  • Don't forget

    Don't forget Kingsoft Office (a Chinese company). While it's missing a few key features (like bulletted lists) this is probably the nicest looking Office suite on Android. And it is being regularly updated. In its current state it stacks up well against the other Android office suites in terms of features. If they continue their regular update cycle it should soon surpass them. Also it's free! I've got no idea what Kingsoft's ultimate business plan is, (maybe they are hoping Android users of Kingsoft Office will gravitate to their paid office suite for Windows?) but for now, at least, you don't have to pay for their Android app.
