One of Android's most popular productivity suites, OfficeSuite, received an update to version 7.2, adding a host of new features, though most are specific to the Pro version of the app (considering how many times it's been on sale at this point, you should have it).

The gist of it is that Word docs and slides now can use shapes, spreadsheets and PowerPoint docs can be exported to PDF, and support for HP's ePrint tech has been added. All in all, these features just add to the arsenal OfficeSuite already commands, and continue to make it one of Android's most powerful document creation and editing tools.

What's in this version:

Version 7.2.1276
* Ability to insert shapes in Word
* Right to left writing in Word for Hebrew and Arabic languages
* Export spreadsheets to PDF
* Digital keyboard for easier numbers input in Excel
* Ability to insert shapes in slides
* Export of PowerPoint documents to PDF
* Grid View in the File Explorer
* Printing to HP printers (requires HP ePrint)

To get the 7.2 update for the free and Pro versions, hit up the Play Store links below.

    Does any of the other suites natively support printing of any kind?

    Buyer beware! Purchased thru Amazon in 2011, hasn't been updated since.....Dev refuses to update or refund saying Amazon screwed them....

      Several developers have had issues with Amazon, specifically the "free app of the day" giveaways. Where user downloads and installs have been extremely high and they (the developers) were not paid a cent per previously agreed to, or at least understood, terms between themselves and Amazon.

      That potentially is why some developers don't update the Amazon versions as much. But it's not the only reason.

      Keep in mind though, you really should have apps tied to your Google account and OfficeSuite Pro has been in the various $0.25 (or even $0.10) sales numerous times. I purchased it on one such occasion and the app has been regularly updated since I made my purchase some time last year.

      Buyer shouldn't beware because your situation is in no way related to the app currently being updated. You purchased it elsewhere and Amazon's decisions have left a bad taste in the mouths of many developers. Yes, it does suck for you and that really bites, but your ire should be directed at both Amazon and the developers, not just the one. (With the clear understanding that when you purchase outside the Play Store you run the risk of receiving updates at a slower pace, if at all. Buyer beware, watch where you shop. That'd be the better lesson and warning here.)

      I had a similar situation with WeatherBug Elite. Got it from Amazon (probably when it was free) and it does not seem to have updated while the version available on Google Play has been updated. (oO)
