An unofficial port called AndrOffice should be available from the Play Store on your device.

Thank you - I'm seeing these choices: (1) AndrOffice editor DOX XLS PPT; (2) AndrOpen Office; (3) AndroXLS editor for XLS sheets; plus alot of others.

What I want to do is access my Open Office files when I'm out of the office using Carbonite, which is where all of my files are backed up. Which one of these will do that or do I have to "cut and paste" the file from my laptop to my tablet?

Thank you. I'm a VERY low tech guy!

The only advice I can give you is try one and see. I think the one to go for is AndrOpen Office - I could never use it on an 8" tablet.

Thanks for this thread! It inspire me to continue using Open/LibreOffice.

There is now an official version of LibreOffice named Collabora available for both Android and iOS devices - search the relevant app store.
