Documents To Go, Office Suite For Android
There are a lot of office suits for Android, but one of the best (and the first) is Documents To Go. The app costs $14.99 on the market and for that you get a full featured office suite that allows you to view PDF, Word, Excel and Powerpoint files aswell as edit them (except PDF).
Once you launch the app, the main screen has 4 options, Word to Go, PDF to Go, Sheet To Go and Slideshow to go. Each application allows you to view recently used files, files from your SD card and edit them. The word document for example has a lot of features.You have formatting options that include:
- Font color
- Font size and style
- Bold, Italic and underline functions.
- Numbered and bullet to lists
- Footer and Header can be added as well
Then we have the Sheet To go app which is the mobile equivalent of Microsoft Excel. Once you open a new sheet, you’ll be greeted by the familiar Excel look with options to add 111 functions to your files, add charts and formatting functions for cells and sheets etc.
The Slideshow to go app is not as richly detailed as the other two. You can make basic PowerPoint presentations but its best you use a proper desktop app since its a lot more detailed.
Lastly we have the PDF to Go app which is a built in PDF viewer. Not much to say here, except it works great, and scrolling, pinch to zoom functionality works much more smoothly then it does in the more commonly used Adobe Reader application.
Some of you may need mobile applications to manage your documents, and Documents To Go is the best way to go. It might be a bit of a problem getting used to editing documents on a smartphone at first, but once you get used to it, its an excellent application to have and the price isn’t too steep either. Granted its a lot for a mobile application but compared to Desktop alternatives, its not bad, specially since it works great.
