Sure, you can use Google Docs on your phone or tablet for free, but what if you crave something a little more robust than Google's web-based offering? You would usually have to drop some serious cash on a full office suite in the Play Store, but today you can get a great deal on OfficeSuite Pro 5 which is on sale for just $2.99 through April 4th, a huge discount over its normal $15 price.

OfficeSuite Pro 5 comes with all the features you would expect from a full mobile office suite. For starters, it can edit and create Microsoft Office Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents. It's also a capable PDF reader with a built-in file browser. In addition to handling local documents, OfficeSuite Pro 5 can be plugged into Google Docs for the best of both worlds.

A recent design update gave the app a slick ICS-inspired interface, bringing with it ICS' characteristic action bar. OfficeSuite Pro 5 also offers a well-implemented tablet layout. This app was Amazon's free app of the day back in October 2011, and still sells for $10 there. It isn't likely this app will go free again any time soon though, so if you need a solid office suite on Android, this is a steal.

Thanks, Gary!
