Microsoft won't make Office editing free on iOS/Android, so Google does
Quickoffice probably won't be as good as Microsoft, but now it's free.

Today Google made Quickoffice-its app for creating and editing Microsoft Office documents-free to all users of iPhones, iPads, and Android devices.
Quickoffice was bought by Google a year ago, and it has provided editing of Microsoft Office documents in their native formats on mobile devices for more than a couple of years. The app cost $20, but Google made it free to companies that are paying subscribers of Google Apps for Business. With today's update, it's free to everyone with a Google account, whether you pay for a Google Apps subscription or not.
