A new desktop app expands Quip's word processing and spreadsheet software to desktop computers, giving users a way to collaborate without needing a web browser open. The Mac, iPhone and iPad app also works with Apple's Spotlight search and Handoff features to move files back and forth.
Founded by Bret Taylor, who is the former CTO of Facebook and Google App Engine creator, the company launched two years ago with an iPhone, iPad and web app that handled collaborative word processing only. Since then, it's added support for spreadsheets and expanded to 30,000 businesses, including high-profile customers like CNN, Instacart, Al Jazeera and Wealthfront.
The quip is sleek and attractive, which has helped the toothbrush attract a wide audience among aesthetically-minded consumers. But how does it stack up against similarly-priced competitors from Gleem, Smile Direct Club and Philips Sonicare, as well as drugstore budget cheapies from Arm & Hammer, Colgate and Oral-B?
It may not be the most comprehensive or feature-rich of all the electric toothbrushes on the market, but it's easy to use and offers a good value.
