OfficeSuite Pro 7 for Android ($9.99) brings a whole new look that makes the app easier to use. This UI improvement, in addition to an already powerful document creation and management app makes OfficeSuite Pro 7 is most selling no1 office app for android mobile.
Using OfficeSuite Pro 7
The new OfficeSuite Pro greets users with large buttons for the four categories of documents it handles: text documents, spreadsheets, and PowerPoint presentations. Don’t be fooled by that seemingly short list. The app supports DOC, DOCX, DOCM, RTF, TXT, LOG, XLS, XLSX, XLSM, CSV, PPT, PPTX, PPS, PPSX, PPTM, PPSM, PDF, EML, and ZIP formats.
OfficeSuite Pro also plays nice with all the major cloud services, allowing you to easily sync with Google Drive, Dropbox, Box, SugarSync, or SkyDrive to the app. Documents you open through these services also appear in the Recent Documents section, but unfortunately the app does not clearly indicate which recent documents are stored locally.
The app also packs a well-designed file browser which prompts you to select or create a default location for your documents the first time the app starts up. This is a welcome change from many other apps, which provide little to no assistance in navigating the maze of folders inside your Android device. It also supports voice search.
Working in OfficeSuite
Creating and editing documents in OfficeSuite Pro 7 is extremely straightforward, though I did run into a few problems. For some reason, I was unable to italicize any text in the document editor. Beyond that, the app brings strong formatting and editing support on par with other mobile office suites for Android.
While other office suites support comments, OfficeSuite Pro highlights them by default. Comments can also be added to text easily, making document collaboration a breeze. Unfortunately, the app currently does not support version tracking, like Microsoft Office’s Track Changes feature, but the developers assure me it will be supported in a later version. I was particularly pleased with the complete features in spreadsheet mode, where OfficeSuite made editing equations far easier by including a handy on-screen editor for functions. The previous version of OfficeSuite Pro struggled a bit with PowerPoint documents, but the new version’s greatly improved interface resolves many of these issues. The app comes preloaded with several templates, and you can edit text by tapping the text boxes or editing straight from overview mode. Slide notes are added from pop-up tray at the bottom of the screen.
Too Good Looks bcoz Looks Matter
OfficeSuite Pro 7 doesn’t just look better—the improved UI makes the app far more user friendly. The developers have gone with a clean interface that puts bright buttons against a muted background. Large icons and clear descriptions make it obvious how to navigate the app, and the fresh interface makes the current version worthy of your money. Ten bucks is a fair price for an office suite that’s highly capable and simple to use.
OfficeSuite has a consistent look and feel throughout the app. Icons and text on the homescreen look the same in the document viewer, in the menus, and so on. This keeps the navigation clear and is also a mark of a quality product that takes itself seriously.
In my testing, I noticed that OfficeSuite Pro 7 could not display italicized text on Samsung devices. I’ve confirmed that this issue with the developer, who assures me that a fix will be released within a month.
This is a fairly major concern, especially because even though the app will not display the italicized text, it will appear if you open the document on another device. However, this is clearly a bug as I did not notice the issue in older versions of the software. Once the developers rectify the problem, I’ll likely revisit the app’s score.
All in all, I am very pleased with OfficeSuite Pro. It’s easy to use, but it’s also robust in what it supports. Extra care has been put into important features like cloud storage. If this app gets a spell check function — and maybe drops some of the sales pitches — it could well outmatch its older and more seasoned competitors for the title of best Office app for Android.
