretty fast rollout.  If you have this app on your Xoom, let us know what you think.  Check out the video below to see the app in action.

    I have used the spreadsheet part of this app for two days on my Galaxy Tab 10.1 (QuickOffice 4.0.24). I have:
    – Crashed it more than twenty times (in multiple ways);
    – Confused it with cell formulae that reference (gasp!) three other cells (=A6-B6+C6), giving #ERROR results when I change one of the referents, or deleted row 9, or inserted a row before row 11;
    – Had it tell me it couldn’t paste one entire row over another entire row because “the two regions were not the same size”;
    – Utterly failed to get it to allow me to copy one cell’s formula. You can highlight more than one cell, in which case you can choose Copy or Cut, but you are not offered these options if you only highlight one cell. You can Copy the text of the cell’s formula, but pasting that into another cell either crashes the app, or (obviously) doesn’t update the cell’s numerous relative references.

    Let’s just say it’s not ready for Prime Time yet…
