Android tablets are amongst some of the most popular portable devices on the market today. They are known for their usability as well as advances in technology and more often than not, most devices run Windows as their operating system. What this really means is that most computer users are going to be used to using Microsoft Office and other services that come fast with Windows OS.
It probably is one of the easier ways for anyone to write a document or spreadsheet but when it comes to most tablet PC’s, very few can run Microsoft Office. In fact, there are none and the only Office Suite program on offer with the Android Tablets and the iPad’s will be OneNote.
OneNote however was only released a few months ago now so it’s still very much new to Android however, there doesn’t seem to be any word of the rest of the Microsoft Office Suite being offered to Android or the iPad. This means that now Android and iPad users are going to have to look for other apps which can do the work of the word processing for Android users which aren’t all that difficult. In fact, there are many different apps which are on offer for Android users.
The first and maybe one of the more popular options would be Kingsoft Office. This looks set to be doing similar work to Microsoft Office such as word processing and spreadsheets also from Excel and files can be viewed through .pptx, .doc, .docx, .ppt and xlsx file format. Kingsoft Office does also allow users to easily edit, create or share documents; and this app is completely free which might appeal to a lot of Android users. What is more, Kingsoft Office can work with Microsoft Office 2003 and 2007 formats and Android users will also be able to view PDF files.
There is also QuickOffice HD Pro as another alternative to Office Suite. This is actually award winning software which is very impressive to say the least especially since that very few software programs make the grades of today. Any document can be created, edited and viewed quickly and simply without any trouble at all and even though it’s just not that long in being launched, it does go well with Android.
The best idea with QuickOffice HD Pro has to be the fact that it is quick. Everything that is done through QuickOffice is done as it says in the name – quick. This app does work perfectly with most portable devices including Android so if any user is looking for the best alternative to Microsoft Office, QuickOffice might be best to use. The price is not all that expensive either with it only costing around twenty dollars so it could be money well spent.
However, Google Drive could be another alternative to Office Suite to use. It’s Google Docs or as its now knows, Drive, looks to be one heavy competitor for Office. There is the possibility of using offline editing and it does allow importing and editing very easily. Google Drive does have a few problems over compatibility though it could still be an app to look at.
