LibreOffice launches Open Document Format viewer app for Android

The Inquirer - The Document Foundation, curator of the LibreOffice suite, has announced LibreOffice Viewer for Android.

LibreOffice Viewer is the first native application from the group to offer Open Document Format documents.

The term 'Viewer' should be emphasised at present, as the Foundation acknowledges that it is not ready for "mission critical tasks" in edit mode, and indeed users have to opt in to editing within settings.

It is an important first step, however, and the community is already working on a fuller version that offers more of the expected features.
