AndrOpen Office
A full Office suite for Android

AndrOpen Office is "the world's first port of OpenOffice for Android".

The suite has all the usual OpenOffice components: Writer (word processor), Calc (a spreadsheet), Impress (presentation graphics), Draw (a drawing tool), Math (equation editor) and Base (database).

The program can open a wide range of formats: Word (DOC/ DOCX), Excel (XLS/ XLT/ XLSX/ XLTX), PowerPoint (PPT/ POT/ PPTX/ POTX), OpenDocument (ODT/ ODS/ ODP/ ODG/ ODF), Photoshop (PSD) and many others (RTF, CSV, SVG, EMF/ WMF, TIFF and more). Your documents can then be edited and exported in a range of formats, including PDF.

The original OpenOffice was built for desktops, of course, and unsurprisingly the interface is more difficult to use on small screens.

The developers have made various tweaks to address the problem, though. Some icon sizes are larger, you can scroll with a swipe, zoom with a punch, preview some documents full screen.

Version 2.7.7a (Changelog):

Improvements
- Reduce app size
Bug Fixes
- Fix for repeating backspace key with external keyboard
- Fix for full screen
- Fix for inversed inputing


 

Verdict:

It's awkward to use on small devices, but that's no surprise. AndrOpen Office is improving all the time, though, and if you can't (or don't want) to use a web-based Office tool then it's useful to have around.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.11

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's new in 2.16.11?

 - Due to a bug in iOS 10, your notification sounds may not properly play until you restart your iPhone (press and hold the power and home buttons for 10 seconds).
- In groups, you can now mention specific people to get their attention by typing the @ symbol and choosing someone from the picker. 
- When forwarding messages, you can now send to multiple chats at once 
- Ask Siri to send WhatsApp messages or place WhatsApp calls (iOS 10+) 
- Answer WhatsApp calls right from your lock screen, just like a standard phone call (iOS 10+) 
- A new Widget lets you quickly jump to a recent chat or see which chats have unread messages (iOS 10+)
