Last summer, search giant Google (NASDAQ:GOOGL) acquired mobile productivity app maker Quickoffice, which was at the time exclusive to Apple's iOS platform. Google has now released the popular app for its own Android platform.

Quickoffice appeals to a wide audience since it supports common Microsoft Office document formats, Word, Excel, and Powerpoint.

Google offers storing and sharing options through its Google Drive service. Quickoffice competes with Apple's own mobile iWork suite, while Microsoft has long been rumored to be working on a mobile version of its flagship productivity software package.

With Quickoffice for Android, Google is bolstering its enterprise mobility appeal.
