Google is offering Quickoffice mobile app free for everyone having a Google account. Quickoffice mobile app is used for viewing and editing Microsoft Office files.

Previously Quickoffice was free only to the users of Google Apps. Other users need to pay $14.99 for the pro version and $19.99 for the pro HD version. However, Google announced on Thursday that the Quickoffice app will be free to anyone with a Google account.

Quickoffice apps are available for Android, iPhone and iPad as well as for Google Chrome (Beta) users.

Get 10GB extra : A good news with the announcement is that Google is offering an extra 10GB of Google Drive storage for the next two years who sign up with their Google account by September 26.

Get rid of the older version first : If you are already using Quickoffice, first get rid of that app from your Android or iOS device and download the new app.

Once the Quickoffice app has been downloaded and installed to your device, open it and after reading the instructions provided, click on Get Started.

Next, enter your Google Account credentials and allow access to the app.

According to the post by Google, within the next few days, you'll get the free 10GB of storage space in your account.

Disconnect to Connect

For the past couple of days I have been reading on Productivity Tips. Have been scouring various blogs on the same.

One thing that has caught my fancy is Digital Detox. To stay away from all kinds of Electronic Connecting Devices, especially Smart Phone.

I am constantly connected to the Internet via my iPhone. Even while working on stuff that doesn't require me to be connected to the Internet, I keep my WiFi on. And this in turn compels me to check my email or browse unnecessary stuff on the Internet.

This disrupts my thinking process or my work.

Tip: Stay Focused with this little Google Chrome Extension

Online Courses

I love the idea of sharing knowledge. Off lately, I have seen much action in the MOOCs (Massive Open Online Course). With the proliferation of the Internet amongst the masses, this knowledge sharing helps many students to get access to one of the finest courses and teachers from best universities in the world. Be it Harvard, Michigan, Stanford or our very own IITs - all these universities have started sharing their courses in an online format over the Internet.


The best thing about these online courses is that the student gets an open forum to discuss the things that they have learned in the courses. Also with the use of various tools, students can submit their assignments online and the teacher can grade the students.

Some of the websites that provide great learning resources are :
