Former Facebook CTO Launches Quip for iOS, iPad and Desktop

A modernistic word processor, Quip allows for sharing of document editing using iPhone, iPad or the web. And this extends to a long list of mobile and desktop devices. Bret Taylor, the former CTO at Facebook, who built Quip from the ground up, also helped in the creation of Google Maps. He accomplished this feat of engineering in tandem with Google Maps co-founder and former technical member of Google App Engine team, Kevin Gibbs. They have officially annouced to launch Quip via a blog post today. Bret's company has raised $15 million in funds for the venture.

They even launched an iOS app for Quip to prove that they are worthy and capable of seeing this endeavor through. The craze of using the Net on mobile devices without any clunky PC to handle is what inspired the pair. They cogitated on what had been barriers and tried to do away with them. In order to solve this dilemma they chose to build a platform where documents and messages are amalgamated in a single thread. Furthermore, these can be edited by any user from any device.

This new collaborative word processor is meant for iPad, iPhone and the World Wide Web. Pages, Reminders and Google Drive documents are all there on the menu given by the service. The folders containing them can be shared and edited by anybody. Mac owners will have to gain access to the service via a browser. Meanwhile, the iOS App comes at no cost and may be shared by five users at the same time. It offers notifications among other features. Even fairly large teams of up to 250 members may use the platform. They will require a Quip Business Plan that costs $12 per user on a monthly basis.  Quip for Android is not yet launched. But the company announced to launch it soon.

If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
