Tom’s Tuesday Tech Tip: Take Your Office with You – On Your iPad®!

According to Bloomberg Business, the top selling iPad2® app over the Christmas holidays wasn’t Angry Birds, it was an app named Quickoffice. What’s Quickoffice have to do with Certified Legal Nurse Consultants? Easy – with more and more of my CLNC® amigos turning to the iPad as an auxiliary device, you need a way to view and edit your Microsoft® Office documents and Quickoffice provides it.

Using Quickoffice, CLNC® consultants and their attorney-clients can open and edit documents from Word, Excel and PowerPoint. It also has the ability to store, access and share documents in the “cloud” with a functioning tie to Dropbox®. At $19.99 it’s not a cheap app, but then your business isn’t cheap and neither is the cost of missing a deadline because you couldn’t get back to your computer to correct a document.

When I get my iPad3® this spring (hint, hint), Quickoffice will be one of the first apps I install and I recommend you do the same. It’s also available for phones but who really wants to edit documents on a phone? I sure don’t and I’ll bet you don’t either.

Keep on Techin’,

  1. Tom,

    The iPad2 does not have enough internal storage for large documents. How secure is ‘the cloud’ with respect to the sort of information CLNC® consultants access, review and produce?

  2. The cloud can be very secure – depending upon which service you choose. Before selecting any particular service I’d research them on the Web and see what other users have to say.
