Best In Breed,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: OfficeSuite Professional 8 (App)
I am pretty impressed with this app.
it is by no means a substitute for Microsoft Office,however it gives you enough in the way of editing options to get a pretty great start on just about any project.
The word processor is,for me,the most outstanding portion of the software. The text editing and alignment. options are easy to use and translate perfectly when opened in MS Office Blue. The indentation and margin options available in OfficeSuite pro are second to none and adding pictures and media into the .docs is as easy as can be.
There is a free dictionary and thesaurus available from Mobi that integrates perfectly into the app and extends the functionality even further.
Using OfficeSuite Pro with a high end mobile keyboard (like Swiftkey X, FlexT9 or Thumb Keyboard) which has auto correction functions really gets you close to the power of a fully featured word processor.
Until this I was using QuickOffice Pro. QuickOffice Pro does not offer anywhere near as useful a word processor, and it often loses formatting when importing and exporting to and from MS Word. QuickOffice Pro does not compare to this in any way.
I own and have extensively used all of the "Officewhore" apps for the android platform,and,in my opinion OfficeSuite Pro is far ans away the best of the best.
I am disappointed to see that the updates are not free tho. I guess you have to buy each new version. Seems a little lame,but, my 3 day old outdated version of OfficeSuite Pro is still far superior to my current version copy of QuickOffice.
EDIT - This review was written a while ago......... Office Suite has since been FAR SURPASSED by Quick Office........ It happens......

I'm planning to get it for my Toshiba Thrive which runs on Android HoneyComb 3.1, so does it work with Office 2007 files and does it open encrypted files (encrypted using basic Office 2007 encryption)?

Yes, it opens encrypted files. I have one with my passwords on a docx file (Word 2007) that is opened with no problem.

I have been unable to locate where one sets margins for a page with this app. As you mention it in your review, would you be so kind as to let me know "where" exactly margin set up/formatting is located? Thanks so much!

Their Facebook indicates that upgrades are FREE for registered users. So I think your ending disappointment should now be replaced with content.

Have you looked at the permissions of OfficeSuite Pro recently? Just... wow. :(

What do you mean by that? Permissions?

(Copied and Pasted from App Page)
Request authtokens from the AccountManager.
Get information about the currently or recently running tasks: a thumbnail representation of the tasks, what activities are running in it, etc.
Write to external storage.
Access information about Wi-Fi networks.
Access the list of accounts in the Accounts Service.
Read only access to phone state.
Change the Z-order of tasks.
Get notified that the operating system has finished booting.
Open network sockets.
Change Wi-Fi connectivity state.
Manage the list of accounts in the AccountManager.
Change network connectivity state.
PowerManager WakeLocks to keep processor from sleeping or screen from dimming.
Access information about networks.
It is now basically spyware. The most troubling one is the spying permission, letting the developer know what apps you are using, and what apps you've recently used. It is none of the developer's business. And this spying business starts when you power on the device, and runs continuously in the background.
[EDIT: Clarified source of info.]

I've been reading a lot of post of all the different ones to get and from what I've read. this one (OfficeSuite) and there's another one called Kings (Sorry! can't remember) the correct name but It's Kings-------- and I'm decide between both of these and still not sure what one is best to get. Does anyone know anything about the one I can't remember the name? lol would appreciate any input anyone can give me.

I have both, as well as Quickoffice Pro, and the Pro version of Documents to Go. (The name you are trying to recall is Kingsoft Office.)
All have their advantages and disadvantages, but I personally like the Kingsoft Office because it has a built in spell checker, has a more intuitive user interface than the others (in my opinion), and the app was free.
