Newsflash, Android users: the Google Drive/Docs app is terrible. It's just about competent enough to read the documents you've written elsewhere, but for editing and creating new Word, Excel, and PDF documents, you need something with a little more oomph. One of the best choices out there is OfficeSuite, and it's also one of the most expensive, at $15. But right now you can - and should - pick it up for a single dollar.

I've tried a lot of the Android word processor options out there, and I can say that OfficeSuite is definitely one of the best available. I wrote this article entirely on a docked Transformer Prime with OfficeSuite. While it's not anywhere near as good as having an honest-to-God laptop in front of you, it's probably the next best thing.

OfficeSuite Pro supports standard Word, Excel, PowerPoint and PDF documents in all their permutations, and can sync to Dropbox, Google Drive, SkyDrive and more. There's a built -in file browser and presentation module. It works with a dozen languages. It's even got spell check. Why are you still reading this? Hit the widget below - there's no telling how long the sale will last.

    BAM! Bought. Not a fan of "HD" versions for tablets and such, but I'll take it like this!

    Does it do footnotes? I write papers, and it seems to be the great missing feature on Android wordprocessors

    is it the same we got on amazon appstore free ap of the day some time ago?

    • Lucas Laws

      Not sure, but I know it was on a previous Play store sale because I already have it.

        True, I bought it on September 27, 2012 for $ 0,25 - so I think it was on the "25th billion download celebration sale" (or what it was...)

      Oops, I just wasted a buck.

      I go get the free app every day (I think I've maybe missed five since the launch; I have 558 total), but I rarely install it unless it's something that really catches my eye. I just checked my history and sure enough, I have this one waiting for me in the cloud. Oh well.

        I do the same.... Even if they're stupid little kid apps I'm never going to use...

        Out of curiosity though.... Do you know if there are any scripts/apps/whatever I could use to automatically purchase the free app of the day for me? That and/or the free track of the day on Google Music....I usually remember to nab both, but could be nice to have the desktop set to automatically grab it each day without me having to fuss - or kick myself the one day I miss something big & exciting...

    I have Kingsoft Office on my tablet. Is this worth "upgrading" to this one or not?

    • Sandy

      No. I have tried both, and I prefer Kingsoft. The price is unbeatable - FREE.

    Just bought it
