Quickoffice is commonly used in smartphones and tablets. It is available on Barnes & Noble's Nook Color, a more advanced version of their Nook electronic reader. There was a project to port Quickoffice to Chromebooks in February 2013, and the port released as a Chrome extension named "Office Editing for Docs, Sheets, and Slides."
Quickoffice, Inc., a company in Plano, Texas, founded in 2002, originally developed the free QuickOffice and paid-for QuickOffice Pro and QuickOffice Pro HD apps.
On June 5, 2012, Google acquired Quickoffice, Inc., along with its team of developers, for an undisclosed sum. Google re-released Quickoffice as a free app on September 19, 2013, and includes it with its Android operating system from version 4.4 KitKat.
After having integrated the features of Quickoffice into its own newly released Google Docs, Google Sheets and Google Slides apps, on 29 June 2014, Google announced that Quickoffice would be discontinued, and had since been removed from the Google Play Store and App Store.
