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.

Legal woes between Apple and Samsung may impact iPhone 4S sales in Europe

Apple vs SamsungSamsung and Apple are embroiled in a bitter legal battle which could start to impact European sales of iPhone 4S contracts.

The row began earlier this year when Samsung was accused by Apple of copying elements of the iPhone in its Galaxy range of smartphones and tablets. The firm has attempted to block the release of the Galaxy Tab, Galaxy S2 and Galaxy Ace in different countries through the use of injunctions. In return, Samsung hit back. The Korean manufacturer’s latest attempt was in France where they had tried to get an injunction to stop the sale of the iPhone 4S. The court disagreed and said Samsung should pay 100,000 euros of Apple’s court costs. It is just the latest in a string of battles which have been fought in the US and Europe.

Top Reason Why You Should Not Buy Galaxy Tab or Any Android Tablet Right Now

Top Reasons Why Not to buy Galaxy TabIf you are planning to rush in to your nearest electronic store to buy Samsung Galaxy Tab or Olive Pad,  then Don’t Complain if you are left with an obsolete Android Tablet when the Android 3.0 codenamed “Honeycomb” gets rolled out in the coming year.

According to Andy Rubin, The Creator of Android Operating System –“Honeycomb is the next version of the Android platform, designed from the ground up for devices with larger screen sizes, particularly tablets. We’ve spent a lot of time refining the user experience in Honeycomb, and we’ve developed a brand new, truly virtual and holographic user interface”.

In short, According to Rubin, Honeycomb is the Android version specially targeted towards Tablets, and According to Bobby Cha, Managing Director of Korean consumer Electronics Firm Enspert – Google’s new Android Honeycomb tablet OS will require a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor to run properly. This means the current crop of Android tablets on the market, like the Galaxy Tab, won’t be able to upgrade their software to Android 3.0 when it’s available. as they don’t have ARM Cortex A9 Processors.

Google introduced Honeycomb running on a prototype Motorola device last month, but they’ve kept the hardware requirements under wraps. Cha also confirmed that the Motorola tablet would be the first to market with Honeycomb.

If this is true, Google will have two parallel software paths for tablets, at least for a while. With their Cortex-A8 processors and 1,024×600 screens, the popular Samsung Galaxy Tab line of Android tablets run the “Froyo” version of Android, 2.2, and can be updated to Gingerbread, 2.3, but not to Honeycomb.

So, if you’re buying a Galaxy Tab today, you’re buying a technology that will be obsolete in the next few months. So Techie WhizKid recommends you to wait until Samsung launches the Galaxy Tab 2 Tablet.
