ODT-Viewer for Windows Phone

Postby apiecha » Thu Oct 08, 2015 4:22 pm

Dear ladies and gentlemen

I have been using oo for years now on my PC. Now I own a smartphone with windows phone 8.1 and I miss painfully any possibility to open (not to speak: to edit) odt-documents (and ods) on this device. Any helpful hint to solve this problem would be appreciated! (Converting all my documents to doc or xls is not really a solution...)

Thanks in advance!

Whether somebody takes on the challenge of creating a Windows Universal (UWP) application that reads/edits ODFs remains to be seen. It would be interesting to see, but I’m doubtful that Apache or TDF will spend resources on a client for this platform…
