We all interact with lots of files on a daily basis — everything from documents to spreadsheets to presentations. While we sit at our computers, creating and editing these files is easy, but the minute we go mobile, everything about this “easy” process goes from painful to nearly impossible.
Enter the cool integration between Evernote and Quickoffice Pro HD, a mobile office solution for your iPad.
When you connect Quickoffice Pro HD on your iPad to your Evernote account, you’ll be able to open any Office file contained in your Evernote account, make whatever changes you want, then save the updated version back into Evernote.
This partnership is all the more useful now that we’ve removed our free user file type restrictions.
After downloading Quickoffice Pro HD to your iPad, find Evernote by tapping the “+” button in the lower left corner of the app. You’ll be asked to sign into your Evernote account and authorize the app.
Once synced with Quickoffice, you’ll see your Evernote account as a drive on the dashboard. Your notebooks will all appear as folders when you tap the drive. To edit a file saved in your Evernote account, tap on it. When you’re done, tap ‘Close’ in the upper left corner. Your changes will then be saved back into your Evernote account.
If you wish, you can also save your document as a PDF and send it into Evernote.
Be more productive with Quickoffice Pro HD and Evernote
Whether you’re heading back to school or working on a big project, we have some suggestions for how to make the most of this new integration:
- Get work done on the go: Update documents while you’re traveling between home and the classroom or your office and the gym.
- Collaborate on projects: make changes to documents in Quickoffice Pro HD, save to your Evernote account then drop it into a Shared Notebook so colleagues and teammates can all have access to the latest version.
- Manage your workflow: Make changes and edits in Quickoffice Pro HD and have your updated documents available everywhere that you use Evernote.
- Don’t be tied to your desk: Running out of a meeting early but need to wrap up your notes, or project plan? Drop the document into your Evernote account, finish working on it on your iPad on the plane, and email it to your colleagues or professor.
- Add content into Evernote from your iPad: If someone emails you a Word doc, you can open it in Quickoffice Pro on your iPad, mark it up with your thoughts or edits, and save the updated file into Evernote as a new note with an attachment.
