File-management suites are a growing market in the App Store. With more people now owning iPads, the need to be productive with all your files no matter the location has increased dramatically. Quickoffice Pro HO has taken this idea a step further by not only providing a hub for a range of productivity and file-sharing services such as Dropbox and Catch, but also giving you complete access to Microsoft Office software, and allowing you to create Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents with n the app. These have all been optimized for the iPad, with touchscreen gestures that then enable you to apply standard procedures like word count and text formatting.
This sense of functionality is present on the app’s home screen, with a drag-and-drop system for managing all the files across your accounts. Indeed, unlike other file-management systems. Quickoffice gives you the power to even delete files that are not saved directly to it.
This emphasizes the feeling of organisation and productivity that runs throughout the application, which is very fitting considering the nature of what it’s trying to do.
1. NEW DOCUMENT
To create a new document, tap the document icon in the bottom menu bar, and then select the file type, which informs Quickoffice that you would like to create either an Excel, Word or PowerPoint document.
Once you’ve sealed on your document, you can start to put it together. In Word, this is as simple as tapping the page and starting to type, while noting the format tools taken straight from Word.
3. TEXT FORMATTING
As well as the options you can see along the top menu, tapping the format icon allows you to edit the font and its size, as well as paragraph layout and text colour, just like on a desktop or laptop.
Once you’ve completed your work, tap Close to bring up the save menu, then enter Save As to lame your document. This will save it to your Quickoffice iPad folder, from which you can then move it elsewhere.
5. DRAG AND DROP
Managing your files is a simple case of drag and drop. Tap and hold on a file, then drag it to one of your other synced accounts, or down to one of the animated icons at the bottom of the screen for further options.
One of these animated icons gives you the option to share a file. Drop your document on the Share icon to load a menu of destination options. Tap your choice and then confirm authorization to send your file.
