LibreOffice for Android Beta released

The Document Foundation (TDF) have announced the release of LibreOffice for Android beta in the Google Play Store, allowing mobile users to access Open Document Format (ODF) files from devices such as tablets and smartphones. The first release of LibreOffice Viewer handles text documents and basic presentations. Support for spreadsheets have been included in an early form, while support for more complex presentations is planned for a future release. Users are invited to download and test the application, although care is advised for production environments.


This app is free and allows you to view Open Document files (.odt, .odf, etc.) and a number of alternative and proprietary file formats, including the ubiquitous .doc and .docx, on an Android smartphone or tablet.

The application, created by Collabora, is available from the following link:
