    STAY TUNE FOR MORE APPS...

    can u guys please suggest a good office app for viewing and editing files ?
    My only requirement is it shouldn't be too big and it should not be heavy on RAM usage. A decent UI would be gr8 advantage.
    I tried microsoft office android but it seems to detect only cloud storage..i can't seem to select files from phone storage.
    which is good among these : Kingsoft office or office suite or any other ?? :)

    I have used both Microsoft office and office suite. Ms office doesn't open/render good, but office suite does a better. So I recommend OfficeSuite

    Quickoffice. Its faster than Google's apps (Docs, slide, sheets).

    Anyone having large screen device can try AndrOpenoffice for Android, it's a port for open office for Linux and it's as feature rich as office for Android can be ;-)
