Positive review Just what we needed! by anonym
Lightweight, integrated, easy to use. Just what we needed to read our odf files on android AND perform simple edits. I was starting to worry that there were no basic odf readers/editors out there for small device android (which seems crazy). Then I found OpenDocument Reader. Thank you!!! 4/5
Neutral review Bummed by anonym
While editing a document, my screen rotated. All my edits were gone. It returned back to the original. Not a good way to get something completed! 3/5
Positive review ODP rendering still not good by anonym
For ODT and ODS formats, OpenDocument Reader can open them quite satisfactorily. But for ODP files, it still doesn't display them properly. 4/5
Positive review Solid and efficient by anonym
Opens medium large files quickly and allows smooth scrolling. Obscure Chinese language characters (radicals) show up fine in spreadsheets. 5/5
Positive review It does what it says it does by anonym
I could have sworn I was able to edit before as I don't remember downloading any other OpenOffice app. but they say it was never available... so. It's an alright app. it does exactly what it says it does and not much more. EDIT: Yay! An edit fearure! 4/5
Negative review Lost two hours of work by anonym
I've been rewriting the same thing for hours now because 'oops, something went wrong'. Avoid. 1/5
Positive review reliable LibreOffice viewer by anonym
Very useful, much better than LibreOffice's generic reader. Opens password-protected files without any problems. Well worth buying full version to get rid of ads. Editing is hopeless so far, maybe that feature will improve over time.. 4/5
Positive review Pretty good. Has some issues. by anonym
With long documents occasionally just loads a blank screen (even if I leave it to load for ages) and if I turn my phone sideways it often jumps back to the start of the document and loses my place. Otherwise it is good, loads fast and so far works on all of my documents I've asked it to open. Easy to read, good zoom levels, and works in all orientations of the phone. 4/5
Neutral review Good App by anonym
Works for most uses (viewing, editing, etc.). Had a few annoying "features" like the spreadsheet app going into some kind of help view then upon closing exits the app. 3/5
Negative review Doesn't work for remote files! by anonym
Keeps saving a new local copy and loses the last change I made. 2/5
Neutral review Pretty good, but has flaws by anonym
It does a fantastic job of reading documents and loading them quickly, but there are a number of annoying flaws when trying to edit the documents. So if you just want the app for reading documents its great, if you want it to edit them its do-able but not great 3/5
Positive review Love it by anonym
Came here because office suite stupid pushy app wanted me to go premium.. Man love it and I'll pay as soon as I can to get rid of annoying commercials. 5/5
Positive review Great job. by anonym
Exactly what I need - view my Libreoffice docs and make some simple changes easily. Glad you're working on improving it, but I am content right now. Thanks! 5/5
Positive review Needed a good program by anonym
I had been trying to get a good program that does what open office does. I got everything I was looking for with this one. It's incredibly stable, hasn't crashed once on me, plus it opens any format of document I use. I love this program. 5/5
Neutral review Has some nagging issues by anonym
When temporarely switching to another app and coming back, it will show the history revision file, which gets on my nerves. When opening medium or large sized files, you have to go into the menu and select the "Reload without limit" option to sed the complete document; the app should have the smarts to do this on its own or warn the user if there is insufficient memory to do so. 3/5
Neutral review Not what I was looking for by anonym
I wanted to read odt guitar tabs, but it doesn't load the monospace font. Doesn't really work without it.. 3/5
Neutral review It's Ok could be better. by anonym
I Was able to open the document format that was giving me trouble but I have a hard time editing the changes don't stick. Then locating the document with the changes is impossible. 3/5
Negative review Didn't Work For Me by anonym
Tried to open a spreadsheet in my Google Drive, but although it loaded quickly from 0% to 54% it took several minutes to finish. Tried to edit that same document but the app froze at 82%. Tried several times with the same result. Guess I'll have to wait until LibreOffice is available for Android. 1/5
Positive review Great app by anonym
I was unable to open a document, i became so frustrated that I was about to delete it because I thought I was corrupted. So I googled odt and found this app. I was able to open the document with no problem. This is a great app. 5/5
Positive review Amazing app for a writer by anonym
I usually write my books in open office, and now I can read and edit them on my nook whenever I want. Thank you app people because this is wonderfully easy to use and it never malfunctions. Thanks =) we should be friends. Wanna be friends? No? That's alright, we can be more than friends ;) bow chicka wow wow 5/5
