After the rumors about it coming, Well, it’s finally here — the promised update to Quickoffice HD that brings document editing to HP’s webOS slate. Available gratis for TouchPad owners, the overhaul enables text formatting in Word docs, in addition to enabling cell and function editing in Excel spreadsheets. Unfortunately, editing of Powerpoint presentations is sorely lacking, but that’s nothing another update can’t cure, right?
While the future of webOS is still yet to be determined (following HP’s recent corporate announcement), we want to share with our loyal webOS users that, indeed, we are rolling out our planned update, which includes editing for Word and Excel files.
Quickoffice HD adds editing capabilities (for Microsoft Word and Excel) to give you more abilities to draft and update documents. Formatting options include changing font type, color, size, underlining, italics, and bold in Word, and formating cells and using functions in Excel. In addition, the free update includes many performance and multitasking enhancements.
