    Quickoffice Lite

      How do you find this app on the NT?  It came up when I went to open a sideloaded book and it had been my intention to register the app but inadvertantly hit the button for register later.  I want to register it so I'll be able to get the updates to the program.  Thanks

          Quickoffice Pro is the App designed for the Nook Color and Tablet.  If you purchased the App (was $2.99) from the B&N App Store then all should be good.  If it is a side loaded version it will not contain all the functions built in to the Nook specific App.  I have been using Quickoffice for several months and find it the most useful App I have.  The file manager is worth the price (I paid $14.99 for Quickoffice Pro back in September)  Anyway, if you have not purchased the App that will provide a registered, correct version for your use.

            Maybe I can help, although I'm a newby to the Nook and tablets in general.

             

            You should be able to access it by Nook button - Apps.  If it doesn't show there, then it might be deleted somehow (which I doubt).  I've installed Quickbooks Pro and it seems to have overwritten the Lite version (which is good IMO).  It may come up automatically if you load a Microsoft Office document (like a Word document) if it's not deleted and somehow hidden in the system.  The reader for PDF files may or may not be part of the package... that I don't know, but a PDF reader is stock for the NT.

             

            The first thing I put in my NT was the full version of QuickOffice, as I do need to edit things and type up things at times.  I wish that it would work with OpenOffice files, however... which is what I use (I abandoned Windows years ago and use Linux for most of my work).

             

            Hope this helped...

                Realize you are new and just trying to help.  So apologize right now if this comes across harsh as don't mean to but it sometimes happens on the interweb. :smileyhappy:

                 

                Quickoffice Lite is NOT a stand alone app that you can open by itself via the app drawer.  It is a built in pdf reader that you only see when you try to open up a pdf file.  It's "just there" the same way the ereader software is "just there" (ie opening up an epub book.)  Purchasing QuickOffice Pro doesn't override Quickoffice Lite.

                 

                Hit the "n" button, go to My Library, then "My Stuff", then "My Files" and open up a pdf file (one you haven't associated with a default method.)  You should see Quickoffice Lite as an option to open up your pdf. 

                 

                OT: Quickoffice Pro --- yes, it is a very good app.  Don't know if you have found these yet --- you can email attachments via Pro which is pretty useful at times.  Also serves as a pretty good file manager (for the first 9 or 10 months the app store was open, there wasn't a stand alone file manager app.  Pro was a good substitute.)

                 

                Again, apologize if this comes across as harsh as don't mean to. But misinformation doesn't help anyone.
