OpenOffice for iPhone

Postby dsky » Sat Aug 15, 2015 9:49 pm

Are there any plans to write an iPhone app for a fully editable version of Open Office? I've installed OOReader on my phone, but I still must use a Microsoft Office product to do editing. Even if the Microsoft products are free, it still means I'm using two different platforms to get the work done; and they're not 100% compatible.

There are no plans to implement an office suite on a phone.

That's too bad. It looks like Open Office is going the same route as most other corporations, such as Microsoft: It reaches a point where it's not interested in giving its users what they really care about. Your curt & very impersonal reply, Villeroy, is about par with what we get back from companies who don't want to be bothered with us anymore.

AOO is developed by volunteers, not a corporation. If you need a version developed for the iPhone, then find developers who will volunteer to do it.
AOO 4.1.5 on 64-bit Windows 10 and Manjaro Linux

We volunteers on the Forum give of our time and expertise on a pro bono basis. In consequence we tend to be terse and to the point. The question posed has been answered already quite a number of times on the forum; a little searching would have found such replies.
