In the cutthroat world of mobile office suites, developers are always trying to bring more features to the table so you'll pick their offering as your go-to. And when it comes to that arena, I personally can't say anyone does it better than Mobile Systems with Office Suite Pro. It's been my personal choice for, well, a long time.

Today the office-on-the-go was updated to version 7.1, which brings with it several new features, including some rather unique options:

What's in this version:

New features in 7.1:
*Oxford Dictionary of English integration (available as a separate add-on product)
*Ability to perform Google search form Word documents
*Insert image from camera (in Word/Excel/PowerPoint)
*Better compatibility with QuickSpell
*Tables resize in Word (separate branches)
*Dual screen support
*Links and Shadows support in PowerPoint
*Image replace in Word
*Improved font formatting and Autofill with cell dragging in Excel
*Improved UI in Excel sheets
*Sheets reordering in Excel

As you can see in the above list, this version has "dual screen support" – whatever that means (seriously, what does that mean? Is that an update specifically for the Sony Tablet P? Or the Kyocera Echo?). Update: Turns out "dual screen" is a reference to Samsung's Multi Window. It's as if everything is suddenly clear. Thanks for clarifying, Phillip!

Aside from that, you can now add an image directly from the camera, which is pretty neat; search Google directly from Word, and lots more.

If you already use Office Suite, head the Play Store to grab the update. If you're ready to give it a shot, hit the widget below to grab the trial – though be ready to shell out $15 for the full version once you realize that you can't live without it.

    I do all the work on PC and just use the app for proofing. .. On small screens its difficult to work

      Have you use the app on a phablet or a tablet yet?

    Dual Screen support? huh?

  • JLM

    I was going to ask what dual screen support meant as well. Maybe they know of an extended desktop feature coming to android that no one had heard of.

  • PCSievers

    Dual screen support refers to Samsung's multi-screen on the Note and S3 devices.

    I picked this up from Amazon whden they offered it free for a day. It's pretty nice. I do also really like having OnLive Desktop and just using MS Office for free.

    Google had this for $1 last year, and I bought it. This is by far my favorite Office Suite

      Bought it up for $0.10, No Regrets

    I wonder when Google will do anything good with QuickOffice?

      I really hope they do. OfficeSuite is still by far the best for actual features and usability, but QuickOffice is a much better optimized app and runs much faster on my device. If Google can update/scrap the interface QuickOffice currently has and bring it up to speed with OfficeSuite features-wise, we have a real contender on our hands.

    Is this in the Amazon version too? That one is always behind....

    Anyone know how to integrate the Oxford dictionary? I bought it from Google Play (the version just for OfficeSuite), but there seems to be no integration process.
