Amazon is offering QuickOffice Pro and QuickOffice Pro HD as today’s free app of the day in the Amazon Appstore for Android. Normally the smartphone version runs $15, while the tablet version of QuickOffice Pro costs $20.
The popular office suite lets you view, edit, or create office documents on a smartphone or tablet. It’s compatible with Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint files, and supports integration with Google Docs and online storage services including Dropbox, Box, and SugarSync.
You can also use the app as a file manager, ZIP file viewer, and PDF viewer. While a number of Android devices ship with a stripped down version of QuickOffice for viewing documents, the Pro app is much more powerful, which is why it’s typically one of the pricier Android apps on the market.
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen Amazon offer this kind of app for free. Last month OfficeSuite Pro had its day in the spotlight as Amazon’s free app of the day. That app also normally costs about $15.
You can “purchase” Quickoffice Pro and Quickoffice Pro HD from the Amazon Appstore. If you click those links using a desktop web browser, you can add each item to your account, which means that even if you don’t have an Android tablet today, you’ll be able to download the app for free if and when you get one in the future.
