Best Office Apps For Android

Just a few years back, the way we worked was very different than how we manage our daily tasks these days. Many of us did not have PCs let alone a proper Internet connection. These days we have provider companies offering us a pretty standard 1mbps Internet speed but we know there was a time when we were grateful that Internet worked. Times have changed and what we see now is a radical revolution in the technology and science. But where does Office Apps for Android come in picture? It shows how much we have become dependent on our smartphones and computer tablets for our work, projects or just about anything and some are for good reasons. We have reached multi-touch gesture-based era of computing starting from microcomputers, PCs to Notebooks.

The Office Apps gratify our needs to access document files, create, edit or send them directly from our smartphones or tablets. Some of the apps are free and some are not and the ones that make the top of the lists for latest android smartphone are:

Best Office Apps for Android - Google Drive

Google Drive: This one is not an Office app technically since it is more of an online storage but recently Google has added the Doc feature on this app making it a mix of both. Google Drive gives 5GB online storage and additional features of creating, editing, and viewing document, spreadsheet and presentation files online or offline after downloading it on your smartphone or tablet.

Best Office Apps for Android - Kingsoft office

Kingsoft Office: Now, we have one more app that also offers creating, editing, and viewing document, spreadsheet, and presentation files on your device and supports cloud storages. In this app, you have features like spell check, attach pictures and graphics, print, and save as PDF. This app supports 23 kind of files like DOCX, TXT, and XLSX etc.

Best Office Apps for Android - Polaris

Polaris: This app looks good and gives the best as well. Very much like Kingsoft, they support Microsoft’s files like Word, Excel, PowerPoint as well as Adobe PDF. You can create, edit, and view your files and it supports cloud storage as well. Overall, a good-looking app with good features that is free.

Best Office Apps for Android - Documents To Go

Document To Go 3: One of the best Office apps on Play offers similar features for free and full features at a certain price. Once again, most of the files from Microsoft like Word, Excel, and PowerPoint can be accessed and viewed. But the editing and creating of those files can be done after buying the app. You can edit Google Doc files as well as view PDFs after purchasing.

Best Office Apps for Android - OfficeSuite Pro

OfficeSuite Pro: Now, this one is not free from the start. OfficeSuite Pro 7 comes at a price and offers a lot of features though it is a bit costly. There are templates and cloud storage support including Microsoft SkyDrive. You can create, edit, and view file formats of Word, Spreadsheets and Presentation as well as PDF, ZIP and TXT. This app looks a lot better than the free ones, I accept, and functions quite well too.
