CloudOn, the service which previously brought the full Microsoft Office experience to Android tablets, is now available on some phones. Yes, that means you have Office on your phone, in your pocket, and everywhere you are. That could be quite useful.

For the moment, however, the company is only supporting a handful of handsets:

  • Samsung Galaxy S III
  • Samsung Galaxy Nexus 4G
  • Samsung Galaxy Nexus
  • Samsung Galaxy Note
  • Samsung Galaxy Note II
  • Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket

Notice something about that list? Yeah, they're all Samsung phones. That's really not much of a surprise, as Samsung is undoubtedly the largest and most popular manufacturer of Android phones, but you'd think CloudOn may have at least considered a couple of other brands, as well.

Alas, they didn't. But it's not about what they didn't do, it's about what they did do. And they brought a fantastic product not only to a new form factor, but even more Android devices. Head below to check it out.

    My nexus 7 is also compatible ;)

    For some reason, when I go to the Play Store on my 'puter, it tells me it's not compatible with my Galaxy Nexus (VZW), but *is* compatible with my old HTC Incredible (OG!). And when searching for it in the Play Store on my GNex, it doesn't show up at all. WTH?

    Edit: Just checked their site, and it says that the "Samsung Galaxy Nexus 4G (LTE)" *IS* supported? So why is the Play Store telling me it's not compatible? And why is the store telling me it's compatible with an old HTC OG Incredible?

      Go home, CloudOn. You're drunk.

    • Nick Schiwy

      Are you on some funky ROM on your OG incredible because mine is on a stock based ROM and it's not about that life haha I just assume like Cam said, CloudOn is drunk.

      • usnmustanger

        Nah, haven't even used my Incredible in ages. It's just still on my Google Play account because I never bothered to take it off. Good to know I can install some supposedly incompatible software on it, while my GNex, which is supposed to be compatible, can't install it.

    Ahem... APK please :)

    why is this not compatible with the SAMSUNG nexus 10?

    • http://www.facebook.com/nathan.borup Nate Borup

      guess it is because its not "galaxy"

      • tobiasmann

        Because the app doesn't support screen resolutions higher than 1280x800 on Android! It is annoying.

        • http://www.facebook.com/nathan.borup Nate Borup

          that is retarded

  • jmu33

    my transformer is supported by my VZW g-nex isnt?!?!?!?!

  • squiddy20

    Just for comparison purposes, it shows up as compatible on my Sprint Galaxy Nexus. Besides the obvious (Verizon vs Sprint), I wonder what the difference is?

    So always have a samsung phone handy for these occasions...

  • http://cashd00d.co.cc/ WHAT?

    Says it is available for my OG EVO, but not my EVO LTE. Ok then.

    They seem to have fixed it. I have just installed in my old Motorola Defy running 4.1.

    From what I understand is a remote screen to an office app running on the server, right? So, if you are offline, you are out of luck, and if you're on a mobile network, you can expect your phone to go hot like hell, right?

    First attempt to use revising a spreadsheet and it only allows a 2 digit number input. Same thing happens on repeated efforts to use the app. Highlight a cell, enter a number and whatever you enter is constricted to 2 digits only. Not a great start here.
