We all know how versatile and powerful today’s smartphones are, with the newest dual-core or even quad-core processor, high-end graphics card, large memory, high pixels camera, and fast 4G network, etc. If that’s so, smartphones is nothing just a powerful dumb machine. What appealing to consumers are the numerous games and apps that showing off their fun sides, like the most popular Angry Birds, Fruit Ninja, etc.
But what if you need to edit an important statement in a Word document in a hurry? What if you need to view a PowerPoint presentation while you are not in the office with computer by your side? Yes, your smartphone will help you.
Right now the two most popular smartphone systems are iOS and Android. While iOS are only used on Apple devices like iPhone, iPad, iPod, and the apps are required to pay. I’d prefer Android, because many big mobile producers like HTC, Samsung, LG, Sony, Motorola smartphones are based on Android system and the best of all, most apps are free!
Android, like other mobile platforms are not supported by Microsoft Office. So here we’d introduce some top office apps for Android for you to view, edit, and create PowerPoint on Android smartphones.
1. Google Docs
We all know the famous Google Docs online application which offers almost all the functions that Microsoft Office does for free. Now the Google Docs is part of the Google Drive, where you can store all your files in one place, so you can access them from anywhere and share them with others.
With Quickoffice Pro, you get a powerful office suite that lets you open and edit Microsoft Office documents, spreadsheets, and presentations, as well as, annotate PDF files – online and offline. But you have to pay $14.99 for this app, rather expensive, huh?
DataViz’s Documents to Go app is another popular choice for supporting Office on Android, with PowerPoint, Word, Excel and the usual file types on the compatibility list. The free version only offers reading access, with the $14.99 paid option adding editing options. It lets you import your Google Docs files, plus the Word app handles rich text, tables, footnotes and much more.
If you’d prefer a free option, Olive Office Premium does a similar job of supporting Office docs on Android. It handles Word, Excel and PowerPoint, plus docs saved in Adobe’s PDF format. It supports rich text, tables, images and charts, making Android look properly businesslike.
ThinkFree is of the best Office programs for Android that is Microsoft Office compatible. It’s pre-loaded on many phones, if it is not included on your Android phone initially, you can go to Google Play to install it. The free version enables you to view PowerPoint freely, but you need to pay for the full editing functions.
Like its desktop version of Office program, Kingsoft Office for Android offers you full-featured mobile Office for free. With User-friendly and nice UI, users are located in over 200 countries all over the world. The newest version enables you to view document file that is super large up to 100M.
Those are the best Office apps for Android that enables you to view PowerPoint presentation on your Android smartphone anywhere and anytime. The problem is that some of the PowerPoint effects will be removed like animations, transitions, so there is also another method for you – convert PowerPoint to video for viewing PowerPoint on Android with all original effects.
