LibreOffice for Android coming soon

ZDNet - LibreOffice is still chained to the desktop but it's looking towards cloud and mobile, with an Android version under development.

The next major LibreOffice desktop release is just around the corner and now the developers behind the open source productivity suite are preparing to extend it to Android.

It's taken a while for LibreOffice to break out of the desktop, but the project is now moving swiftly to deliver Android versions of its desktop modules word processor Writer, spreadsheet Calc, and presentation package Impress.

The Document Foundation on Tuesday announced it had assigned the work necessary to build the Android apps to two companies. The Document Foundation is hoping the result will be a "compelling, elegant and full-featured experience of LibreOffice on Android", Ital Vignoli, one of its founders, said.
