Google makes Quickoffice for iOS and Android free plus more (UPDATED)

In an aggressive move to compete with Microsoft, Google today made document editing software QuickOffice free for iOS and Android. The professional version of the software, which previously called $19.99, allows users to edit Microsoft Office documents on their mobile devices.

Google bought QuickOffice in June 2012 for an undisclosed price, bringing the company a popular mobile productivity suite that integrates with Google Drive storage. As part of making QuickOffice free, anyone who logs in to a Google account from Android or iOS by Sept. 26th will get 10 GB of free extra storage in Drive for two years.

Quickoffice is available for Android and iOS.

Apparently there is so much traffic to itunes for the app it takes several error tries before getting through.  Just keep trying.
