QuickOffice for Palm OS has been around for ages, fighting a constant battle with DataViz’s Documents To Go(usually having cooler features first, but being a bit harder to use and slower than its competitor). When DataViz managed to win Palm as an OEM customer, things began to fall apart quickly. QuickOffice brought native file support to Palm OS(BIG kudos)…and left to S60 shores. Let’s see if QuickOffice for S60 is a kick-ass office suite like its Palm OS sibling was a few years ago:
While QuickOffice can be opened from any other S60 application, it also has a GUI of its own. This GUI mainly consists of a file/folder browser:
A list of recently-used files speeds up finding…well…the files that were used last. This can be very helpful when editing multiple documents:
QuickOffice 4.5 CAN create documents on its own – if it is registered(screenshot below). Unregistered versions of the QuickOffice can NOT create files of their own:
Last but not least, the main GUI also contains a tool that can be used to download updates and evaluation versions of new programs from the internet:
Overall, QuickOffice 4.5 has a very clean GUI that does what it should – exactly what one expects from an office suite!
