Earlier today I opened an excel spreadsheet from an email. When I clicked on the file it asked which app I wanted to use, documents-to-go or quick office. I choose quick office and was able to read the excel spreadsheet with no problem. However I do have a problem. No where is there an icon for quick office in my list of available applications. Without an icon I can't open the application. Quck office is not listed in my list of installed applications but it does show up in my manage applications list.
How do I execute open office on my xoom if it does not show up as an installed application?
When you first logged in to your Gmail account on your tablet, you were automatically given access to the same personal information (emails, events, and contacts) that you have on a computer using Gmail,Google Calendar™, and Contacts. If you use Microsoft Office Outlook on your work computer, your tablet can synchronize emails, events,and contacts with your Microsoft Exchange server. To automatically sync your applications data, touch> Settings > Accounts & sync > Add account > Auto-sync.
To select which apps to synchronize: 1 Touch > Settings > Accounts & sync> Add account. 2 If necessary, touch Auto-sync to turn it off. 3 Touch an account under Manage accounts to see its list of apps. 4 Touch the apps you don’t want to synchronize, like Calendar, Contacts, or Email.

I have the same question as the above person and I can't see how your response answered it and all! Still a blank slate looking for the app to open Quickoffice. I can't open it either and I want to download docs from my desktop to my xoom.
Quickoffice is preloaded on the Xoom, apps/all apps, it is there but a read only version for now. The full app will be available later to create docs. For now you can open documents sent to you.
Lewwill is right. If I look under "Settings" | "Applications" | "Manage applications" | "All" and scroll down, I see "Quickoffice version 1.0.38 - Tablet" is taking 5.77MB of storage space, 12K of which is data.
This is interesting. So apparently there are some applications that are installed kind of as services that you can see only through the settings app, but otherwise have no user interface. The only thing I can do directly with this Quickoffice is to "clear data". From the settings app there are things that can be done, "Force stop", "Cancel", "Clear Cache", etc. but they are all grayed out for this app.
Under "Permissions" it says:
"This application can access the following on your tablet:
full Internet access
make application always run, prevent tablet from sleeping"
Well, this is somewhat distrubing news for me. There is an app installed by default (Quickoffice) that is using Xoom resources that I have no control over. And even if I want to stop or uninstall it, apparently I cannot. I just tried to see if I could kill it with the ES Task Manager app I downloaded, but when I selected "services' I got a crash:
The application ES Task Manager (process com.estrongs.android.taskmanager) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again."
I suppose that 5.77 MB wasted out of 32 GB is not something to worry about, and after all, this is a 1.0 product so some rough spots are to be expected. There are still plenty resources available and the apps perform sufficiently fast.
