OpenOffice.org and Microsoft Office document viewing application for Android
OpenOffice.org and (with limitations) Microsoft Office 2007 document viewing application for Android-based devices. It allows opening office productivity application documents located in the filesystem, e.g. on sd card, as well downloaded documents, files on Dropbox, or documents files attached to an email. It offers zooming in and out of documents, searching inside documents as well as copying text from documents. And it even offers reading text documents (.odt, .sxw, .docx) aloud.
The following file formats are currently supported:
- OpenOffice.org 2.x and 3.x formats: .odt (Writer), .ods (Calc), .odp (Impress)
- OpenOffice.org 1.x formats: .sxw (Writer), .sxc (Calc) (no support for embedded images)
- Microsoft Office 2007 formats: .docx (Word), .xlsx (Excel), .pptx (Powerpoint)
- Other formats: .txt (plain text), .csv (comma-separated values)
Please note that some restrictions apply for viewing documents:
- Displaying the document is done via a conversion to HTML, which is why the document will look differently than if viewed with a desktop office productivity application
- Large files will take very long to open, or sometimes not open at all
- When displaying images, only those images will be shown where the image format is supported by the Android browser
- Password-protected documents cannot be opened
Ad-supported version, need to be online when viewing documents, so that ads can be loaded. Permissions required for displaying the ads.
