Postby Brumvondel » Tue May 10, 2016 6:18 am

Hallo everybody,

I am just trying to install OpenOffice on my iPad Air 2 but i am not shure that it would work quite well. I have not found any resources so i would like to ask in this is possible.

Kind regards

The System Requirements for Apache OpenOffice on the official AOO downloads page does not list iPad. A Google search for openoffice ipad should find unofficial sources if they exist.

I have OOReader on my iPad and iPhone. You can display documents and save them as PDF, but you can't modify them.

Search for open office in the app store.

You can use Office 700. This is a specific port based on OpenOffice.
But not free of charge: 3,99 € through the App Store

How is the performance on the iPad Air 2? I have one but never considered using OO with it. Also, is Office 700 worth the 3.99?

Hi again guys,

I've taken the time to answer my own question about the performance of Office 700. Overall, I'd give it a 72% grade. You shouldn't use the Office 700 Lite which is the free version. The limitations on the free version just goes to show you the developers were pulling a "freemium" move to get us to buy the paid version. I do have some reservations about the app and it isn't perfect. You can't use macros for example. But it does the trick if you're looking to do some light work on the go. I took the liberty of writing up a little review about my experience of Office 700 on my (French) blog which you can read if you'd like http://vilaingeek.com/openoffice-dispon ... ieusement/ (use Google translate if you can't read French) :oops: .

Thank you @Bidouille for sharing the resource !
