Tomorrow, ThinkFree is announcing a partnership with EditGrid to integrate EditGrid's spreadsheet service into ThinkFree's Web-based office suite. EditGrid's free, Web-based spreadsheet service will take the place of ThinkFree's Quick Edit Calc application. Both services are Webware 100 nominees in the Productivity category.
With the partnership comes a profit-sharing agreement between the two companies; however, the real icing on the cake is for ThinkFree users who will get to use EditGrid without having to sign up to another service.
While it's not a merger or an acquisition, the last memorable integration of two popular online office apps was when Google integrated Writely into Google Docs and Spreadsheets late last year. Edit Calc enthusiasts should not be too disappointed with the news, though; ThinkFree will reportedly be delivering an updated and hopefully improved version of Edit Calc later down the road.
