Andropenoffice 1.3.5 is now available.
I confirm that andropenoffice 1.3.5 is now available at GooglePlay, for free. It is a "fork" from Apache OpenOfice, the one I use.
BTW, I found out what a "fork" is: a kind of split or secession from the original developing group, by people that take the original source code and continue developing it in an independent way. This is something legal under the GNU licensing, but one could question the future (and resulting support) of such a smaller, dissident group.
A report I have read was positive, albeit it worked slow on the mobile phone of the person reporting. But the phablet from Huawei has a quadcore processor at 1.5GB (i.e. better than my NB100 Toshiba Notebook) and probably will do better. So I have to try this option. I will begin by installing it on my wife Galaxy Fame smart phone and see what happens, before deciding on the phablet. Hope it does not produce a divorce.
By the way, I am very satisfied with the Apache OpenOffice suit; I have been using it for several years and it does everything I need and more. It supports all the text formats I know and use (doc and docx included). It comes with dozens of dictionaries for almost all languages on earth, some Thesaurus and hyphenation dicts. too. I can even edit PDF files with the "Draw" component. So I do not see the advantage of moving to LibreOffice, as Apache OpenOffice is well established, very stable and continuously updated and supported by a big and active community. And I know where all its buttons are hidden. Or almost.
But it's just my personal opinion.
What are the advantages of Libreoffice that you perceive?