Positive review It's time we got a great replacement by anonym
Open souce thanks for a great product to replace word. It taks some getting used to but it does everything I need. 5/5
Neutral review I like it. by anonym
Dear Developer(s), it's great to see this. Great job so far, but you're not done yet. When editing is smoothed out you'll get 5 stars from me. Keep up the good work. 3/5
Negative review Absolute rubbish by anonym
Downloaded to make some edits to a document, saved after I was done and emailed it to myself only to find it didn't save and emailed me the unedited version. Will be avoiding this app. 1/5
Positive review Does what I needed and then some by anonym
Working on a couple of books and needed means to read and review my work on the go. I can read open office documents clearly but have not tried the edit features as I prefer to do all my writing on the laptop anyway. If I ever mess with the editor I will add to my comment at later time. 5/5
Positive review by anonym
Tried several other .odt file readers and they could not open these files sent thru gmail, even when I downloaded them individually.. Kept getting message 'you dont have an application to read this file"..It may have been my lack of understanding of HOW to do this, but with OpenDocument Reader, there was no hesitation and I didn't have to read the instructions (LOL) the app just opened the odt file....Fantastic!.... Thank You Mr. Tascchauer....A perfectly good app..... Peter 5/5
Negative review Unable to save by anonym
I sent myself a odt & ods document (& spreadsheet). Opened the document & edited it. When i clicked on save.. it went back to the old version.. & i lost all my changes. 1/5
Neutral review Good with more work by anonym
A great app. Opens well but does not save properly yet. It needs to save the new file in the same directory as the original with a date stamp. Good lite app but needs a little more work. Ran on Asus Transformer TF300T 3/5
Positive review A few bugs, but good by anonym
If you hop out of it, it'll take you back to the intro document, but otherwise works fine for reading. Don't try and edit. It won't work out. 4/5
Neutral review Read, Edit are just fine. by anonym
I need to add entries in an existing calc sheet and it won't permit. Also does not have calc capability. Not installing, yet, but it does not solve my problem. 3/5
Positive review "Something bad happened. Couldn't open file" by anonym
File opened to read. Edited the file I was sent and upon saving the edited version the message above repeatedly showed up. Hesitant about sending the error report due to the sensitivity of the document content. Will give 5 stars when I can successfully save an edited document. 4/5
Neutral review Cannot open files from sd card by anonym
This app does it's job pretty well. The only disapointment is that it cannot open files that are stored in the sd card. You have to copy them to the device storage. 3/5
Positive review Works great. by anonym
A great app that reads open office files well. Unfotunately a bit of the formatting is off but nothing that makes the file illegible. I also wish they would ban the types of ads designed to look like blinking notifications. 4/5
Negative review Works... with issues by anonym
It opens .odt files, which I needed, but it argues every time about where and how to save them, and instead of allowing me to choose any options when saving changes to the open file, it just creates a new file, saves on the internal sd instead of the external, and always names it modified-by-my-half-assed-product or something similiar. I am uninstalling. This program is too annoying with its lack of user-oriented choices 2/5
Positive review Lol same as everyone else Microsoft Office couldnt do PowerPoint templates.. igh thats just ridiculous so this app fixxed a huge problem so ummm.... thanks for the app by anonym
Thx 5/5
Positive review Works well with large documents by anonym
Especially thankfup for a good search tool. Slightly slow load though 4/5
Negative review Editing unreliable at best by anonym
It opens and reads documents well. Editing is slow, stupid, and DELETES EVERYTHING I TYPE WHEN I CHANGE ORIENTATION! No save function! 2/5
Positive review This app + Kingston Office ! by anonym
View, open, edit, create, save any document either from Microsoft office formats and OpenOffice formats and PDFs also. Exactly what I was looking for - lightweight app for viewing and editing OpenDocuments. It takes 5,3 MB of storage - fantastic. I have downloaded AndrOpen Office before, it was big (cca 50MB) and it was no good for my phone (4''), it didn't fit on screen and it wasn't well optimalized for android (interface almost like PC version and zooming was wierd) 5/5
Neutral review Does the job by anonym
Doesn't seem to want to open txt or pdf files but fine with odf open document files... which is what it's supposed to do I guess. More supported formats, more stars. 3/5
Positive review Finally an app that works by anonym
I work as a head chef so I get PDF files that won't open on my phone I down loaded all the so called PDF file openers none worked as soon as I downloaded this app I was able to view all menus and catering functions I have. 5/5
