    LibreOffice is the best free office suite on the desktop, and is now available on Android as a native application. The software is backed by a dynamic community, represented by The Document Foundation, a not for profit entity based in Germany.

    LibreOffice Viewer also comes with a first preview of the editing functionality, which is considered an experimental feature and not stable enough for mission critical tasks. Feedback and bug reports are very welcome, to help developers improve the quality of the application on its way to a fully-fledged editor.

    LibreOffice Viewer supports several file formats:
    • Open Document Format (odt, ods and odp);
    • Microsoft Office 2007/2010/2013 (docx, xlsx and pptx);
    • Microsoft Office 97/2000/XP/2003 (doc, xls and ppt).

    LibreOffice Viewer also offers basic editing capabilities, like modifying words in existing paragraphs and changing font styles such as bold and italics. Editing will be enhanced in the future, with the help of the developers community.

    Users are invited to report problems, using the bug tracker and attaching files that have triggered the issue at

    LibreOffice App is using the same engine as LibreOffice for Windows, OS X and Linux. This, combined with a new front end based on Firefox for Android, reads documents similarly to LibreOffice on the desktop.
