OpenOffice for tablets

Postby Hagar Delest » Sun Apr 21, 2013 10:07 pm

Today tablets and smartphones are more and more common. Since a lot of questions are about such platforms, here are some links coming from the many topics already active here.

The official answer (question 9):
Rob Weir in the Apache OpenOffice blog wrote:There is no port of OpenOffice for tablets. However, there are some 3rd party solutions that allow remote access to an OpenOffice session.

iPad
  • http://www.rollapp.com/openoffice, openOffice on iPad; note that this is a Web app, not an on-your-iPad app; therefore it's only usable if you have internet access
  • OliveOffice allows you to view (but not edit) odt files
  • IBM Lotus Symphony Viewer allows you to view (but not edit) odt, ods, and odp files
  • Documents 2 Unlimited by Appsverse connects you to a cloud-based OpenOffice, so as long as you have an internet connection, you can edit OpenOffice documents.

Android
  • AndrOpen Office is the world's first port of OpenOffice for Android (AndrOpen Office is not affiliated with the Apache OpenOffice project).
  • OpenDocument Reader; ODF viewer on Android. Formerly known as OpenOffice Document Reader, allows you to read your ODF documents wherever you are.
  • Androffice; Androffice is a project that aims to become an office suite for Android (a software development platform for mobile devices created by the Open Handset Alliance). In principle we are just working with the Open Document formats, used today in Open Office and other platforms.
  • Office Documents Viewer; formerly Mobile Documents Viewer. Small and fast OpenOffice.org and (with limitations) Microsoft Office 2007 document viewing application.

Connex links
  • OpenOffice.org for mobile OS Android? One of the most active topics on the subject.
  • WebODF, work with your office files in the cloud, on the desktop and on your mobile. Android market with ports to iPhone and other mobile platforms coming

A few more options for the iPad:
OliveOffice allows you to view (but not edit) odt files
IBM Lotus Symphony Viewer allows you to view (but not edit) odt, ods, and odp files
Documents 2 Unlimited by Appsverse connects you to a cloud-based OpenOffice, so as long as you have an internet connection, you can edit OpenOffice documents.

Devindra Hardawar at venturebeat.com wrote:One year after its launch, RollApp has raised $1 million of funding to build out its platform for running Windows and Linux apps on any device with a web browser (yes, even the iPad).

RollApp debuted last year at the DEMO Spring conference by showing off how its technology can run Open Office applications on the iPad. Now, with its traffic up 50-fold, in the last eight months, the company will use the funding to push its technology out of beta and towards mainstream users.

MSOffice 2013 works for sure. Reportedly, it can even handle ODF files fairly well.
Please, edit this topic's initial post and add "[Solved]" to the subject line if your problem has been solved.

In theory, the current version of AOO for Windows should work on your HP, since it is using the Windows OS.
Regretfully, the only way to find out for sure, is for you to download and install AOO and then tell us if it worked or not.
