Quickoffice for Android has now been updated to version 5.0. The new update could be found on Android Market, though curiously Amazon’s Appstore for Android still lists the older 4.x version number. With version 5.0, which we previewed on tablets about a month ago at CTIA Fall 2011 in San Diego, California, there’s an improved user interface, more cloud support for connecting to various cloud storage systems, and support for Microsoft’s latest Office 2010 file formats. You can find out the latest changes and features in the press release below or in our preview video:

Social sharing and publishing integration is now also available to consumers and enterprises alike, as Quickoffice connects with popular social networks, such as LinkedIn, Yammer, Facebook, Twitter, Scribd, Slideshare and Dosctoc.
Quickoffice Pro and Quickoffice Pro HD offer three powerful editors in one, including:
- Quickword – font support, open Office 2010, create numbered and bulleted lists, superscript / subscript, updated UI controls
